Comfort Food Lunch, Dinner or Breakfast All Day!

Inverness locals know a visit to The Magic City is not complete without a stop at the best comfort food restaurant around, the award-winning Metro Diner! It’s no wonder we’re consistently on the list of Top Ten Best Restaurants in the Inverness area and why Birmingham’s B-Metro Magazine named Metro Diner to their “Best of the City” list. Metro Diner Birmingham Inverness stays true to our humble roots with must-try signature items like Fried Chicken & Waffles and our famous Iron City Meatloaf (as featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives).

Located in the Inverness Plaza, just minutes from The Summit Shopping Center and Lee Branch theater, Metro Diner Inverness is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner before or after a day of shopping or catching the latest blockbuster movie. Fuel up before visiting nearby Samford University, the Birmingham Zoo, Vulcan Park and the McWane Science Center.

The Best Place for Family Dining

From Kids Meals to Senior Favorites

So, the family is in town for the weekend. Three words: Fish Fry Friday! Metro Diner’s family dinners could not be easier, or more fun! If your small fry doesn’t go for fish fry, we recommend something on our Kid’s Menu – like the kid-sized Fried Chicken & Waffles, topped with sweet strawberry butter and powdered sugar.

For the little ones, a trip to Oak Mountain State Park offers mountain biking, hiking, nature walks, camping and a swimming beach. Or spend an afternoon at the Birmingham Zoo, which is home to 180 species and endangered species from 6 continents. The lakeside green space, playgrounds and war memorial at Veterans Park is another great place to while away the afternoon.

Or grab one of our Family Meal to-go and take Metro Diner along for the ride. Metro Diner Inverness offers breakfast, lunch or dinner to go via contactless pick-up or delivery, and we offer catering, too! Metro Diner also has business catering, graduation catering, corporate event catering and even wedding catering!
