Great food, on the beach

Flo's really is a clam shack right across the street from the beach. People walked over in their swim suits and flip flops. Great seafood platters. I had a lobster roll and my sister had the whole belly clams. Fun atmosphere.

How does a clam shack run out of clams? That's what happened when we visited there recently. My husband wanted fried clams and ended up settling for chowder and a hot dog-not the same! I had baked scallops which were delicious.

Ate at Flos during a trip with my family in April and must say enjoyed every bite of Flos food. IF you want the real New England fare this is the place for sure. A no frills simple seafood restaurant /bar that has everything New England on its menu. Lobster roll platter a must try! Clam strips which is there... More

Nice, fresh food. If you're eating inside, order upstairs in front of the bar and not at the outdoor walk up window. Send your companion to get a seat while you order.

Every year I get to visit and make this a definite stop. Clam cakes are to die for and everything is really good. Love the casual atmosphere and always get a table on the 2nd floor decking. Can't wait to go again next year! Excellent bang for your buck. Get ready to be really, really full!

Quick service, 8pm. Husband got lobster roll sandwich with fries and slaw. He said it was decent, but nothing special. I got a crab cake which they warned me was frozen. I would pass on this.

Picture this. A month-long, cross-country and back road trip. The last night. A massive storm. Then, after checking in around the corner, the realization that clam cakes were right there. We ordered a fisherman platter, a Greek salad, and two beers. We sat facing the water. I felt exceedingly, excessively lucky.

Flo's is the typical clam shack - easy going - window ordering and pick up - but good food and real seafood treasures. Try the chowder, fish and chips or greek salad - all delicious and reasonable prices. Good view of the bay - can't go wrong for a summer lunch!

We went to Flo's twice during a stay in Newport, once with our daughter and another time just for a carryout. The staff was patient with us while we tried to figure out what to order at the counter (it's a bit confusing). Nice view from upstairs, and we all enjoyed our meals. My daughter had a snow crab legs... More

We kept hearing great reviews about this restaurant so after a disappointing experience last year we decided to give it another try. We were disappointed with the chowders (tried both kinds) last year, this year we ordered the lobster roll. It was fine, nothing spectacular about it compared to the other restaurants...no seasoning just mayo on the side. The fries... More
