The best fried chicken anywhere. They also have Meals to go. Juicy white meat with a perfect crunch. Homemade mash potatoes and gravy were out of this world. I'd drive the 30 minutes for more.

Four generation family enjoyed break from rides here - chicken pot pie, fried chicken, and chicken and dumplings. Dumplings a little heavy but otherwise all very good. Starting with biscuits and that wonderful boysenberry preserves made everyone happy! Generous portions and very friendly service. Good value and great time to share the history of this special place (Depression restaurant grows... More

Although it is advertised all over the web, Mrs. Knott's no longer has a senior buffet nor does the restaurant offer their senior discount anymore. I was really disappointed.

It had been at least 20 years since my last visit & my husband had never been. He loves fried chicken. We went for lunch the day after Valentine's Day & made an 11:30 reservation thinking there could be crowds. There were no crowds & our waitress said it just doesn't get as busy as it used to. We ordered... More

Other than the relatively expensive price for a lunch meal, we did enjoy our experience at Mrs Knott's chicken Dinner. What I liked: Quick, friendly service. Nice, casual "old-fashioned" look restaurant. A few different food options, including some of the classics. Everything was excellent from a taste perspective (well, as far as chicken dinners are concerned) What to watch for/could... More

Ever since they remodeled this place, the food quality had turned for the worst. They no longer serve breakfast.

The ambience remains the same which is nice. It is pricey but you have to expect that at an amusement park. The classic chicken dinner definitely doesn't taste as good as it used to but it wasn't horrible. The staff is very nice and friendly. If you don't get there early, prepare to wait.

Recently remodeled with new bar area. Chicken dishes very good and enough for two to share. Some specials come with drink and desert. Wait was moderate, about twenty minutes.
