Three of us had a nice breakfast at Dorn's in Morro Bay yesterday. The breakfast could have been absolutely awesome, but cold food and undercooked home-fried potatoes reduced the breakfast to "mediocre". Wife and I shared a Mediterranean omelet with pancakes. The omelet was cold, the potatoes were undercooked. The pancakes were nothing special. The meal was on the verge... More

Being one of those people with a dairy allergy it is difficult to find restaurants and servers that can accomodate. No problem at Dorns. Sat at the bar and the bartender had no problems with recommendations,etc. Awesome. Food was prepared perfectly and all was good. Enjoyed the conversation with the bartender and the hostess. All in all a great dinner.... More

Had the Salmon special. Was probably the best meal I eaten there. An evening fog bank rolled in and made the Rock disappear.

My sisters and I ate at this restaurant while on a family vacation with a brother and sister-in-law. The restaurant was very quaint and had lots of atmosphere. We enjoyed our meal there and would recommend Dorns to others.

There's a reason this restaurant has been in business 70 years. The clam chowder was great and our server Melanie was just as good. Enjoy the view and the food!

Woke up & drove to morro bay, with the dog (his first road trip!) looking for a place to get a drink. Not much open, that's dog friendly AND to get a drink in town, at 8am! Dorn's was the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!! Great Bloody Mary's, on the deck. The server suggested a side... More

Great breakfast on a Thurs, tasty coffee, nice Bloody Mary, Denver Omelette was more filling than egg and that's no complaint! Hash browns were meh. Terrific service. Tried to return over the weekend and, as expected, there was a 45 minutes wait. Yikes!

We always go here when we come to Morro Bay. Broiled snapper for dinner was delicious, as were the scalloped potatoes and sauteed veggies. French bread to begin is hot and wonderful. Iced tea is good. They have nice water views from most tables. Too full for dessert, so can't comment on​ that. Be sure to grab a spoonful of... More
