Server touching shrimp, dirty utensils lead to low score at River Walk seafood restaurant

Landry's Seafood House gets score of 71

By Dillon Collier - Investigative Reporter

SAN ANTONIO - A seafood restaurant along the city's River Walk received a low health score last month after a serve was seen touching shrimp about to be served with their bare hands.

The shrimp was later discarded, according to city health records.

Landry's Seafood House, in the 500 block of N. Presa St., was also cited for having expired sauce in a walk-in cooler and for having several employees working without wearing beard guards.

The restaurant was ordered to go through a reinspection.

You can read the full report by searching the Metro Health website.

The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District's scoring of food establishments is based on a 100-point demerit system.

The inspection reports, which establishments are required to post in public view, feature a number score at the top and bottom of the front page. A separate placard with the number score and a letter grade (example: 100/A) is also available upon request from the food establishment. Posting the placard is voluntary.
