2 Claxton Restaurants Fail Health Inspections

All reports are public information, published by the Georgia Department of Public Health, and posted in a conspicuous location at the establishment. Any questions about scores should be directed to the Department of Public Health.

Scores below 70 are considered failing. When a restaurant is deemed unacceptable, follow-up inspections are generally completed within 10 days of the original evaluation.

Any restaurant with a C grade or F grade will have the link to the full report detailing point deductions below the grade.

Reports are published on AllOnGeorgia *once* per week. In any instance when an establishment receives a failing grade and DPH goes back for a second visit, the second report will appear on next week’s report.

Two establishments received A grades this week while two failed to pass inspection.
