Good food at a great price

This is a great place to go for a casual meal at anytime during the day. The staff is very friendly, and there is a great view of Haystack Rock from the window seats and the patio.

This iconic place is not a bad place, but not a great one either. It sits right on the beach at Tolovana Wayside. The decor is pure kitche! Has an outdoor deck for sunny days. It's loud, so a great place for families. Can't go wrong with the chowder or fish n chips. Try the desserts, which are really good.

This place has great basic seafood. It is not fancy at all but wonderfully family friendly. The menu is diverse and good for kids and adults. Their clam chowder is one of the best I have every had. I wish they had outdoor seating as they are right on the beach and have an amazing view.

I got a combo platter with cod, popcorn scallops and clam strips and a bowl of clam chowder. Everything was very good, but the clam chowder just seemed to lack flavor. I'd been eating clam chowder for several days in a row and this didn't measure up. It was too bland. It was good, but not memorable.

We found that Mo's was only a couple of blocks from our motel and were looking for clam chowder on our first evening in town. We had our chowder, but it was included in a delicious shrimp special they were serving, and we loved every bite! It was three types of shrimp on one plate, and all were very good.

We always come here when we are in town. Lunch was very good again....bowl of chowder, razor claims, and a large shrimp salad. The views are great as your on the beach. Service is always attentive and the menu/prices are just right. Recommend, definitely!

Personally, I prefer it with the little shrimps on top. The Cannon Beach location has a great view of the ocean. Lincoln City does as well.

Quite possibly over-rated. Clam chowder definitely not outstanding. Tried multiple seafood including marionberry pie and it was all average. Nice view of the ocean though.

I eat here several times during every visit to Cannon Beach. They have the BEST clam chowder in the world. The menu is varied. The prices reasonable. Large portions. Very busy. I recommend going early. Right on the ocean, great view.

As ever since discovered as a teenage the warmth of Mo's is so looked forward to. No longer a resident of Oregon, ... each time I am near a Mo's location I am "pulled" to enjoy there food. YES, Mo's! We went to the original Mo's
