Comments are taken directly from the latest Thurston County inspection reports, which are available at each food establishment and at the Thurston County Environmental Health Office. For questions concerning these reports, contact the health office at 360-867-2667.

Additional restaurant inspections, as well as restaurant inspections for the previous six months can be found in our online database at theolympian.com/thurston-health-inspections.

Reading inspection scores:

• Attention should be given to the type of violation (red versus blue) and whether the restaurant has a history of red violations or repeat violations.



• Red violations are those most likely to cause foodborne illness and must be corrected immediately if feasible or according to a compliance schedule established by the health officer. Example: not keeping food at the right temperature.



• Blue violations relate to the overall cleanliness and condition of operation and must be corrected according to a compliance schedule established by the health officer. Example: a worn floor that needs replacing.
