We're headed to the movies across from the Cherry Hill mall tonight..not very familiar with the area and looking for someplace to take a group of 2 adults and 5 teens for moderately priced dinner. Any help appreciated!

    That is the land of the chain. You literally can look out the door of the movie theater and find a dozen restaurants right on the street. The Cherry Hill Cheesecake Factory is big time. They have like 3 hour waits and people actually wait. A good Chow-worthy restaurant is rare over there, but hopefully someone who knows better will chime in with a rec. I would have said Onasis, but they closed. Located across the street from the Cheesecake Beast.

      I know very few restaurants in Cherry Hill but I went to a party at Norma's Mediterranean once and the food was really good. Not sure how close to the mall it is, but it is in Cherry Hill.

        Try searching the mid-atlantic board which covers NJ: http://chowhound.chow.com/boards/16

        Collingswood isn't too far away, you could search for recs there too.

          For a group of teens I would recommend Seasons 52. I enjoyed my lunch and it was very reasonably priced. They promote seasonal ingredients and apparently change their menu seasonally. I know it's a chain, but it has a very different feel than the typical cheese cake, fridays, or chilli's.

            Bahama Breeze is perfect. It's in the mall.

                I know it's too late for your original request, but perhaps for next time: just north of the mall (technically in Pennsauken) is the Tortilla Press Cantina. This is the spin-off from the owner of the Tortilla Press in Collingswood, which has amazing Tex-Mex food. TPC was opened about a year or two ago, then closed temporarily (construction nearby was limiting access), but has reopened. We were very happy with several meals there, especially the chipotle-peanut pork BBQ and the chicken-sweet potato burrito. I'd much rather eat here than any of the chains at the mall...
