It pains me to write this, but what on Earth has happened to the wonderful service one could always expect from Knott's Chicken Dinner employees? We so were looking forward to eating here. My parents have gone here for over 40 years, for about 20 total times over the years. We've been spoiled by great service. We visited on a... More

It was a short walk to the restaurant. The food was average, they did give you a lot of food but I felt it was a little too expensive.

We hadn't had the chicken dinner in years. We were in the area so we couldn't miss it. $17.99 for the chicken dinner which includes chicken noodle soup, salad, biscuits, 4 pieces of chicken, corn, mashed potatoes,and pie.

Ordered the chicken dinner, food was delicious, staff was friendly, not a single complaint. After a day at Knotts Berry Farm this was a must for dinner. We went on a Tuesday evening the wait was under 30 mins. I understand eveybody has their own expectations and standards, for us it was a not a let down!

We decided to bypass the extremely long line to sit in the actual restaurant and we got the Chicken Dinner To-go instead, same food but cheaper. It was very good, but I think the best part was definitely the Boysenberry Pie. Would not pay the restaurant price for this meal, it is way better than KFC, as in better quality... More

I thought I would be giving a minority report but recent reviews seem to agree. Nothing special here. Large enough portions but average quality and no seasoning. A very hot day on our visit and NO RESPITE from the heat inside. We almost said forget it and went a across the street to TGI Fridays. This place looks like it... More

The Chicken dinner was good. It wasn't what I expected. I assumed it would be a cooked chicken dinner. It was fried chicken. I could have gone to KFC and got fried chicken just as good. It seemed overly priced.

Everyone got the chicken dinner which comes with quite a bit of chicken and get your sides also. I ended up just getting mashed potatoes and corn. Not enough of the sides to justify the money. The biscuits were okay, they give butter and jams, but I couldn't seem to say either was better. The biscuit overpowers the jam/butter and... More

The biscuits alone are worth coming here for! We had breakfast here and enjoyed everything we had. Some of the selections from our table included the chicken hash breakfast with eggs. It includes hash browns and apple compote. So much food but so so so good. My mom had the Belgium waffle with strawberries and whipped cream, she said it... More
