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

I have never been to Mrs. Knotts and not had to wait in line for a seat. Why the wait? Because we are all insane for Mrs. Knotts yummy food. Love, love, love this place. If you go, you must order the chicken dinner. It is their speciality. It is a ton of food and scrumptious. We always leave stuffed... More

The quality of the food was poor, the service slow and not overly friendly. The restaurant was hot and clammy... would not eat there again.

And amazing mashed potato too! A relaxing meal after a day of rides. Not very expensive either. Right outside the theme park.

Brought friends here before and enjoyed it - and as another reviewer said it is almost cafeteria like - big room with lots of tables - this particular trip - while the Chicken Dinner was as usual very tasty - lots of children acting up - this is not the fault of the restaurant but rather the parents - but...
