  • Montgomery Co. Courthouse Building

    Tony and I went to Clarksville one afternoon. It was a Sunday so it was very deserted. We parked near the Montgomery Co. Courthouse building and decided to take a stroll around the town. Most people only walk around here during the work week, because the Main part of Clarksville is now considered near the mall or interstate..this is the older...

  • The Roxy Regional Theatre

    A lovely little theatre with wonderful live performances. The shows I've seen here have been first rate, even though on a tiny stage in an intimate setting. "Of Mice and Men" was wonderfully poignant, and the recent "Forever Plaid" made creative use of their space while giving one of the best performances I've seen in a while. I love regional...

  • CLOSED - The Front Page for Pre-Theatre...

    8/11/12 - well, we went to see a play at the Roxy and planned to eat at the Front Page, but it is completely emptied and has a "For Lease" sign out front. Add it to to the list of "Ain't Dere No More..."This is a nice, casual place to grab a bite before crossing the street to see a play at the Roxy. Part sports-bar (see the sports memorabilia on...

  • Local micro brewery and pizza

    Clarksville's micro brewery. Great pizzas and pretty good entrees. Drawback is slow service...the management needs to hire more servers! A "create your own pizza" with garlic crust.

  • Vietnamese Soup Fix

    A little "hole in the wall" restaurant. Don't let the outside keep you from going in.Hours: Monday to Saturday 10 am to 8 pm. Pho Tai - Beef noodle soup. A huge bowl that only the biggest appetites can finish! It's wonderful!

    more
  • Mmmmm...pizza and beer

    The Blackhorse is Clarksville's brewery and "gourmet" pizza place. There are several types of pizza, some more exotic than others, and several flavors of beer, even vanilla. The lighting is somewhat dark, but I suppose that's intentional; it is, afterall, a popular spot for dates and such.It's in the downtown historic district, just down the street...

  • The Classic Burger Joint

    Johnny's is the classic burger joint. It has great, greasy burgers, perfectly cooked french fries, and tons of other options that are always cooked to perfection. It's packed for a reason; the food is ALWAYS good.Be frugal with the soda...there aren't free refills. Johnny's signature item, something I haven't found anywhere else...the honeybun and...

  • Hibachi at its best

    The food is superb every time. Whether it's chicken, steak, shrimp, or scallops, it's always perfectly flavored and delicious. The premeal soup and salad is just enough to get the stomach ready for the treat to come.My mouth is watering just writing this tip. The best dish to order is the Samurai meal. Enough steak and chicken to make the stomach...

  • Nice shop, good food, SLOW service

    The restaurant ambience is great. Local artist and craftsmen have their items on display to sell. The tables are beautiful wrought iron. There is a nice garden for outside dining.Fresh baked bread is wonderful. Most of the entrees are excellent.But I will not eat here. Why? Because the service is HORRIBLE. You never know if the staff is going to...

    Bus station downtown

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By personal auto is the best way to get around. There is a fairly good city bus system that will take you to the main areas. Taxi cabs are pricey and VERY SLOW to arrive (you could be waiting an hour!!). Also, they do not use meters and will rip you off. I was quoted a rate of $16 to go 2 miles.

Clarksville Warnings and Dangers

  • Not all U-haul dealers are created...

    There are 2 U-haul places in Clarksville. From experience I will ONLY use the one at 2030 Ft Campbell Blvd. It's located at the Transmission Tyme shop on the west side of the road. The owner is polite, professional and plain-ole NICE. Can't say that about the other location.

  • What Red Light?

    Be careful; Clarksville drivers - especially on the North side of town - are 99% colorblind. Red lights are nearly inconsequential. If it has just turned red, someone will probably be coming through at any moment.Just make sure that you pause, look both ways, pause again, look again, and then go. Otherwise, you might end up getting T-Boned.
