Jacksonville, FLA. - Matanzas Innlet is located in historic Saint Augustine on South A1A. This week the state health inspector issued more than half a dozen high priority violations for the restaurant. Here is what we found in the most recent state health inspection:
A stop sale was issued on the ice used for drinks. The inspector noted a can was stored in the ice and that the manager threw out half the ice in the machine
An employee didn't wash their hands before working with food
A dead roach was found on the floor as well as live small flies in the kitchen
When we called and sent the following e-mail to owner Jerry Galasso for a comment. Hi Jerry,
I just called the restaurant to speak with you about your most recent state health inspection. I left a message with your manager.
Matanzas Innlet is at the top of the list this week with the most number (7) high priority violations.
Please call me or email me back when you can. I wanted to make sure I had a statement from you to include in our Restaurant Report this week.
Thanks so much!
