I have visited many Mayflower Seafood Restaurants across NC, and there have been some that I would never return to. However, when I go to Duke, and am there mid-day to afternoon, then I normally stop by this Mayflower to eat. It's not the best one that I've been to, but it is definitely one that I re-visit.

This is a hometown favorite. We travelled back for the weekend and brought some friends along who were not from the area.This was their first time at Mayflower. It was a Friday, so the place was full but not yet to capacity since we came at around 5:30. We were seated quickly and the server came right away. She was... More

Have eaten here twice in the same week. I don't usually frequent seafood restaurants, as the extent of my oceanic cuisine typically involves something that is filleted, and nothing more. On both occasions, I had the fried flounder fillet sandwiches with a side of fries. Portions are generous and not too costly. Apps such as the loaded cheese fries and... More

Their fried seafood usually comes out overcooked but if you ask to have it more golden brown, it is really good. Their broiled dishes are very good. Service is good, prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly. Good, solid seafood restaurant.

Chain that offers a selection of seafood with salad and baked potato or fries in generous portions. Large take-out business. The location of this particular restaurant is off a main artery's side street in a building where the adjoining businesses have vacated. You can park on either side and walk up. There are TVs on for viewing inside.

There was a time decades ago when this was a good seafood restaurant and had low prices. It seemed unusual then for it to be managed by Asians, but that seemed to not matter at all. The salmon I ordered this time was not tender, but tasted like it had been defrosted too quickly. Others at my table complained that... More

My wife, Mother-In-Law, and I have dined at Mayflower Xvi Seafood Restaurant in Durham three times in the last couple of weeks and have thoroughly enjoyed it. We like to think of it as the "less expensive alternative to Red Lobster." Every time we've been we were seated quickly, our beverages were served equally fast, and our food order taken... More

Food was very average. I had the mayflower plater and the "scallops" were imitation, everything tasted like it was previously frozen. And the deviled crab.... Omg it was gross!
