Every time we visit the Anaheim area, we make a point to go to Knotts Berry Farm for their Chicken Dinner. As usual, the food is plentiful and service good. You get so much for what you pay. We tend to always get the Fried Chicken dinner which comes with Salad, Cherry Rhubarb or another option... read more

I was amazed at the general condition of the place, the furniture was in a very poor state of repair and the carpet was absolutely disgusting, especially leading from the kitchen, it was black with filth, the booth we were sitting in was falling apart and the general decor was totally decrepit, this place needs a full refit. The food... More

Our lunch was so yummy, can't wait to go again. We had the fried chicken!! It was so moist, cooked to perfection. Our server was the best, always there to refill our drinks, excellent service all around! If you go to Knotts Berry Farm, you have to go to Mrs Knotts Chicken restaurant!

Perfectly fried chicken, well seasoned and amazingly crispy. Mashed potatoes and gravy are heaven. the Boysenberry pie and ice cream is great too. this is a place that you cannot pass by. the best food in California.

We needed a place for dinner and didnt want to leave the park so we settled on this. Don't judge the food by the retro atmosphere and decor! The food was consistently good, timely, and a throwback to my childhood. It had that made-from-scratch smell and texture. Worth the wait.

impromptu visit for dinner ...Mrs Knotts recipe has gone by the way side. got the chicken to go so we could eat outside because the air in the restaurant was not working. Corn was way over done and mushy Mashed potatoes were lacking flavor. Biscuits are good but portions are Extremely SMALL Chicken is not what it used to be.... More
