This was the first restaurant we ate at when we got to Newport because we wanted clam chowder and they claim they have the best (in the west). The chowder was good, but the clams weren't very big and there seemed to be more potatoes. We got the sourghdough bread bowl, which was a little dry. Service was good, but... More

We waited way too long for this meal. Over 40 minute wait. Slow service once we were seated. Average meal. Shrimp seafood salad average spiced and seafood stew too tomato-y

We always eat at Mo's when visiting Newport. I had the shrimp skewers with the bay shrimp salad and the garlic green beans. It was good, my husband had a fish and chips basket with clam chowder and my daughter had a tuna melt with chowder. They said the tuna melt was awesome. Very busy place, filled with tourists but...

Having heard Mo's clam chowder had to be tried, we made sure to stop by Mo's in Newport. It was busy, but we were seated quickly. Nice selection of seafood and good-sized portions. The atmosphere was homey with lots of pics on the walls. Our waitress, who was friendly and upbeat, recommended their beer-battered halibut fish and chips. So we... More

The restaurant opened on the Newport bay front in the 1940's. I ate their a lot in the 1970's and the 1980's until I moved to the midwest. When I returned to Oregon in 1996, I eagerly awaited my first trip to Mo's in almost 20 years. The food, etc at Mo's location at Otter Rock is small and funky,... More

We've grown less patient with the folks who are bringing large numbers of children, sometimes poorly behaved, to any restaurant, and Mo's gets them all. All. We prefer to visit the coast in the less-busy months, and this makes it far more pleasant at attractions and restaurants. Eat at off-hours, or later in the evening, and the meals are more... More

We have to eat here when we visit the coast. Our last visit in December was miserable. This time was much better. We all ordered clam chowder. It seems to have more potatoes now. It was still very good. Our waitress was friendly and prompt. We visited at 6 pm on a Sunday. We were seated immediately. Although parking in... More

The freshest, largest, west coast oysters that were grilled to perfection, that I have ever tasted!!!!! Accompanied by a simple cabbage salad, the oysters tasted of a briny sea and were just great! Skip the clam chowder and order the oysters. Service was slow but the staff was nice and friendly

Said they were known for their clam chowder but it was a little bland and my daughters hamburger looked so gross. I would say the food was just ok. The restaurant atmosphere is not much to speak of either.
