Family trip to Philadelphia - two dinners Easter Weekend

Hi Everyone - Just to follow up - we had a wonderful time in Phili - what a great city to visit! We will definitely be back. We ended up eating at The Oyster House on Saturday night and all thought it was excellent. I had the burrata appetizer special - fresh with trout caviar on top and toasts with chive oil. It was fantastic. It wasn't too dark but had ambiance. It wasn't too loud but wasn't a library. They gave us a square table which is nice with 8 people.
Unfortunately we really messed up with Friday night - ended up at The Corner, which was totally wrong for us - loud, slow service... but the brussel sprouts were yummy :)
Thanks for the advice!

Hi Bacchus - looked at the menu at The Oyster House and it looks great. We are from north of Boston and have great seafood here - my sister's family lives in California and would really enjoy the lobster, clams, oysters, etc. Interesting craft beer list too for the guys. And the location is great!
Will get back to all of you and let you know what we decided to do. Thanks again!

Hi Mike - love all of these places! Amada especially sounds like a fun family style option. Planning on doing a food tour in the RTM on Saturday. Thanks!

Family trip to Philadelphia - two dinners Easter Weekend

We are travelling to Philadelphia Fri-Sun Easter weekend. 4 adults, 3 kids 10, 13, 15, and one elderly person. I'm looking for suggestions for dinner in the city (we are staying near the Convention Center but can taxi) that won't be outrageously loud (grandma), or crazy expensive and will have good wine & beer (preferable both).. a great pizza place, ethnic food is okay, a nice bistro? The kids are adventurous eaters. I like the idea of the tasting menus for those that want them. I've read through the site and have seen many great places and ideas, but wanted opinions for the varied group we have here - also It would be good to have one night where there are some options under $20/entree - then maybe another night under $30. We will have to save the really fine dining for another trip with just the two of us! Any ideas? Thanks!
