I am always on the lookout for the best burger and the one today was impressive! Lots of cheese, bacon and all the trimmings, along with a bunch of some of the best fries ever! Thank you Tip Top Grill! And what a view!

Prime location, beautiful view. Good BLT, Hamburgers, Fries, Hot dogs. No air conditioning but the food is good and so inexpensive! Order from the counter and you have it in5 minutes or less. Very popular spot.

This place really shows how pretty Birmingham is. You will have great views. I go to college in Birmingham so when friends and family visit I always take them here. This isn’t the place to go if you’re looking for the best breakfast you’ve ever...More

Great views, mediocre food- the staff was so unfriendly! The only words spoken were “What do you want”- and “It’s $22.46”! No smile, no thank you- nothing. If I go back I will simply stand by the picnic tables and look at the view.

We decided to venture out a little and try to find the grill. So glad we did the food was fantastic and the view was breathtaking. The service was fast even though it was very crowded.

There is no question that Tip Top has the best view and very good food. The view is breathtaking, the hot dogs are a tad expensive and the employees are very friendly. Worth a trip just to sit outside and take in the view.

Tip Top is right on top of the escarpment with a great view of the valley below. Parking can be challenging. Food is only so-so and is your standard burger, fries and hot dog stuff. Staff was friendly and attentive. The place seems to be...More

I didn't mean to give it 2 stars, meant just to give one star. Had cheeseburger, fries and drink x2 for $17.00. Burger was very plain, sauce is bland. Ketchup was all over the bottom of the service tray. Staff is friendly but too many...More

Cheeseburgers and fries were a delicious cheap breakfast eat and the location is beautiful. However, the staff didn't acknowledge us and made us feel stupid about not knowing where to order and who to order from. Overall very rude staff.
