Suggestions for group of 25 near Ambler, PA

I am looking for a moderately priced restaurant in Montgomery County (Ambler, Blue Bell, Jenkintown, Skippack, or thereabouts) that would have space for a sit-down party of about 25 people. A BYO would be fantastic, but I'm not going to get my hopes up.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

  1. From the Boot in Ambler. I cannot recommend it any more highly, we had our daughters christening there and it was fabulous. They have a room downstairs for private parties. Great food, if you do a banquet menu prices are only around $20/pp depending on what you get. Waiting for liquor licewnse so they are currently BYO.

      Thanks. Is this the space that used to be the lower-scale Mexican place (not Cava)? What is the food like? I can make a trip there for a taste test, but it's about 45 minutes away and I want to do due diligence first.

        Yes it is at the former location of Agave, next to the theater. They did a nice job of reabbing the building. Food is good, traditional italian, very moderate prices. My favorite is their meatballs and their eggplant rollatini. Be prepared for a wait on weekends. It is BYO until they get their liquor license.

    2. Mirna's in Blue Bell is also a really nice place for a party. I have been there a few times for a private party and thought they did a nice job. Also check out Marco Polo in Jenkintown (have been there for a bridal shower)

        Thanks, I will also check out Mirna's. I read (possibly here?) that the Jenkintown location is nicer than the Blue Bell location. Do you know anything about that?
