MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - We begin this week’s Restaurant Scorecard with Marina Inn At Grande Dunes at 8121 Amalfi Place. Inspectors found the soap and paper towel dispensers were not working at the hand sink on the cook line.

The glass door cooler at the wait station was storing numerous items at improper temperatures. Among those items were melons, pasta, sausage, pork, turkey salmon, beef and cooked chicken..

Inspectors say several ready-to-eat items were kept more than 24 hours and were not date marked. The breakfast menu was missing asterisks indicating food may be served raw or under-cooked. Tuna was not cut during the thawing process to let air in.

Marina Inn At Grande Dunes received a 90 out of 100.

Next up is Friendly’s at 506 South Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach. Inspectors found a knife stored between condiment bottles, as well as ice build-up around the door of the reach-in freezer.

Inspectors said the wall in dry storage was not smooth or easy to clean, and damaged ceiling tiles were found in the room that houses the ice machine. .

Friendly’s received a 95 out of 100.

There were so many perfect scores this week we will share three with you. Mariner Pizza at 7003 North Ocean Boulevard, and Vista at Captain’s Quarters at 901 S. Ocean Blvd., both in Myrtle Beach. And Arby’s at 680 U.S. 17 North in North Myrtle Beach. All three receive 100s.

Look for Jimmy John’s to open its latest location off of Highway 17 Bypass between Panda Express and Tropical Smoothie Cafe near S.C. 544 in Horry County. No word on when those freaky fast and freaky fresh subs will be served.
