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!

Stopped by for some clam chowder and wasn’t disappointed once again. The service was quick, friendly with great smiles. The staff is trained well.

This is the original place on the coast for seafood. The pricing is consistent and so is the food. Good for family eating.

If you've been in business as long as Mo's you've got to expect a few off nights and the night we visited was, for us anyway, one of those. We had a selection of dishes, including the chowder and unfortunately none of them were brilliant,...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
