Description: Casual dining in a rustic atmosphere has made The Country House Restaurants a west suburban favorite for more than 25 years. The Lisle Country House is located in College Square Mall in the heart of Green Trails. 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 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 Lisle's "pleasant surprise in casual dining".

“Best burgers!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We live very close to the Lisle location, but I like the way they have the stairs in the bar going nowhere just like in the old house of the original location. Have been going there since it was built and it is always consistent.
We usually get the burgers, but also like the Reuben's, spinach salad and of course the oysters on Tuesday nights.
They also have take out - except for the oysters.

“They fill their niche well”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

The food is average to good. But they are always full! Solid good midwestern family restaurant. I always wish they would have a couple of surpisingly more tasty items on the menu. Other members of my family find this place perfectly okay.

My family and I had the thrill of a very reasonable Lobster dinner recently. The food was delilsh; the room cozy and busy and unfortunately they only have this special at certain times. Call first.Their juicy hamburgers are outstanding.

“Great food and service every time”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Country House is not a fancy high end restaurant, but the food and service are always very good. I usually order the burger with grilled onions. It nevery dissapoints. My wife enjoys the buffalo burger because of the lower fat/cal content. Good assortment of beer also. The onion rings are great. The place looks like something out of the 1970's but that is fine wiht me since the food is good.
