Folsom recommendations needed

Next month a group of six friends and myself will be attending a concert at Folsom Community College and we want to go to dinner afterward. It is a Sunday afternoon concert. Price range: affordable-moderate. No Indian or Thai. Most people in the group enjoy different cuisines, only one is a picky eater. IIRC, no one is into very spicy foods. The noise level can't be too noisy, we'd like to hold a conversation comfortably. Something within a short driving distance is preferred. Also, any thoughts on the German restaurant in Old Folsom? Sorry, I can't be more specific, it has been a long time since I have dined with these friends and their tastes and dietary preferences may have changed. Thanks

  1. On Sutter Street try Sam Hornes Tavern. excellent moderately priced food. 20 rotating taps of craft beers.

    or Bidwell Street Bistro which is amazing. Pricier, but a great dining experience.

    Then there is Sutter Street Steakhouse which is high end steaks like Ruth's Chris (Not quite that expensive though)
    And the older people love Old World, I haven't been but people, always older, rave on it.

    I don't ever go past Natoma Street so I don't know what all is up by the college outside of chains (Mimi's Olive garden, Black Angus). I know FATS is incredble. Spendy but worth it IMO...
