Say it with me...SCRUMPTIOUS!

Decided to finally check this place out for myself after hearing good things. Service was prompt and attentive. Food was on point! I had the fried chicken breast and I must say that was the most tender, juicy, and flavorful brest I'd ever tasted. Had the black eye peas and collard greens for... read more

Well had family in town and speed into McKnights 1 hour before close. Decided to try something new. The pasta medley. Penne pasta in an alfredo butter sauce with sausage crumbles, chicken and HUGE shrimp, broccoli, peppers and dashes of cayenne pepper. Absolutely out of this world! Totally impressive in presentation, originality and most importantly taste. Great portion. Found my... More

I bought a deal for this place when I was in Florida visiting Universal and Disney. I tried to use the deal same day but they told me that I would need to make a reservation. I made a reservation for a Monday at 3PM and it was practically COMPLETELY empty. The place is nice and clean with attentive service.... More

I had the chicken and waffles and a couple of sides. Compared to the high quality of my family cooks, I rate this experience as very good. I only wish that more of the menu items were available... I would've had more food!

I was part of a group of 36 people who attended a luncheon at McKnights, different ethnic backgrounds, different tastes - everyone loved the food. There was something for everyone, but most important, the food tastes fresh, the collard greens, potato salad, yams and macaroni & cheese are all such great tasting sides that you almost want to make them...

I had almost the exact same experience as Amy F. in Orlando :( If I had the option to not give any stars, I would have chosen that. Upon arrival, we were denied a table because we didn't have a reservation. A slight oversight on my part I admit. We asked if we could make a reservation for later and... More

HORRRRRRIIIIBBBLLLEE!!!!!! If I could give negative stars this place would get it! Bought the living social voucher and from the start there were so many limitations. First, my fiancé is a firefighter, and this restaurant has limited hours for a working couple. This restaurant is located in a very bad neighborhood, and has no parking. Finally had a day off...

Let me first start off by saying after reading some negative reviews I almost opted not to venture out to this restaurant who wants a let down especially when you're hungry. I decided what the heck lets see whats really going on. When I arrived the parking lot was semi-full, so I thought to myself they must being doing something... More

I went to McKnight's and it was pretty empty. However, everything was clean and the waitress was very nice. I ordered the chicken and waffles, which was so fresh and delicious. For dessert, I ordered the Fried Snicker's. Definitely the best dessert I've ever had. The owner and chef (McKnight) even came out of the kitchen and talked to us.... More
