There’s a good alternative for Mo’s in the Nye Beach district of Newport called the Chowder Bowl. The chowder was yummy and filling. A bowl was a full meal.
We had an excellent meal at a cafe inside a fish market in the bay section called Local Ocean Seafoods Market. It’s been open all of a month. The prices were inexpensive and the food was very creative. We had crab cakes, salmon fish tacos, tuna wraps and garlic clam chowder. All was good.
