I was driving from Louisville KY to Georgetown, KY in the evening so I looked online to find a place to stop for dinner on the way. Thankfully I came across Claudia Sanders Dinner House. I was intrigued by the fact it was previously owned by Colonel Harlan Sanders who created Kentucky Fried Chicken. Mind you I am not a... More

Tonight a group of us dined at Claudia Sanders. The service was great as were the rolls (oh, yes, I could eat only rolls if I wouldn't look like one when I left). Our glasses were refilled quickly and without notice. The waiter was efficient and more than willing to answer our questions. My son-in-law and daughter ordered the soup... More

It was a very nice sit down restaurant with old southern charm. We went for a Sunday brunch buffet that had plenty to offer.

I have fond memories of Claudia Sanders when I was younger. We didn't make the drive from Louisville to the restaurant very often, so it always seemed a special treat. The idea of unlimited sides served family style always had me drooling, and I always stumbled away stuffed to the gills. Unfortunately, nostalgia can color both your memories and your... More

My family and I went to Claudia Sanders and we all got sick that day! Will never go back. It's especially difficult to have food poisoning when you have a newborn to raise

It was early when we arrived and there weren't many people. The salad & soup bar looked fresh and inviting with four soups and bread pudding for dessert. The best deal going was $8.99 for that bar and all you can eat wings/livers or combo for additional $2.99. Knowing I wouldn't eat that much, I opted for the all white... More

OK, the Sunday brunch buffet is full of killer Southern foods - all extremely tasty, and all probably full of fat, calories, sugar! $19 per person gets you as much fried chicken, prime rib, pork tenderloin, chicken pot pie and a ton of sides. I especially loved the creamed spinach and green beans. The fried cabbage is excellent. There is... More

After living in the area for nearly 10 years, I finally got around to visiting this local icon. We met family at the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. The parking lot had plenty of space, but we overheard wait staff mention a party of 70 coming in soon! The 6 of us shared a round table that usually seats 8.... More

Well, here I go again, disagreeing with other reviewers. At least I feel vindicated that my husband agrees with me (the title was his suggestion). We met at Claudia Sander's Dinner House with the group of people that, like my husband, were former Atlantic/National/Gore Investment Group/Cenveo Envelope Company employees for the Sunday buffet. It was great to see friends and... More

Claudia was wife of Colonel Harlan Sanders of KFC fame. This is a very good Southern cuisine restaurant just off the interstate between Lexington and Louisville. If traveling that area, don't miss it. We had the Sunday buffet. The prime rib was succulent and medium to medium rare- just right. The fried and baked chicken was moist, tender and flavorful....
