Restaurant Inspections

Lexington foodservice establishment inspection scores are now online!

  • Click here to view the most recent inspection scores.

Foodservice establishments are inspected at least every six months and more often if needed.

Restaurants are required to post their most recent inspection scores in a conspicuous spot near the business’ entrance. Scores of 85 or higher with no three-, four- or five-point violations will be posted with a numeric value in green, while scores of 84 or lower or those with three-, four- or five- point violations will be posted in red.  To see an example of completed, scored cards, click here (pdf document).

Retail, mobile food units, pushcarts, restricted concession and temporary food service operations do not need to publicly post their most recent inspection scores.

The Board of Health approved amendments to Food Service Regulation 19 in April 2013. Click here to see a full copy of the updated regulation. Click here to see a copy that highlights the amendments.
