We joined up with family for dinner at the Famous Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant at 7:30PM. Dispite the rather late hour there was about a 20 minute wait for a table. When finally seated, there were many tables unoccupied. The menu is very limited. Basically they offer a chicken dinner at $21.99 or family style at the same price... More

I have always loved Mrs. Knotts, but a recent visit changed that. The new decor is nice, but the flavors were not. the biscuits were not completely baked, the rhubarb was hard, like eating wood, the potatoes were watery. The chicken was good but not as I remember it. I can say the boysenberry pie was delicious and saved the... More

Just returned from a trip to Anaheim and we had to visit Mrs Knotts. We saw some reviews on YouTube and just had to make a visit. We were not disappointed. We ordered the fried chicken and the chicken dumpling. They were both tender and the fried chicken was not greasy at all. The boisenberry jam was awesome and we... More

At best this is an average place. I had the chicken salt....I mean soup, yikes, man it was salty! We also had Caesar salad, and a two piece chicken lunch. This came with mashed potatoes and corn. The chicken was good, nice and crunchy, and juicy inside, though that was under seasoned, of course maybe the soup blew out my... More

If you have been to Knott's for their Chicken Dinner before they remodeled you will be disappointed in the meal that they serve you now. Just don't want folks who are looking forward to the same "chicken" dinner that was so good to be disappointed.

I love their fried chicken! We have been known to pick up a bucket and take it next day to another theme park for lunch. Large quantity for a lot less than KFC. Got a pie this time too and it was great!

Great chicken dinner. Loved the new remodel of the place. As always biscuits and jam were the best. Tried the boysenberry butter and loved it! Tart and buttery! Had to take home biscuits!

We went for lunch and the food was amazing and plentiful. Service was also terrific and i would recommend eating here at least once. The pie is to die for!

This was great. Best fried chicken we have had in ages. Friendly service, fast and delicious. Nice meal. Biscuits, soup, chicken dinner with potatoes and gravy, pie for desert. Also of note- we had a gluten free guest and they were handled extremely well Whole family is looking forward to a return visit.
