Quiet relaxed atmosphere for a group of 28

I've been searching for a place in the DFW area (somewhere in a 20 minute driving radius from the Grapevine area would be great!) that has private(or even semi private) seating for a large group (around 28-30 people) that isn't going to cost us an arm and a leg. Everywhere I see that can accommodate a group that large is either really pricey, or is a really loud busy place. I'd like to be somewhere that doesn't have a menu that is limited to one taste (ie: all mexican food, all italian food, etc) and that my guests and I can hear each other talking.

Anyone have any ideas? Thank you so much!

    Casa-Milagro is an excellent Mexican restaurant on Campbell at Plano Road. Great food, decor, and service!
    They do have a very nice semi-private dining room suitable for 28-30 people.

    I just re-read your request for not wanting an all Mexican menu.
    Sorry, I wasn't able to delete my reply

      No, that's okay. Thank you for the reply! That place looks great! (maybe I shouldn't limit my search that way just in case) I actually need something a tiny bit closer to the Grapevine area if possible. :)

        Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I am somewhat in the dark when it comes to the Grapevine area.
        Although, I know there are some nice restaurants in the downtown area. Hopefully, there's one that will suit your needs.

      All though it does have a bit of a chainish feel http://www.theranchlc.com/ is easy going quiet and I believe they have a private room. The food is pretty classic southern with a twist.

        That looks like it might be a contender. As long as it's not "chili's chainish" I'm okay. :) Thanks for the suggestion!

          Nope it's a bit more upscale with locally sourced ingredients. There food a whee bit spicy overall, but quite interesting. I had the smoked fried chicken on the last visit. The fingerling potato salad was the big winner. The chicken was quite good, but my brain had a hard time processing smoked oh wait fried....
