First time here on a Sunday afternoon. Nice bar with lots of space. We had calamari, it was good. Fish and chips were delicious. Loved the shoestring fries. Really nice beer selection, fast service. Also had the corned beef. It was good but wished I got the fish and chips like my husband. Nice menu with several good choices. Many... More

Went on a Sunday early afternoon. Three tables were full just after noon. Beer menu on tap was welcome. So was the main menu, lots to choose from. Ordered a 4 flight for $8 to try a few beers. Lunch was good and sandwiches were worth the price. Will stop in again when back that way.

Excellent service and food, especially the chicken wings! We were able to enjoy their outdoor patio with a fire pit and heaters....in November!!

Nice place with friendly service. The smoked wings were tasty and meaty. They have a good beer selection. The Matilda was refreshing.

I've dined at Countyline on many occasions for both lunch and dinner. The menu has great variety, with The Best Damn Grilled Cheese Ever being my lunch favorite. Not a single person in my ten plus visits has ever been disappointed with their food, which says a lot. And the beer selection is excellent, offering something for everyone. Definitely a... More

Enjoyed relaxing evening in nice environment. Salmon was great and spicy beans a good side. Caesar salad was excellent with light fresh dressing. Good service. Diverse menu.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this new restaurant while at my stay at the Wynham Garden Hotel. I first enjoyed the bar area with friends and we ordered calamari and a hummus plate. Both were great! Our bartender was very nice and friendly. Great service! A couple of days later, we went to the restaurant for lunch! WOW! I... More

A very good restaurant. Service was friendly, patio was very nice with the fire going on a chilly night. Craft beer selections were very good with options not on the usual menu.

Lake Cook Road about 11 months ago and was excited to see Countyline Tavern coming in where Winberie's was. I went into try this new place and found a... More
