Just ... Awful.

From start to finish - horrific. Terrible smell upon entering the restaurant (old chicken and drains), the female servers are wearing awful 'little house on the prairie' smocks which are probably meant to be cutesy, but just look shockingly bad. The chicken should be crispy - ours came out soggy... read more

It's almost not worth writing this but we'd been looking forward to going as it was near to where we were staying. But we opened the door to an awful stench, sorry! I literally gagged and we made an about turn. Totally offputting.

We had a great time at Mrs. Knott's Restaurant. Dinner was delicious, staff was courteous. We'll definitely eat there on our next trip to Knott's Berry Farm.

its expensive if your on a budget but get it to go and enjoy your chicken dinner in the patio area by the sandwich shop ,just ask for plates and napkins and enjoy at a fraction of the restaurant price!

Feeding for kids on a budget at an amusement park can be a challenge. But Knott's chicken to go restaurant is our go to place at the park. Chicken is great, only once in the past year was it burnt. Sides are filling but can be bland at times, nothing salt and pepper can't fix. Plates and cups can be... More

My family and I would have our Sunday brunch here on occasions. We don't do it too often because we could easily devour over 2,000 calories in one visit...just too much to choose from and the chicken is yummy!!!

Even though it's called the chicken dinner restaurant we came here for lunch. My friend and I split the fried chicken dinner. This dinner is enormous. It comes with 4 pieces of chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, and soup/salad. I had chicken noodle soup which was quite tasty. We split the chicken but were both given full servings of corn and... More

I'm used to feeling like I have been robbed when I eat at an amusement park...NOT HERE!!! This place served my family good food, with quality and friendly service, for a great price.

Ate here as a child in the 60's. Don't think the dinner has changed. Limited portion size options was a big deal with us. Didn't want 4 pieces of chicken, after salad with rhubarb (my husband had the heavy salty chicken soup).Great mashed potatoes and gravy. But with BUTTERED corn, or my salty bacon infused cabbage. The boysonberry pie good.... More

We ate here during a recent trip to the area. The service was not great. The staff was friendly, but everything was slow. We waited 15 min for someone to come over and take our order once we were sat. We were also there for an early dinner, before 5p. The food was OK. I was expecting good things from... More
