Back to Knott's, Pt. 3: The Ghost Town Grill

Here is the number one reason why I returned to Knott's after a four year absence: The Ghost Town Grill. The Rumor Mill has been buzzing that possibly this restaurant that has been serving guests since 1946 might actually be on the chopping block.

I believe the two large murals that adorn the interior are by early Knott's art director Paul von Klieben.


and very close!

The other mural is above the kitchen window, disguised as a Covered Wagon. I love it!

The Boysenberry Shake came out first. Nothing like starting with dessert!

I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Salad and it was tasty.

We attempted to pump the waitress for info, but she wasn't falling for the bait. If she knew something, this old pro wasn't going to cough up the answers any time soon. All she said was that for years there was talk about restoring/fixing/updating the restaurant but it hadn't happened yet. Only time will tell.

Here's a sneak preview of my next Knott's post. But not necessarily on Monday. I might have something else for you to enjoy.

Ohhhh the suspense is killing me! Well, that was a slight exaggeration. Regardless... you have set up a cliff hanger for sure.

The ol' pro wasn't going to cough up the answer. Love it. The Ghost Town Grill was a family favorite of ours too.

Oh, I hope the rumor mill is not true. The Grill was a favorite spot for our family too. The pictures bring back the memories...going back to the 60s for me. KS

Looks a great place to go too. The kitchen window disguised the Covered Wagon is so cool to look at. Thanks for the share.
