Search our interactive restaurant inspections database to check inspection and disciplinary history of any local restaurant from Jan. 1, 2013 to present. Search by county (Martin, Palm Beach, Okeechobee, St. Lucie, and Indian River) or restaurant name to see what state inspectors found when they stopped at your favorite restaurant.
This is just a snapshot of the conditions present at the time of the inspection. On any given day, there may be more or less violations than listed in the most recent inspection. The state said an inspection on a certain date may not represent the overall health conditions at a business.
NOTE: The database now includes restaurant inspection reports from across Florida. To see Palm Beach County select the Southeast region. For Treasure Coast reports, select Central East.
