Restaurant Report Card: 12.14.17 North Main Old Town Buffet

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN (WTVG) -- Health inspectors are always checking to make sure employees at your restaurant are following the rules. That includes making sure they have enough sanitizer in the sanitizer bucket.

In one restaurant, there was none.

That restaurant was King Buffet on North Main St. in Bowling Green. During the last Standard Health Inspection, the Wood County Health District gave King Buffet 11 Violations, including 3 Critical:

X Rusted racks used to store food.
X Several surfaces in need of cleaning.
X No sanitizer in the sanitizer bucket.

That last one was corrected during the inspection.

13abc called King Buffet in Bowling Green and left a phone number with an employee. We're still waiting to hear from an owner.

Next, Alehouse Grill. It's also on North Main St. in BG. A sanitarian here noted 12 Violations, including 4 Critical. Among those:

X Refried beans without a date mark.
X Container lids with cracks.
X Build up in the ice machine.

In response, the owner of Alehouse Grill, Jason Shawberry, told 13abc over the phone:

"They were all minor violations. They've all been take of already. We don't anticipate any more problems."

Inside Holiday Inn French Quarter in Perrysburg, J. Patrick's Restaurant had 17 Violations, but only 2 of those were Critical:

X Debris in the containers holding the ice scoops.
X Employee purses stored on the prep table.
X Turkey at 54F in the walk-in cooler.

In response, Brenda Fey, General Manager of Holiday Inn French Quarter, emailed 13abc:

"While the number of violations is regrettable, the violations specified were related to condition of facility and repair of equipment. Our valued guests were never in peril. We have corrected nearly all of the violations with the remaining being capital items we will soon complete. We enjoy a respected reputation with the health department and look forward to a solid evaluation when they next visit."

Several days later, sanitarians returned for a Follow-Up. That second inspection brought the overall number of violations down to 6.

Finally, a restaurant that has been on the Restaurant Report Card before. For the third Standard Health Inspection in a row, this restaurant had double-digit violations.

During its latest, North Main Old Town Buffet in Bowling Green had 22 Violations, including 7 Critical. For example:

X Several ready to eat food items without a date mark.
X Build up on food containers, scoops and counters.
X Eggs and bok choy sitting out at room temperature.

13abc spoke with an employee of North Main Old Town Buffet over the phone. We're still waiting for a call back from an owner.
