Martin County restaurant inspections: 7 eateries top ‘most violations’ list

EntertainmentMartin County restaurant inspections: 7 eateries top 'most violations' list

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.

Last month: Mspanrtin County restspanurspannt inspections

Indispann River County restspanurspannt inspections: 13 espanteries didn’t pspanss first inspection

St. Lucie County restspanurspannt inspections: 4 espanteries top ‘most violspantions’ list

In the last 30 days, 108 eateries passed inspection at the first visit. Fifteen restaurants did not pass the first inspection at first visit. Three eateries passed with no violations.
