Always try to stop when I'm in the area. Their chowder is top notch and the view is amazing no matter what the weather is. Menu is full of many options but it is mainly a local seafood restaurant. Worth every penny and very family friendly.

Eating with a great view of the ocean. Clam chowder in tureens big enough to feed 3-4. Yummy garlic bread. We went for dinner one day and back for lunch the next day. There was a long line, but it moved right along. A must visit on the Oregon coast.

Stopped in for lunch, I had a bowl of New England clam chowder and my husband had the same in a bowl of sour dough bread. On a cold, rainy day it was perfect. We are from Cape Cod so we know clam chowder. This one had a strong bacon flavor and was good (not great). The setting was real... More

Visited Mo's on a couple of visits to Oregon. The service is great and very friendly. My favorite is halibut and chips. The chowder was very good. The Marionberry Cobbler was the best of all the restaurants we visited.

Mo's built their reputation on excellent clam chowder...and it is well deserved. Service was good, not excellent. Atmosphere was noisy but not painful.

When I went here it was not at rush hour and were seated immediately. I ordered calamari and it came with a bowl of their clam chowder. Although I am not a fan of clam chowder, Mo's became an exception. The chowder base was smooth and it provided a great contrast for the tender clams. Although the atmosphere was a... More

The food and service was good, but the Clam Chowder was not great. The chowder had too much potato and not enough clam meat and the soup base was just so so. I would recommend staying away from the chowder and focus on the other entrees such as grilled Cod and fish and chips. Also, add on some fresh onion... More

I love going to Mo's. They have the best chowder around. My family had never been to this one. We waited for a while for someone to seat us as they were cramming everyone into one area. Servers seemed nice but were very busy. If you can, wait to go to some of the other Mo's location. This one isn't... More

For the long lines and wait times I expected amazing food. The clam chowder was good, but the next day we went further down the street and they're clam chowder knocked Mo's out of the park. I ordered the fish and chips upgrading to the halibut. The batter was spongy and I had to peel it away to eat the... More

I love the Scumgullion--shrimp in clam chowder. Pats of butter still melting in the bowls of soup as they are delivered. Delicious shrimp cocktails, just another day at Mo's. This one is the original Mo's. The one that started it all. Old style character and good chowder.
