Food Establishment Inspections

This is for restaurant inspections only, if you want day care inspections go to the "Day Care Providers" section below. The inspection search looks the same, but you won't get the same results.

Health District Environmental Health Specialists conduct regular inspections of restaurants, taverns, grocery stores, meat markets, farmer’s markets, schools, food processors, and other facilities that handle Potentially Hazardous Foods (PHF’s) to determine proper hygiene and food handling practices of operators and their employees.

All food facilities receive one unannounced inspection each year. When critical violations are noted during an inspection, they must be corrected immediately or the inspector will have to schedule a follow-up inspection or issue a violation correction report.

You can search our database for inspections either by the name of the food establishment or by the city in which it resides or by utilizing both. The database maintains data for the last three years.

Day Care Provider Inspections
