Health inspectors are keeping a close eye out for hygiene violations - things like handling food and drinks properly and correct hand washing procedures. If these violations are allowed to go on without being corrected, customers could possibly get sick.

Lowest Scores:

Eastside Restaurant, 1802 East Broad Avenue, Albany - Grade: 85

According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, any score below 70 is considered unsanitary.

During the inspection, the health inspector observed that the fume hood needs to be cleaned. The refrigerator was not keeping items chilled at forty-one degrees and the prep sink needs to be prepared.

The person in charge was notified so that the repairs could be made.

Captain D's, 1902 East Oglethorpe Boulevard, Albany - Grade: 90

Here the health inspector found uncovered food and torn bags of food in the freezer.

The inside of the ince machine needs to be cleaned and the sanitizer was not up to proper strength.

Captain D's was also cited for not having hot water in the sinks.
