Why the Strange hours you ask??

Why the Strange hours you ask??

Hello, I’m Mr. Litehouse and we have weird hours!     Here’s why…

As a Christian and one that is health and community conscious, we decided that as a restaurant chain, we need to do something different, something daring, something challenging to our eaters; CLOSE ON THE LORD’S SABBATH DAY.


Scientifically, from Sundown Friday Evening to Sundown Saturday is the best time for the body to completely rest and recharge, and consequently God felt the same way when He created the world we live in.  He also made it a point to put a day of rest as the 4thcommandment in the famous 10 Commandments that include don’t lie, steal nor murder other individuals.  Dozens of times in the new and old testaments we see God’s best followers observing The Lord’s Sabbath and Holy Day’s such as The Day of Atonement and Passover all in remembrance and honor to Christ.  Each of those days we will shut our doors for the benefit of our employees, our community and ourselves.




We decided to take that time to Lite up our community!  When our doors are closed different not for profits or organizations that benefit our community can use our space, FOR FREE!  We encourage bible studies, poetry or talent show nights, photography training, dancing etc…ALL FREE TO OUR COMMUNITY.  God’s Sabbath was always about coming together as a family.  As a community we’re a family and somehow that concept has gotten lost over the years, however, Litehouse Whole Food Grill is determined to bring it back!


So, each Friday Night when the sun goes down, we will no longer serve food to the public.  Saturday when the sun goes down, we will open back up and our doors will open up all the way until 3am.  Hope you understand and respect our goal to Lite the Communities we reside in.

    This is amazing. I absolutely love the observance of the Sabbath Day. I can definitely appreciate it being a Sabbath Keeper myself. This is such a creative way to spread the gospel to those that may not know it. I can’t wait to come and meet the staff.

    This is going to be a success because it is open for the right intentions.

    To God be the Glory,

    Litehouse has quickly become one of my favorite places to eat. I have lived in Hyde Park for roughly 15 years and I am so happy to FINALLY have a place that offers true healthy food options.

    I wish you were on the northwest side of Chicago. I live 4300 North and 4200 West. We need a healthier way of eating here too.

    The food is REALLY good and the folks running the place are some of the nicest and friendliest people to talk to! Love the food, the space and the mission, a very welcome addition to Hyde Park!

    I enjoyed the experience and the food at your establishment. I hope you can inspire other business owners not to be afraid in honoring the sabbath. I will definitely be a returning customer…
