Locals don't eat there, go down the road to Anthonys Seafood, you are not paying for the view there but the food.

If you're looking for a place for lunch before or after the beach, Flo's is perfect. We stopped on our way and liked it. Although there are definitely better places for this kind of seafood, we enjoyed our lunch. The lobster roll was good and so were the clams. We ate upstairs which was sort of half inside half outside... More

Great casual restaurant bar. Worth the wait in line if there is one. Amazing lobster roll. Go upstairs and sit and eat at bar - two best bartenders in all of Newport will take care of you. Worth the walk or bike ride or car ride from Newport.

My husband and I spent a week in Newport. We heard about Flo's so decided to check it out. When we arrived the place was really busy, so we decided to head upstairs. We shared crab legs and coconut shrimp. The food was great as well as the service from Lisa! We returned again for all you can get crab... More

We tried to eat here during one of our recent trips, but... We waited about 20-mins in line only to find out fried food is ordered in the line we were in, and boiled and baked upstairs "at the bar". A sign warned us to secure a table first, before ordering so you are sure to have a place to... More

For many years my business partner and I visit the Newport Boat show. We never miss this place. In fact we usually do two nights here. Simple ,fantastic , seafood. No frills cooked perfectly. Fantastic un stuffy atmosphere. One problem, we never can figure out which half is better, upstairs or down. Come hungry, leave feeling like a whale... Superb...

Flo's Clam Shack was a favorite of ours for decades. Unfortunately their once superb Fried Clams, Fries and Rhode Island Clam Chowder have given way to overpriced slop. We have tried to convince ourselves that it must have just been an off night but finally we have come to terms that the Flo's of the past glories and great meals... More
