Health Grades

Happy 4th of July. Surely, everyone is ready to celebrate our nation’s freedom and enjoy some time with friends and family. I know I am.

Just in time for your vacation celebration, here is the restaurant report card for the month of June. As you know, our friends at the Bladen County Health Department inspect restaurants, kitchens, cafeterias, even summer camps and hotel accommodations to ensure a standard of sanitation and healthful conditions wherever food is served.

June was a busy month for our inspectors because they had so many places to inspect. I’m grateful that they are on the job and I offer a special kudos to Cottages at Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery for scoring 100% on their inspection. So, check out the list below and enjoy your meal no matter where you eat. Bon AppititĂ©.

Note: The grade for the schools are for the buildings and NOT the School Lunchrooms.
