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

This was one of our favorite stops in Newport. Very affordable fresh seafood. It is directly across the street from the beach. Highly recommended if you are looking for fresh seafood at a reasonable price. Fisherman's platter was very good along with lobster roll and clam chowder.

Most delicious, crispy, mountain of fried clams ever! And right next door to Newport Beach and Hotel where we usually stay. After driving hours to RI, you round the corner and when you see the sign for Flo's, you have arrived.

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."
