Popular event venue earns failing grade

Posted: Updated:

A restaurant with a top notch view has a score that’s at the bottom of the barrel.

The Fairyland Club on Lookout Mountain failed with a score of 68. Any scores below a 70 are considered failing. The inspector found unapproved drink bottles on food prep counters and saw an employee drink out of an unapproved cup over a customer’s food, then set the drink down next to the food. Crab cakes were stored next to raw chicken in a prep cooler and raw bacon was next to ready-to-eat food in a walk-in cooler.

Several foods, including soup, sour cream, mayonnaise and salsa were stored at 50 degrees or higher, when they should be 41 degrees or cooler. The inspector also found several foods throughout the facility kept past a seven-day discard date.

The low score will earn the restaurant a second inspection from the health department. This isn’t the first time the Fairyland Club has made headlines in Restaurant Report Card. Last June, the restaurant scored a 70, only one point above failing. It improved its score in that case to a 96.

Good news for the Windstone Golf Club on Windstone Drive in Ringgold. The restaurant posted a failing grade of 67 last week, but improved its score to a 91 on a second inspection. 

Most restaurants in Hamilton County and elsewhere in north Georgia fared well. Several even earned perfect scores of 100. Congratulations to:
