CLAMCAKES!

So many reviews, all that's needed to be said about parking (good luck), ordering, waiting, food, theme of the place, etc. has been said. I've been going here for years and it NEVER disappoints. Yeah, it can be too crowded and sometimes impossible to get a seat, but you can always get your food to... read more

You want chowda, lobsta salad roll, friend clam roll in a hot dog bun, "stuffies" with chorico and more? This is the place. Walk up to the order window and wait for your food to be cooked, then take it into the VERY rustic dining room or outside to a picnic table, all across the street from the ocean with... More

This is a great place to have some fresh seafood. You will place your order in the entrance area and seated upstairs for some drinks while waiting for your order. They called it a Shack but its much nicer and feel like in a Tahitian place. We ordered the famous Lobster roll , fried Calamari, Fish and chips. They are... More

This place is wicked awesome. Been here for over 75 years. Flo's famous fried whole clams was delicious. But, would have preferred home made tartar sauce. The white clam chowder was some of the best I ever had, as were the French fries. So glad we stopped here.

We read TripAdvisor reviews on this little seaside dive before we got to Middletown. Flo's lived up to the hype, for sure!! Great relaxed atmosphere. My husband and I split Flo's Fisherman Platter and were so happy we did!! It was piled high with super fresh seafood. Loved it all. The scallops were the most tender we've ever had. The... More

We love eating at Flo's! The food is always yummy and we do try and go during a slower time. In between traditional feeding times.. Say 2-2:30. Parking can be tricky but worth the hassle. We often stay at the Comfort Inn next door and walk over. I highly recommend Flo's! We pretty much always get the Fish & Chips... More

Went o Flo's on Thursday. All you can eat Crab Legs for $18.95. It was out of this world. Its a little hoe in the wall but the food is excellent. Friday nights are Prime rib night.

I had wanted to stop here for as I as can remember and finally did. I got a take-out order of clams as I needed to eat on the fly and they were really good. The ocean view and atmosphere of the place and my first impression of the food will hopefully bring me back in 2016.
