Really delicious fried sea food. This place offers a great menu of food items which are fried or boiled. Shrimp, flounder, trout, oyster, and more. Be aware that even though you can find steak or chicken in its menu, the specialty of this restaurant is fried or boiled seafood. If it is what you are looking for, go ahead, if not I highly recommend go other place. My rate is based on what I ate and my experience. I like the food and it looks good but, I will suggest more like because it feel dark inside. I will give you a five star but, I think it is time to redecorate the place. Modernist will be great without loosing the essence.

Great food, great service. The food was a bit more pricey but with inflation that it to be expected. I have no complaints and recommend this place for seafood in all of Durham!

I really enjoyed going here. Service was friendly. Our server Sam and the rest of the staff were a delight. They serve primarily seafood. I had a hamburger and fries. They do serve coffee. My recall is they are a Coke establishment; however, I had a water and lemon.

The oysters were good. Everything else was below average.

What sort of fish only appears at night? A star fish! Well in this case, the fish was so good that many stars are coming out. Five stars! In every category! plus I got to speak Indonesian with the staff. The food: Delicious! The tea: Delicious! I definitely like this restaurant.

Food was delicious but place could use a makeover. Staff seems to be overwhelmed but they get alot of business so that is good. Parking isn't good but it's still a nice spot for a quiet dinner.

I stopped going to Mayflower years ago and thought I'd give it one more try. .The food is still just okay and the portion have gotten much smaller...my appetite has not increased so I shouldn't have been able to eat a 3 combination plate in one sitting...guess I'm out for another few years...Just not worth my money!

My spouse really likes this place, me ahhh it's ok. I had my food broiled and they put it on a paper plate. So needless to says it soaked thru the plate and box. It was also bland. I ordered the oyster soup 😶😬. I was beyond upset. It tasted like hot watered down milk and it came with 2 oysters...that's it, nothing else. I was not expecting that at all. BUT the place gets packed at times SO other people do enjoy the food.

The food is always amazing! I absolutely love their broiled seafood. We tried the blooming onion and it was perfect. My mom and I stop in any time we are in Durham. Service is very prompt.

Service was a little slow, but it was a busy Friday crowd so I can forgive that. Large fried catfish had three medium size pieces. Seems serving sizes are getting smaller and prices are getting higher. Don't know that I will be back.

One of my fave places, staff great, always pleasant, always greet you, love Terry & Linda esp. Good people with good food always gives me reason to return. Broiled catfish & scallops are my fave; didn't like the new French dressing though

I give this place 3 stars, only because of the service and the hushpuppies. The food was hot 🔥, but tasteless. Even the tarter sauce was tasteless. The cold slaw was chopped up too fine and was also tasteless. My tea 🍵 tasted weird with a strange after taste, so I ordered a soda instead. It wasn't the best, but it was better than the tea. I got the shrimp and baked potato and my friends got the catfish and fried okra, also No flavor 😒 😐 😑 whatsoever. Food was very disappointing, but the service was excellent.

Mayflower is the place that I go to every Mother's Day, Father's Day, mom's birthday and dad's birthday! I enjoy the platter with the popcorn shrimp, oysters and tilapia! In addition to this, I love the scallops, trout, clam strips with the baked potato, okra and slaw. I had the seafood pasta and their daily special on occasion. Everything is delicious! I will be back soon and I know that at the very latest, it will be for Mother's Day!
