Granite Restaurant, Centennial Hotel, Concord, NH

I am on a business trip to Concord, NH, and was looking forward to dinner at the Granite Restaurant in the Centennial Hotel based on the fine reviews posted to date.

I visited the Granite Restaurant tonight, Thurs., Sept. 24. I ordered half a dozen raw oysters (which were fine), and half a dozen fried oysters (which were not on the menu, but which should have been easily presented, as "Oysters 3 Ways" -- which included a fried oyster -- was)!

The raw oysters were delicious and well presented. My server brought cocktail sauce and horseradish to my liking.

The fried oysters were overly salty and inedible. When I sent them back to the kitchen, my server told me that the chef agreed -- they were too salty -- and that the kitchen would shuck a fresh batch and fry them to order.

The order that arrived was similarly overly salty -- I don't know if the kitchen did anything differently, but the food was still inedible.

I asked for my check, and left.

Now that I am back at my hotel and having had no dinner tonight, I am interested in hearing any and all responses.

What should I have done, and was the restaurant right in charging me for my appetizer and drinks (when I left without dinner)!
