Restaurant inspections are conducted by the Niagara County Health Department.
Every establishment that serves food is evaluated at least annually by the department.
Violations are coded by the health department as: Critical items that could lead to food-borne illness, which must be immediately attended to; or as items relating to sanitation, design, maintenance and cleanliness, which must be corrected by the next regular inspection or as soon as an inspector returns.
