Flo's was highly recommended--looked forward to a real treat there. Very disappointed. The clams were tough and over-fried, the potatoes soggy, the clear chowder seemed to be nothing but the water the potatoes were cooked in and one clam cut 5 or 6 pieces. Maybe a Sunday night is not a good test. Also the place was almost empty.

Flo's is still the best local haunt for clam cakes and fried clams and stuffies. All the food here is perfect , top notch fresh, no frills but fantastic . We live just in Portsmouth and hit this place a few times a month. It's right on the ocean. Long lines sometimes , but just enjoy the view and dream... More

We sat upstairs overlooking the beach and ocean across the street. The food was very good. The chowdah was piping hot and hearty. The lobster rolls were excellent and made to dress yourself so as not to be sogged in mayo. The folks were nice and the place is an institution and filled with nicnacs.

We had read a lot of great reviews about Flo's, so we decided to stop in for lunch when we were in Newport. I had a lobster roll that was really good; the serving of lobster was very generous, tasted fresh, and it came with a wedge of fresh lemon and mayo so you could customize it to your own... More

This used to be the best place for fried clams and clam fritters, but no more. We ordered those and a lobster roll and got (for $48.50 cash), a lobster roll made of previously frozen lobster meat, extremely greasy fried clams that obviously were somewhat dried out from being in the refer too long, and fritters that were okay! We... More

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
