“Thanksgiving dinner at Knotts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2009

After a day in the park we ate at MKCDR. Wife had the Turkey dinner and I the fried chicken. Both a good value, and tasty. Struggled to finish but had to take the dessert home. Bottle of fairly good wine at a reasonable price. Glad we stopped by!

“What a major disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2009

We took our longtime friends, visiting from Missouri, here for a celebration. The food was mediocre and overpriced; the service just bearable. It appeared that many of the diners were locals or regulars and this was confusing; why would they return when there are so many better options available? Several of our friends (from Placentia and San Juan Capistrano) told us afterward that the restaurant's food and ambiance was no good from their recent visits; too bad this news came late. What may have been Cordelia Knott's pride and joy so many years ago has become a sad state of affairs in 2009. A corporate-owned restaurant serving bland corporate food to a captive audience. Our guests returned to Missouri this morning and I can safely surmise that they will discourage anyone visiting California from eating at Mrs. Knott's Restaurant. We certainly will.

“Mass produced food, poor quality and expensive. Dirty Restaurant.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2009

I went to this restaurant 20 years ago and had a fanatastic experience, so last month while in LA, I dragged the whole family there for a late lunch. We arrived at 3pm and needed to use the bathroom. This should have sent warning bells- it was filthy, there was a lady doing a 'spot clean', but it was years of dirt and grim. The place was shabby and dirty.
Being 3pm the restaurant was not overly busy, but our waiter seemed to be rushed off his feet as he would not cope with the three tables he had. The Food was over cooked and dry ( I told this to the waiter and he shugged his shoulders), the 'Biscuits' are bread rolls so why does everyone call them biscuits? the pie was "OK" but pastry was over cooked. Salads were disgusting. This was the worst meal and most expensive meal fo your trip to the US. AVOID. Go to Caliofrnia Pizza Kitchen instead!

“Mrs. Knotts' was a Good Way to End the Day at Knott's Berry Farm!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2009

We spent an entire Sunday in late July at KBF. It was a little after 5pm when we left the park and got in line at Mrs. Knott's. The food was good and the portions were big. I didn't have room for the pie, so we took it back to the hotel with us. We thought $15.95 (per person for adults) wasn't bad for everything we got. It was a good way to end the day at KBF!
