A popular Dunwoody restaurant failed its Wednesday inspection after flies were found among various other issues.
Joey D's Oak Room, located at 1015 Crown Pointe Parkway near Perimeter Mall, received a 58, according to the inspector’s report. Among other things, the inspection noted finding food stored too long; residue built up on a soda nozzle; and “condensation from (a) fan dripping directly onto uncovered raw salmon located in the walk-in cooler.”
Amber Stewart, marketing director, said in an interview Thursday that in the restaurant’s nearly 28 years in business, health has always been a top concern. She said Joey D’s was already prepared to receive an “A” on the follow-up inspection.
Restaurants are typically rechecked within 10 days.
