Friday night dinner - Center City w/kids

This is a bit of a tricky thing. I need a backup plan in case my Friday dinner plans fall through while my wife and I visit Philadelphia with our two boys under 7. If it was just my wife and I, we would love to eat at one of the many great gastropubs Philly has to offer. In fact we are going to Standard Tap with the kids on Thursday. However, Friday night, with kids, that may not be the best option (maybe if we go early?). I was thinking of one of the south Philly Italian places like Marra's, but that is a long way from our hotel near Locust and Broad with potentially cranky kids. What would be a good choice in Center City with moderate prices (under $20 entrees) in a non Chuck E Cheese atmosphere? I mean, on our big trip to Philly we don't to eat in a generic food court or at a run of the mill place we could eat at anywhere, but at the same time we want to eat somewhere where smaller kids wouldn't be out of place. Food cuisine doesn't matter too much as long as we can some little thing on the menu the guys can eat. Any thoughts?
