Lumberjacks, the casual restaurant with a log cabin decor and hearty dishes for breakfast through dinner at 965 W. Craig Road in North Las Vegas, was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a re-inspection on Monday, June 19.

After a 37-demerit inspection on June 1, SNHD inspectors returned on Monday and issued 30 demerits during the re-inspection and shut the restaurant down until it could clean up.

Inspectors found spoiled food, staff not properly washing their hands, food unprotected from potential contamination, sign cards unposted and more.

Since 2012, the restaurant earned a mixed bag of grades ranging from B and C grades to passes during a re-inspection.

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.
