Clarksville Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Clarksville

April 14, 2018 Layne Dawes

Clarksville, Tennessee, in Montgomery County, is a bustling city built by the tobacco trade. The Customs House Museum & Cultural Center, in the city's historic district, was originally constructed as a US Post Office during the tobacco boom. Now it has been converted into art gallery, history center, and hands-on children's museum. Just outside of town is the Dunbar Cave State Park, where visitors can hike through caverns that were once mined for gun powder and used for big band concerts.

Smokin Chikin

Rotisserie & Grill, international flavors. Let your taste buds travel the WORLD. We Cater.

Reviewed By Bridget L

I absolutely love the food! The only reason I gave it four stars is something very simple...parking is bad and some of the food you have to eat with your fingers, a lot of it, but the napkins are extremely cheap, extremely. That's it!

Black Horse Pub & Brewery

Reviewed By James I - New York City, New York

I was driving so didn't get to sample any of the alcoholic beverages here but hear they are highly recommended. I did, however, eat here and really enjoyed my sandwich. I ordered the Boo Radley Turkey sandwich because the combination of the Turkey, cheese, bacon, onions and spicy mustard sounded tasty and it was. The loaded potato side was very large and combined with the sandwich and some sweet tea, managed to fill me up. The prices aren't cheap but the taste was worth it in my opinion and I'd eat here again.Check out t menu as there seems to be something for every type of person here, the menu is more varied than you'd think.

Cracker Barrel

Reviewed By Railsback

We have traveled to Nashville for several years with a group originating in Kansas City during the month of February for Bluegrass music and awards. Our return trip has always included breakfast at the Clarksville Cracker Barrel. We find that Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores are typically consistent when it comes to excellent menu items and service. I normally order my standard parfait (yogurt with fruit & granola) which also includes eggs & bacon. There are many great choices but this meal is a little ‘lighter’ than some so it works good for me. A nice place to sit and visit with others if it works into your schedule. I firmly believe we can’t go wrong if we choose Cracker Barrel. Friendly, expedient service!

Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen

Reviewed By Eblueangel - Clarksville, Tennessee

We were new to the area coming from California and it was my birthday. My husband, our kids and his family went to Cheddars for my birthday Dinner and we were not disappointed. Had great service and even better food. My daughter didn’t like something she ordered so they brought her out another choice free of charge and let us keep the original order to take home. Very nice restaurant atmosphere and a pleasant dining experience for all especially for those special occasions. All around great time with delicious food. I highly recommend.

Fuji Yama

Reviewed By Tiffany N - Clarksville, Tennessee

Fujiyama had been recommended to me and I decided to try a new place. The service at Fujiyama was excellent. I could not have asked for better service. The timing of our plates was a bit off, but I would rather have food while it is ready. The best part of our meal was the calamari appetizer. This was a dish that had been recommended to me and I would have again. Skip the miso soup, it is nothing to rave about. The salad is also a little disappointing in appearance, but the dressing is very good. Sushi was so/so. I had tuna, salmon, tilapia, eel, and shrimp. I like my sushi served very cold and the temperature of the fish was too warm for me. The sushi was beautifully prepared. Skip anything tempura, unless you put it in soy sauce or Wasabi, without it everything just tastes of the panko. I will go back to re-rate, as I definitely strayed from what I think the server would have recommended if I had asked and I didn't read other reviews before I went. I think there are some stars on the menu, like the calamari, you just need to know what they are before you go or ask the server for recommendations.

Rafferty's Restaurant & Bar

Reviewed By 8gkids - Macon, Illinois

We have never been here because we thought it was a buffet. The desk clerk at the Hampton inn recommended it. So glad we listened to him!! It was awesome food and awesome service!! We will definitely return on our next trip through Clarksville. My husband had the ribeye with the hand cut fries!! A lot of times hand cut fries are soggy. These were not!! They were very good!! I had the filet!! Very tender and awesome flavor!! Definitely 5 star in my opinion!!

Chick-fil-A

Reviewed By Steve D - Granger, Indiana

I have been to this Chick-fil-A location many times. The parking lot requires some attention as you enter as you drive through the Chipotle parking lot to get into the Chick-fil-A lot from the frontage road.
I have been quickly served on every visit. Orders are accurate and the usually friendliness from this chain is evident.
If you are on the road and need a quick pit-stop this Chick-fil-A will get you a meal and back on the road quickly.
