Undercliff Grill and bar - ​Our History

the begining...

There is a lot of history under the cliff...  In the mid 1800's, a Mr Tipton owned this land where the river was low enough for people traveling between Joplin and Neosho to make the crossing; the town which grew here was named Tipton Ford.  In 1928, Ab McConnell opened a general store on this site named Under Cliff, which is where our name originated.  The store operated until 1961 when Frank & Bonnie's, known for delicious fried chicken (which we do not serve), opened.  In 1980, a fire destroyed the restaurant and the land remained vacant until Undercliff Grill & Bar was established in February 1995.

Undercliff is a family owned and operated restaurant, serving fresh food to order.  So, relax with your friends and family under the cliff while we prepare your order especially the way you like it.  The minutes you wait are minutes that we spend making sure your visit to Undercliff is more than a meal!  Our supplies are limited, enjoy them while they last!  Please remember, we are a RESTaurant, not a RUSHaurant.  Enjoy your visit.

We use only the best ingredients that keep
customers coming back AGAIN ANd again.
