We ate at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant the day after Christmas after a long day at the amusement park. The Park was packed so the front of the line pass was worth it. Back to the the restaurant, it was getting late and we heard about the chicken and decided to eat there. The line to get inside was... More

The restaurant is currently closed for renovations, which is good as the room is a bit tired. The fried chicken is excellent, but the other menu items (rolls, mashed potatoes, veggies) were merely average. Value is merely average for quality of food vs price paid. On the other hand, it is a restaurant at a theme park rather than fine... More

went here for a bite to eat after a day at Knotts farm, the chicken was good and the service was also very good. Maybe a little over priced for what you get but you are in the middle of a tourist spot so it can only be expected... 8/10 would go again

First of all the restaurant is closed so we got the chicken to go, which I was told is the same. OK, the mashed potatoes are good, but they should more appropriately be called "mashed butter with some potatoes." If you like a mouthful of butter, and I do, you will like these. The corn was the same - swimming... More

After a fun morning touring Knott's Berry Farm (which I hadn't been to since 1967!) my husband and I were very hungry and decided that this was the perfect place to have a late lunch (on 10/19/15.) The atmosphere is hospitable in a country-southern kind of way. The tables were kind of close together and there were several large family... More

As stated, Mrs Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant is currently closed for renos. The fried chicken, though, is available just down the block at a "Stay or Go" restaurant. The food was good and the service fast. Very conveniently located just outside the gate of the Berry Farm.

No need to sit here and read about this historical eatery. Get up and GO! In fact, if you don't, your family will never know what good old fashioned American food and service was like many decades ago.

We waited over an hour for a table, but we expected that. I was disappointed over the selections we were offered. I'm not a fried chicken person, but I had the chicken tenders-an appetizer. I also asked for ranch dressing on the side. I suspect the dressing was spoiled as it tasted awful. The chicken was overlooked and dry. My... More
