Inspection finds dead mice at Braddock Hills golf club

Allegheny County health inspectors found mouse droppings on croutons and dead mice on the floor after a complaint prompted them to inspect the Restaurant at Grand View Golf Club, records show.

The inspection, done Monday, turned up multiple other violations, including a walk-in cooler with temperatures too high to safely store food, according to the report. The same violation was noted during a routine inspection in late June. The issue was corrected before a re-inspection four days later.

Inspectors said they found a bag of hot dog buns chewed through, mouse droppings on croutons and other food shelves, and three dead mice on sticky traps in a food storage area.

The report called the mice a repeat violation, and records from 2018 showed an inspection found a live mouse stuck to a sticky trap in the same food storage area. The restaurant passed a re-inspection weeks later.

The latest inspection also noted a lack of food-protection manager on duty and a broken door on the walk-in cooler.

A restaurant manager could not immediately be reached for comment.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
