Just One Question: When Will It Close Down?
We have been going to this restaurant since it opened in 2003/2004. It was so nice to have a "proper" restaurant open in Burlington. A place where they had the budget to buy proper kitchen equipment, proper dining tables and chairs, proper flatware and stemware. Upon enetering, you'd smell the pleasant sweetness of mesquite charcoal and your mouth would water at the display of fresh fish and game meat on display. This was the place! 7 years later, nothing has changed. Including the menu (Tasmanian Ocean Trout has been a nightly special for 2,372 nights running) and the insufferable service headed up by the "Franz" the aloof manager. About 6 months ago after a particularily agonizing exchange with Franz, we finally realized that the cons of this restaurant have outweighed any pros and have decided never to return. From driving by on various weekend nights, the parking lot appears empty. Has the rest of Burlington come to the same conclusion we have? I look forward to the day that the Carriage House closes their doors and someone who cares about providing all facets of a good restaurant decides to take up occupancy in this perfect location.
