UPDATE: River Drifters' score was improved to a 97 after re-inspection.


Happy first day of Summer! Let’s start with some good news. If you’re looking to cool off, Snow Daze Shaved Ice in Hamilton County scored a 100.

However, there were two places that lost points due to some cleaning violations. River Drifters on Suck Creek Road scored a 77.

Reasons included the staff was not in control or knowledgeable about several food-borne illness risk factors.  Inspectors say a cook was handling bread and other ready-to-eat foods with his bare hands. In addition, there was a gap at the bottom of the door in the kitchen. Also, inspectors found grease build up on the floor under the fryer. 

n North Georgia, Huddle House on S. Third Avenue in Chatsworth scored a 77. Inspectors found a large number of flies in the kitchen. In addition, the sanitizer in the cloth buckets was too weak, according to state standards. 

In all, there were 17 perfect scores found in Hamilton County and North Georgia.

If you have a complaint about a restaurant, swimming pool or the place where you workout, call your local health department

Enjoy your meal!
