Moderately Priced, Group of Twelve

I am looking for something moderately priced ($15-$20 entrees) for a group of 12 people who would feel right at home at Margaritaville. I'm afraid if I don't find something, we'll end up at Margaritaville (not slamming the restaurant, I have one where I live in Myrtle Beach).

This would be for Saturday night May 28th. It is a combined birthday dinner.

    Napoleon House is fun. You can dine in their courtyard.

      Thank you so much! This one was already on my list but I thought it was more of a bar?

        Okay, Napoleon House doesn't serve food after 5PM on Fridays and Saturdays?

        The Praline Connection on Frenchman St comes to mind for Creole Soul food. Non-threatening menu for those who might rather be at Margaritaville and strolling Frenchman is always nice.

          This is a difficult query. Maybe El Gato Negro, or Maximos which slightly outside your price point.

            El Gato Negro is a good idea. If the weather cooperates, they have a nice patio out back that would be the perfect size for a twelve person birthday dinner.

            Thanks everyone. I received some bad advice on the Napoleon House and they do serve dinner Friday and Saturday.
