FORT WALTON BEACH — A restaurant on Eglin Parkway was closed Nov. 29 after an inspector found raw sewage “bubbling up from underneath asphalt” behind the building.
Slick Micks Deli & Grille reopened the next day after passing a follow-up inspection by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
According to the original emergency closure report, the inspector found two basic violations, one intermediate violation and two high-priority violations, including the raw sewage.
The sewage problem was caused by the corrosion of an underground sewage line connecting the restaurant to the municipal sewage system, the report said.
Restaurant personnel were observed walking back and forth through the bubbling sewage.
The other high priority violation was cream cheese being stored at too high of a temperature. The food service manager also lacked proof of certification, which was flagged as an intermediate problem.
When the inspector returned the next day, only one basic violation remained.
