After a day of travelling along the Oregon coast, I really just wanted some comfort food to take-out and back to my hotel room to relax. I had seen the billboards advertising Mo's along my drive and decided to try them. I ordered a simple...More

It is sometimes good when things do not change. We had clam chowder here years ago and returning was a must do during our visit to Newport this trip. We found the restaurant busy as always, good service and the food consistently excellent.

I was able to return again to MO's for their outstanding clam chowder loaded with clams. Get it to go and walk to the water (a block away) to watch the sea lions. Delicious chowder with great photo opportunities!

Mo's has some really good chowder but the wait lines to be able to dine in are always ridiculous so we ordered clam chowder to go and went back to our condo for lunch.

Our family brought 2 guests to the Newport area for a long weekend. First stop? Mo's first, for a delicious lunch! Parking, as usual, was hard to find both curbside, and in parking lots close by. So we parked above the hillside, and walked down....More

We arrived on a Wednesday evening and were seated quickly. We love halibut. While not quite as good as what we ate in Alaska, their halibut was very good. We had the lightly-breaded halibut. Was pleased they had mashed potatoes instead of fries. Chowder was...More

We traveled here with family from So Cal after my OSU graduation in 1977. Had to return to recapture the moment and was not disappointed. Their clam chowder is my favorite. My daughter in law (first timer) proclaimed the oyster shooters the best she has...More

You just can never go wrong! My husband loves the clam chowder, and I am not a fish water, so this time I ordered the cheeseburger (I know, I get an odd look each time). Both were very good. The service was great and we...More

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
