If you're looking for a low-brow apres-ski pub, this might be your place. Above the Notch has a huge bar and a small dining room, and the waitstaff are focused on the bar; that must be where the money is.
We stopped here for an early dinner on a Friday night. The place was nearly empty, but still we waited for 5-10 minutes for someone to seat us, despite the fact that several servers passes us by several times and none of them were on their way to wait on other diners/drinkers. When we finally were seated, we lucked out and got the only server who was actually paying attention to her tables. I wish I could remember her name--she was great. Anyway, she served us burger and fries, and they were just fine. Nothing special.
The real "stars" of the show that night were the two men waiting on the party of 6 nearby. This group looked to be ordering everything--bar drinks, appetizers, meals and desserts, and the servers couldn't keep any of it straight. The group would order another round of beers, and the beers came out one at a time, 5-10 minutes apart, as if the servers couldn't remember how many were ordered. It was like that for every part of their meal.
Again, I think this might be a decent bar, or even a place for dinner if you have plenty of time. If you're looking for quick, go elsewhere.
