In February 2019, the Pickaway County General Health District visited dozens of restaurants, delis, and cafeterias throughout Pickaway County. In this report, we listed restaurants in the county, along with the number of violations. For the worst violator, we listed the critical infractions listed by the Health Department. We understand that running restaurants can and is difficult. Our goal is to inform our readers about the restaurants of Pickaway County, and will post any follow-up visits the Health Department does to show improvements made to any given restaurant.
