The following are among the food service establishments inspected from Nov. 1-8 by the Hall County Health Department. The department scores on a 100-percentile scale, with 85 and above considered passing.
Kitchens are inspected at least every six months and are required to post their score sheets in public. A new establishment that has never served food must score a 100 to receive an initial report. When a restaurant changes ownership, another inspection is required. The establishment must score a 94 or higher to receive a new permit.
To register a complaint against a restaurant, call the health department at (770) 531-3973.
