When visitors to Morro Bay ask me for a dining recommendation, Dorn's is always at the top of my list. Of course it depends on person's budget, as Dorn's is not cheap, nor is it fast food. When you are in the mood to savor some excellent fare, served in an exceptionally charming atmosphere, then Dorn's is the pick of... More

Unfortunately, I was not impressed. For a place with such a great reputation (and such an expensive meal) it was truly disappointing. I ordered a rib eye steak medium rare because I like a tender steak, but mine came out tough and dry. I can't believe it was actually a rib eye - I've never had one so dry and... More

Best place in town for a perfect breakfast. Actually, any meal, but the breakfasts are great. Also has a full service bar in case you want to start with a really good bloody mary! Highly recommend if visiting Morro Bay, A favorite for locals too.

We enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. The service was very prompt, they seated us relatively quickly (we did not have a reservation), and the prices seemed to be very reasonable. We both had salads (we were not extremely hungry that evening), and the ingredients were fresh and appetizing. The salads were also larger than expected, so we had plenty of... More

Very nice setting and lovely service but food wasn't all that great - it was good - so for the price it was overpriced! One of our party got the veal and I was amazed at how little veal he did get but he got a lot of brussel sprouts! I got the fish and chips and it was good... More

The food is exceptional and worth the waiting to get a refill on your coffee. They're not to concerned about keeping your beverage full unless you drink booze otherwise you can stand naked screaming, still won't get your waitress attention. Otherwise the food is exceptional.......
