Food Inspections 

The Food Safety & Sanitation Program uses a scoring system for restaurant and other food facility inspections performed in the Municipality. All food establishments, temporary food service and pool/spa facilities within the municipality inspected by municipal health inspectors are posted online.  ​


Responding to complaints and concerns is a priority for the Food Safety and Sanitation Program. Timely reporting is key for a successful investigation.

If you believe you may have become ill as a result of eating food from a public food facility such as a restaurant or from swimming at a public swimming pool, please submit a complaint online​, or call our office at 343-4200 during normal business hours, or if on the weekend and there is an emergency outbreak, you can call (800) 478-0084 to reach the State Section of Epidemiology emergency hotline.

​If you have a complaint or concern about sanitation in a food establishment in the Municipality of Anchorage or have other questions or concerns, please call our office at 343-4200 or file a concern online​​

We are located at 825 L Street on the third floor. We are open Monday - Friday from 8:30am-4:30pm and closed daily for lunch from 12:00pm-1:00pm.

If you would like to stop by the office to speak with an inspector we suggest that you call ahead to make an appointment to ensure an inspector will be available to speak with you. Inspectors are frequently conducting on-site inspections in the field and may not be immediately available in person.​
