Typical New England Fare...

It really is a clam shack with walk up window service... Nothing screams RI like a visit to Flo's. The food is very good at reasonable prices. It is a must visit when in the area. Located across the street from a beach gives it a great location and there is parking in the back of the... read more

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!

I had been here once before 4 years earlier. Went in for lunch this past Saturday. It is cash only and the decor is nothing fancy. You order at the counter and bring the food back to a wooden table. The food is very good for lunch. Fried fish and the like are solid choices here. If you want fancy,... More

We've never been to a clam shack before so when we came across Flo's Clam Shack on Food Network, we decided to put it in our must-go list for our future travel. And here we came! The set-up is you pick your table, order and pay your food and wait for your lobster to shake and shack when ready. Once... More
