Restaurants, Catering and B&Bs


The Environmental Health Program conducts two unannounced routine health inspections per year and investigates consumer complaints. If a public health risk is identified, an Environmental Health Specialist conducts a follow-up inspection. Inspections focus on food temperatures, food preparation practices, worker hygiene, dishwashing and sanitizing, equipment, and facility cleanliness.

Restaurant Inspection Scores are public record. A restaurant must receive a score of 70 to pass the inspection. Consumers can find a placard near the restaurant entrance that indicates if a facility passed the last health inspection.

Note: New Food Service Rules were adopted September 4, 2012. For more information about the changes, visit the Food Code Adoption page.
