I don't know how their lunches or dinners are, but avoid their dinner like the plague. I just posted a review on Yelp, but wanted to come here to warn away fellow Chowhounders that they are not remotely what they claim. So, my yelp review:

My first clue should have been the large, loud bar crowd and multiple tv's showing sports side by side with tables topped with white butcher paper. Not exactly high class, but I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Being extremely hungry, we ordered their thai peanut chicken skewers as an appetizer. The chicken was cooked fine, but the "thai peanut sauce" was closer to wing sauce mixed with peanut butter than a proper thai sauce.
For dinner, my date ordered the salmon salad and I ordered the short ribs with mashed potatoes and port wine sauce. Her salmon was overcooked, and the dressing on the salad was... the same peanut wing sauce from our appetizer. The salad itself was almost entirely cabbage and iceburg lettuce. My short ribs... weren't even short ribs at all. It was a tough, overdone flank steak dressed in a BARBECUE sauce. The only thing they had right was the mashed potatoes. I ate maybe a quarter of my dish before giving up.
This isn't a nice restaurant. Heck, the food is better at just about every sports bar I've been to, for a whole lot less money.
They might do a decent pizza and burger for lunch, but don't even think of coming here for a nice dinner.
