The BEST fried clam strips ever! Crispy with NO oil dripping from them (nor on the paper container they’re served in). Flo’s is 5 minutes from Newport harbor with a beautiful view of the water. It’s a no brainer: go to Flo’s and then take...a walk along the shore, inhaling the healthy air and appreciating the view. The wait staff are very friendly young college students.More

Flo's was so good! It felt local and fun! The food was great, and the place was special! I am glad we went there!

We ordered the Crispy Fish and Fries with Cole Slaw. The fish was not crispy at all. The fries were wimpy and the Cole Slaw had too much vinegar. We were very disappointed.

My family loved this restaurant. Eye candy inside. We sat outside. (It’s seat yourself.). You have to order & pick your food up at the front counter. (No paying a tip for a waitress.). We tried Clam cakes. I had Flo’s largest variety platter for...$32 or so. Melt kn your mouth food. Best calamari ever.More

Awesome seafood with a great ocean view from the upper deck! Sea scallops were tender and juicy and the haddock was just as good.

I read an article that said Flo's doesn't always have clams, but I didn't believe it. How can a place called Flo's Clam Shack not have clams in the middle of summer during tourist season? So I called them up and sure enough, they didn't...have clams, neither clam strips nor whole belly clams. I had heard so much about this place that I had to try it, so I ordered fish and chips. The fish had so much batter that I could barely taste the fish. It was overcooked too, as the batter was dark brown and hard. We also ordered a salad that they forgot to pack so we had to call back to get it credited back on our credit card. Quite disappointing.More

Pretty good for a causal bite. I had the fish sandwich, which was very good. Crab sandwich was ok as was the fried oysters.

The clam cakes were very doughy and huge. There wasn't much clam. The clam strips were really good. The burger and fries were just ok

I'd heard much about Flo's and had been hoping to visit and we finally did. I spent $180 for there today. The staff was fine but we were disappointed in the food. Having cold butter on a lobster roll is very strange. The lobster tasted...good but incongruous with cold butter. Things went off the rails with the whole belly fried clams. They were very chewy and over cooked, and the bread crumb coating tasted rather bitter. The tartar sauce was from Ken's of Ken's Steak House. It is terribly vinegary and not what you would expect from a classic place like Flo's. The clam chowder was quite good. I am sorry to have to write this but it is true.More

I loved the Lobster Roll. It did not disappoint! We had been visiting with friends and this was on my list before we went home. I can’t wait to come back. BTW the new lobster place around the corner did not have lobster. The wait...on line wasn’t great but in the end it was worth it.More
