Unlike other states and cities, Florida’s restaurant owners are not required to post restaurant inspection results where guests can see them. So every few weeks, we provide that information for you.
In the past 30 days, 99 Martin County restaurants passed inspection on the first visit and 15 did not.

Inspections are a ‘snapshot’
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s Division of Hotels and Restaurants conducts more than 48,000 inspections a year using a three-tier system for food safety and sanitation inspections.
Each inspection is a “snapshot” of conditions present at the time of the inspection and may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions at the establishment.
