I've been going to Dorns for decades and it certainly never disappoints. Last week we went there with another couple and the fresh, local halibut was to die for. Love the nostalgia and the setting. We'll be back...!

Good place to have dinner and watch a sunset over the bay. Service was good and food was too. My husband loved the pasta pomedoro.

An old reliable that seems to be slipping - breakfast mediocre. Quite disappointing after many years of above average meals.
