Not the quality I would have expected

We stopped in just for lunch. They are located on the waterfront where all the restaurants and shops are located. They are known for their clam chowder, but they obviously hadn't done a good job cleaning the clams first as it was full of sand and the service was not that great.

Ate here a couple of days ago. The food was lacking flavour for all the dishes we had (fish tacos, shrimp side, fried calamari) and the service was average at best. It filled us up and was not too expensive but not the homey good seafood that mo's is apparently known for.

The food lacked flavor and we were unimpressed by the ambiance. We stopped because we were too hungry to travel back to the Mo's in Lincoln City. It didn't live up to our expectations.

Fish and chips was my choice at Mo's recently, and I was sorely disappointed. The cod was deep fried into oblivion. The filets were small, and the tips and thinner section were very over done. No complaints on the chowder, except for the fact that I know at least 4 other places in the area that have superior chowder by... More

We had a great experience at Mo's. We got a seat immediately, even on a busy day, and were seated next to a big window with a fantastic view of the beach. The food was delicious. The family sized clam chowder for $15 was large enough to feed the whole family. My sister (who doesn't like seafood) was amazed at... More

I can only say I,ve been enjoying this place for years and even had the pleasure of meeting Mo herself when she was alive. What a wonderful person! The food here is high quality and the view of the bay is awesome.

Loved this place, fabulous for families, great food and they were fast but didn't rush you or your little ones out the door. Our waitress was fantastic and was very accommodating to our 2 yr old that wanted to order for herself.

Mo's is one of my favorite places to eat all along the Oregon coast. Newport's is the flag ship restaurant and continues their reputation of famous chowder. Along with chowder, I also had their prawns which were very good. But, my most favorite thing on their menu is the Marionberry cobbler topped with ice cream, TO DIE FOR. One of... More

My lovely bride and I dropped in at Mo's, for lunch and she had a bowl of Chowder and I had a bowl of Slumgullion.....that's Chowder with a handful of salad shrimp added on top. Both chowders were exactly what you would from Mo's......great! After watching the Christmas season movie
