We were out with friends on a beautiful night and the view here is a huge draw but my meal was a disappointment. It was a busy Monday night and drink and food service was slow. The sour dough bread was delicious and there is a great wine list with many local wines. They were very accommodating in switching a... More

Dorn's is a good breakfast place. I had Huevos Ranchos for brunch and it was great. I have had pancakes there and they are excellent. They have really nice thick cut bacon, too. We like Dorn's for breakfast.

Over years my wife and I have spent a number of weekends in Morro Bay. It's such a nice and relaxing spot along the California Central Coast and really our favorite. We were introduced to Dorn's back in the middle 1980's on our first trip and every time since we have made it a point to eat at least one... More

Two girlfriends and I had breakfast here over Memorial Day weekend and it was an excellent meal! The homemade corned beef hash was the best I've had and the Bloody Marys were exceptional (at $10 each one would hope so!) Wonderful service and a great view as well. You can't go wrong with Dorn's at breakfast.

We had a group of about 35, so we had our own room. The food was excellent, the service outstanding. The crab Louis was on of the best I've ever had, and the fish and chips are crunchy and delicious!

We stayed in Morro Bay for our anniversary in June 2013. We ate there for breakfast lunch and dinner at least once for each while we were there for a week. There are many good restaurants in Morro Bay some have been there since I was a kid and lived there. But I have to say the Breakers has everything:... More
