There's no real seafood in Roanoke Rapids, NC, but Mayflower is definitely not the place for a seafood lover to go. The fish is fried to a crisp and curled up to nothing. Shrimp are frozen fried things you could buy at costco. French fries are great! Service was decent, except at the register when they ask your opinion but don't really want it :-) The big guy asked me how I liked my meal. He looked like a manager so I told him the truth. He asked me if I had mentioned it to my waitress. I said yes, then he went looking for her. He talked to her a minute and came back and said, "Sir, next time tell your waitress to fix it while you're at the table..." Now I'm mad. I think he thought I was trying to get that $6.95 lunch plate for free. He was wrong. I was on company money and buying for everyone. I was just trying to help the guy out by telling him the flounder was disappointing. I can afford his lunch.
Most of the locals will tell you to avoid this restaurant. If you are really in the mood for seafood, get salmon at one of the steakhouses. This is not a seafood town and they don't have enough business to import the good stuff. This was over a year
