Stopped in here while bicycling around Key West with my wife in Nov 2013 on a cruise stop. Got to love Urbanspoon to find these gems not on the touristy roads. Its a very small place, maybe 10 tables. We arrived mid afternoon and there were no other customers....just Mo and us. I had a salmon sandwich that was served... More

This food is just absolutely delicious. Everything is made fresh by Mo when you order, so it might take a while. There's just one hostess/waitress, who I think is Mrs. Mo, but not sure. Just be patient, have an ice-cold beer or their delicious homemade ice tea or lemonade. We came for lunch and I wondered at first why a... More

Outstanding local joint with attentive service, tasty food, and one of the most authentic experiences you'll find. The kitchen serves up outstanding Carribbean creole cuisine and the waitstaff anticipates your needs. We strongly recommend saving room for dessert, although you'll be tempted by most of the menu.

We love trying local's restaurants and based on reviews Mo's looked like a great option. Went for lunch (didn't open til exactly noon). Never tried it and heard lots about it so I ordered the creole oxtail ($12). My bride ordered the creole pork ($10). She has red beans and rice and I had black beans and rice. The food... More

I'm shocked this isn't rated higher. This was seriously the best meal I've had in some time and each of the people I was with agreed. It is a cute small restaurant located a bit on the outskirts of the downtown area. My friends and I walked here from Old Town and it took only about 20 minutes. I ordered... More

We had excellent grouper and snapper served in a Cajun sauce with rice and vegetables. The seafood was fresh and delicious. This restaurant is a simple place, but the service was good and our meal very good.

After wintering in Key West for years, we finally made it to Mo's this evening for one of the best dinners I've ever had on this island. We walked in the door (and even though I'd heard it wasn't fancy), I was surprised. It really is kind of a dive with a few tables and a bar along one side... More

Just came back from a wonderful lunch at Mo's. I ordered the pork creole dish and my husband ordered the grouper sandwich. My pork creole came with a huge portion of dirty rice and beans and tostones (fried green plantains). I couldn't begin to finish my meal! Expertly prepared, the pork chunks were deliciously crispy on the outside while staying... More

I came here by myself for dinner one night after doing a yoga class right next door. I had read rave reviews on Tripadvisor. It is a Mom and Pop Caribbean restaurant- a hole-in-the-wall with locals (or family members) sitting at the counter and there are a bunch of paper money pasted up behind the counter. It is decorated with... More
