Since the beginning, food and dining has been at the heart of Knott’s Berry Farm. Before there was a theme park, Knott’s was a real berry farm where the boysenberry was first successfully grown. In 1934 Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant first opened with Mrs. Knott and her children serving the first customers in their tea room. The restaurant has grown over the years into one of the largest in California, but the classic fried chicken dinner is still made the same way today using Mrs. Knott's recipes. What started as a small family berry farm soon began to grow into a world famous destination thanks to famous fried chicken dinners and delicious boysenberry pies. That culinary innovation still thrives today at Knott’s. Our team of chefs is always striving to bring you new flavors and tasty creations.
