“Our favorite place to eat after a long day at Knotts Berry Farm”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

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 to the max. The decor is a bit dated. And the poor waitresses have to wear those hideous, unflattering, uniforms. Ugh! While you are waiting in line, read all of the super neat letters and signatures of famous people who have visited the restaurant. It sure does help pass the time. Nevertheless, the wait is soo worth it.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

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.

“Best Chicken”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

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

“Think it was an off day”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

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 still did not make for the atmosphere you would prefer for a meal - lots of food thrown on the floor by the kids and the staff looked tired and wanting the shift to be over - and service was slow this time around - so again think maybe it was an off day and I will be back again when I have out of town visitors that want to see the Parks and have a decent meal.
