Restaurant Inspections

Article excerpt

Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation says every public food service establishment - including vendors, caterers and restaurants - is inspected twice a year. Follow-up visits are made if results warrant. The department calls the reports "snapshots" of how the establishment is at the time. Locations are in Jacksonville unless noted. NOTE: Some restaurants may appear on more than one list after addressing their violations and complying with the standards.


Violations which, if left uncorrected, are more likely to directly contribute to food contamination, illness or environmental degradation. Examples include not heating food to proper temperature and not keeping proper sanitary conditions. These restaurants received 10 or more critical violations in recent inspections.


Existence of critical violations found in an initial inspection requires administrative action to ensure compliance.
