Jacksonville, FLA. - The King and The Bear Restaurant is located on King and Bear Drive in Saint Augustine. This week the state health inspector issued an emergency and temporarily closed down the restaurant. Here's what we uncovered in the latest inspection report.
Six high priority violations:
Dead roaches were found in the cook line equipment
Live roaches were seen in the fan of a drawer cooler on the cook line
There were several issues with the temperature of food, mainly chicken

Jim Hahn, General Manager of The King & The Bear sent us this statement about the violations: 

"The recent after-hours inspection, by the Florida division of hotels and restaurants, has brought to light some maintenance issues in the clubhouse kitchen at The King & Bear, which were not in compliance with our company standards.  All the issues were immediately addressed that evening and resolved within a few hours. The dining facility opened the following morning. Furthermore, we have implemented additional procedures as preventative measures to ensure this does not happen again."

Other restaurants at the top of the high priority list this week include:

At The Mandarin Ale House there were seven high priority violations including an employee who didn't wash their hands before working with food.

At The University Diner on Merrill road in Jacksonville there were six high priority violations including live small flying insects in the food storage area.

The following restaurants had zero violations and earn our clean plate award:

Pablo Creek Club: Jacksonville
Chick Fil A @ Allstate: Jacksonville
Blue Cross Blue Shield Bldg: Jacksonville
A Step Above Catering Company: Saint Augustine
