  • Quality of Mrs. Knott's Offerings Lower than Before?

    Recently, I went to Mrs. Knott's for the first time since the renovation and I was under the impression that the food quality and service was not as good as it was prior to all the changes. For some reason the chicken dinners just didn't seem to be up to par compared to my previous trips to Mrs. Knott's (all prior to the refurbishment) and I almost dare say to me it slipped below Disneyland's Plaza Inn in quality. Does anyone know if there was a menu change or some other change that affected the dinners? I really want to believe it was just an off night that I was there, but the rest of the party I was with all agreed that something was definitely off about the food and was still solid but not top notch like it once was before. It was also a fairly busy Saturday night as well so I'd like to believe they were operating at their peak during that time.

      My wife and I thought the same thing when we tried it out after the remodel. It seemed soggy and lackluster, we were certainly disappointed.

        I had the chicken dinner Saturday night and it was just as good as I remembered.

          That sounds rather unfortunate. The party I was with had the same experience as well and we are now having second thoughts about coming back to Mrs. Knott's for another go at their chicken dinners. They had such a good reputation in the past as far as the chicken dinners were concerned (we had dined there several times before) but coming back and having such a disappointing experience with the food was really a let down.

            The quality hasn't gone down, really. I think people's expectations have increased, the kind of old fashioned meal they provide (soup, salad, etc.) is less the norm (which is part of their charm, to me), and their prices seem to have increased.

            We've eaten there off and on since I was a kid (long time ago), and its always been hit or miss. Sometimes, you get lucky, and the chicken is piping hot, juicy, and wonderful. Sometimes, not so much. If anything, they've been more consistent since after the remodel. The soup and other sides remain the same. The portions are the same, and I still get plenty stuffed trying to finish a full meal. The buttermilk biscuits are same, if not better. I think the boysenberry jam has actually improved. They offer beer now, nice but overpriced. Some new appetizers, but I wouldn't fill up on them.

            They don't have the lines they used to, but that's been true since before the remodel. Again, I don't think it's Mrs. Knott's that's gotten worse, just the competition is stronger now and people's tastes have changed and gotten more varied and sophisticated. Compare the choices we have now, versus fifty years ago, within a short drive of Knott's. But I still love the place, and I'm glad they still exist. In part, for the memories of the many meals I've shared with my family (some no longer here, unfortunately) there over the years. Even the time we used to spend waiting in line, which was often the setting for some of the longest conversations I'd ever had with some of my relatives, is a source of nostalgia for me. We didn't agree on much, but ending the day with a meal at Mrs. Knott's was a given. My grandma loved the place, god bless her.

            For me, it's more than just the chicken, but judged on its own merits, the chicken dinner is still filling, tasty and unique in that they do provide a complete meal including dessert and soup or salad (you can even get both if you ask), which is increasingly rare nowadays. I hope that place is still there for my daughter to bring her own kids someday (when she has some, that is...)

              I've not had the opportunity to have a meal in the remodeled venue, have peaked in tho.
              I have bought chicken from the take out. No problem with the quality as far as I could tell.

                    I like the chicken at both places. We are lucky to have such great options!

                    I do prefer the choice of side dishes at Knott's. I love their boysenberry jam with buttermilk biscuits. And their rhubarb is unique and tasty!

                        I don't think peoples expectations have increased, Knott's has always held a high standard as far as their chicken is concerned. The last meal I had at Mrs. Knott's prior to this trip was right before they closed for the remodel so the construction aside, it wasn't that long between my two trips to Knotts. As for what others have said, I think as far as Chicken goes in the area, the Plaza Inn was a close second for me before but I think if I have another "meh" experience at Knott's, Plaza Inn will definitely take the #1 spot on my chicken list as it's always been a close call for me with the two.

                          Yes, I'm getting the same ideas!

                          This weekend I'm at Knott's. But maybe I have to eat the Boysenberry festival food in the park, and take home chicken and pie for later. No problem: I even still love their chicken the next day!
