Very good seafood and good service. You can dine in or call a head for take out. They give you so much food that I always asked for a box to take home. A lot of times when my time is limited, I call a head and place an order. When you pick up your order, they always check the... More

I only eat fried oysters once/twice a year. I visited this restaurant seven months ago, ordered sm oyster platter.... The oysters were so dark brown, hard to bite, I left them, couldn't eat!! I decided to give them one more try last month with my good friend. I ordered the same, most of my oysters were just as before! It... More

My family and I met at the Mayflower in Danville, Virginia for a birthday celebration. There was a total of 10 family members coming from several areas. Mayflower was chosen mainly because of proximity but we were all pleasantly surprised by the fantastic food! The fried seafood was cooked to total perfection not over cooked like so many restaurants do.... More

Wait staff was excellent. Service was quick and with a full restaurant of customers was a nice surprise. Broiled scallops were very tasty and steak was a little less than the medium ordered and could of used a bit of seasoning. All in all it was a good meal and the hush puppies were the best I have had. Would... More

Mayflower can not be beated. Piping hot fried seafood, unlimited cold drinks. They never fail to deliver. My family enjoyed it, too!

Meal was excellent. Plentiful and was very hot when delivered. For seafood, prices were reasonable. Restaurant was crowded, but were seated in just a few minutes.

Went here on a recommendation. I will not go back. Service was slow. Our waitress took food off our plate and back into kitchen to be served to someone else because of a mistake on order? Need I say anything more. Food was ok. Nothing special for all the negative I saw.

Two families are dinner here and all were pleased. Most dishes are fried. Broiled salmon was good as were pan seared crab cakes. Cakes were not heavily breaded and had plenty of crab. Fried options seemed done right and not overly greasy. Great service from Amanda. Place was packed on Fri night but Sat right down.

Went on a recommendation after leaving another restaurant. We're not from the area and were in another restaurant desiring seafood and they had none, so that brought us to the Mayflower. It was a late Sunday evening. There was no line and we were immediately seated. On the way there, we did pass it, as it sits on a hill... More

We had the pleasure of dining at the Mayflower Seafood Restaurant and the food and service was excellent. All of the members in my party of 8 all agreed they enjoy the seafood variety and combinations. Great experience! Will be back!
