It had been many years since I ate here but I'm glad to say it is still special. I loved the lobster roll and the view of the water as I ate. One has to park way around back and enter from there. Prices are...More

My wife and I stayed at a hotel very close by. We checked the reviews and they were great so we walked over. We ordered the fried clams, fiery stuffed quahog, and 1/2 dozen of the clamcakes. Everything we ordered was just not good. The...More

This place is so cool and so unique. Can be tricky to find the parking lot and there's not a lot of room there once you do find it. But the ordering process is very unique and the decor is authentic. Not to mention the...More

The Google synopsis is spot on: “A no-frills stop for New England seafood...” Visiting Newport for the first time, we of course had to have seafood. Having checked out all the seafood restaurant reviews on TA, we narrowed our choice down to Flo’s, not only...More

Best clams we've ever had. Restaurant is nothing fancy but food was great. It's a place where you place your order at one window and pick it up at another inside. Find a table first and then order. Enjoyed the semi view of the water.

After a long walk from the breakers, arrived at Flo's. Went straight to the 2nd floor bar as my nephew instructed (if is self seating). Raw bar with cocktails upstairs. You need to go down and wait on line for the fried belly clams. Well...More

Awesome food, fun atmosphere but not fancy at all. Truly a shack but food is very good and portions are generous

I came here with the family on the recommendation from various friends and the TV shows that do reviews. First you place an order at a window then find a table. The portions are quite large and can be split. I would go for lunch...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!
