there is nothing not to like. All three of us had the chicken dinner with all the sides-wow. I could hardly finish but it sure was worth it. Great value

We waited in a line for around 40 min. And then go seated way in the back. It was hot back there and I noticed the carpet was dirty. This restaurant is not like what I remember from when I was young. The fried chicken is good. But everything must be already made in the back. Cause our party of... More

Thank goodness the wait wasn't long and we were able to walk up and get a table within 5 minutes. The staff was not that welcoming, which is fine with me; I understand the nature of the service industry and not everyone can be "on" everyday. However, there was no excuse for the food, the dinnerware and overall presentation of... More

Boysenberry pie was great. Yummy food but chicken sure was salty. Good prices and large meal deals for families.

So we take the family to Knott's Berry Farm during the Christmas break and decided to have dinner at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant. Word was this was the place to dine while at the park. The line to get in wrapped around the building so on one hand I figured this was the place to be, and on the... More

First....the good... The chicken was and juicy and flavorful, the biscuits were good as well. Now for the bad....as soon as I saw the waitresses wearing those ghastly outfits, I wanted to turn and run. I understand them wanting to have a sort of throw back/retro/country vibe but no one during any time period has ever worn anything like that... More

I so wanted to try this place because we love fried chicken! Even with all the negative reviews I so wanted to try it out. We went thinking we weren't because of the price and negative reviews but in the morning walking into the park we realized they had this huge family package we can take to go that can... More

Love going to this place, every now and then we get lucky and the lines are not super long but the wait is totally worth while better than lining up to Space Mountain at Disneyland. Try their homemade chicken pot pie and their homemade biscuits are too die for. Don't get frustrated with the line, it only means they have... More

I believe the regular Chicken dinner at Mrs. Knott's is $18.00 but if you are a senior and go between the hours of 3-5 p.m. you can get the dinner for $12.00.....I chose the chicken fried steak this time and it was delicious. Service is always good....food is hot and quickly brought to your table. You can choose your main... More

Went to Mrs. Knott's for dinner while staying at the Knott's hotel which was in walking distance. Restaurant is part of the Marketplace which has other eateries and gift shops. Parking is free for one hour with restaurant validation or for 3 hours with an additional receipt from a store. We got there before 6pm when the amusement park closed... More
