Fried Chicken Dinner - Yum!

I enjoy a good fried chicken dinner. The boysenberry preserves/jam was excellent on the biscuits. I am looking forward to my next trip there.

That, and it is of the Original buildings of Knott's Berry Farm ( it even says that on the place mat)... Food wise: The fried chicken is hands down the... More

Came many times over my lifetime. Was a little disappointed. Chicken was good, potatoes and gravey excellent, rolls disappointing, boysenberry pie outstanding. Seems like it use to be a bargin price, not so much now. Really needs a good cleaning or a renovation.

We've been coming to Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant for almost 30 years. On our last visit, the outside temperature was 90 degrees - and the temperature inside the restaurant was about the same. If I am going to a sit down restaurant that charges almost $20 for the select dinner - I expect an atmosphere that is at least tolerable.... More

I've lived in S. California nearly all my life and been to Knott's several times, but not in the last 5 years. Our first clue something was very wrong was the carpet was sticky. Then looking up, the ceiling tiles were coming apart...the place has gone down hill. The chicken was outstanding, but it ends there. The servers were in... More

What can I say except this is the best homestyle chicken ever!! Should have waited to see the portion sizes before we ordered...so couldn't finish it all but the great staff are more than happy to give you a take home container...

The chicken is delicious. Best I have had in a long time. Large pieces and great side dishes, baked beans, green beans and mashed potatoes. Large rolls that are really good. You get your money's worth here.

Just like it was when I was a kid. Loved the chicken legs....garden salad was really basic. Little bread rolls were awesome. Serves beer.
