The Newly Refurbished Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant
Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant underwent a complete refurbishment earlier this year.
The beautiful new entrance takes you to the Hostess stand. No longer do you have to wait in their old switch back queue. You simply check in and if there is a wait they will ask for a cell phone number and they will text you when your table is ready. So your wait is exploring the California Marketplace.
If you do want to wait inside the restaurant there is a spacious lobby area.
There is now a full service bar. They have some wonderful boysenberry-infused cocktails.
Two of your boysenberry options are a draft boysenberry beer and a boysenberry lemon drop. They also offer a boysenberry mojito.
The biscuits are still served fresh and warm.
You get your own butter and boysenberry jelly.
The chicken noodle soup is still one of the best ever. And one can never go wrong with some salad as well.

Now I used to think that Mrs. Knott's chicken was one of the best on the planet but I don't know if it has been years of eating the flavorful and juicy chicken at the Plaza Inn at Disneyland but there is a lack of flavor on Mrs. Knott's chicken. The chicken here is still moist and juicy but the lack of flavor made me sad.
And what else would you finish dinner off with than a slice of boysenberry pie?
A wonderful refurbishment of the Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant is sadly held back by the flavorless chicken. Other than that, the service, the ambiance and the rest of the food is authentically homemade. Maybe I will try something other than the fried chicken on my next visit.
