There’s a great little joint that has been around since 1936. It is where both the locals and tourists head when they are in Newport for inexpensive, fresh and delicious seafood.
It is a cute place. The decor is coastal kitchy. Nothing fancy. In fact, it used to be a chicken coop. It has come a long way since then, baby!
It’s the kinda place that might get rowdy at night and the faint whiff of stale beer, ocean salt and fried food mingle in the air.
But the menu is extensive and the prices are more than reasonable for what you get.
It is called Flo’s Clam Shack.
We shared a Lobster Roll
And a plate of Fried Clams.
Just look at the size of these clams!! The batter was perfect. Light and crispy, not heavy or greeezy at all!!
Flo’s is a fixture at the edge of First Beach in Newport and a must on your list if you visit!
