Seafood

This resilient little clam shack in Middletown has been a seafood staple of Rhode Islaner's diets for decades. The shack has been knocked down by not one but several different hurricanes over its almost 80-year existence, only for it to re-emerge stronger, or at least with more expensive windows. There is only one way to do Flo’s, and it involves getting half-a-dozen clamcakes, and their famous fried clams, with a delicate breading and homemade cole slaw. The two story spot has a raw bar upstairs and crowds of people awaiting takeout orders in the ground level, so grab a spot wherever you can which will hopefully be on their deck with ocean views. Just watch out for those hurricanes.
