Nice pleasant place away from the tourist joints with a very good menu and cuisine. Up a hill off the main strip, with good views. Established well before Morro Bay became a seaside attraction.

We were down visiting Morro Bay for my 50th birthday. The food, service and view were top notch! It is the oldest restaurant in the area and they do it right.......

I grew up going to Dorns for breakfast. My grandfather would take me in the mornings before the fog burned off the bay. I would drink hot chocolate while he had his coffee. Oh yeah, and the food is great. The service is great. The view is spectacular. With so many places in Morro Bay that serve great food, it's hard to distinguish one place from another. . . that is, until you consider the history and tradition of Dorn's. It is a Morro Bay institution and worth your business.

We were seated promptly and received friendly service. The busboy didn't have much English though, and poured coffee rather than tea, and didn't understand our request for more hot water. The omelettes were fresh and delicious as was the home made bran muffin.

Our daughter has been at Cal Poly for a few years and we have visited many times. We must have been to all the restaurants in SLO, this is our new favorite. Breakfast on Sunday morning is wonderful , make reservations, Dinner too is great with a nice bar inside. We had the halibut and a steak dinner both were equally wonderful. Well worth our hard earned money , eat like a Queen!
