Restaurant Inspections, Bay Breeze Seafood

Ron Cochran, general manager of Bay Breeze Seafood in Mableton, was surprised to learn that Cobb County still has his restaurant listed with an inspection score of 87.

They did earn the B, but that was way back in November. In April, Bay Breeze asked Cobb and Douglas Public Health to re-inspect the facility at 1140 Veterans Memorial Parkway, and they were given a grade of 100, Cochran said.

Because the updated score is not posted on the department’s website at, potential customers won’t know the restaurant now has a perfect health score.

“It’s a shame because we worked real hard to get our score up to 100,” Cochran said.

Cobb is about six months behind in posting current inspection scores, but officials said this week a new system is on its way to fix that problem.

“We know our system is a little antiquated,” said Communications Director Nadine Walley, of Cobb and Douglas Public Health. “We’re working on updating our website so we can post them directly online. It’s not going to happen overnight, but it’s coming.”

The new system has been in the works since April and will be managed by a private contractor, Walley said. It will allow inspectors in the field to file their reports immediately so that both the score and report can be viewed online.

Fulton, DeKalb and Gwinnett counties, as well as some of the other surrounding counties, already have this type system in place.

While Cobb is working on these changes, customers can still view the county’s latest restaurant inspection scores the old-fashioned way. Every food service establishment is required to post its latest score where it can be easily seen by customers at the facility.
