An American Restaurant & Event Venue in Shelbyville

The finest in country cooking and family-style dining is always the fare when you visit Claudia Sanders Dinner House.  Our restaurant carries on the traditions of our founders, Colonel Sanders and his wife, Claudia. Their knowledge of southern recipes and their skill in the restaurant business soon brought about the creation of the Claudia Sanders Dinner House, where an air of Southern Hospitality and cooking combined with old fashioned, family-style service remain. We’re proud to be a local landmark, attracting tourists and visitors from all over. 



You'll feel an authentic vibe of southern hospitality at our restaurant. We believe in offering homemade favorites made fresh every day with only the finest ingredients.  We’re known for having some of the best fried chicken in the country, but our commitment to quality extends far beyond that. We serve only USDA prime meats, and everything we serve is made from scratch in our kitchen, including all our bread, soups, salad dressings… even our croutons. Some of our favorites include:


  • Fried chicken
  • New York strip steak
  • Pork Chops
  • Sugar cured ham
  • Fried chicken livers
  • Kentucky hot brown
  • Classic side dishes
  • Homemade pies and cakes
  • Fresh bread and biscuits

We also have a full-service bar and lounge on the premises so you can relax before and after your meal in pure southern comfort. And if you love our food, consider bringing your family to dine with us for the Holidays, as we are open on Thanksgiving and other major holidays to offer a special Holiday Buffet. Let us handle the cooking! You can also let us help your cooking by stocking up at our gift shop, or by calling ahead to arrange a catering order. 


Our facility offers a wide variety of rooms to host your next event, whether it be a wedding reception, Quinceañera, banquet, family reunion, wedding or baby shower, seminar, business luncheon or any other private party. We have smaller rooms for more intimate events, or you can book the Colonel’s Quarters, our largest banquet room. It holds up to 450 seated guests or standing room of up to 1,000! 

We design our service around your needs for your event and can provide a buffet style, station-style, family-style, plated, or hand passed service. We also have a full beverage service available for all events!

If you're looking for the perfect place for your country wedding, then we are the ideal spot for you. Not only are our facilities excellent for your reception, but we also offer areas for the actual ceremony, with both our elegant Main Dining Room and outdoor Courtyard Garden Wedding venues.


For a delectable meal and the chance for an award-winning party or formal event, call Claudia Sanders Dinner House at (502) 633-5600 today to make a catering or event reservation. We can't wait to see you!
