We stayed in Newport OR in a condo for a week. It took awhile for us to get a chance to go to Mo's Annex for some chowder. It was worth the wait and the place is really pretty cool. We've had better chowder at Pier 39 in San Francisco for my money but that's pretty subjective. Mo's chowder was very good and we were not disappointed in any way. I could sit in that restaurant looking over the harbor and watching folks all day and it would be an enjoyable experience. You should go.

We try to go to Mo's everytime we go to Newport. The staff is friendly, and the Clam Chowder is fantastic. We would reccomend Mo's

Ate at Mo's Annex twice and Original Mo's once because the Annex was closed. Annex overlooks the water and you can see the day's catch being cleaned on the dock outside. Original Mo's is across the street and down the block a little ways. Same menu and prices.

Very busy place, short line all 3 times but they are efficient and do what they do very well. Excellent fried oyster sandwiches served with a bay shrimp salad or clam chowder ($9). Their crab melt was very good also for $13. Friendly waiters. Obviously we liked it or we wouldn't have returned 2 more times since there are lots of dining options in Newport.

They may be a very old establishment and have multiple locations, but I liked the food and very casual atmosphere and I recommend Mo's if you like good seafood in a casual setting.

We read about this place and decided it was a must do! Located right on the docks in Newport, we could hear sea lions roaring, smell the fish and hear the ocean. We walked in and noticed a picture of a Kennedy on the wall and the delicious smell! We asked for table by the window and had a great view of the dock. We all ordered the chowder and the oysters! Loved it! The atmosphere was great, lots of locals as well as tourists. A great mix! The scenery, the food, the atmosphere, the service, yes, you should go!

Really just a bit better than average in most respects. We seated six; offerings were ok. Toward the end of the meal, waitress took a hike, which was annoying; she was pleasant enough...just absent.
