Clearwater Cove Marina, 2029 Baron Dekalb Road Camden- 78-B

  • Inspectors saw the kitchen staff handling ready to eat foods with their bare hands, the food wasn’t being held in the right temperatures- which can be very dangerous- and the door in the back wasn’t closing all the way, which we know can be a perfect entrance point for pests.
