Sat outside on the deck on this beautiful sunny October morning, overlooking Moro Rock and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast served by Joy. Never been disappointed when we eat here.

Classy restaurant with great food. The burger is huge and the french fries are delicious. The prices are a little higher than mid range but still a good value. The view of Morro Rock is impressive. I would definitely go there again!

Good food and wonderful atmosphere. Our window seat overlooked the harbor. My wife had the salmon, poached, and our son had the seafood medley. Highly recommend. $$

Half way from San Francisco to LA we stopped overnight in Morro Bay. What a quaint little town. We stopped at Dorn's for brunch and sat outside. The food was delicious and the view spectacular! A sunny day with seals in the ocean.
