Just called Flo's and got recording saying they're closed for the season, a little earlier than it said on their website. Sorry to not get there one more time for 2016! 😔 Have to wait until next March.....

All you can eat crab legs are a great deal. Check or call them to find out the special day. Views of the ocean. Cheap beers.

My wife and I recently visited Newport for our 40th anniversary (2nd honeymoon). In researching the trip, Flo's came up as the place to get great fried clams. They did not disappoint! My wife got the fried clams and I got the fried seafood platter. Both were delicious, although I think my eyes were bigger than my stomach. We tried... More

If you've never been to a clam shack, give Flo's a try--it's the real thing. Fancy is prohibited--you order, you pick up, you grab a table, and you love the food, and that's an order. Two floors (upper has a nice view), not much parking,I had whole belly fried clams, and while I have had better (I've been around these... More

Seriously I've never been as full as I was when I left Flos that lunchtime. We had a small chowder each (10/10) and then shared the Fishermans platter. Lordy lord. If you go just have one dish each. You've been warned.

There were so many good reviews on the restaurant menu that I expected good things from this place. It also ranked highly on TA. Unfortunately the food was not up to a high standard. My wife and I both ordered a cup of creamy clam chowder - there was very little flavor, and my wife swore she saw a clam,... More

We had an evening meal here. My wife had fish and chips and I had fried clam strips. All food is cooked to order and is obviously very fresh

We have been tasting around New England for the past few weeks looking for the best whole belly fried clams and found them here. To enjoy them you need to get here before they close for the season at Thanksgiving. They are only open now from Wednesday - Sunday now. Great beach shack atmosphere right across the street from the... More

Am I dreaming? The reality is better than even the most marvelous dream ! Everything you ever hope, everything you ever remembered about how delicious, succulent, fresh and tasty seafood could be. I haven't been in New England for years, and thought that the passage of time might have made the memory of fresh seafood be greater than reality. Everything... More
