Maher’s Restaurant temporarily closes after inspector cites no running water

A restaurant near downtown Orlando has been temporarily closed since last week after a health inspector found that it was operating without running water.

Maher’s Restaurant, which is located at 646 W Washington Street, was forced to close its doors on Wednesday, January 18, after an inspector with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation cited four health code violations.

Among the violations were two considered high priority, including an employee failing to wash their hands before putting on gloves and working with food.

The employee applied antiseptic in place of washing their hands because there was no portable water running through the pipes. The report indicates that one of the pipes was broken and that there was no alternative supply of water.

In the days since, no additional inspections have been conducted and the restaurant has remained closed, according to state records.
