Nachos are ok. The reason for the recommendation is that happy hour is the best. $3 Well drinks and a heavy pour makes it the place to go to watch a game on one of the many large flat screens and have a couple of cocktails for just a few dollars.

Great burgers and a view. They have a deck with a view and check out their web page for the schedule. Wednesday night is Irish night and that can be quite alarming if you aren't aware of that sort of thing. I about jumped out of my skin when all of a sudden the entire restaurant and bar started singing with the band and clapping loudly out of the blue! It's great music and a lot of fun, but you've got to be prepared for that sort of thing. Kayak rentals are available at the marina here.
