PORTLAND / CUMBERLAND (WGME) -- Gritty McDuffs is an Old Port staple known for great beer and plenty of finger foods to pick from. The Health Department had advice for staff after they failed a recent inspection.
The inspector cited eight violations, five of which were foodborne illness risk factors, including, "equipment food contact surfaces and utensils are not clean to sight and touch. Specifically, potato cutter not cleaned after use, ice machine needs cleaning".
General Manager Jacob Condon says those problems were corrected on the spot. Condon said, " He told us what we need to do and we do it".
The proof is in the follow up report. Inspectors found no problems. Condon says it's all about keeping customers safe and happy.
"This time of the year there are so many people locally and from far away that come here, we need to keep our name at the top," said Condon.
From swinging clubs to drinks on the deck Val Halla's Golf Course in Cumberland has something for just about everyone. When your done on the course, stop in Rachel's on the Green for a bite to eat.
"We have everything from pizza to haddock to steak," said owner Mike Smith.
Last month, the Health Department found things weren't up to par. Inspectors failed the eatery, citing 11 violations, including "food not contacting only clean equipment and utensils. Specifically, pieces of cardboard from raw bacon boxes used to dry fried foods."
Owner Mike Smith says the inspector's checklist is always changing and he's happy to adapt as well.
Smith said, "He told me what needed to be done and we improved on it".
The inspector returned two weeks later and all problems had been corrected.
A hole in one for the restaurant.
Smith said, "I was very pleased with the perfect score after".
