Two Wilmington restaurants earned low scores from health inspectors, and one got back on track during a second inspection. This week's low performer is the McDonald's at the corner of Carolina Beach Road and Shipyard Boulevard, where workers need to make sure to wash their hands when they change job tasks and the manager needs to wear a hair restraint when working on the line. Points off for soiled multi-use containers, containers stacked wet and the hot water in the hand sink was turned off. A two-point bonus for workers passing a food safety course can't overcome 13 violations and a score of 81.5. Portside Diner on Burnett Boulevard scored an 82.5 back in July. A Halloween inspection wasn't much better. Five points off for foods at the wrong temperature. All fruits and vegetables need to be washed with potable water before preparation. And employees need to wash their hands when they change job tasks. Portside Diner scores 82.5. Finally a regrade for Echo Farms Golf & Country Club. Last time out it scored an 82.5. This time just one point off for some cleaning needed. A big improvement for Echo Farms to 99. The Kitchen Cops found four New Hanover County restaurants deserving of high performer status this week. The highest score belongs Chris' Cosmic Kitchen at 420 Eastwood Road. A Halloween visit was anything but scary. A perfect 100 plus two points for workers passing a food safety course for a total of 102. Watermark Marina at 4114 River Road in Wilmington lost a half-point for drinks stored on the floor of the walk-in cooler. The two-point bonus means a score of 101.5. A little maintenance is needed at the Islander Kwik Mart at 111 Carl Winner Street in Carolina Beach. But still a perfect 100. And a low performer from this summer is now a high performer. South Beach Grill at Wrightsville Beach needs to do some cleaning and fix or replace some cutting boards. But those low performer days are a thing of the past with a new score of 100.
