“Best Clam chowder on the Oregon Coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

This restaurant not only has great views of the Florence harbor it's got good food too. Call me partial because I grew up in Florence but since the closing of the Windward Inn some years ago Mo's is the number one spot for Clam Chowder. Generous on the clams and O so creamy!

“Cute place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

When we saw how many Mo's were along the coast we knew we'd have to try one. This Mo's is right on the water along the river. Very cute. We love clam chowder & try it everywhere. Mo's was fine. Not the best I've ever had (that was at the Lime Inn at St. Johns) but pretty good. I had the hot crab melt which was very good. Husband had the fish tacos. He didn't think they were very good. I had a bite and had to agree. Mine are much better. Still, it was a nice stop.

“Mo's Blows”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

If you have to eat here get a cup of chowder or the bread bowl. The rest is greasy, crusty, mayo, slimed, goo. Yuck. Not impressed,

The view is the best thing about Mo's, then the clam chowder, then getting up and leaving.

We made the mistake of ordering the 'homemade' coconut cream pie. Doh- Elmers glue with a few tasteless coconut flakes strewn about. Left it sitting pretty much intact with the spoons jutting out the top untouched. Should have taken it home to patch some walls.

Mom got a Bloody Mary, we all tasted it and agreed it was sans booze. When the server was asked she said she always adds a little extra. Extra what? Extra tap water?

Anyway, not the servers fault and she was a nice girl, quick and polite.

Bottomline- unless you only want OK chowder- just go elsewhere.

“Better off elsewhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Mediocre and quite cold inside. Much better looking places in area. The server was great. I will go to the top trip advisor reviews next time
