Mo's is noted for the clam chowder and after a cup, we could see why. It was the best we have ever tasted. Been to Boston and the East Coast and this puts them to shame. I also had the mussel appetizer and could not believe that there were 30 in the bowl. Made me very happy. The wife had shrimp Louis and it was a large serving that was very good. Place is clean and service is very good.

Local seafood eats, fresh, not over done and surprisingly not busy on Saturday night. Good for kids too. Steamed oysters and clams were the BOMB!

No hostess at "wait to be seated" area for 7-10 minutes, one member of our group of 6 had to wait ten minutes after our food was delivered for his. When it arrived his Halibut steak was tough, rubbery and had no flavor, fish tacos tasted fish was frozen, clam chowder was watery and I cannot believe it is "famous". Very disappointed and won't go back to any Mo's.

To clarify, we went to the one in Cannon Beach. Location couldn't have been better as Haystack rock is your view with families on the beach playing and flying kites. Quick friendly service in a clean efficiency environment. We all got slumgullion which is chowder with small bay shrimp on top. Not sure I really tasted the shrimp flavor addition but it was delicious and we were all full. They only charge $2 more for the bread bowl which seemed fair. Would definitely go back.
