If you are coming on a weekday, I recommend the Marathon Grill on the corner of 19th and Market Streets. Great sandwiches, salads, burgers, fries. It is closed Saturday and Sunday. http://www.marathongrill.com/index2.html

If you are coming on the weekend then I would point you to The Public House in the Two Logan Square building at 18th and Cherry for pub type food in a sports bar atmosphere.

You could also eat at the museum cafe or at TGI Fridays which is located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway between 17th and 18th Streets. Fridays is obviously a well known chain it tends to be an OK place to eat with children but not a great place for fine dining.
