We have been going to the Mayflower for years and have found it to be the best seafood restaurant we have been to anywhere, anytime. I say "best" as the big variable in seafood is the quality of the the initial product. The Mayflower has the best quality crabmeat, redfish, red snapper, lemon fish and flounder, and many more. The selections vary as the owner hand-selects the varieties and he only chooses what looks the best. Preparations are simple but sublime. Beyond fish per se, try the seafood salad which is crammed with jumbo lump crabmeat and large shrimp, or Eggplant Josephine. You will not be disappointed. Their Comeback salad dressing is legendary, and the recipe a closely-guarded secret. They are also famous for their coconut cream pie.
This is a typical old-style cafe, with ancient booths and black and white hex tile floor. It is full of regular locals. Just go to the bathroom before you leave home-the restrooms are upstairs, and haven't changed since the 20's. Its all part of the charm.
