At best this is an average place. I had the chicken salt....I mean soup, yikes, man it was salty! We also had Caesar salad, and a two piece chicken lunch. This came with mashed potatoes and corn. The chicken was good, nice and crunchy, and juicy inside, though that was under seasoned, of course maybe the soup blew out my... More

If you have been to Knott's for their Chicken Dinner before they remodeled you will be disappointed in the meal that they serve you now. Just don't want folks who are looking forward to the same "chicken" dinner that was so good to be disappointed.

I love their fried chicken! We have been known to pick up a bucket and take it next day to another theme park for lunch. Large quantity for a lot less than KFC. Got a pie this time too and it was great!

Great chicken dinner. Loved the new remodel of the place. As always biscuits and jam were the best. Tried the boysenberry butter and loved it! Tart and buttery! Had to take home biscuits!

We went for lunch and the food was amazing and plentiful. Service was also terrific and i would recommend eating here at least once. The pie is to die for!

This was great. Best fried chicken we have had in ages. Friendly service, fast and delicious. Nice meal. Biscuits, soup, chicken dinner with potatoes and gravy, pie for desert. Also of note- we had a gluten free guest and they were handled extremely well Whole family is looking forward to a return visit.

This is a classic restaurant from my childhood that I returned to as an adult. The menu is simple but the fried chicken, biscuits, potatoes, and pie still are great. Not 5 stars because the restaurant is quite dated and super loud (lots of large groups). If you go to Knotts you got to try it out.

We went at a not busy time so did not have to wait. Were seated right away and then sat for a good 10 minutes watching servers buzz by left and right. I finally flagged someone down and asked if anyone was waiting on this table.He went off and found someone, who was not very happy about waiting on us.... More

The best fried chicken anywhere. They also have Meals to go. Juicy white meat with a perfect crunch. Homemade mash potatoes and gravy were out of this world. I'd drive the 30 minutes for more.

Four generation family enjoyed break from rides here - chicken pot pie, fried chicken, and chicken and dumplings. Dumplings a little heavy but otherwise all very good. Starting with biscuits and that wonderful boysenberry preserves made everyone happy! Generous portions and very friendly service. Good value and great time to share the history of this special place (Depression restaurant grows... More
