Description: Casual dining in a rustic atmosphere has made The County House Restaurants a west suburban favorite for more than 15 years. It is located on the Illinois Prairie Path across the street from Elfstrom Stadium (Home of The Kane County Cougars) and The Fox Valley Ice Arena. It 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-broiled steaks, fresh salads, pastas, and daily specials - all in a friendly neighborhood setting. There is a cozy full service bar where you can enjoy your favorite beer, a martini, or a glass of wine by the fireplace. You could also dine outside on our spacious cedar deck overlooking a beautifully landscaped pond. We are open 7 days a week for lunch, dinner, or a late night meal.

“Good, solid comfort food”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

We stopped on a snowy evening for a meal and were seated immediately by the friendly hostess. We didn't wait very long for our waitress, although she felt we had waited to long and apologized for the delay. She took our drink order, which was trying a local Chicago ale and a Country House red ale. When she returned she explained the specials to us, and shortly after took our order. We chose the meatloaf special and the pretzel crusted pike. Both arrived in a reasonable amount of time and were delicious. The side choices are plentiful. Usually an up charge at other restaurants, the onion rings are a regular side choice here, so I had those and they were crispy and flavorful. Both of our meals were delicious, especially the pike.The beers were also very good, and the beer menu is extensive if you want to try others after your first. I have been here about 10 times for lunch, and this one time for dinner, and can heartily recommend it. Our waitress made the dinner delightful as she was upbeat and funny. Whenever we're in the area, we'll definitely stop here.

“A fun lunch in Geneva”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

This restaurant is a lot of fun. We sat by the fireplace... . wonderful atmosphere. The food was delicious with large portions. I ordered a salmon sandwich and it was great! They have a big selection of hamburgers with different types of meat. The prices are very good for the value. The staff is friendly. It's also fun to throw peanut shells on the floor.

“A solid place to go to”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Been there quite a few times over the years, and while I'm not the biggest fan of the type of food they serve, it works on occasion. The bar is good, German-style beer on tap is never out of fashion. Enjoyed every visit.

“Better than average bar food”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We frequent Country House on a monthly basis. The peanuts and popcorn in the bar are better than most. We eat in the bar and enjoy the fine beer and ale The burgers are fantastic, but give a try yo the German sausage plate. It is served with sour kraut and a potato. Staff people are friendly and helpfull.

“Good Food”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I have eaten at the Country House in Geneva, Ilinois several times. The food tends to be very good, and their burgers are the best in the area. The only problem I have had is that occasionally their fries tend to be under cooked and have to be sent back.
