Mo's is famous for it's seaside cuisine, but I have to say it's not really all that great. I've been here several times in different locations, and haven't been impressed. Not only is the food sub par, but the wait to get in is ridiculous. It's not worth it. I'd recommend going elsewhere.

Really friendly staff, ice cold beer and great chowder. There was a small wait for a table and the place is popular.

There are Mo's locations all along the coast but we waited to go to the original. It is definitely crowded, popular and a tourist trap. The food was mediocre at best. High quality it is not.

We did get the clam chowder, it was, simple, not much flavor, we had much much better along our road trip. We got a medley of all the local seafood's, that was fun, and very good. But it was nothing it was hyped... More

Newport has many restaurants that serve chowder and we simply picked Mo's since it was close to our hotel. The restaurant was not very full - it was off-season when we were there. The decor is extremely simple and the menu is not extensive. We came for the chowder and my wife ordered the Original Clam Chowder and I ordered... More

First off – this restaurant is worth the trip. As in, worth a trip to Oregon from anywhere else in the country solely for a trip to this restaurant. Going to Mo’s Original on the advice of (and with) local friends, we had our introduction to the friendly staff before we got into the restaurant, as a waitress chased a... More

I have to say that I am a huge fan of Mo's clam chowder! It's thick, creamy and has heaps of clams! We stopped in to get dinner to go which was two family size containers of clam chowder with thick slices of fresh bread on the side. Always a treat and always awesome!

Mo's is a good place for seafood...It is a neat atmosphere and a bucket of Mo's Chowder goes down great.
