The original Mo's in Newport was a great experience in the 1970s and for one or two decades after that. Then they decided to expand and are now in several locations on the coast. We visited this Mo's in Lincoln City on a recent trip to the Oregon coast. This was mid-week and the restaurant was not busy. We were seated expeditiously and did not have to wait long for our food. Both of us had the cup of clam chowder and a combination plate of fish, oysters and clams. The chowder was not up to the standards we were used to but passable. The combination plate was fine, quite generous actually and we took some of the food home. The service was good. Other reviewers have commented that all the food is deep friend. In Mo's defense, there are other options on the menu - they have now introduced other items such as hamburgers, chili and a few other offerings. All in all, this is a decent place to eat, service is good and the view is quite nice - particularly if you have one of the window tables.
If you're looking for fine dining, Mo's has never been that kind of place. If you want an enjoyable family meal, this will be just fine.

and did not disappoint! This restaurant was right across the street from our hotel. We all had the clam chowder, which was said to be a must try by our friend. Fabulous! (and, we have never had clam chowder before, being scared of the word "clam"). They have a large menu and we enjoyed fish and shrimp dishes, as well.

Everyone I talked to before my vacation said I had to eat at Mo's because of their chowder. I was highly disappointed. The first time I made chowder it was better than that lumpy bowl of crap. I didn't even finish it, this may have been good when it was fresh but it had clearly been sitting back there all day long. All in all it was just okay.

Lots of noise but nice seats by windows. The clam chowder was wonderful. I had the crab melt and it was very good. My hubby had the shrimp skewer and said it was good. The service was friendly and prompt. There are lots of interesting things on the walls to catch your attention and they have a gift shop there as well. We will definitely return to this restaurant when we are back in the area. We won't hesitate to recommend this place to family and friends.

I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy the surroundings and the food here, but we didn't. A local took us to Mo's, but it was hard to find things on the menu that weren't deep fried. Even most of the sandwiches are fried. The air smelled deep fried. It was crowded and very noisy. People around us seemed to enjoy themselves and had mammoth trays of food they looked enthusiastic about, so we probably aren't very typical. Service was fine and there was a view of the shoreline.
