We live in Blue Bell and have family attending a conference near the Phila Airport. We'd like to take them somewhere nice but not super fancy for dinner. Anyone know any good spots down that way?

Thanks!

I know the area well and can't think of anyplace other than the big hotels and they can be dreary. We love the Penrose Diner which is a big, busy neighborhood landmark(on the order of "the Country Club diner" if you have ever heard of that). The food is good and it has a fun, South Philly atmoshere. (It will remind you of the Sopranos)
Leaving the airport going north follow the signs for I-76 west but once over the Platt bridge don't turn left on 26th St stay straight on Penrose Av. There is a circular highrise hotel on the left and the diner is on the right.
