Men's floor competition at the 2008 Summer Olympics was held on August 17 at the Beijing National Indoor Stadium.

The eight competitors (with a maximum of two per nation) with the highest scores in qualifying proceeded to the men's floor finals. There, each gymnast performed again; the scores from the final round (ignoring qualification) determined the final ranking.
