Inspection reports are compiled by the Cherokee County Environmental Health Department to give consumers insight into the safety and retail practices of restaurants and tourist accommodations.

Establishments are scored out of 100 possible points, with points deducted for violations in two categories: risk factors and general retail practices.

More points are deducted for violations that cause a higher risk for illness and for repeat offenses. Letter grades are assigned based on the restaurant’s score: a score of 100 to 90 gets an A; 89 to 80 gets a B; 79 to 70 gets a C; and less than 70 gets a U.

Below, the restaurant or tourist accommodation is listed with its address, the date of most recent inspection and score. Bullets indicate a violation, and an asterisk indicates that the violation is a known risk factor for foodborne illness.
