St. Lucie County December restaurant inspections: 1 eatery shut down; 12 had no violations

NewsSt. Lucie County December restaurant inspections: 1 eatery shut down; 12 had no violations

Florida’s restaurant owners are not required to post restaurant inspection results where guests can see them. So every few weeks, TCPalm provides 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.

In the last few weeks, 79 restaurants passed inspection at the first visit. Twenty one restaurants did not pass the first inspection at the first visit. Twelve restaurants had zero violations.
