Service was quite quick, drinks nice and food ok. Generally a safe meal choice and an average experience. Also thought it was good you get a discount with Knotts berry annual pass,though we don't have one as were from England I thought that was a nice touch.

We had the appetizer platter to share which consisted of pretzels, mozzarella cheese sticks and some freaking hot spicy wings. Sauces were great especially the beer-infused cheese sauce with the super flavorful pretzels! The whiskey cake had hints of alcohol and the vanilla ice cream complemented the sweetness of everything though we found the butterscotch sauce to be on the... More

My husband, sister, niece and I had lunch here the day we went to Knott's. The food was awesome and they had Angry Orchard on tap. Much better than eating at the park!

Stopped in for dinner after a long day in Knott's Berry Farm. Seated straight away even though lots of tables still to be cleaned - we'd obviously missed an afternoon rush!! Varied menu with all the usual suspects of steak, burgers, pasta - both pastas served with shrimp which would have been nice to have had an option to switch... More

The food is always good they're prepared really good this stuff is really nice but if you have a disabled senior you sort of end up waiting at the one by Knott's Berry Farm they cater to the younger crowd made my dad feel very uncomfortable he's a diabetic so we needed to eat something and the ladies still said...

Only used TGFI on one occasion but the menu was varied, the restaurant was clean and the staff were efficient.We were fortunate that we chose a quiet time and so there was no waiting for a table and the food was delivered to our table quickly.

We visited this restaurant which was just outside of Knotts Berry Farm after my daughter's cheer competition. I was advised of a 2 hour + wait time. We noticed that there was an empty patio seating area. Staff advised there was a large party coming in an hour. Ended up waiting for less than one hour and being seated on... More

Stopped in after going to the amusement park. We're created as though we were best friends, and service at the table was just as good. Food prepared well, and right up to their standards.
