A Huge platter of fried clams, calamari, shrimp and scallops accompanied by a delicious lobster roll. This Newport landmark lives up to all the acclaim. Very low brow, but sooooo good!!!

My husband paid under $7 for a beer, cup of chowder, and clam cakes. He can eat and he was full by the end. I got the lobster roll without the roll and really enjoyed it. Scallops also great. We don't get seafood at such good prices in Ohio so we let our bellies stock up. Then walked it off... More

It was a cold rainy day in the off season but Flo's offers rustic charm and hot chowder to chase the chill. The service is friendly and they made a gluten free lobster roll on iceberg lettuce for me. Perfectly cooked lobster with mayo on the side! Nothing else was gluten free but my mother loved the chowder. Worth the... More

Not fancy. Tasty seafood reasonably priced. I particularly like the raw bar. Fried whole belly clams are delicious. Soups are great too. Nice view of East Beach. Not a lot of parking but I've never had a problem.

A cold beer on a hot night paired with some beachy food siting on the deck watching the waves roll in across the street. The whole funny, ramshackle place says "carefree, sand-between-the-toes vacation."

I had a lobster roll which was just lobster with a packet of mayo on the side. Not the way lobster rolls are usually done in ri. Had to go to the bar to,get a drink. No big deal, wouldn't go back.

Heard of Flo's through Aerial America and trip advisor so we had to make it a priority when visiting New England area. I liked the regular clam strips better over the full belly fried clams. But I had to try them. The Fisherman's platter was huge. Could have fed two or three people. But too much fried food. And calamari... More
