We were so looking forward to an authentic German experience in Burlington. First when we arrived, it felt like we had just stopped by a sports bar with a few german signs on the wall, football on the big screen TV's and Raggie music playing. Outside of the waitresses in correct outfits, it didn't impress me to be an authentic German restaurant and I have been to many in the states, Canada and Europe.
The Weihanstepan Vitus beer was good, but the Saurbraten and the red cabbage was less than on par with comparable restaurants. The spaetzel was ok, and the 5 wursts platter with the curry sauce was good (although my wife got ill about a half hour after we left ..hopefully not connected.).
Also several times during our meal there was the sound of a gym or prison door being opened and slammed downstairs...Obviously this was the escape door to the alleyway for people trying to get out....Very annoying.
Overall, if I had wanted to go to a sports bar , and watch football or go and listen to reggie (then later Neil Young) with mediocre food, I would have looked for another establishment. But we wanted to go to a German Restraurant with good German atmosphere and Good German food.....We left very Disappointed !!!!! I will give it another chance as I always believe a place can have a bad night, but this was really upsetting.
