MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Three days after DHEC inspectors issued a score of 56 to Soho Steak and Seafood restaurant, the Japanese-Mediterranean fare eatery still earned a C grade.

Thursday, during a follow-up inspection, DHEC issued Soho Steak and Seafood a score of 71.

WMBF News has issued a FOIA request for the inspection report.

Monday, inspectors said they found rotten vegetables in the coolers at the restaurant. In addition, a sushi chef was found eating in the food prep areas, and a cook not using soap when washing his hands, according to DHEC.

On top of that, raw meat and fish were not handled properly and food containers were left open. Inspectors also noted that the back door was left open, which can allow critters inside.
