We had travelled around New England and was disappointed with the food we had eaten, until we arrived at Flo's. Wow amazing food, good value, NO EXCESSIVE TIPPING.

It has a great beach vibe. The clam strips were excellent but the stuffed clams were basically breading. The clam chowder was just average. There is a raw bar but we were unable to try because it was backed up. Worth a visit

We wanted fried clams and Flo's had them. It was a huge order, plenty for 2 to share. We felt like we were at the beach.

We tried Flo's because of the good reviews, our food was very disappointing. I had the fish sandwich, which was more breading and grease than fish. My husband tried a combo seafood plate which was also heavily breaded. I would not recommend this place for...More

I don't know...sorry...the only "outside seating" is upstairs and it's enclosed with windows. I would think that dogs are not allowed. Probably best to contact Flo's directly!
