St. Louis / St. Charles MO German

My girlfriend and I are making a quick trip to Saint Louis and then spending the night in Saint Charles. I'm looking for a good, more authentic, German restaurant. I have found the Gast Haus which would be near the arch, zoo, and botanical garden. The other good option is Vintage House in St. Charles.
Has anyone been to either or both of these? Any other ideas?

  1. The Gast Haus is a marvel of restoration. If the owner is there, she can show you photos of what the place looked like before it was restored. Food is fine, not exceptional, with high points to the potato pancake.

    The Vintage House has an outdoor garden, where you can eat in warm weather. Again, food is fine, not exceptional. They carry Rumanian wine.
