The trashy women who work here hardly wear anything. They look like meth head trailer trash. I came in here for chowder not a NA meeting.

Our family ate there yesterday. The restaurant is obviously very noisy and extremely busy with long lines. The food was filling, but small portions. The service was excellent and our waitress had her hands full with all 13 of us.

A truly fun experience for both locals and visitors! The food is good and great place for the family! It is a casual place so expect it to be a bit rustic.

Not at all impressed by the food. It seems to be made more for the masses then for flavor. Much better, fresher seafood can be found close by.

The BEST shrimp and clam chowder I have ever had the honor of gracing my tastebuds with. If you've never eaten here you don't know what you're missing!

To the best of my knowledge they do not take reservations, but it may vary from location to location. Generally, Mo's is a popular dining option on the Oregon Coast, no matter what location, so your best bet is always to... More

I guess if your question was about lunch reservations a few days ago this answer won't help much now! If you didn't get to Mo's, for future information, no, they don't take reservations. Sometimes there is not much of a wait... More
