A follow up inspection will be conducted Friday September 7th. Critical items #1, 11, 11, 17 and 22 shall be corrected

The score for this inspection was so low (76) that the restaurant received the following letter from the Kentucky Health Department:

The Department found on the follow-up inspection on September 7, 2018 that these violations had been corrected. But it found additional violations at that time, including “[o]bserved chipotle, mash potatoes, demi, and onion sauce past 7 day datemark.” This is despite the fact that the hotel had notice that the inspection would take place that day.
