Our server has been there the longest and was fantastic. The food was great and the location was, as well. Known for a great burger and other great food. I will go back. Nice atmosphere to have a business conversation. You must go.

You will love the hearty food and the rustic atmosphere. We have taken many visitors (domestic and international) and they all ask to come back, when they visit. I didn't rate it perfect, because they don't take reservations and the wait can be pretty long...which...More

They really do have some of the best burgers around. In addition, their Elk and Bison burgers are delicious!! The two petite filets are also so good, with your choice of bernaise or bordelais. Nice wine selections (lots of beer too, but I don't drink...More

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".
