Restaurant Shenanigans

Many restaurants will deceive their customers in order to turn a profit. I dined at The Chelsea, a semi-upscale restaurant in New Bern, NC. I ordered the sea scallops, only to get served Skate. I complained, refused to pay for my or my wife's order, and asked to speak to the chef and manager. The manager complied, but the chef hid in his kitchen. While leaving, I announced, "Anyone else who ordered the scallops, you got Skate, not what you paid for".

Anyone else have an experience where a restaurant deliberately ripped you off?
