Default Best chowder on the coast?

Time to have a tasty argument. Where is the best clam/seafood chowder on the coast? I have a couple faves but I'm interested in hearing what others have to say.

Hands down, Mo's. No competition. My personal favorite is Mo's Annex located on the Newport Bayfront because of the good view of Yaquina Bay.

Pirate's Cove has them all beat. It's less then 1 mile North of Garibaldi.

We really like the chowder at the Drift Inn in Yachats!

I have eaten at Mo's many times and I personally feel that it's much ado about nothing. I've had better chowder in the Valley. I think that they are resting on their laurels. Hasn't been good for at least fifteen years. Not sure what I would say is the best. I'm a chowder snob.

Mo's is the "Denny's" of the coast. It's canned and tastes like it. Here is the best:

1) Captian Ron's in Lincoln City

2) The Chowder Bowl at Nye Beach in Newport

All others are pretenders.

My opinion...The Chowder Bowl at Nye Beach in Newport! Wonderful area, atmosphere, and great chowder! I agree Mo's is over-rated. Enjoy!

I have to agree with Blazer Prophet. Neither my husband nor I like Mo's. It seems to have a lot of potatoes, and not much in the way of clams. Captain Ron's in Lincoln City used to be The Dory Cove. For decades, The Dory Cove was famous for its chowder, but very sadly burned down a couple of years ago. Captain Ron's, although does not have the ambiance of The Dory Cove, uses the same recipes.

Mo's is not the best... just a lot of branding... Any place that deep fries their entire menu has to be suspect. I've had good Chowder at the Sea Hag (DePoe Bay), Captain Ron's (mentioned already in this thread) in Lincoln City is decent. Tidal Rave's in DePoe Bay isn't bad either. The very best is McGrath's, so when you visit the coast take it with you...

Travel Oregon did a spread on this....it was a search to find the best clam chowder on the Oregon Coast. The two that got the best reviews, was Wayfarer Resturant in Cannon Beach, followed closely by the clam chowder at the Lakeshore Lodge. The chef that makes that, on the clam chowder contest so many times, they ended up asking him to hang up his apron and give someone else a chance.
Oh, also, it does mention Quimbys in Newport. (sorry, i was scanning the article while typing ) Those seem to be the top 3.
me, Im not a fan of Mo's either.....
