I made dinner reservations 2 weeks before the 14th and was able to get the time I wanted and the Patio location for dinner was just perfect. We enjoyed drinks and dinner while watching the sunset on Valentines Day evening. (our two 4 legged kids were also with us, pet friendly on the patio). The table was kicked up a... More

Went there for lunch. Good food, but watch out for the birds if you eat outdoors, like we did. Has a great view of the rock.

Have been coming to Dorn's for the last 10 years. If you are an eggs benedict fan....this is the place for you! It is only served on the weekends. The view is to die for also! :) Enjoy!

We took some family members out for breakfast while staying in SLO and they suggested we try Dorn's. We had reservations so we got right in at 10:00. I will say the view is decent and the breakfast faire was average but really made this trip so special was the tremendous lack of even normal service. Would you believe on... More

An easy walk from our hotel and recommended by the young lady at the desk in our hotel. Table overlooked the beach. The food was very good, but a tad speedy.

Whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner you can always count on fantastic service, a welcoming staff, and delicious, well-prepared meals. We have been going there for nearly forty years, our kids having "grown up" on Dorn's famous chocolate chip pancakes. Our wedding reception meal yesterday put a nice cap on a lifetime of fun meals at Dorn's.

Sitting at a window table looking over the bay at the Morro rock is a wonderful way to start anyday and that is before you order your breakfast. A Mediterranean omlette with a cup of fresh coffee and a bloody mary and you are ready for a day of sightseeing.
