I had loved Mayflower’s whitefish but got it almost raw. It was disgusting but I brought it home for the birds. The smell from the box was sickening. Bobby needs to train his cooks to make sure the fish is done! Someone else in the...family had gotten underdone fish at another visit. This will prevent me from ordering fish for a very long time!More

This restaurant was really good. . They had special prices for seniors. Fried or broiled seafood with several sides to choose from. Our server, Chris, was excellent. Would definitely go back again if in the area. We were camping at Roan Mt State Park, about...a 30 minute drive away.More

Excellent for seafood away from the ocean. Oysters are wonderful, catfish excellent. We plan to enjoy eating here twice a month.

What a great surprise. Friends suggested Mayflower so we tried it and LOVED it. We just moved here from the NC coast, so eating seafood us important to us. I never expected to find such a place here. Great fried seafood and I was especially...pleased with the fried oysters! Outstanding quality and taste. We will go back soon.More

We went there on Jan 1, 2021, didn't think we would but Ridgewood was closed since we were in the area we did. Emily was our server and was funny, knew how to take care of a client, and was a real treat compared to...last time. The food was cooked to perfection and everything was fine until I got to the register. I'm not sure who this person was but nothing but negative she kept complaining about someone calling then hanging up she finally took my ticket didn't even take the time to ask me how was everything. I'm pretty sure she was the same person who was rude to us the last time we were there. We'll be back but I will call ahead of time to make sure that Emily is there.More

My wife and I were wanting fish today so we decided on the Mayflower Restaurant in Elizabethton. We were seated and ordered the onion appetizer it was very good. We ordered the Sunday special but were informed that the oven wasn't working so my wife...asked for the broccoli, the server asked her if she wanted cheese on it and how much extra. The sever said 75 cents she didn't want it but I said go ahead, but my wife said no thanks the server said and I quote ( I already have it written down} I found it unusual that she couldn't just take it off. When our meals came the broccoli had some kind of cheese something on it, over heated and her broccoli was stuck to the serving dish. I went to pay and told the cashier what had happened and all I wanted was a dollar or two taken off the bill but NO THE HEAD CASHIER OR WHO EVER SHE WAS WENT TO THE BACK AND OUR SERVER TOLD HER (THAT I DON'T REMEMBER SAY THAT) EVEN THOUGH MY WIFE AND I DO.. So over 75 cents and a bad review on TripAdvisor and loosing a loyal customer SHAME ON YOU I have owned and managed restaurants if I was the owner the woman who investigated what we had told us and didn't believe us over her server she would be given a written reprimand and three days off of work without payMore

We have eaten at many restaurants in Elizabethton & Johnson City and this place ranks up there with the best. It is located behind Arby's in Elizabethton, kind of out of the way, but the atmosphere, service and food were wonderful. Prices range around $10....I got the grilled chicken with baby shrimp for $10.49 and I could not finish it. The plates come heaped up with food. It is a great deal and the food was great too. My only regret is that we didn't find this place sooner.More

I took my mom here for a late mother's day outing. The food was probably one of the best I've had. Great atmosphere and the staff was super friendly...will be going back.

We chose to get takeout today & both orders of baby shrimp had been cooked ahead & slightly rewarmed as cold when I got to car to eat right in front. This is the only bad experience we have ever had in all the years...of eating at Mayflower. There were not many getting takeout & may have expected way more & cooked ahead. We have been to Mayflower 25+ times since they reopened taking church friends & family. I am not anxious to return anytime soon.More

My wife and I were there this evening being tired from the Cornoavirus scare we went anyway. There was hardly anyone there the hostess was very pleasant and our server was amazing. It didn't take long for our food which was more than enough. We...have been there a couple times before and have never been disappointed. Example of the high prices of Harbor House there 12 oz rib eye is $24.99 Mayflower is only $15.99 and the food is much better. If you haven't been there it is differently worth the drive.More
