I recently started working downtown and tried The Mayflower Cafe last week. The food was delicious and the wait staff very friendly and helpful. They have a lot of return customers and know them personally. They take time to talk with you and find out about you. The menu offers a lot of variety with daily specials. The comeback dressing is awesome! A meat, small salad, 2 veges, roll/cornbread with drink for $9.75. You don't leave hungry.

The plate lunch is the way to go! It was great and the cornbread was delicious! It came with a salad topped with their signature come back sauce.

The fried catfish was so light it floated up off the plate! And if you've never had come-back salad dressing this is the place to get it.

An old Jackson standard, the Mayflower is a favorite of old and young alike. Always full on event nights and weekends. Always has several fish specials which are delicious. A must if you've never been or are visiting and want a taste of something special.
