A few weeks after a health inspector found “hundreds of fruit flies” in the kitchen at Golden Corral, the Shiloh restaurant looks clean and pest-free, county health officials say.
The St. Clair County Health Department returned to the buffet July 11 for a second look at the restaurant, located at 3360 Green Mount Crossing Drive.
This time the inspector didn’t see fruit flies or any other rodents, according to St. Clair County Health Department documents obtained by the BND through a Freedom of Information Act request.
The kitchen, which was described as filthy earlier this month, also appeared to be clean, the health inspector wrote in the July 11 report.

“The facility as clean at the time of the recheck,” the health inspector wrote. “Walls, floors and equipment had been cleaned and in satisfactory condition.”
The same health inspector instructed the restaurant to clean up nightly. Another follow-up inspection of the restaurant is forthcoming, according to the report.
This month’s inspections came after a Swansea mother of two complained about the buffet on Facebook. Kathleen Montgomery said three cockroaches were crawling on the buffet near the steak earlier this month. Pest Control inspected the restaurant a few days later and found no signs of cockroaches or other rodents.
