New Times Caught Telling Fish Tales
On March 24, 2009 Fish Tales was ordered to stop oprerations by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation due to excessive violations that endangered the health of customers. Granted, the establishment was inspected again one day later and "no violations were observed," but it shouldn't have take an emergency shutdown for Fish Tales to correct problems like 'rodent activity as evidenced by 50 fresh droppings.' Maybe the next time their ceiling collapses they'll think to close for a day and fix it.
Investigative reporter Jeff Weinsier covered the story for WPLG TV channel 10 and you can get all the details on the story at his Dirty Dining Blog.
The Inspector loves to eat, but not if Rat Shit's on the menu.
