Great food but not very friendly at the counter

I was there the second day of the season, and the food was very good. The Greek salad was so huge, I could have eaten it three different meals. The lady at the front counter was busy but unfortunately snappy with me when I was confused as to the options for numbers of clam rolls. Nonetheless... read more

Ever hopeful we stopped on our way home to Massachusetts after a lacrosse game at St. George's, for our first fried clams of the season. We ordered the 1/2 pint of fried clams with bellies - the 3-4 belly clams were delicious. The rest of the order was strips or fried batter. Very disappointing $23, not well spent.

Went there on 5/1/15 w/3 others. 2 of us had the fried clam plate, the other 2 had scallops. The clams were overcooked & the bellies were so tough we thought we were chewing on rubber bands. The scallops were not bad but very greasy. The 2 of us w/clams could not eat out meals. What a waste of money.... More

Decided to stop here for lunch after reading the reviews and boy...we weren't disappointed. We had the fried clams platter and it was like eating a slice of heaven. The food was just delicious. The hospitality shown to us by the staff was what we have grown to love about the New England area. I will be back soon.

We ate here twice. The first time we had the famous Lobster roll. It was so fresh and great. We went back for the Prime Rib night and were not disappointed. It was the best Prime Rib! You order the

We arrived there around 8 pm. We asked were we could sit and were told upstairs or downstairs it didn't matter. We said we would sit upstairs and the girl told us someone would be right with us. No one ever came. We asked the bartender about the waitress and were told there was not one, that we had to... More

Cute place, amazing food, great views. If you want an even better view, sit on the second floor. And don't leave without trying the clam cakes...they are to die for. The lobster roll melts in your mouth.

Flo's has survived hurricanes, floods and just about everything that nature could throw at it. But one thing has been constant throughout the years, a whole lot of great seafood. Flo's calls itself a clam shack and it is indeed a shack. Just a bunch of rooms sort of stuck together with all kinds of nautical things hanging around. You... More

My kids and I spent a little time in Newport during our April 2015 vacation. While there are a lot of great options for dinner in Neport, Flo's looked perfect for us. The casual atmosphere and views of the water were great. The fish and chips cannot be beat! This is now our go-to eatery in Newport. Thanks Flo's!
