“Seriously good Seafood”

When Mohava Marie Niemi, Newport’s crusty, big hearted chain smoking mother died in 1992 at the age of 79, she left behind much more than a successful business and a trunk full of colorful anecdotes. Her greatest legacy, perhaps, was the work ethic she instilled in her family, which survives to this day. Mo’s entry into the business world began in 1940 when she and her father bought the Bay Haven Inn on Newport’s salty waterfront. In 1946 they sold the tavern when Mo joined her friend Freddy Kent, to start a café called “Freddie and Mo’s” (a few years later when Freddie became ill, Mo bought her friend out, thus sealing the legacy of Mo’s.) The newly divorced mother of two growing sons found it necessary to take a second job, so she became an announcer at local radio station KNPT, where she did a neighborhood talk show, a job she kept until the mid-seventies.

Five Coast locations to serve you. This is the original location. A trip to the beach isn't complete without a cup of Mo's famous clam chowder. Chowder so good that former Senator Bobby Kennedy once had it flown to him while he was on the presidential campaign trail! And what's more, in 1999, Mo's clam chowder was a "Featured Entree" at the first luncheon ever held in the Smithsonian Institute, which celebrated "Best American Regional Foods."
