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

This food was everything my Aunt and Uncle told us about. The chicken was wonderful and the rhubarb desert was wonderful as well. I liked the fact we could leave Knotts Berry Farm eat lunch then walk 100 feet to return to the park. fun day good food

Nope. Seriously, no. I pretty much judge a fried chicken place based on the moistness of the white meat. Mrs Knotts failed miserably. Even the dark meat was not moist. All the food here was basically cafeteria food and I would also go as far as calling it hospital food. The one thing that was halfway decent was my husband's... More

The food was terrible, the wait was horrendous, and the service was mediocre at best. Keep your money, and go down the street to McDonald's

Eating here after 30 years I am eight years old again with the family, except this time I'm the dad. The old fashion dining room, the great biscuits/mash w/gravy/very good fried chicken and the largest salad I've ever seen filled me both gastronomically and sentimentally. Maybe it'll be another thirty years until the next time and maybe my son will... More

The restaurant lived up to all the hype - friendly and quick service, hot, delicious food. Chicken was sooo good! And we also loved the cabbage and boysenberry pie. Yummmm

While our server was pleasant and provided us with great service, we found the food to be unappetizing, bland, and nearly inedible. Our advice would be to go anywhere else.
