MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Roaches were seen climbing up the walls and flies were found near the sink in a few eateries. But don't worry, a couple spots get near-perfect scores, including a new Italian restaurant.
We've got your dining details covered in this week's Restaurant Scorecard.
Shoney's is at 1206 S. Kings Hwy., in Myrtle Beach. The family-oriented chain serves an all-American diner-style menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Health inspectors gave the spot a 71 out of 100. They say they saw drain flies around the sink, and around wet and soiled towels.
Inspectors also noted that food was improperly labeled, with rice marked as ham. Also, sliced ham and uncooked ground beef was missing a specific use-by date, as well as other infractions.
Pizza Roma, which also goes by Pizza Romeo's, serves up pie and Italian items at 3318 U.S. 17 South in North Myrtle Beach. Inspectors gave it a 76 at a follow-up inspection, taking off points for roaches spotted running up walls, employees not using soap when washing their hands, and improperly stored and labeled food.
If you're looking for fine dining and more than 40 years of experience, you'll find everything from roasted duck and Steak Diane to bananas foster done table-side at the Library Restaurant. Named because it was the temporary public library while Chapin Memorial Library was getting built, the spot at 6613 N. Kings Hwy., in Myrtle Beach recently got a near-perfect 99. A point was deducted for the way an item was stored in the cooler.
Casa Calamari is a new Italian restaurant located at 1900 U.S. 17 North in Surfside Beach. Inspectors gave them a near-perfect 99, taking off a point for a hole that was discovered under the serving window.
The restaurant features everything from seafood and sandwiches to salads and pasta.
