Popular Little River buffet gets 'C' rating from DHEC

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) The Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) dropped in on Wok at the Dock in Little River for a routine inspection last week. According to the report, the Cantonese-style restaurant scored a 71, which is a ‘C' rating after an inspector found 13 violations.

Three of those violations were critical. The report shows the inspector found cooked rice kept at improper temperatures, and problems with the water supply. The water at the hand sink was not cold enough and there were issues with the plumping. The inspector also observed employees using the wrong method for hand washing.

The DHEC report goes on to shows the inspector gave restaurant employees a long list of items to clean. These items include the sink, prep tables, can opener, floors, ceiling tiles, and the ventilator hood.

Crystal Zayour dines at Wok at the Dock frequently. She was surprised to learned the restaurant got a ‘C' rating after a routine inspection. "When I go in there for lunch, I never seen an issue to where I wouldn't go back," said Zayour.

Raymond Chen is an employee at Wok at the Dock. Chen says the timing for the routine  inspection was just bad.

"It was busy and we got a little bit mixed up," explained Chen. He moved on to say this is why things slipped through the cracks.

A DHEC inspector had a follow up inspection five days later. According to the DHEC report for the follow up inspection, Wok at the Dock scored 100. There were no violations found and the restaurant now has an ‘A' rating.

Just down the block, an inspector stopped in at Pizza Hut for a routine inspection. The pizza shop received an ‘A' rating.

According to the DHEC report, Pizza Hut scored a 97 and was cited for three violations.

The DHEC inspector left a short list for employees to do. The inspector requested that employees use proper storage for mops, to clean the hood and filters, and to add weather stripping to the back door.
