My mother and I ate there recently and had their wonderful mini-burgers. The onion rings and sides were excellent too. I didn't give it 5 stars because the tables and chairs are very old and should be updated. Otherwise, I heartily recommend.

My friends & I celebrated my friend's 70th birthday here yesterday. We shared the caramelized onion & jalapeno hummus dip with veggies & pita chips which was outstanding. I ordered the pecan crusted tilapia tacos with macaroni & cheese on the side which was equally fabulous! Two of my friends ordered the chicken salad on croissants with sweet potato fries... More

I love to drive through beautiful old neighborhoods when visiting a new city. After admiring the lovely old homes I stopped at Silvertron Cafe, a local favorite, in the Forest Park area. It's served the community good food at reasonable prices for 25 years. We were there early enough to enjoy their special drink prices. I got a Category 5,... More

Our family have been long time patrons of the Silvertron Cafe. Although we do not live nearby the restaurant, we go there because we can always expect to receive great food and service at reasonable prices. We have been there for lunch and dinner. The menu contains a wide variety and there are always daily specials available. The owner, Marco,... More

My family visited for lunch at 1:15PM on Thursday. They have the same menu as the evening but with a few lunch specials on the back. We started off with fried cheese. There is none better than this. Large square bites of cheese covered in breadcrumbs and fried. It is served with their homemade marinara. I had the crab and... More

From beginning to end I loved this place! The music divine (think cocktail hour 50s) great wait staff. Food scrumptious! I had a Mary Pickford Cocktail with a blue cheese burger. Hubby had grouper fish and chips. Amazing! I will definitely return again and again!

Silverton has great specials (not limited to normal happy hours) such as Taco Tuesday & $4 Martini Wednesday's. The food is so great at an amazing price. I've been dining here since 2000 and the service, food and atmosphere has not disappointed. Forest Park is a great, safe and tight-knit community. Pop by Zoe's Consignment shop before or after for...

Great place to have lunch with co-workers. The food is also great. The menu is large enough to meet your moods whether it be a burger or wrap or some pasta! I would definitely recommend the French onion soup.

This was a fantastic meal. We had crab and shrimp cake sandwiches with the cheddar pasta, and fish and chips. We started it off with fried cheese. The cheese bites are the best in Birmingham. Everything was great. The service was great. We enjoyed this dinner a lot. We forget about this place because it's tucked away in Forest Park.

Description
For comforting food, a warm, relaxed atmosphere, an affordable outing for the whole family and camaraderie at the bar, The Silvertron Cafe has been a one-stop shop for residents of Birmingham for over 20 years. The Forest Park neighborhood has eagerly embraced the reopening of their old hangout which is now polished up and back in action. The new owner of The Silvertron Cafe, Marco Morosini, wants to welcome all of his dedicated patrons back to the restaurant that all of Birmingham can call their own. Like the start of any good restaurant marriage, Morosini and Silvertron Cafe have come together with some dishes old, some dishes new, some dishes borrowed and customers true blue. They have long been known for their generous portions and variety of menu items. Silvertron continues to add to that tradition to introducing new dishes (many healthier options), new cocktails and new wines. Feeling a little pinch in your wallet this year? Silvertron is still one of Birmingham's best deals in dining out. And to sweeten that deal, every Monday at Silvertron Cafe is Monday Night Pasta with every pasta on the menu only $7.95, and $1 off glasses of wine or $4 off bottles of wine. Tex-Mex Tuesdays offers a fun sampling of dishes and $3 margaritas, sure to please. Every Wednesday evening, martinis are only $4; making Silvertron an ideal place to gather with friends and celebrate the survival of the first half of the work week. It is the perfect place for a workday lunch, dinner with the kids, an evening cocktail with friends, an award-winning Saturday morning breakfast or for Sunday brunch. And if you cannot sit and relax, let Silverton prepare something for you to take home - or perhaps cater your next meeting or party
