Classy restaurant with great food. The burger is huge and the french fries are delicious. The prices are a little higher than mid range but still a good value. The view of Morro Rock is impressive. I would definitely go there again!

Good food and wonderful atmosphere. Our window seat overlooked the harbor. My wife had the salmon, poached, and our son had the seafood medley. Highly recommend. $$

Half way from San Francisco to LA we stopped overnight in Morro Bay. What a quaint little town. We stopped at Dorn's for brunch and sat outside. The food was delicious and the view spectacular! A sunny day with seals in the ocean.

Food was good, but nothing special and on the more pricey side. Other places nearby with good food for a more reasonable price. The restaurant itself was nice and the service was good.

For great clam chowder try Dorn's. Paired with the fresh house made bread. and a small salad, this is a fantastic meal. We've done taste tests against Splash Cafe, Dorn's Winner!

We've been visiting Morro Bay for 20+ years, and have always found Dorn's to be consistent and fabulous. The breakfast selections are many; service is always good. Beautiful views of the Rock + the bay also add to the near-perfect ambience.

We asked several locals where to have a good seafood dinner. To be honest, Dorns gets mixed reviews but we could not of been more pleasantly surprised. We ate out on the balcony where it is heated when chilly and the food was excellent. Very...More
