Old fashioned, OK but not great

Mo's follows an old-fashioned seafood restaurant formula, which would be fine if it were implemented with more care. I had the steamer clams as an entree. They should have been manilla littleneck clams, but they weren't. They were either butter clams or gaper clams, somewhat smaller and less... read more

This is a must if you are in the area! The sauce on the fish tacos is phenomenal. Friendly service and you can tell they strive for good customer service. Great food at a reasonable price with an ocean view!

We ordered a takeout captains platter on my birthday, an option 1 with shrimp. We accidentally received an option 2 with scallops. I don't like scallops, but my boyfriend does so he said it's fine. It was not fine with me, so I called the restaurant. The waiter said to give him 4 minutes. So I walked back down from... More

Have not dined at Mo's for quite some time after three visits that turned out to be a far cry from the Oregon Coast reputation of excellence associated with this historic and highly advertised restaurant. The service was ok, and the food was edible, but pretty mundane. View was great. Will continue to read more recent reviews to get a... More

Good place to go if you're looking for decent and inexpensive seafood. Where there used to be carpets and a faint smell of booze, the floor is now carpet-free, so kids can have parties and spill things without it being a problem. Service was fast and courteous.

WE have eaten at Mo's for years now and it is one of our favorite Cannon Beach clam chowder places. The service is fast and accurate, the place has a great little gift shop and we own several Mo's sweatshirts as the weather has been wonderfully unpredictable.

Personally, I'd say don't waste your time on Mo's with so many other great places to eat in this area, I'd never return here again and wish I hadn't wasted my time or money here this time. Basically this food is similar to a Skippers, Ivars or Red Lobster (and all of those are actually better than Mo's). The clam... More
