Looks like the health department inspectors are back from the holidays and working harder than ever. Lots of inspections this week, and we have some B’s and a C on the report card this week.
The state Department of Health regularly inspects restaurants and food facilities. The facilities are graded from A to C. “A” is the best. “C” is the equivalent of failing, but the inspection isn’t bad enough to merit the closure of the restaurant.
