For great clam chowder try Dorn's. Paired with the fresh house made bread. and a small salad, this is a fantastic meal. We've done taste tests against Splash Cafe, Dorn's Winner!

We've been visiting Morro Bay for 20+ years, and have always found Dorn's to be consistent and fabulous. The breakfast selections are many; service is always good. Beautiful views of the Rock + the bay also add to the near-perfect ambience.

The view is marvelous. The crab & prawn cocktails and the fried calamari were very good. The Caesar salad and clam chowder were OK, but nothing special. The salad was just the outer leaves of the romaine, which were bitter and the clam chowder was...More
