Philadelphia group dinner restaurant recommendation?

I'm traveling with a group of museum staff to Phila for some professional development, and I'm supposed to find us a place to eat on Saturday night. We will be staying in Center City near-ish to Independence Hall, but are happy to walk anywhere south of Market down to South, or a few blocks beyond for something really good.
Here are the constraints: we'll have a dozen people, ages 30-50. Fun and atmosphere are a high priority, and we want somewhere that serves alcohol or allows BYO, but meat market-type bars are not so welcome.
We don't have too many adventurous eaters, so a place that offers burgers/sandwiches would be great, though it doesn't have to specialize in pub grub. Great pizza could be another option. Some people have expressed interest in finding steaks, but I feel like that places that offer steaks tend to be all steak (or steak and crappy pizza) and don't offer options for people who want something more...non-steak-y.
Price is not that huge an issue but if it could be under $20 average entree price that would suit us all.
I used to live in the city but really don't know what the food scene is like there now, so I come to you for wise recommendations.
