If old fashioned southern cooking is what you want, this is the place . Fried chicken is the highlight along with a vast selection of southern style vegetables.

We drove 30 miles out of our way to experience true KFC! Ordered the all you can eat chicken because it came with every single side on the menu - corn pudding, creamed spinach, mock oysters (breaded eggplant), stewed tomatoes, stewed beets, green beans w/ ham, mashed potatoes with milk gravy and the most delicious home made dinner rolls. Loved... More

We were so looking forward to lunch here but wish we had never gone. Service and atmosphere are superb but food is sorely lacking. The barbecue had way too much sauce and every other bite was just fat. Egg salad was thin on plain bread. Chicken was ok. Sides were mushy and not very good. The one positive were the... More

The Northern Bean Soup was good. That's about the only good thing I can say about my dining experience at Claudia Sanders. From the menu I ordered a "piled high sliced country ham sandwich." What I received was a ham salad (tiny pieces of diced ham with waaaay too much mayo). Waitress stated that's just the way it's served here.... More

Good chicken and good rolls with a Kentucky horse-inspired decor. Service was good because it was close to empty on a Friday night when the other restaurants in town were packed. We had guests from out-of-state, so it was good for them to experience some old KY charm. I wouldn't go back just for the food.

A trip to Shelby Co., Kentucky wouldn't be complete without a stop to a landmark restaurant, Claudia Sanders Dinner House, between Shelbyville & Simpsonville, near the new outlet mall off I-64. True to it's Bluegrass heritage, the restaurant is decorated with numerous paintings or pictures of Ky thoroughbreds. But the focal point of our visit wasn't horses, but the best... More

Some of the reviews left us on the fence about going to this restaurant. However I'm glad we went. The servers were in fact very friendly as some reviews suggested. The cigarette smell when you enter the restaurant mentioned by other reviewers is true and as a non smoker was off putting but we quickly realized the smell is right... More

Loved the chicken but the sides could use a little help. Stewed tomatoes eggplant stuffing was not to my liking. Rolls and chicken were aaaamazing. Soup was very good also. Checkout cashier did not give back credit card after transaction. She said I left it but she made no effort to stop us as we walked to our car.
