Dorn's is an older established restaurant in Morro Bay. The view of Morro rock and the bay must be the best in town. We had dinner as the sun was setting behind Morro rock. The service was very good as was the seafood. The snapper dish that I had was excellent and very tasty. Two others had sole that was also very good. The creame brulee desert was also very good. This restaurant has been here a long time and has earned a very good reputation.

After being away for almost a year, I raved about this place and invited friends and family to breakfast this past week. We ordered. The servers were not very pleasant and the service was far below last year's great service. I ordered the cheese omelet hoping it had improved. It hadn't and even looked bad. Can't go wrong with the pancakes. Coffee needs to be upgraded. Also the dinnerware is looking it age. Lots of wear and tear. Needs some money pumped back into business. Oh, the views are terrific. Also the servers need a pep talk. Won't be back for awhile.

We lived in Morro Bay for ten years and this was our favorite place for clam chowder. On a visit back, we headed for Dorn's hoping it would be just as good as we remembered. It and the delicious sourdough bread were exactly the same - wonderful and so filling it makes a good meal without it costing a fortune. And did I mention the view? It's great!

The fried starters were both over cooked. My fish dish was very good and cooked properly. My wife's fish was under cooked and therefore not that great. She could not finish it but to the credit of our waitress, she took it off the bill. I would consider giving them a second chance if we go back to Morro Bay.
