We came here on a last minute choice for a large group. Called ahead, and even on short-ish notice, they fit us in. The food was amazing – the baked brie was the most delicious thing I have eaten in a long time – maybe ever LOL. The staff was very friendly and handled our large, somewhat obnoxious group with smiles and made us all feel welcome. Highly recommend Mo’s!

This place is great. The food is very good, and the wine selection is fabulous. Bartender Ramey usually greets you upon arrival, remembers your name, and makes you feel you’re part of the “family.” The owner, Terry, usually floats around chatting to patrons, making sure all is good. The warm friendly feeling adds to its charm.

We had an early dinner here last night and the food and service was terrific. The owner and the rest of the staff were very pleasant and made us feel right at home. My wife and I both had the seafood linguini as our entrées and they were delicious. We’ll be back the next time we are in the area. The restaurant is nestled in a beautiful valley and its so calm and laid back.

My wife and I ate at this place last night. Wonderful Santa Fe chicken dinner! Desert was out of this world. Very nice place and everything looked good, as I was checking out everyone else’s food. Owner and staff are very nice. A great find in Salinas!!! We would eat here again, great food and very good prices too.

What an amazing accident! We stopped for gas and found this little gem! Delicious fish tacos and Rami were great. We came in between lunch and dinner, had the whole place to ourselves and wished we had time for more than a snack. Next time for sure!

I haven’t eaten the food yet but they get 5 stars simply for customer service…they just closed but let me come in and get my take-out food anyways! Very nice people! Thank you!

We are from out of town and made a pit stop for lunch based on someone’s recommendation and we were not let down at all! Terry greeted us as soon as we walked in and immediately made us feel welcomed. You could tell she is very passionate about her restaurant by her attitude and all of the details she incorporates within the restaurant. She had the cutest Valentines pillows and red light up jars on each table for the month of February – how cute is that?!? Now, about the food… we shared the lasagna and chicken nachos – everything is homemade, even the chips! It’s a bummer we don’t live closer because we would become regulars or even apply to work there. 🙂 Thanks Terry for a great experience, we will be back when we are in town again! From Marisa and Diane!!

OMG! The food here is DIVINE! I had a great meal and when I tasted my friend’s, I knew this place was a wonderful place to stop in and get served a little heaven.

A little place in the middle of nowhere sometimes can exist without good food because of lack of options. This is not that place. This place has good food and a friendly staff making it a gem in the middle of nowhere. The Tuscan pizza was cheesy goodness and the bruschetta was on point. The price is right and the atmosphere is quaint. Not a bad place to have dinner when visiting Vision Quest Ranch in Salinas.

We had dinner at Mo’s while staying at Vision Quest Ranch nearby, and very much enjoyed it. Friendly service, delicious, fresh food. I had the French dip sandwich which was divine.

While staying at the Vision Quest Ranch (About 2-minute drive away) my family ate at Mo’s in June 2017 and enjoyed our experience. All of the staff at the River Road Grill was fantastic. Very professional and friendly. The decor was very basic, but nice. The restaurant was clean and well maintained. They offer a nice variety of items on the menu and have a full bar. We found all of the food my family ordered to be very good. The portion size was generous, and the prices were reasonable. If you are staying at Vision Quest or anywhere in the area, this is a great place to have a meal.

Excellent food, excellent service! Family friendly restaurant located in a very convenient location for all of us Las Palmas residents! Highly recommended!

Artichoke dip is to die for! In love with half rack of ribs and pulled pork sandwich! Always such a nice, welcoming environment! TV, music, and friendly staff definitely make it a great spot for the family or a causal night out. Will be eating here for quite some time for sure. Shout out to Terry for bringing it back with her own style! Amazing job!
