“Pretty OK”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Overall the food was just that, "Pretty OK".... The view was very nice. I am a huge fan of chowder in a bread bowl but this was just ok. No frills, nothing special. Kind of expected a bit more being right on the coast, but not so much.
Would come back again, but would order something different.

Thank Marcus M

“poor service”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We did not realize that the restaurant closed at 7 p.m., we went in at approximately 6:20 and there was still a line.
At first we were waited on promptly once we got a table (there was 9 of us so it took a few minutes). We placed our order at about 6:40 but we didn't receive it until 7:30 p.m. Our waitress seemed to be more interested in wiping a back counter and talking to someone who was cooking. We could see her. The coffee pot was turned off at 7:00 since they closed then and so the coffee when refilled was cold.
One of the kids ordered a shrimp skewer. And while yes it was for a child, it came with one skewer, a bag of potato chips, and some shredded lettuce on the plate. Really?? Needless to say it did not fill up my 7 year old grandson. Very frustrating.
We have eaten here before and it was good, although we usually eat at the Mo's in Lincoln City.
I don't think I will be able to get my family there again

Our chowder was mediocre at best
Tasted like it had been sitting on a warmer with no attention for way too long. Thick and pasty with no real flavor to speak of. We also had oyster stew. No other way to put it; it sucked. Oysters so overcoked and no flavor what so ever. Hard for me to belive the chef, no line cook, could taste this and let a server deliver it to a table. The icing on the cake was the nasty smell of dead fish that streamed in from the open window in the dining room. Party fishing and crab boats dock below the restaurant. It might be on the water, but you can do better. Go anywhere else.

“It's our Mo's of choice in Newport”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

We love the Annex. We are always bewildered as to why the "original" Mo's across the street is always so packed. It has no view, no atmosphere and I must be missing something.

This Mo's gets busy, sure. But we are always seated fairly quickly and most tables have a wonderful view of the bay. The service is good, though on this visit it took a VERY long time to get even our salads. Others who came in after us got their salads before we did (different server), so I attribute this to a temporary server problem.

The food, as always, was wonderful. Both the shrimp and fish were grilled to perfection and the serving size was good.

“Pretty good, but 'Taft' restaurant hard to beat.”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Been here several times. Portions are smaller than in Taft. I get the cod sandwich here because they don't have a deep fryer at this location....therefore I can't get fish n' chips. The cod filet on the sandwich is equivalent to 'Skippers' portions. Other Mo's outlets consistently beat the annex. The chowder was great as usual though.
