Indian River County restaurant inspections: 13 eateries didn’t pass first inspection

EntertainmentIndian River County restaurant inspections: 13 eateries didn't pass first inspection

Florida’s restaurant owners are not required to post restaurant inspection results where guests can see them. So every few weeks, we provide that information for you.

Each inspection report is a “snapshot” of conditions present at the time of the inspection. On any given day, an establishment may have fewer or more violations than noted in its most recent inspection. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions at the establishment.
