Beyond the old, foreground pilings is Mo’s, a famous seafood restaurant on the waterfront of Florence, Oregon. I visit Oregon nearly once each year and never miss an opportunity to eat at any Mo’s location. But, Florence is my favorite.
In 1950, Mohava Marie Niemi began her first restaurant in the harbor of Newport, Oregon. It became a popular hangout for fishermen, recognized for its seafood, especially the clam chowder. In 1968 she opened Mo’s Annex, sister to Original Mo’s, across the street, overlooking Yaquina Bay. By the early eighties, Mo’s had expanded to Mo’s West at Devil’s Punchbowl in Otter Rock, Lincoln City, Florence, and Cannon Beach.
