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.

I've been there about 1/2 dozen times now and have never been disappointed. The menu is large enough to meet your moods whether it be a burger or wrap or some butt-kicking Italian! It has established itself as one of my favorites.

Thanks to Cathy Rogoff for reminding me of how good the experience is at SIlvertron, my wife and I revisited it today after many, many years away. We arrived about 2pm on the day before New Year's Eve. It was a slow day-part for them, so our expectations of great food quality were low. We were greeted at the door... More

this actually might be my favorite place in Birmingham. Absolutely love the food, have been here for dinner and brunch and have not been disappointed. Always lovely staff. Get the white chocolate break pudding, and then get everything else on the menu.

I stopped for appetizer and enjoyed the good appetizer and great service. The menu was an invitation for a future meal visit. Didn't have time for the full experience but will return.

Enjoyed lunch here recently. Shared the fried mushroom appetizer with my friend. We both agreed that we had never seen such a huge serving of mushroom for an appetizer and we really enjoyed them.

Located a little off the beaten path, this is a good place for a quite dinner. Most of the dishes are some sort of pasta, but they have more traditional fare too. It’s all good. The atmosphere is casual and quiet, so a good place to take a date or have a business meal. Not the most kid friendly. Have... More

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
