Silverball patrons no longer have to leave the bar to grab a late-night bite in Columbia.
Last week, the pinball bar started serving slices out of its kitchen until close, and now the bar is rolling out other options on a menu served from 4 to 9pm. Currently, the kitchen serves mostly fried foods like wings, french fries and mozzarella sticks – perfect to supplement a night of drinking – but a selection of sliders is also in the works.
"A lot of people want to hang out there, and we didn't want them to have to leave to get food," says owner Nic Parks. "So we just figured, make it a one-stop food, drink and entertainment place."
Parks says that while they concentrated on introducing offerings that make good late-night foods, the kitchen is also limited in space and can't fit, say, a grill to do burgers. Plus, given that Booches is just a few doors down, they didn't want to step on any toes.
Silverball will slowly be rolling out more food options, but no timeline is set for when new dishes will be on the menu.
Silverball's full menu is available Tuesday through Saturday from 4 to 9pm. After 9pm, only pizza is served.
