Best Clam Chowder on the Oregon Coast

Mo's Resturant


Chowder Bowl at Nye Beach

We tried out two different resturant's on the oregon coast.
Both places are known for there clam chowder.
So we had to try the clam chowder from both to see which one should win the best clam chowder award from CraftyNightOwls.
And while we were there we also tried there fish and chips.

So now that you know all about these 2 resturant's I bet you are wondering which one is the best.

The Clam Chowder Winner is ... Chowder Bowl at Nye Beach

Their clam chowder was creamy and delicious.
what I didn't like about mo's is that is was gritty and a bit course. I felt like there was sand in it.

Chowder Bowl at Nye Beach also had the better fish and chips. our dinner there was awesome. the food was fantastic, atmosphere friendly and it was a nice close walk to the beach. 

Hope you all check this place out.



  1. you must have gotten a bad batch, I LOVE mo's!!! I even have a copy cat recipe on my site!

  2. @ ashlee It's a good possibility that i did. I remembered Mo's clam chowder being so much better than this last trip. I still say that the chowder bowl was delicious though. :)
