“Creepy Dirty”
Review of Dam Korner

Dam Korner
Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 June 2014

I ate here once and that was enough. The restaurant is run down, has dated decor (if you can call it decor), is poorly maintained and just seems very dirty. The roof of the restaurant looks like it could qualify as a grease super-fund cleanup site. I would not want to see what the kitchen looks like, considering all else I saw. I recommend you find somewhere else to eat--maybe Nelda's or Chef Sarape's.

The Dam Korner is our favorite place for breakfast when we are in the Lake Isabella area. It's an old fashion cafe with a counter and booths. Locals frequent the place and the servers know most of them by name. As mentioned in another review, visitors are warmly welcomed. We have only had breakfast there but the lunch menu looks good too. The omelettes are big and filling and the hash browns are crispy like they should be. The service is fast and efficient with Elaine shouting orders to the cook and teasing the regulars and Jessica and Madison taking orders and making sure the coffee cups are always full. Everybody is very friendly and the prices are very reasonable. The place is open for breakfast and lunch and gets busy on weekends. I highly recommend this wonderful little 'find' if you are in the area and hungry for a hot, tasty breakfast or lunch.

great way to start the day. good food and friendly people. The service is friendly, the food comes out fast and it is good and filling for breakfast. I've only had breakfast there, but usually eat there several times a year. This is not a health food restaurant and I mean that in a good way.

The Dam Korner is a family style, big horseshoe type counter and several individual booths. I go there when I'm in a hurry and need fast service and good food. People are very friendly there too. Nice place to eat.

This is a real gathering place for the locals, but vistors are also made to feel welcome. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but the service was very efficient, the prices reasonable, and the breakfast was filling and tasty. Breakfast has all of the usual options along with the more typically Southern option of biscuits and gravy. I had the bacon and cheese omelette, and every bite was full of bacon. Breakfast here was a great way to start the day before driving up into the Sequoia National Forest.
