They have remodeled extensively since we last visited and the new restaurant is stunning! Beautiful and charming décor. The pricing on the basic dinner has increased, but so have the portion sizes. I wish we had known ahead of time just how much food we were ordering since we couldn’t take anything back to the hotel with us. One dinner... More

They have the best fried chicken and chicken pot pies. It is a little pricey but it is worth it. They use the same recipes as they did many years ago as when they first opened.

Wow, what a disappointment!!! They have remodeled. Very expensive, and servings smaller. Soft drinks almost $5.00 a piece. We drive from the Inland Empire about twice a year to have lunch. Don't think we will come back. Not the homey atmosphere there used to be. Had to ask twice for extra water. Servers far and few between. Added sides were... More

Dinner here was so good. The restaurant has been refurbished and there is so much room now. We did not have a wait to be seated and our food came out fast. The food of course is Delicious and worth the trip to eat there. We will be back.

We hadn't been here for 30 years, and took our grown sons back for Mrs Knott's chicken dinner. We went early on Friday evening after a day at the park and were seated immediately. My husband and one son had the chicken dinner, and my other son and I had the chicken pot pie. You get several sides plus biscuits... More

Great food. Great service. And the remodeled interior is a great improvement. My favorite...the way Mrs. Knotts served it. Chicken, rubbarb, French dressing on the salad, cabbage, and the best biscuits in Buena Park. My wife has tried several other dishes, and everyone of those was also good.

We took a break from the fun at Knott's Berry Farm to eat here, mainly because it is iconic. The menu is really limited, and pretty much all chicken items. It is expensive but lunch was slightly cheaper. (thankfully) We got the Fried Chicken Lunch which came with 2 pieces of chicken, mashed potatoes, choice of corn or slaw and... More

Stopped for dinner before going into the park and we waited about a half hour but it was well worth the wait. Marvyn our server was on the ball and took care of us very well. The chicken was cooked perfectly, the biscuits were phenomenal, we could have made a meal with those alone. The berry pie and the apple... More
