We enjoyed a quick dinner of lobster roll and fried clam platter after sightseeing. The food was delicious and the fries were great. Quick service, but we were there in September, after the summer rush.

This review is for Flo's "Topside", not the fried food take-out downstairs, which we don't really care for. Upstairs is a whole different story! We enjoyed delicious, perfectly cooked seafood ( swordfish, scallops plus HUGE shrimp from the raw bar). They have a really nice, fun atmosphere bar with friendly locals and an excellent bartender (Chris- very personable!) We find... More

Yesterday I had the whole belly fried clam platter at Flo's. They were lightly battered, not too greasy and the portion size was more then I could eat. I wanted an iced tea with it, but for some reason, all they had was water or alcoholic beverages. I was disappointed that the clams came with a sealed container of Ken's... More

Our family trip to Newport In August wouldn't have been complete without visiting Flo's for the first time. Warning - cash only. We were aware of that and came prepared. You order at a window, get a lobster pager, find a table either inside or out, and wait for the lobster to turn red. On this lovely evening, we sat... More

Our son and daughter in law took us to flo's while we were visiting them. Our group had clam chowder, lobster roll, fried scallops and calamari and fish sandwich. Everything was good. BEWARE this is a cash only place, and you order your food and pick it up. It is not fancy, but the food is good and compared to... More

Featured on "The Food Channel for its fried sea food, don't neglect Friday night "Until Gone!" prime rib special. You'll see all the locals here for that especially after Labor Day weekend. Comes with a "Greek" side salad, and roast potatoes or rice pilaf. A great piece of meat, big enough to take some home for the next day's luncheon... More

We got there shortly after noon on Saturday and had no wait. We selected a table upstairs and ordered lobster rolls and chowder for everyone, as well as the whole clams. Everything was very good. Really appreciated the lobster roll with mayo on the side! Only complaint was the pitcher of beer came short -did not even get 4 glasses... More

Flo's had the best oysters, clam strips, lobster rolls etc!! We pulled up (parking in back of the restaurant) and took our place on line. There are paper menues in a white mailbox and being handed out by one of the staff embers. She begins to explain how it works; make a choice and when it's your turn at the... More
