Post From Property Owner
This morning, The Bluff Park, Alabama Neighborhood Facebook Page shared a post from the Bluff Park United Facebook page describing the status of property.
Here is the post:
“As many have heard, Tip Top Grill has closed their doors.
A lot of speculation has been posted as to the reason. Here is what the owner of the property, Forrest Smith, has posted on Bluff Park United:
Tip Top Grill
Hey Bluff Park,
My family has owned the Tip Top property since 2013. We do not have any intentions of selling it.
About 30 days ago Tip Top Grill sent us a 60 Day Letter of Termination. We did not ask them to leave or take away their current lease agreement.
We are working on some plans to update the property and clean it up. We are also actively talking to people interested in being in the property.
We are looking forward to getting the spot reopened and continue to provide a place for beautiful views on the Bluff.
I appreciate everyone’s passion for Bluff Park and glad we can be a part of it.”
Beloved Place and Views
According to Bhamwiki, Tip Top Grill, the small restaurant which is inside a gas station at the intersection of Shades Crest Road and Park Avenue in the Hoover Bluff Park neighborhood first opened in 2003.
