Really fresh tasting fried fish - tried scallops and clams and both were very good. My husband was also very happy with the white chowder. This is a casual place but the quality is good and the service is prompt.

As good as everyone tells you. If you pass up an opportunity to eat here you have done yourself a disservice. Go, eat the clams, go upstairs to the bar and have some beer. Stay awhile, watch a bunch of people order oysters and then just get some yourself.

They have 2 kitchens. The lower one serves wonderful fried seafood like clam cakes and fried clams with bellies. Upstairs you can get broiled swordfish and other seafood - all delicious.

This is a wonderfully decorated and great clam shack. The calamari was great - not rubbery and not too overfried. The full body clams were delicious and the clam cakes were wonderful. Don't waste yourself on fish and chips. Just ok. The atmosphere is great. Get a table before you order and find one by the window. Make sure if... More

This place set a new standard in fried clams for me. Definitely the best I've had. It's a little confusing...you order outside before you actually enter and then find a table. They buzz you when your food is ready, so you can pick it up. Once you figure it out, it works well. Nice view of the harbor from upstairs... More

fun place to visit (be prepared to queue in summer) ... our kids loved it and the crunchy fish and chips, calamari plate, hot dogs and clams (we tried all of these) were great. Once out of queue and order placed then service was swift, cold draft beer was lovely. Great "no frills" ambiance

The atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but very pleasant and clean however. Fish and chips and fries were among the best I've tasted. Friendly serviced and vibe right by Easton's beach.

Its actually a shack. Two story shack. You can see it as fish fast food. Its self servised but you do eat prety soon. The food its prety good with big proportions.

I've been coming to Flo's at this location since I was in high school 20 years ago. It was a special place then and it has remained so. It's grown a little, lines are longer in the summer than they used to be, but for the most part the additions of the upstairs bar and the deck are great. Every... More

I had heard great things about Flo's and have had it on my list of places to try for some time.....very disappointing. The clams were tough and rubbery. The belly portion of each was fine, but the rest was inedible. The batter was not light, as others have described it. It was very heavy and gave me indigestion. Additionally, the... More
