We went back to the Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant after it reopened. The new remodel is great. Expanded dining areas, new bar, and much improved entrance/reception area. The new décor is very nice, it’s a much-needed improvement. The building was the original farm house of the Knott’s farm. Mrs. Knott started serving chicken dinners to make a little extra money...

We were excited to try this place. Loved the remodeled restaurant. Cool decor and efficient for lots of diners with families. We wanted to sit at the bar and have a cocktail before sitting down for dinner. I went to the restroom and asked my husband to order me a drink meanwhile. He was told that he could not order...

I had not eaten in the restaurant for many years, and I was looking forward to seeing how they remodeled the interior of the restaurant. It looked wonderful! However, it was very loud as the sound seemed almost amplified. It was difficult to have a conversation. The food was blah. We had chicken, salad, baked beans, and biscuits. The food... More

I went for the traditional chicken dinner and you get a lot. Start with biscuits with jam and butter which were amazing warm and fresh! next salad with choice of dressing, followed by soup which was ok maybe a bit thick. Next is the main and you get 4 massive pieces of chicken. I was stuffed by this point! You... More

As a kid we brought grandma, grandpa, brothers and sisters to Mrs. Knotts Chicken Dinner for birthdays and even when we came back to California for a visit we stopped and had Mrs. Knotts. We had been away for a number of years (15) and in the past 2 years we've come back 3 times and each time the quality... More

Noodle soup - yuck. Thick like gravy way salty. Chicken ok but the skin is soggy. Rolls come in a nice display but nothing special. Mashed potatoes were very good and the gravy was great. However they were skimpy on the gravy. Apple pie too too sweet All that aside we'll come again. Chicken dinner is large enough to share.

My family and I visited here after we left Knott's Berry Farm and it was exceptional! A lot of food at a great price! The fried chicken was great and so was the wonderful chicken pot pie (my favorite)! Also, the boysenberry jam, boysenberry punch, and boysenberry dressing are all wonderful too! You should definitely eat here at least once,... More

I ordered the traditional fried chicken dinner which came with 3 pieces and lots of side dishes. It was enough to 2 meals for me! If you want to save money, get the take out version next door where the bakery is. Food was delicious!

We were a party of 4 and were seated immediately even though the park at just closed. On the plus side, very friendly wait staff. They have changed their menu to $21.99 each. Family style meal for 4 or more is still 21.99 each and everyone has to agree on the sides, etc. Gone is the ability to pick 2... More
