Welcome to Colonial House, nestled in the heart of the 605 in Rapid City at the foot of the Black Hills, located at 2315 Mount Rushmore Road.

It was the hot summer of 1981 when Bill and Sandy Beshara became the proud parents of this restaurant, now a magnet for locals and a place travelers like to land. With their son Kevin at the helm, Midwest American cuisine with an inventive flair was born and continues to evolve ensuring a robust menu honed under his “sharpest knife in the kitchen drawer” precision. His talented team of guys and gals in aprons continue to update and deliver fresh, seasonal fare using high quality ingredients in comfort foods like Chicken Fried Steak and BBQ Pork Ribs along with more contemporary dishes including the Hummus Platter, Ocean Salmon, and half pound Buffalo Burger.

For breakfast you will find everything from the basic bacon and egg plater to the fancier Villa Frittata and the Jack Rabbit Scrambler. Our irresistible Caramel Rolls, the Black Hills Original since 1965, are available everyday—until they sell out.

Bread is not an afterthought of baskets filled with doughy white uninspired dinner rolls. Instead, our crew of bakers create hand crafted bread to be served along with our delicious entrees. The bread selections vary from a classic sourdough made from Anna Maria--our sour dough starter still looking hot to trot at 35-- all the way to our more unique combinations like rosemary and sea-salt, and Asiago Cheese with roasted onion and peppers.

For those who love pastries and cake, take home a slice of Oregon Berry Pie, a pound of Peanut Butter Crunch Bar or a serving of Apple Crostata with an exquisitely flakey crust all made from scratch every morning. Cookie lovers can get their fix with the classic chocolate chip and frosted sugar cookies or opt for one of the more whimsical selections like salted Oatmeal #9, Mudslide, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. And the pie, there is so much pie!

Grab a signature drink with friends, munch on delectable walleye strips, hang out and watch the wild world of sports, or quaff local beer until you’re brave enough to canon ball into Rapid Creek.

At the Colonial House Restaurant and Bar, we Cook with Fire then pass that spirit on to our guests. Whether you're a visitor to the Black Hills, or a long-time guest, we hope you joy the CHouse experience.
