A Real Country Experience

Voted OC’s Favorite Brunch & Dinner

Located by America’s first theme park entrance, Knott’s brings OC what real country is all about: fried chicken and all you can eat fresh fruit jams!

Mrs. Knott’s is known for their famous FRRRRied Chik’en and their jammin’ jam. (Please note I prefer Honey Kettle’s fried chicken vs. Mrs. Knott’s)

You’ll get a variety of choices all below $10.
Pro: unlimited Knott’s Jelly and Jam for toast and biscuits!
Con: I found their pancakes to be super spongy and white, their grapefruit a little dry, no fresh squeezed fruit juice, and a line to be a little long past 10am.
*Breakfast starts at 7:00am and brunch starts 9:30am.

Knott’s dinner menu is a little bit more impressive. Their menus are SET (meaning you’ll mandatory get fried chicken, pudding, pie, and mashed potatoes). They’re all so yummy. I especially liked their warm toasty buttery biscuits! MmMMm!

It’s so country, all waitresses are white grandmas who give you a glimpse of what Mrs. Knott might have looked like. They’re all very sweet and southern bells-alike. I’m not sure if it is legal but my friend and I wondered why all buss-boys were african american grandmas with white aprons and black dresses (the ones you see in gone with wind). Well, maybe it was purely coincidental.

There are three rooms in Mrs. Knott’s kitchen. I’ll stay away from the room with an artificial pond since that room is a little murkier than the rest of the restaurant and smells a bit like chlorine. The other two rooms are much more cozy and roomy.

If you’re missing a little southern soul, this is the place to come and eat like it’s your mama’s house. I’ll come back for their dinner but probably not for breakfast. I didn’t try their brunch buffet, but I heard it’s voted OC’s best for years. Remember to pick up a jar of boysenberry and strawberry jams on your way out! They make excellent gifts for moms and tea-lovers!

Three Stacks

Three spongy pale pancakes with a ball of butter!

Blueberry Muffin

Crispy outside, soft inside. Perfect!

Dinner Entre

Large: $13.50, Lunch portion: $10.50

This dinner includes: Fried chicken made with the original Mrs. Knott’s recipe, soup or salad, home-made biscuits served with Knotts jelly and jam, mashed potatoes and gravy, kernel corn, and a slice of pie for desser

Geat Disappointment

Probably the worst chicken and rolls I have ever tasted. I remember when this restaurant was just the best so I was so disappointed when the chicken was tough and undercooked, the rolls bitter, the pie inexcusable —no berries and tasted like it had been purchased not freshly baked as was their standard long ago.

The restaurant is badly in need of refurbishing and tables were way too close and crowded. Only good thing was our server who tried so hard to make the bad things better, but she couldn’t. We will never go back.

Give me back my old school chicken

Yesterday my family and I went to Knott's Berry Farms with some friends to kick off spring break in style. Around lunch time, I talked everyone into eating at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner. That was one decision I would later regret. I had…

Knott's famous chicken

It was good chicken, but I can't say that it was the absolute BEST that I've ever had either. We were already at the park, so we figured we may as well have it. It was still good though. Worth a try.Def eat their funnel cakes though! Now…
