The Anne Arundel County Department of Health briefly closed Ruby Tuesdays at 7900 Ritchie Highway because of a sewage backup.
It was closed, then reopened Dec. 17.
Inspectors checked 140 restaurants and other food service facilities in the county during the last two weeks of December and cited 16 for food safety violations.
Ruby Tuesdays was the only place where multiple violations were noted, health officials said.
In addition to the sewage disposal problem, inspectors found that food was not being held at the proper temperature.
