DHEC inspectors drop by 4 Grand Strand restaurants

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Before you head out for dinner this weekend, WMBF News got our hands on the latest DHEC inspection reports for four Grand Strand restaurants.

First up is Benjamin's Bakery in Surfside Beach. With 95 points, DHEC gave the shop an "A" rating.

But inspectors did note a few violations. The outside of bulk bins had ingredient build up. The hand sink didn't have 110 degree water, and there were some problems with the restroom door.

Next up is China King Restaurant in Myrtle Beach. They also got an "A" rating with 95 points.

Here are some things noted by the inspector: improper storing of raw meat, the hand-sink was dirty and not maintained, and non-food contact surfaces of equipment were not properly sealed.

The next two restaurants will be expecting another visit from DHEC after receiving lower scores on their inspections.

Bellagio Italian Restaurant in Murrells Inlet received a "B" rating with 83 points. Some things cited on their report: dirty utensils, mold in a sink, unlabeled food products, and sausage was improperly stored.

Now to Plantation Pancake House in North Myrtle Beach. After noting things like chemical bottles without labels, dirty pans, dirty shelves and equipment, and no labeling on bulk sugar, this restaurant got 77 points. That's a "C" rating.
