You can now see health inspection reports for all Minneapolis eateries

The city rolled out the tool to increase transparency of city data.

Health inspection reports for Minneapolis restaurants are now available to the public online, the city announced Thursday.

Minneapolis has become the first city in the state to launch a food inspection lookup tool, which allows anyone to search for specific establishments or examine broader data from the past three years.

Establishments include bakeries, bars, coffee shops, food trucks, grocery stores and restaurants.

Violations of both Minneapolis and Minnesota regulations are included. The city stated the move would increase transparency and availability of city data.

Health inspections are performed once every 12 to 24 months. Establishments start off the inspection with a score of 100 points. Violations such as failure to cook food correctly and failure of employees to wash hands properly result in a reduction of four points.

Violations including failure to have hand soap or a thermometer result in a deduction of two points. Dirty floors or broken equipment are counted as a violation but do not result in point deductions.

Restaurants with a score of 91 or lower will be given a timeframe in which to resolve any issues and require a follow-up inspection. 

You can find the lookup tool here.
