I had the exact same problem!  i ended up going with the Loews Hotel and I think we negotiated the price a bit to get it just within our budget.  They allow us to bring in our own Kosher Caterer — as do most places.  Some places you might want to check out are the Marriott Downtown and the new Museum of American Jewish History.  THe museum opens in November and they have 3 kosher caterers to choose from.  If you are willing to consider outside of Philly, the Westin in Mt. Laurel, NJ does their own Kosher catering and they are $115/person and it’s really a beautiful hotel – practically brand new.  Another location we liked was the Mansion in Voorhees.  They also can do their own kosher catering or allow you to bring in your own caterer.  They shake out to about $115/person also.

Hope this helps!!! What kosher caterer are you going with? We still haven’t decided but I think we’re going to look at Betty the Caterer.

Also, the Ben Franklin House allows Kosher Caterers — but only for a Sunday wedding…

@Lana726: The Foundry is amazing.  I held a gala event there in April (thank god we were non-profit!).  It is very pricey. 

We’re getting married with reception at same venue at Robert Ryan’s Columbia Station, also in Phoenixville.  I’m not sure about the Kosher Menu, you’ll have to call and ask, but they are extremely easy to work with!

I would recommend the Rittenhouse Hotel (where I was just married, yaay!). I think the per person cost is more than your budget, but there are no rental fees and they take care of everything. Also if you aren’t picky about linens, tables, plates, silverware they provide all this for free. We didn’t have kosher catering, but I know they provide this.

Did you check out Radnor Hunt in Malvern? They use J Scott Catering but they do offer kosher catering.  Their price is flexible too I believe based  on what you choose.

Radnor Hunt isn’t big enough. You could also check out the Old Mill in Rose Valley!

Spring Mill Country Club and the Drexelbrook both have in-house kosher catering. I know you don’t want a hotel but the Hilton on city ave also has in-house and the Hyatt at Penn’s landing is really stunning and not too expensive in the up-charges for bringing in the kosher caterer. I am using prestige and my venue is jacking up all the fees cause we are bringing them in.

I second what DVsMom said re: The Drexelbrook. I got married there, and they do have kosher catering. http://www.drexelbrookcatering.com. They have multiple different rooms and they can definitely accomodate your group.
