What The Health is your #1 source for Florida Restaurant Health information!
What The Health lets you easily view Health Inspection data for Restaurants and Bar Establishments in the State of Florida. This multi-functional app allows you to quickly view Florida Health information for Restaurants near you. Not only can you view Health Inspection date for restaurants in Florida, you can get directions and share scores with friends on Facebook!
The state of Florida carries out inspections periodically and assigns "basic", "intermediate", and "high priority" violations based on their findings. Florida does not assign a single grade or score. The letter grades and scores in the main list in this application are provided for comparison purposes only. The What The Health application assigns point values to each category and adds up the total violations and subtracts the total from 100. The number of basic, intermediate, and high priority violations are visible in the report section.

Misrepresentaion in Florida
The State of Florida does NOT give a letter grade to any establishment. We have a broad open record policy. ALL establishments that do business in Florida, especially food and lodging, are required by law to make available upon request to any patron their most recent health inspection. We encourage you to read the inspection and make your own decision on whether to patronize the establishment or not.
Additionally, the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations (DBPR), who conducts the inspections, has a free app that you can download to use. Called DBPRMOBILE, it allows you to check on the license of any business as well as their inspection history.
Again, Florida does NOT give a letter grade or number grade to any business. Read their inspection history for yourself to determine if they are worth patronizing or not.
Flawed, gives "A 100" to unopened yet
Although it's very easy to understand and helpful by showing nearest food vendors first, it has a serious flaw. It gives default ratings to eateries not yet open or not yet inspected an "A 100" rating. Unless you open up the report and see it's blank, and know the place is still under construction (not open yet), you're likely to think it's perfect.
This happened to me refectory. One was a Chinese buffet with an A 100, which I went to but didn't realize later it was not inspected or reviewed in the app's database. The other case is for a place I know isn't even finished being built and open, yet.
Doesn’t seem to function as intended.
A number of the inspection dispositions that I read were not the most current for that establishment. Some - with a U rating- had been subsequently re-inspected and passed (based on the state of Florida’s dbpr website.) Also, many of the posted inspections on this app were also several months to over a year old. Not helpful. Restaurants here in FL are inspected much more frequently than that. This app is a great concept, but seems to be very much unfinished.
I also had a number of issues with the pop up ads crashing the app.
I like this app, but am giving it a “U.” Will be back in 30 Days for a re-inspection...
