Mrs. Knott's chicken is one of the staples of California dining. Being born and raised in the area, I have 50+ years of tasty memories. Be ready for a wait. If you want to avoid the lines, head to the chicken to go counter in the front.

We went to dine before going into knotts scary farm. The wait in the line for seating wasn't bad for a Saturday night. We had a party of eight and the wait was no more than 45 minutes. Our server was very good and attentive. We had the family style fried chicken dinner which included a boysenberry pie. Well we had so much food we took home about half the meal and a whole pie! Reviewers posted t was thee best fried chicken in southern California. It was good chicken but I wouldn't say thee best. We asked for the boysenberry butter for our mini biscuits! Super yummmmmm! That took the show. Overall good for and great service!

We used to drool just thinking about coming here to eat. The food and restaurant in general, is disgusting! How could they change Mrs. Knott's recipes? I dont EVER remember ther NOT being a huge line of people waiting in line for a table...now there's no one and we know why. Don't waste your time or $$$. SO SAD! Shame on you Cedar Fair people!

Knott's famous chicken dinner restaurant is still going strong after so many years. The portions are large enough to share between two people thus making it a value meal. While the chicken plate is famous, there are other staples worth trying. Otherwise, the food is good for what it is. The only thing is the queue to get in - it's by far the slowest moving line in KBF. The solution to the long line is go early or skip it for another visit. The famous boysenberry pie makes for a pleasant dessert.
