You can't go wrong with Mo's, everything they make is great. The restaurant is small, but they have added the "Annex" across the street to accommodate the traffic. The chowder is New England style, and even though I'm originally from New England I think this...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
