No failures to report this week, and much to celebrate, with 18 establishments earning perfect scores.

But all is not perfect in the dining world; a few places will need to refocus food safety efforts on training and cleanliness.

At the BlueWater Grille, 224 Broad Street; inspectors scored them with a 76  as they found staff with not enough food safety knowledge, employee drink at hand sink, cooler door in poor repair, food stored on floor of freezer, wet stacking of clean equipment, non-food contact surfaces dirty, food stored at incorrect temperatures. Corrected to 96. 

Kobe, 2603 Battlefield Parkway earned a score of 77 for no employee illness policy posted, food stored at incorrect temperatures, raw shrimp improperly thawing, several ready-to-use items with chips and cracks being used, floors, walls, and equipment with heavy food debris, dust and grease build-up.

At Papa Johns, 2700 Broad Street, 77, with reasons including no employee illness policy posted, sanitizer not accurately stocked, signs of insects present.
