It's all in what you're looking for sometimes. This particular day, I was looking for the old style fried baby shrimp plate with french fries and hush puppies. In my opinion, that's what these guys do! I don't even know what their other dishes are like because I only go for that good ole staple. It's like comfort seafood and they did it well.

Great food! Service was very good. And the atmosphere is so nice and relaxing. We went June 18, 2023. We had an awesome time!

Note that picture is after I already ate part of it. The portions are larger than shown.
The food was heartbreakingly good. The hushpuppies were to die for and the bacon cheese fries appetizer looked like a delicious piece of art. My shrimp and tilapia were also excellent. Beware as everything looks good and the portions are sizable.
I will most certainly be back!

We wanted seafood and this one came up while doing a search for restaurants near us. We had eaten at a different Mayflower loaion years ago so we figured this would do. Food was decent but there was nothing to distinguish it. Restaurant was also fairly empty which isn't a good sign either.

Ordered the Captain Smith’s Combo. Everything was amazing, from the crab stuffing, fish, and scallops, except the shrimp, i felt like the shrimps were just batter with oil. More towards taking like soaked oil. But everything else that had meat was very good!

Our party of 4 was in town for the weekend and searched for a local seafood place. The menu looked great and the prices looked reasonable. The service, food and portions were exceptional. I could tell they take pride, the presentation, taste and quality of the food went far beyond many other restaurants. Highly recommended.

This is what a seafood restaurant should be. Friendly service, nice atmosphere and so much food, it's falling off the plate

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.
