My husband and 10 year old son needed dinner after his baseball game. Country House was close and had good reviews. My son had chicken tenders and a house salad with Ranch dressing-very yummy. My husband had the BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with homemade potato salad-also very yummy. The service was great and it was very reasonably priced. The steak... More

Our server has been there the longest and was fantastic. The food was great and the location was, as well. Known for a great burger and other great food. I will go back. Nice atmosphere to have a business conversation. You must go.

You will love the hearty food and the rustic atmosphere. We have taken many visitors (domestic and international) and they all ask to come back, when they visit. I didn't rate it perfect, because they don't take reservations and the wait can be pretty long...which I hate...when I am hungry, I want to eat!

They really do have some of the best burgers around. In addition, their Elk and Bison burgers are delicious!! The two petite filets are also so good, with your choice of bernaise or bordelais. Nice wine selections (lots of beer too, but I don't drink beer). Karen is an outstanding wait person.

I've been to this quaint little place too many times to count over the years. I can actually walk there from my house. That's not the reason I would go, however, we go for the good food and the atmosphere. A couple of weeks ago, my oldest son (13) and I went as a special treat, and so we could... More

This place is a local treasure, It's often a little noisy and crowded but that's because the food is awesome. Service is good too

We've been eating here since it first opened and it continues to be one of our favorite places - some of the waitresses have been here for many years, making me think that they treat their employees well. The Rueben sandwich is a classic and done well with side options that include fries, cole slaw, or fruit among others. The... More

Hearty meals in a cozy (maybe tight) no nonsense setting. Absolutely great burgers. The Elk and Buffalo are fun to try but nothing beats their beef burgers. I often get the German Wurst Platter with classic German meats...all hot 'n steamy. You don't see a lot of young families there...mostly an older crowd but...those young uns are missing out on...

Casual dining in a rustic atmosphere has made The Country House Restaurants a west suburban favorite for more than 35 years. The Clarendon Hills Country House is a great spot for a quick business lunch, a relaxed dinner, or just to have a cocktail with your neighbor. We are best known for our highly touted "Country Burger" a hearty half pound served on dark rye. It was recently voted "Chicago's Favorite Burger" by the readers of The Chicago Tribune.
In addition our menu also features hickory smoked ribs, char-broiledsteaks, fresh salads, pastas, and daily specials - all in a friendly neighborhood setting. There is also a full service bar where you can enjoy your favorite beer, a martini, or a glass of wine by the fireplace. We are open 7 days a week for lunch, dinner, or a late night meal. Please stop in and enjoy Clarendon Hills "pleasant surprise in casual dining".
