Best and worst restaurant inspection reports in the Chattanooga area for the week ending Feb. 13, 2024

The Hamilton County, Catoosa County and Walker County health departments inspect restaurants twice a year and grade businesses on a 100-point scale. Scores below 70 require corrective action. Restaurants are reinspected if they fail to meet critical standards. The scores are original and do not reflect on-the-spot changes, which sometimes lead to upward adjustments.

To file a health-related complaint, call:

Chattanooga-Hamilton County Health Department: 423-209-8110.

Catoosa County Health Department: 706-406-2030.

Walker County Health Department: 706-639-2574.
