Description: Casual dining in a rustic atmosphere has made The Country House Restaurants...
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".

Great spot

Good food for lunch or dinner. Great burgers, especially the buffalo burger. Fish and chips are exceptional as well. Reasonable process and a comfortable bar area.

The one half pound country burger with sides at $9.99 is by itself worth the trip. Coupled with the pretzel bun, and the included side of outstanding potato salad will have us coming back. The seating is tight in that it is not a large venue and most tables were full for lunch even at 2 PM. Our server, a... More

I live near this place and go at least once a week. The food is good and the staff is friendly. Watch out though, if you have peanut allergies there are peanut shells everywhere.

This place is always crowded but the burgers are worth it. I also like the steak fries. It has not changed much over the years so you know what to expect.

Used to come here all of the time with family and friends. Went here last Sunday for burgers with friends and I was disappointed. Atmosphere cozy and comfortable.

Just plain old good food. This is the way a Cheeseburger or Rueben should be served. Fat, juicy and lots of flavor! Love thick fries? Then this is the place to go!
