Restaurant Scorecard: Jan. 6

Posted: Updated:

SOUTH CAROLINA (WMBF) - The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control aims at improving food safety at area restaurants through a statewide inspection initiative.

The results, which are made available to the public, are based off of a 100 point checklist that inspects 50 areas of each chosen establishment. The lowest grade a restaurant can receive is a "C" rating, or 70 to 77 points.

The following are two of the latest restaurant inspection results in Georgetown and Myrtle Beach:

Great Wall Chinese Restaurant | 1049 N. Fraser St., Georgetown

Overall Grade: 81 – B

During an inspection, a DHEC employee found an employee not washing their hands after eating. Part of the problem was said to be a handsink that was blocked and not accessible for use.

The inspector made the restaurant clear out the objects in front of the sink.

Mouse droppings were also found near the back door and storage area. Pest control was called.

Various areas were in need of cleaning or repair.
