I always love going to Mrs K's, but the last 2 times I have noticed that while the chicken is still served hot and with a light crispy coating, it seems to lack some of the savory flavor that I remember so well. My guess is that someone made the decision to reduce the salt. They need to go back... More

We have been eating at the chicken house as long as I can remember. The chicken is great, service is not. Unfortunately as I bragged to a family member that we were going to Knott's Scary Farm (which is awesome!) and were dining at the chicken house, the return text was of a news article stating the chicken house was...

I've literally been visiting Knotts for over 5 decades and decided it was time for a nostalgic trip to the west coast. Mrs. Knotts Chicken dinner was on the top of the list. I was afraid things had changed, I was delighted to know it hadn't and the biscuits were tender and delicious, the chicken and dumplings were awesome and... More

Every time I come down to Knott's for work. Me and my fellow drivers eat here. We don't eat all day just so we can get Mrs Knott's Chicken Dinner. We always have left over for later. Best Chicken Dinner I have EVER had. The rolls are so good. Just talking about it makes me want some.. Its been a... More

We ate at Mrs. Knott's on October 1st . I have to agree with some of the other reviews. The restaurant really needs a cleaning and updating. Everything is probably original and really shows it. I would think just a cleaning of carpets would help . The waitress's uniforms kind of match the wallpaper. The service was great, food was... More

As part of our Nostalgic trip back to the West coast... We could never pass up a stop for Mrs. Knott's famous Chicken Dinner. Food was amazing and tasted just the way I remembered. Loved the large portions and the wonderful service, so glad nothing has changed... :)

We have enjoyed eating at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant multiple times. Tonight as such was just one of a series of visits. As always, the chicken dinner is good. We had it with salad, rhubarb, corn, rolls, chicken (of course) followed by pie. We also had ice tea. Its always fun to come here and the place was full... More

My grandson and I wanted to enjoy a nice dinner after spending the day at the park, and before heading back to our hotel. Our waitress was very nice, but I WAS a little perturbed she didn't tell me what a HUGE meal I was about to be presented. Goodness sakes...it was enough to feed three people!! Yes, the chicken...

Fluffy biscuits with real butter and boysenberry jam? I'm there. Perfect moist, flavorful fried chicken plus cream gravy on whipped potatoes... get the kid's portion, the adult meals are way, way too big.
