Braddah’s Island Style at 4632 S. Maryland Pkwy. was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a routine inspection on Tuesday, March 22. Health inspectors found two imminent health hazards and gave the restaurant 48 demerits, eight more than SNHD needed to shut down the restaurant.
SNHD found that the restaurant had no hot or potable water and a pest infestation, calling for the immediate closure. Spoiled food, food unprotected from potential contamination, an inadequate number of hand washing facilities, ineffective pest control measures, inaccurate thermometers, unposted grade cards and more were among the violations.
In 2014 and 2015, the restaurant earned B grades from the health department, followed by upgrades to an A grade days later.
The health district conducts unannounced inspections at least once a year. Inspections are posted online about five days after the inspection. The Southern Nevada Health District routinely shuts down restaurants that receive more than 40 demerits. Restaurants have the option of requesting a re-inspection before the next scheduled inspection.
