Deerfield-News. com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-On a few occasions owners or managers of restaurants that make “Dirty in Deerfield” write to me. In most cases, they try to explain that the inspector came at a super busy time or some other plausible excuse as to why they had a bad inspection. I will not mention the name of all of those owners or managers as in some cases I knew better and the inspection report was clear.
Deer Creek Country Club had its general manager write me the first time they made this list. That said Deer Creek Country Club has made this list too many times and for some of the biggest and grossest violations, a restaurant can have. Not sure what the problem is there. Some of us remember Deer Creek Country Club as being an excellent place to eat and for parties, weddings, and more that is not the case recently. Below is the most recent report and while the inspector did not find rodents running up the wall this time, they may as well have.

More information about inspections.
A summary of the violations found during the inspection are listed below. The department cites violations of Florida’s sanitation and safety laws, which are based on the standards of U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Food Code. High Priority violations are those which could contribute directly to a foodborne illness or injury and include items such as cooking, reheating, cooling and hand-washing. Intermediate violations are those which, if not addressed, could lead to risk factors that contribute to foodborne illness or injury. These violations include personnel training, documentation or record keeping and labeling. Basic violations are those which are considered best practices to implement. While most establishments correct all violations in a timely manner (often during the inspection), the division’s procedures are designed to compel compliance with all violations through follow-up visits, administration action or closure when necessary.
