Good!

It's famous right? So of course we had to try it! Decent burgers, good fish n chips, good onion rings. Our server was the best! "Betty" - and a good sales lady so watch out! Haha! Long wait. Get there early to put your name down so you can walk around- they'll text you when it's time!

Mo's is a must when visiting Newport. It's right on the Bayfront and they have the most amazing fresh food. I got their fish and chips with their clam chowder and was thoroughly impressed, very friendly staff and a great atmosphere!

There was a bit of a wait as the cafe is pretty little. Everyone was very friendly and the food was great, especially the clam chowder.

If you are driving the Oregon Coast you will see many signs for the variety of Mo's locations. We stayed in Newport and decided to give the "original" location a go. While they are "famous" for their chowder, I thought it was just average. On the other hand, the fish tacos were great. My hubby enjoyed the cioppini as well.... More

We had the hamburgers and they were real meat with homemade fries. So yummy!! The wait staff was very friendly and even had a great sense of humor. Not your typical tourist trap restaurant where they seat you, feed you and take your money. The staff actually carried on a conversation and was very courteous.

We ate lunch at Mo's at Newport Beach and liked it so much that we visited Mo's at Cannon Beach as well. The fish tacos, the clam chowder, the fish and chips, and the clams are all done right! The prices are reasonable and the service is quite good. Mo's chose its locations well. We highly recommend Mo's when your... More

Of course you have to eat at Mo's if you are in Newport! The chowder is always great, but the service was quite slow this time. One of the kids with us had chicken, which was overcooked (I told him they probably weren't used to cooking chicken). But my fish tacos were good!

This Mo's was only one open after 7 pm. The annex across the street is on water but closed early. We had a server who was not very outgoing or friendly. 30 minute wait to be seated. We love their clam chowder and have been to Cannon Beach, Lincoln City restaurants on water several times. Love those locations. I Had... More

Mo's is a staple of Oregon Beach culture. Steak fries, thick garlic bread, clam chowder and FRESH seafood that you can only get on the coast. A MUST go if your not from the region.
