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

On Sunday, June 21, 2015 I met my family (there were 8 of us) at Mayflower XVI Seafood Restaurant in Durham, NC. We were to meet for dinner at 6pm to take my father-in-law and brother-in-law out for Father's Day. My husband and I arrived around half past 5 to put in a request for a table. When we walked...

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! One small bite and spat it back out, disgusting. Wife had the salad with cold steamed baby shrimp, old salad and the shrimp had no taste whatsoever and rubbery. Even the... More

Mayflower is a chain restaurant and this location in Durham has an interesting and colorful décor. Service was quite good. We had a large plate of oysters (her) and some broiled trout (Him). Most entrees are served with either fries or baked potato and coleslaw. Her oysters (14 per large plate) were quite good and my trout was just OK.... More

My wife is a seafood feak, me, not so much. She thought that the fried shrimp were just average which shocked me since they have won awards for most popular seafood in Durham. I had a hamburger which was only ok, no surprise, that ain't their stock in trade, and I knew it going in but fried shrimp are supposed... More
