The traditional Knott's chicken dinner is still served but the setting is all different. The entire space has been remodeled so the process of getting in is a lot smoother. Each of the rooms has a different look and feel from the others and there is now also a bar. The menu seems slightly different, maybe smaller than the past,... More

Walter Knott began developing this property in the early 1900's. Our family used to eat at their Knott's Chicken Restaurant regularly. If you eat there, you get FREE Parking, very close to the Restaurant too.....

This was the least busy that I have ever seen Mrs. Knott's. We were seated immediately and our waiter came right away for our drink order. After we placed our food order the food started coming fast and furious. I felt like we weren't eating fast enough for the staff. Biscuits, soup, salad, main courses ... We felt a bit... More

I remember loving this place as a kid and more recently when I took my son there in 2009. I took my wife there for her first visit while we visited Knotts Berry Farm. While the Ghost Town at the park has upped its game and the merger with Cedar Fair has been a success... The "renovation" of the famous... More

Had the chicken dinner. Food was outstanding. The best fried chicken ever. The sweet pickle chips were to die for. Great food and great service.

We are staying at knotts berry hotel and after reading reviews thought we'd try here. Food is lovely but very huge!!! (We are English and it is very different to what we get back home) For 21.99 you get soup and salad. (Soup is gorgeous!) Cabbage or sweet corn. (Corn was a little buttery for me) Traditional 'biscuits' with butter... More

They've done a good job with the much needed renovation. Food and service was very good, recommended if you want a proper lunch in the park. This is the only proper restaurant there.

Growing up my family visited Knott's Berry Farm Chicken Dinner Restaurant and both my wife and I had fond memories of this restaurant. We took our grandchildren to the park and then dinner at the chicken dinner restaurant. Were we in for a Big disappointment first off the place was so cool inside we had to get our coats out...

We had read several poor reviews on tripadvisor but decided to try out the new remodel anyway. We're glad we did. Our party of 6 tasted much of what was on the menu and everything was very good.I found out that up until the remodel, they were using Mrs Knott's original chicken fryer which was frequently breaking down - thus...

The whole vibe at this place is good. Nice front end staff, good wait staff and the food is crazy good. If you like chicken fried just right, welcome home. The rolls and boysenberry preserves served before the meal are great and the dinner itself is worth any wait you may have to endure. Whole family loved it and the... More
