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.

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

We came based on TA reviews. The only plus were the fried clams. They were large and tasty. It goes down from that. The fried shrimp were a step above frozen. The cole slaw was dry cabbage. The clam chowder was not flavorful. The tarter sauce was Ken's prepackaged. Fries were fine. Service was rude and lacking. The cashier announced... More
