My out-of-town guests were disappointed in what they ordered at Flo's ... not so much Flo's problem, just too much breading for their taste. The chowda is OK, certainly not the best on the island. There are better dining options nearby.

If you feeling like indulging in a totally unhealthy fried meal, flo's is the place to go. Amazing fried clams, fish and chips, etc. And a nice raw bar upstairs. A little kitschy on the decor, but I guess that's part of the charm. Just be warned that in the summer the line can get loooong.

We live on the NH seacoast, so we are no strangers to fresh seafood. The clams casino are to die for. Lisa shucks the clams right in front of you when preparing them. Lisa the bartender has got to be the friendlyist in the business. Although we only get there once or twice a year she remembers us, and being in the hospitality industry this is very impressive. This place is definatly worth the 2 hour drive for us, weather raw, fried, baked or broiled we have never had a bad meal or service here. See you in the spring--if we can hold out that long!

Loved the clam cakes (I can't get them in the south). We had lunch there last week. Loved the light up lobsters when your order is ready. Little bit on the expensive side. I should have ordered clam cakes and a side of a protein instead of ordering the fish and chips. It was too much food for me. My friend had a burger which looked a little on the small side.

We went on Friday night. They have a prime rib special on Friday after 5pm. Even though going to a clam shack for prime rib may sound like a bad idea, this turned out really well. The portions were huge, the prime rib was tender and well cooked, and the fried potatoes and salad tasted good to me. The staff was pleasant, patient and helpful to us out-of-towners. We enjoyed as much as we wanted to eat, and brought the rest home.

A great experience in a unique place.
