Primary Menu

It’s that weekly list I dread. The restaurants flagged by health inspectors report is out tonight. And a LEGENDARY Tampa dining spot is on it.

The Columbia Restaurant had 26 violations, according to Channel 8. They say the ladies restroom was dirty and they put a stop sale on the squid because of how it was stored. At least the Cubans and salad weren’t on the list. There’s no way I could ever take Columbia off my list of go to spots for lunch. After all, I never eat squid and rarely use the ladies room.

The place with the most violations on the report was Johnny’s Pizza in St. Pete. Their 42 violations included food storage temperatures and raw meat was right above deli meat.

Others on the naughty list this week include:

  • Great Wall Chinese Restaurant in Ruskin
  • Grand Hacienda in St. Pete
  • Glen Lakes Country Club in Brooksville
  • Santa Fe Mexican Grill in Largo
  • Tampa Buffet on Dale Mabry

If you missed it, here’s last week’s report:
