Flips restaurant closes its doors after 20 years of service

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Flips Uptown Grill has served its last customer.

After more than 20 years of serving food and hosting car shows for the citizens of Montgomery, the popular restaurant has closed its doors. Flips was packed with customers on Friday, with the announcement of it closing.

The owner, Philip Philippou, spent time thanking customers for their service and decades of good memories. The closing is a result of insurance cost due to the arson at the Atlanta Highway Flips location.

The Vaughn Road location will become a Shrimp Basket, a popular Gulf Coast seafood restaurant.
