Rita Mae's Diner in Manchester, you really let me down!
I went today for the "Fresh Fish on Friday" It is the only day of the week you can get fish, and I was dying for some good fried scallops and clams... well, I was in for a huge letdown, or should I say small one? I ordered the scallops and whole clams for $16.99, what I got was 5 HALF pieces of scallops, and 9 whole clams on a huge bed of onion rings. Add to that the server gave me blue cheese dressing instead of tarter sauce... Clams and blue cheese, NOT a pleasant taste I assure you. What a shame, last time I went it was fabulous, this time I felt like I was shortchanged. $17 for 2.5 scallops chopped in half and 9 tiny clams? NO way I would order this again. Shame really... last time I went i loved it.
On the plus side, the Ornion rings are great, just not worth $17 a plateful.
Well, I would imagine that even the best diners have a bad day. I do agree that 2.5 scallops & 9 clams are not worth $17.00, however, you really should have said something to the owner/cook/waitress, as I know they would have rectified the situation. The owner is on-hand, working in the diner nearly everyday, and would appreciate your input. Try giving Rita Mae's another chance, they do have the BEST burgers in New England! Happy Holidays!
