We love Mo's. This is a little restaurant right alongside a cliff. The views are spectacular, although it can get a bit windy. It is only about a mile off of the main highway to get there. They serve the best clam chowder I have had (and I don't like fish or seafood). They serve a few other items also... More

We were headed up the 101 and wanted to see Devil's Punchbowl. We were starved and it is literally right there. We had never been to a Mo's but we will certainly go back. Our waitress was super friendly and suggested the fish tacos and ciopinno. We ordered those as well as a kids meal and fish "burger". The clam... More

First ate at the tiny Mo's West in 1974 when it still had sawdust floors. It is comforting to me that it hasn't changed much since, except now the crowds are daunting. A genuine Oregon Coast experience. Go with friends, enjoy the rustic ambiance and good clam chowder. Every eatery on the coast boasts its own delicious rendition of clam... More

The chowder to rate all others by.... The chowder in the bread bowl is about as good as it gets and very filling. The place is great and couldn't be situated in a nicer place, but seriously needs a remodel and addition for the space it really needs. Architect time.

Just a quick snack to sample the chowder with some crackers. Well worth the visit. Small menu but everything was excellent.

This tiny panoramic restaurant it's great. They serve oysters in several way and soups and seafood. There is a little shop with nice t-shirts, cups and glasses.

I have eaten at the Original Mo's in Newport, the one in Cannon Beach, and now this one at Otter Rock. This was by far the smallest of the Mo's but the food was still top notch! I believe if I counted right it can seat 60 people max, long tables that seat 8, so if just 2 in your... More

It was a foggy afternoon and hot clam chowder sounded like a good idea. It was closing time yet the two guys were very accommodating. We got 2 hot bowls of great chowder to warm us up! Big portion and good amount of clam! I should have got an oyster shooter as well!

This was a great little spot to have lunch and enjoy the scenery. The clam chowder was delicious and the cheesy garlic bread was fantastic.
