Professional lunch near K. of P. recommendations

Chefpaulo Aug 8, 2013 02:00 PM

I'm putting together a lunch meeting for a few colleagues about two weeks from now. K. of P. is the center point for all but Creed's is a bit pricy. Anything else near the 202/422/Tpk intersection offering a quiet space and relaxed atmosphere to plan our programs for the next year?

    Are you looking for independent or chain? At the Mall you have Seasons 52, and Legal Seafood which both are cheaper than Creeds.

      Ralph's of South Philly @ the Sheraton was pretty good the couple of times I've been there.

        Here's a second vote for Ralph's. It seems right for your needs.

          -1 for Ralph's; admittedly it has been over a month since the last time there, and I mean LAST TIME. Perhaps there has been significant improvement.

            Oops! That does it for me. Trusting your experience, I just canceled my reservation.
            What specifically was the problem?

              So many problems: poor service, bland uninteresting food and a bit too much attitude. For those who like the "real" Ralph's perhaps this location is ok. I have never been a fan of Ralph's. But then who am I to argue with "Old blue eyes". As noted this was over a month ago, so perhaps all has improved. In keeping with casino lingo I consider this Ralph's is a poor bet. But then I know of people who have hit an inside straight.

                Thanks. I appreciate your candor.

          Is Sullivan's out of the mix? I think their lunch salads are very nice and reasonably priced.

            It's not King of Prussia but not far off in Berwyn is Nectar.
            Perfect for your needs.

              Chadwicks in Audubon. Mushroom soup is very good. Booths are comfortable with high backs, outdoor dining overlooking golf course if you like.
