Restaurant Scorecard: Four Grand Strand Stops, all A's

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - If you go to a restaurant and notice something just doesn’t seem right, you can report it to the Department of Health. Inspectors will evaluate the situation and make sure the eatery is sticking to the rules.

That's what happened at Fatz Cafe in Conway. DHEC got a complaint about several issues. When inspectors showed up, they found, some of those complaints valid, and others, not. They say the restaurant was missing soap dispensers, and an employee was observed handling food with their bare hands, but both violations were corrected during the inspection. Overall, the restaurant scored an 88, which is an A.

When WMBF News showed up, nobody was available for comment. According to the report, DHEC will be back to Fatz Cafe, for a follow-up inspection.

A restaurant with the same score, Johnny D's Waffles and Bakery, in Myrtle Beach, had a much longer list of violations.

A DHEC Inspector noted, employees were corrected for touching food without gloves. They were also corrected for old food particles lingering on a slicer. A violation inspectors will have to come back to check on: many flies in the kitchen, prep, and storage areas.

DHEC inspectors handed out a perfect 100 score to Highway 55 Burgers and Fries in Georgetown.

A nearly perfect score of a 95 was given to the Garden City Pier Cafe. Regular Bob Brouse says, this does not surprise him, and he would know, he visits the area several times a year, and is a regular at this cafe.

"I recommend they eat eggs sunny side up, bacon and white toast,” Brouse said. "There's nothing else to say, great food, great atmosphere, the ocean's here."
