Sunday, 8/24/08, visited Rodneys and we sat on the deck. The inside was busy but on the deck it was just the two of us. Ordered a shimp cocktail while we decided if we just wanted salads or dinner. The shimp Cocktail came in a small soup/salad bowl, a piece of lettuce was used to line the bottom of the bowl upon which was placed a pile of crushed ice. On top of the the crushed ice was a small plastic cup of cocktail sauce. Buried in ice were FOUR shimp. Why they were served in crushed ice in a bowl instead of hanging on a cocktail glass, I dont know why it was presented like this. The cost was 11.95. Unbelieveable. We did pull the shimp from the ice and eat them, although we should have just sent it back. We voiced our displeasure to the waitress and the hostess. The hostess wanted to know who our server was...and we thought that might get some action, but it didnt. The server, Julie I think, could care less, said there was nothing she could do, didnt get a manager, and then told us that we should watch the Discovery Channel and a program about food and what shimp cost these days.....thank you very much for that. At least, they should have either brought us a couple of more shimp, or charged us 1/2 price. VERY DISSATISFIED with the shrimp cocktail and the attiitude.\r
We also had a pecan crusted chicken salad, and a salmon salad, both of which were very good, the dressings were excellent and the presentations were nice as well. No bread was served with the salads however which we think would have made it more of a meal. 1/2 caraf of wine for 11.00 and our bill ended up 43.00, only tipped 10% as Julie wasn't very attentive during the meal. \r
We wont be eating at Rodneys again for a while.
