Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant reopened Thursday night after its permit was restored following treatment for a cockroach infestation, theme park officials said.

Jason Soyster, a spokesman for Knott’s Berry Farm, referred to the infestation as an “isolated structural incident” and said the restaurant was reopened at about 9:30 p.m.

The eatery had its permit suspended at about 2 p.m.

“The issue was contained to utility areas and had no impact on food preparation or guest dining areas,” Soyster said. “Knott’s remains committed to delivering safe, enjoyable experiences at all of its attractions, shopping and dining locations.”
