Yes, the burger! We like to sit in the bar area when dining. The restaurant can be loud when crowded.

Don't bother with the other items on the menu..... Get the burger..... Consistently great! Enough said..... Smallish dining area - you may need to wait for a table. It's worth the wait.

Solid destination with good food and lots of history. Awarded best burger in area several times. Only item that could make this better would be the addition of an outdoor deck.

This is the most beloved restaurant in Clarendon Hills. Their burgers are top notch, and their soups are all homemade. Check out the daily special on the blackboard when you enter. The service is slow, but the servers are very respectful and good at what they do. Just expect to wait a little longer than usual for your food. Sit... More

I've been enjoying Country House for 40+ years. The burgers (beef, elk, ostrich, buffalo) are done with constancy and quality product. I love the CH red ale and the wine list is moderately priced and good. The service is top notch. It's noisy but you can still hold a conversation. The burgers used to come with a side and small...

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

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.

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.

Description
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".
