Restaurant inspectors: What do they look for?

Each inspection report is a "snapshot" of conditions present at the restaurant at the time of the inspection. On any given day, an establishment may have fewer or more violations than noted in their most recent inspection. GINNY BEAGAN

Our new digital database of restaurant inspections is updated daily with the latest inspection reports from Jacksonville-area restaurants. 

You can use the database to search by county or by restaurant name. And you can see which restaurants were fined and which were forced into temporary closure by emergency order. 

Each week we'll share area restaurants that aced their inspections, while also highlighting those with the most violations.
