If I could give negative stars, I would. Extremely rude, biased staff member. Unfortunately, the only one I interacted with. I've always wanted to try Mo's so stopped by to pick up a bowl of clam chowder on December 9th - waited in line 10-15...minutes to submit my order. It was cold & windy that evening & a bread bowl of warm chowder sounded perfect. When it was my turn to order, the young man who was taking orders ignored me and tried to take the order of the couple standing behind me. After they indicated I was next in line he asked them if we were together. They stated we were not. He then asked me if I had my cell phone on me (He had not asked the people ordering in front of me if they had a cell phone on them). I stated I did. He promptly told me that if I wanted to place an order I needed to call it in. I told him it was frustrating to wait in line, in the cold, to be turned away. His extremely rude response was, "well, that's unfortunate for you," and he promptly began to try to take the order from the people behind me. I left and needless to say, I did not call an order in. None of the signage indicated call in was required but I returned the next morning just in case I had overlooked some instruction that stated call in orders were required or even preferred. I have not been to Seaside since Spring and do not understand why the unprofessional young man tasked with taking orders was so rude. He has no business being in any type of customer service or public interacting position. I will not return here, nor do I plan to try any of their other establishments and do not recommend this business to others.More

inexpensive, and good food. We stayed next door at the Seashore Inn, and ordered on line. They called us when the order was ready, and we were able to pick up with minimal contact with other guests and staff.

We enjoyed the chowder so much that we went back. Big steaming bowl . Very nicely distanced and set up for COVID precautions.

This pathetic mini-chain holds a prime position on the promenade at Seaside, perhaps the best spot for a restaurant in town. I ate there 10 months ago, pre-Covid, and it was ok, passable, but not great. On Friday it was one of the worst experiences...at the Oregon Coast my family has ever had. For starters, they have rude, frustrated, staff. The very first thing that our waitress did was jump down the throat of my 70 year old Mother & Aunt, declaring "WE DON'T HAVE A FULL BAR!!!" The fact that you don't post that your drink service and selection is limited was of note. We found out by having the fact all but spat at us. This was just the beginning, the food leaves much to be desired. In an area known for real quality seafood, they serve garbage on kitsch fish-shaped plates, reminds me of Skippers, but, Skippers had good fish and chips. Mo's fish and chips looked as though the fry-oil was 30wt. I'm sorry, but every menu item was a poor excuse, bad. I would strongly encourage people to skip this dreck and go to another of the much higher quality nearby places. Avoid Mo's at all costs!More

We were visiting Seaside for our 30th anniversary, and wanted to have a nice anniversary dinner. Not much to choose from, so we went to Mo's. The view is wonderful, but the food was average. Clam chowder was similar to what we have had at...Ivar's or Skipper's. So, nothing extraordinary. Service was okay. Very noisy. Not the nice quiet anniversary dinner we would have liked. But the view of the sunset was great.More

Located right at the Main Street turnaround across from the Lewis & Clark Statue. Co located with the Shilo Hotel, but don't hold that against them. Wonderful food, consistent quality, affordable prices. Gotta stop here whenever you are at Seaside Oregon
