Claudia Sanders Dinner House

Shelbyville, KY 40065

Open Tuesday-Saturday 11AM-9PM. Closed Monday’s except for private parties.
In 1964, Colonel Sanders sold Kentucky Fried Chicken and the company offices were moved. Neither this building nor the Sanders were to remain idle for long however. Their knowledge of Southern Recipes and their natural leaning toward the restaurant business soon brought about the creation of this, the Claudia Sanders Dinner House where an air of Southern Hospitality and cooking combined with old fashioned, family style service still remain. The Colonel named the restaurant after his wife, Claudia, and is sometimes still referred to as “The Colonel’s Lady”.
