The Outback aka The Bar Ordered Closed

MAYVILLE, N.Y.: - The Outback also known as “The Bar” located at 114 Jones and Gifford Ave. in the City of Jamestown has been ordered to close and cease all food and beverage service operations immediately.  This order, served by the Environmental Health Division of the County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), was necessitated by the failure of the operator, Mr. Edward Bowles, to maintain a valid permit to operate a “Food Service Establishment.” 

This action became necessary pursuant to New York State Sanitary Code Part 14 (Food Service Establishments), 10 NYCRR 14-1.194 (a).   The code defines food as “any edible substance, ice, beverage or ingredient used or intended for use or for sale in whole or in part for human consumption.”  Therefore, bar operations are also subject to regulation under New York State Food Code. 

As the County Health Official, Christine Schuyler has the authority to invoke the New York State Sanitary Code. 

“This is an unfortunate situation but despite our efforts to work with The Outback/The Bar, minimum requirements to maintain a valid permit to operate a food service establishment have not been met,” said Schuyler.

For more information on the New York State Sanitary Code for Food Service Establishments, please visit or call DHHS’ Environmental Health Unit at 753-4481.
