This is our favorite restaurant; it is delicious and fresh. The seafood that is served here is fresh from the ocean. We love eating here and the view is beautiful because the beach is right behind it. Me and my family like to walk around on the beach while we wait to be seated. At Mo’s restaurant there are many dishes to choose from and they are famous for their clam chowder. We always make sure that we take a big bowl to go. Mo’s is a family restaurant, and it has been around since 1946. The first time I took a taste of that yummy clam chowder I fell in love. As I have mentioned already food is very important and this is the time we gather with family. Having a beautiful view as you eat makes it even better, you can see the waves as you enjoy a meal.

''Mo and her restaurants have been and continue to be written up in dozens of newspapers and magazines around the United States. In 1999 Mo’s Clam Chowder was a featured entrée at the first luncheon ever held in the Smithsonian Institute, which celebrated “Best American Regional Foods.” She was very proud of the notoriety, but most of all grateful for the restaurants’ popularity, and she gave back graciously to her community. Mo gave of herself completely, promoting “Newport the Friendliest,” with her time, energy and money. That legacy continues to this day in her granddaughter Cindy McEntee. For her “outstanding development of her business and her contributions to the community” Cindy was awarded the 2001 1st runner up, National Small Business Person of the Year from President George W. Bush. Cindy continues to run the business today along with the help of her daughter Gabrielle and son Dylan. In January of 2005 Cindy published a book, Mo’s On The Waterfront, Tradition Turned Legend to honor the life of her beloved grandmother and to celebrate the business she created over 55 years ago''.

A trip to the Oregon Coast is not complete without a stop at Mo’s. We look Forward to serving you!
