Earl's Hideaway Lounge had one of the best health inspections this month in Sebastian.

The health inspector made a visit to several Sebastian-area restaurants and bars this month.

Boathouse Pub, Ruby Tuesday, Earl’s Hideaway Lounge, Skydive Sebastian (Zoo Bar), and KFC & Taco Bell were some of the best restaurant inspections.

Boathouse Pub in Grant had the best score in February. One of the violations was a pack of cigarettes lying on a table near some spices. That was corrected on-site.

Ruby Tuesday had a couple of minor violations, but nothing major or serious. There were a few water spots on the kitchen floor. That was correct on-site. And, the inspector suggested keeping their plates covered while being stored. Overall, a great inspection.

Earl’s Hideaway Lounge also had a good inspection. On February 18, 2020, the inspector wrote them up for misplacing some eggshells in the walk-in cooler. They also didn’t have a chlorine test kit to measure the concentration of the sanitizer solution used for wiping cloths.

Skydive Sebastian’s “Zoo Bar” had a few minor violations on February 18, 2020. The inspector didn’t like a floor fan that had some dust on it, and there were a few floor tiles in disrepair. They had a great inspection, nothing major.

KFC & Taco Bell did very well during the inspector’s visit on February 19, 2020. There was a small puddle of water in the kitchen, and the inspector wanted some single-service articles put into containers. This establishment has come a long way since it’s recent remodel.

This year, so far, we are seeing nothing but positive improvements in health inspections around Sebastian.
