The following are Webster County restaurant and food service inspections.

Restaurants are graded using a state-issued matrix that rates restaurants according to current health codes. The health department categorizes food service code violations as either critical or noncritical. Critical violations are more likely to cause food contamination or illness, while noncritical violations do not necessarily present an immediate danger.

Environmental Public Health Specialist Terral Davis, of the Webster County Health Unit, is in charge of restaurant inspections, along with the inspection of schools, gas stations and senior citizen centers.
