Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant
Now Open for Indoor Dining

A Family Tradition For Over 80 Years

Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant first opened in 1934 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. 

For parties of 9 or more, please contact us at 714-220-5319 to book a reservation.

Step inside the new, spacious lobby and check-in at the hostess stand. If a wait is necessary, enjoy the time perusing the shops of the California Marketplace and receive a text message when it’s time to eat!

The Tea Room was the first dining room to open in 1934. A meal in this dining room means cozying up together in a booth inspired by the original seating arrangements and views of the hustle and bustle of the California Marketplace just outside the windows that line the dining room.

The large dining room to the right of the entrance has been remodeled with a look inspired by Mrs. Knott’s kitchen pantry. Nods to Cordelia’s home kitchen, including a potbelly stove, rustic furnishings, and seating arrangements for large parties evoke themes of warmth, family, and togetherness.

Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant now features a full service bar, serving signature boysenberry-infused cocktails. With décor that pays homage to the Garden Dining Room that preceded it, the bar is at once rustic and modern, and a great place to retire to after a day of fun in the park.

With a theme inspired by a western farmhouse, the barn dining room is a great reminder of why life is better on the farm!

A new outdoor seating area on the restaurant’s north side welcomes you to dine al fresco with beautiful views of the California Marketplace fountain and the newly restored GhostRider roller coaster.

Were it not for Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant, Knott’s Berry Farm would not be the beloved, world class theme park it has become. To entertain guests waiting for a seat at his wife, Cordelia’s, popular restaurant, Walter Knott began erecting a collection of modest old west buildings that established the basis of Ghost Town. The rest, as they say, is history ...
