            I'm on a fucking diet, Fml. So you know the drill.

              It's good but not quite as good as it was when the Knott's Family still owned it before Cedar Fair…. But no one can beat those biscuits and boysenberry jam.

              1. re: wienermobile

                +1 It definitely went down hill along with their bakery after the acquisition.

                1. re: wienermobile

                  Was just there for lunch. Boysenberry jam was in one of those little sealed packages made by Smuckers. Biscuits were a little too dark on the bottom. Chicken noodle soup was okay but the cabbage was soggy. Chicken was just adequate.

                  1. re: HBGigi

                    Sadly Smuckers recently shut down the Knott's brand of Jams and Jellys.

                      1. re: ns1

                        Yeah, they really put the Smuck in Smuckers with that one.

                      2. re: HBGigi

                        Yeah. Why would they have Smuckers at Knotts Berry Farm that's like serving Pepsi at The Coca Cola theme park ????????

                  2. Funny was just there yesterday for lunch. They have a lot more options including a hamburger as mentioned below. We ended sharing one chicken dinner with all white meat. Dinner was $16.99 + $3.59 for all white meat. Hubby had the chicken soup and I had a salad. Came with three large breasts. Moist and tender but would like a little more crust. We had fries instead of mashed, they were nice and crispy. Rolls were a little burnt and doughy. Jam was in the little plastic containers and was runny. They offer a boysenberry butter for $1.29 extra might try next time. Then had boysenberry pie. There was plenty to eat with only one meal.

                      No buttermilk biscuits ?????

                      How was the boysenberry pie ??????

                      1. re: kevin

                        Biscuits were very doughy. Pie was good had it the way I like warm with lemon slices and ice cream.
                        As noted below the atmosphere hasn't changed in 40 years. The waitress was very nice but the uniforms and all needs to be updated.

                    2. Just tried it after at least 20 years and not only was the food barely adequate, the atmosphere was like eating in a convalescent home.

                        Yes it is like eating in a convalescent home in Phoenix Arizona. But for those of us who grew up in Southern California it seems stuck in time and charmingly untouched by the last 50 years including the waitress and the rhubarb, the only thing that has really changed are the prices.

                        1. re: wienermobile

                          I agree with Wienwr.

                          This sentiment also applies to Musso and Frank for me.


                          1. re: kevin

                            But Musso's still serves good food.

                            1. re: BubblyOne

                              I don't disagree with you.

                              But many other hounds hate the food at Mussos and think its worse than a slop house.

                              1. re: kevin

                                There was a recent thread on Musso's and I don't recall anyone saying it was worse than a slop house, lol.

                                I was there a few months ago and from the looks of the clientele and cars in the valet- these were people of all ages that could eat anyplace they chose.

                                1. re: BubblyOne

                                  anyone, have a link to the thread where a whole bunch of hounds hated on Musso's ????????


                                  1. re: kevin

                                    Here is the link from last month I was talking about. You kept posting "we are in the minority", but I think all of the posts were positive-


                                    1. re: BubblyOne

                                      Not that one.

                                      I found the thread now.

                                      here it is (the majority of the sentiments in this thread are unfavorable, i got the two threads mixe-up):


                                      1. re: kevin

                                        Even that thread had many that liked it as well. Another polarizing place for sure like Dan Tana.

                                        Edited to add have you been to Knott's?

                                        1. re: BubblyOne

                                          I have. And I like it.

                                          Maybe now I'll only like it for nostalgia sake,

                                          but yea.

                          2. re: wienermobile

                            I grew up here as well and IMHO Knott's is one of those places (these days) that one visit is more than enough.

                            It's kind of like the Pinks of fried chicken.

                            1. re: BubblyOne

                              Funny you should say that…There's now a Pink's right outside the Fried Chicken Restaurant at the Knott's main entrance.
