This place is a local treasure, It's often a little noisy and crowded but that's because the food is awesome. Service is good too

We've been eating here since it first opened and it continues to be one of our favorite places - some of the waitresses have been here for many years, making me think that they treat their employees well. The Rueben sandwich is a classic and done well with side options that include fries, cole slaw, or fruit among others. The... More

This place has been around since I was a kid. I always loved coming here. Burgers are delicious every time. Great French Onion Soup. Two thumbs up.

Hearty meals in a cozy (maybe tight) no nonsense setting. Absolutely great burgers. The Elk and Buffalo are fun to try but nothing beats their beef burgers. I often get the German Wurst Platter with classic German meats...all hot 'n steamy. You don't see a lot of young families there...mostly an older crowd but...those young uns are missing out on...

I hate going to a restaurant, when I'm out of town, and sitting at a table by myself so I sat in the bar area and immediately felt welcome by the regulars and two very warm and welcoming bartenders. I ordered the pretzel battered walleye that was delicious and a huge portion ($14). It arrived quickly with a potato and... More

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...

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".
