This is a true landmark. Best burgers in Illinois along with a well-rounded menu and good bar. Really, be it with friends, family or a date, this is a good choice...wait times in the evening can drag a little, but have a drink and relax for this is your house in the country!

The legendary Country House is famous for being "haunted" and is a very popular local tavern and restaurant in town. Friendly service, televisions in the bar playing sports' games, and free peanuts that you eat and throw the shells on the floor! The restaurant area has a dimly lit ambience, small tables in a cozy layout and the same friendly... More

Went for dinner last Saturday. The place was packed. Probably because of all the St. Pat's specials. Didn't wait long for a table. Great service by Ellen. Best hot pastrami sandwich I've had in my life! We'll definitely go again!

I've been eating at the Country House for over 15 years. I met a customer of mine there on Friday for a laid-back business lunch (bar food, beer and some shop talk). I have never had the chili at the Country House, and I am very happy that I chose to go that route on this visit. I like a... More

We love Country House! Have been going for many more years then I would like to admit! That said the food is always good, the bartenders always great - service changes depending who waits on you - but all in all a neighborhood treasure!

Always have a wonderful time at the Country house and it feels like home. Free peanuts you can throw on the floor, great drink selection, comfortable atmosphere, and Stanley the bartender is incredible! I'd highly recommend the Country House for a casual night out.

We love this salad when we're up for a dinner on the lighter side. Chicken is grilled to perfection.

This restaurant has so much charm - rustic and cozy! Legend has it that the restaurant is haunted which adds mystique to the experience. The food is wonderful and the servers excellent. Plan to wait 30 minutes or so - this place is always busy. It's well worth the wait!!!! Try to save room for the desserts - they're wonderful!
