I know the restaurant exists but I can't find it.

Refine your search:

My search returns a restaurant but there are no inspection reports.

Restaurants that change management receive new permits. In this case, It is possible that a long standing restaurant with new management will have only a few recent inspections.

What if my establishment of interest is not in Scott County?

The Scott County Health Department inspects restaurants in all the cities and unincorporated areas of Scott County, Iowa. If the establishment is outside of Scott County, you need to contact that city or county's Health Department.

How often is the food inspection database updated?

The food inspection database is updated daily.

How far back does the database report?

Although paper records go back for many years, the Health Department has been recording food inspections in the computer database since November 2, 2000.

Why do some inspections not have comments?

The comment field was added to the database at the beginning of 2002 so that users of the database can have a better understanding of the violation. All reports prior to 2002 will only have the violation but no comments. You will have to visit the Health Department and ask for a paper report to see those comments.
