The Clam Chowder was the best. The crab and shrimp were wonderful. Had great service and all our needs were met.

If you are looking for "traditional" fried seafood, then this is the place. Great service. Outstanding views of the coast and the stacks from the final scenes of The Goonies. Atmosphere as expected for eating on picnic tables inside a restaurant.

We were out and about and getting quite hungry and Mo's boasted the "best clam chowder" so we gave it a try. We also order the "foot" of onion rings and the shrimp salad on cabbage. I won't say it was the best chowder, but it wasn't bad, the onion ring were good and the salad was good. Fast and quick snack for the afternoon.

When an acclaimed fish place, across from the docks, is empty at 12:30pm, well..."here's your sign" - time to go elsewhere. Clam chowder was disappointing. Clams were tough & chewy, seasoning was bland. Also had fish tacos and fish & chips. Had to argue with the server about not wanting a side dish. Fish tacos were okay, but nothing special. Service was slow (with 5 tables in the whole place? really??) There was a mystery change to our bill - the server did not explain. Frankly, I did not ask either, I just wanted to get out of there.This was our last visit to Mo's. It's such a shame to see a local landmark get lost so far from the original vision.

This place has a great reputation, for the chowder anyway. So we visited on the early evening to see if the hype was legit. We waited several minutes, with several servers walking by, before anyone acknowledged us and took us to our table. Another lengthy bit of time before our orders were taken. We ordered, and food came relatively quickly. The fish and chips were on the dry side, fries were undercooked.

It's not the place was bad - but a seafood place on the coast with a good reputation, you expect better. And there are other choices.
