The Pike County Health Department normally inspects restaurants and other eating establishments twice a year, checking food storage, preparations, personnel, restrooms, water and other health conditions.

A perfect score on an inspection is 100 percent. Points are subtracted if violations are found; 85 to 100 percent indicates compliance with the health department guidelines; 70 to 84 percent means the establishment must be re-inspected within 30 days If problems have not been corrected, it faces possible closure; 60 to 69 percent means the establishment will have five days to request a hearing to show why it should be allowed to continue operations and 59 percent or less means an automatic and immediate closing if conditions pose an immediate health risk to the public.

Certain conditions and practices are considered potentially serious threats to the public’s health. These require correction within ten days. An asterisk notes such deficiencies before the restaurant score.

An asterisk appears before the name of the establishment follow-ups if corrections are not made and will require another follow-up.

The following inspections were conducted during the month of August 2013:
