This place in a former life was excellent when it was on A1A. Now I think it is closed and for good reason. Food selection was horrible. The crabs are over priced and the service was worse. Good riddance

Roared with laughter at the last review (the "ghetto" one). Having frequented crab joints for almost 60 years, we are always amused by the reactions of people who don't know what to expect. My God, they were shocked by the brown roll paper on the tables! What did they think? Most places used to use newspaper. Mo's is a great... More

this place is so ghetto we could not stay to eat, the smell from the outside was very undesireable, no windows anywhere, concrete floor that looked like it had never been cleaned, brown packaging paper for a table cloth, no bottled water, (you really don't want to drink cocoa beach's tap water, sulphur odor, no fresh vegetables, avoid this place...

We were in Cocoa Beach to go on a cruise and had a free evening. Found Mo's Crab Heaven. We had all you could eat steamed crabs and crab cakes. The food was just GREAT. Prices were exceptionally reasonable!!!!

Crabs are good and the food is fresh and not overcooked. Friendly service and cold, cold beer! It is one of those hidden gems, a dive with good food and friendly service.

A group of ten of us went to Mo's Crab Heaven on Merritt Island about 2 weeks ago. Five of us got the all you can eat maryland steamed crabs. Being from Md. I was a bit skeptical when I first ordered but was delighted to find that the crabs were absolutely delicious. They were medium crabs but were very... More

We went there based on the Lonely Planet recommandation. It is not a fancy place, and is located between two car dealers. We wondered at first about the kind of restaurant we were going into, but we did not regret it. We had the steamed sampler platter for two (34.95$). It was so big, we didn’t manage to finish it,...
