Just interesting history of restaurant makes visit worthwhile. Food good, sizeable meals, HUGE salad. Friendly staff. Ambience: wanted to have a horse to tie up outside and a cowboy hat for the hook on the edge of the booth.

Above all I need to compliment our waitress. I thought that I had run into a long lost grandmother!!! She was so nice, cracked a few jokes, and even offered to take the strawberry rhubarb soup back if I did not like it and get some chicken soup. Amazing!!! The food was pretty good. This is not KFC fried chicken,... More

Nothing fancy, but the chicken is mighty tasty. I don't think you have to go into the park to eat at the restaurant.

Being born and raised in Buena Park, I have been going to Knott's my whole life, sadly the quality of food has suffered, Mrs. Knott had a great product and for a while Cedar Fair did a good job duplicating it, but they no longer care about quality just the almighty dollar. 3 out of 4 times in the last...

Had lunch with my family on a visit to long beach. They were excited to visit this place for lunch. The fried chicken was very good, but everything else was horrible. Instead of serving so much food they should work on improving the flavor. I had the BBQ chicken salad - a huge plate of ice berg (with some Romaine)... More

We've gone to Knott's Bery Restaurant for Thanksgiving several times over the past few years and enjoy having the fried chicken breakfast (mashed potatoes, two pieces of fried chicken, biscuits, gravy, and I think a vegetable) to start the day. It is a hearty breakfast. There are other things you can order off the menu, but, we mainly go for... More

After many years we decided to go back because we remembered how good it was. Our mouths were watering in anticipation. Unfortunately our experience was a huge letdown. The chicken was mediocre at best, the mashed potatoes were gummy. I make much better. The corn was nothing special. The rhubarb compote was average. The salad with blue cheese dressing was... More

As a kid (50+ years ago) I remember eating at Mrs. Knott's, it is still a very good meal. Fairly short wait for our large party (10), after seating service was quick, friendly and attentive. Come hungry as the portions are very generous. The chicken dinner includes Rhubarb (delicious) or soup (also good), salad, Lot's of chicken with mashed potatoes... More
