I have heard so much about this place and finally met a group of friends here. First, let me say that I worked in food service for quite a few years and know how hard it is to keep things up when you have a high-volume of people. But this place really needs a good renovation to make it easier... More

Well worth the cost and even better if you can get the meal in a package deal with tickets. You wont be disappointed. The food is delicious!

The Fried Chicken is amazing. Juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside exactly the way it should be. The biscuits were fresh and hot to the table. Love the Boysenberry Jam cannot get enough of it. We definitely will be back, maybe for a company Christmas Party!?!

We love going to Mrs. Knotts Chicken Dinner Restaurant... Until the last visit this Labor Day weekend. 1 star for the biscuits and jam... At least these still taste great. Biscuits are soft, moist and always served warm. And I love their Boysenberry jam. 1 star for our server. He's very attentive and always asking if we need anything else... More

This IS NOT the place I remember growing up. It is extremely dirty; so dirty that your chair literally gets stuck on the dirty sticky rug when you try to push them in. The carpet was black and sticky from dirt. I should have left when I sat down and it stunk so bad I commented to the waitress who... More

I hadn't been here in years. I recently went with friends from out of town, telling them how good the food was. I was disappointed. The biscuits are still great! But the rest of the dinner, wasn't much to brag about. My broiled chicken was kind of dry. Only 3 red potatoes on my plate. Drinks are almost $4 for... More

Wonderful family style diner, the fried chicken is very good. Mashed potatoes, keep the gravy on the side. Well worth the price.
