Our family ate there yesterday. The restaurant is obviously very noisy and extremely busy with long lines. The food was filling, but small portions. The service was excellent and our waitress had her hands full with all 13 of us.

A truly fun experience for both locals and visitors! The food is good and great place for the family! It is a casual place so expect it to be a bit rustic.

To the best of my knowledge they do not take reservations, but it may vary from location to location. Generally, Mo's is a popular dining option on the Oregon Coast, no matter what location, so your best bet is always to... More
