Tip Top Grill


I think it won’t matter what you order at the Tip Top Grill because you’ll be so enthralled with the view. However, for a breakfast that is good and economical, it can’t be beat.

On my first visit I ordered a ham and egg sandwich. And I said “yes” to the question, “Do you want mayonnaise?” I DO like mayo, but I’ll never go as far as the man who plans to be buried in a Duke’s Mayonnaise jar. Anyway, it was tasty and a perfect start to a great Saturday morning.

The restaurant overlooks the Oxmoor Valley Golf Course and a Lover’s leap. Quite a combination. The Lover’s Leap is a dramatic set of limestone boulders that protrude out over the valley. One Indian legend says an Indna brave, weary of the attentions of an Indian princess, took her to the high crest where he stabbed her with a bone knife. Then, in remorse, he gathered her in his arms and leaped off the bluff.

Next time I want to try out the lunch menu. Or, better yet, dinner and a sunset.

Located at 588 Shades Crest Road
