Fayette County Health Department shuts down Riptides on the River

FAYETTE COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A Lexington restaurant has been shut down because of what health inspectors say they found inside.

The Fayette County Health Department says Riptides on the River on Old Richmond Road, received a score of fifty percent on its inspection Saturday.

The score of fifty meant that Riptides had to be closed immediately.

Health inspectors say they found the restaurant did not have hot water, some raw food was kept at unsafe temperatures and some of the kitchen and bar equipment wasn't clean.

The health department says they're working with the restaurant to fix the problems.

The health department has to inspect it again before it can reopen.
