PHL Airport Restaurants

I am meeting someone from Philadelphia at the airport while I have a layover. Are there restaurants that are not within security if we leave the secured area? Thanks.

Yes. I've eaten at the airport, outside of the security area, a couple of times when I've dropped off a friend for a flight.

I'm not sure where you can eat at the airport, outside of the secured area as I do not recall any restaurants or anything really other than the ticket counters. With that said, there's a Marriott by the baggage claim area, and a Ruby Tuesday on Isla Ave, by the hotels.

I saw the Marriott on line. Looks close, is it walking distance? I have a three hour layover. Time enough for lunch and to get back to the gate?

The Marriott is IN the airport, attached near terminal B. You don't even have to step outside.

The Marriott is really the only realistic choice. Unless there have been some changes there are no food options other than snacks pre/post security.

With such a short layover, (provided that everything runs on time) I would only consider the Marriott. You really won't have time to go anywhere else.

The Marriott is, in fact within walking distance as it is attached to the airport. It's located between terminals B and C. To get to it, go outside of the secured area, towards the baggage claim area. You will see the sign to the hotel.

Question about eating inside security: I have never had a cheeseteak and I see that there is a Chickie and Pete's in my terminal. (I only have about an hour so no time to leave the airport). Is that a decent version or would I be better off not wasting my maiden cheesesteak journey on it?

C+Ps does a perfectly acceptable cheese steak, tho the ones at the restaurant are a little better.

That said, get the Roast Pork and Crab Fries if you go there, its just a good sandwich.

Excellent - thank you! I have a layover on the way back from Houston as well so I'll have the chance to try both
