Looking for a new restaurant to try in the Fort Campbell area?
Going out to eat can be a lot of fun, especially with the world opening back up after 2020. Trying out new restaurants can be a great way to learn more about your new home. Here in the Fort Campbell area, we have many restaurants to try. Some closer to post than others.
There are many different types of places to go and visit and explore here on the Kentucky and Tennessee border. From Bar and Grills to bakeries with treats you can’t get enough of. The Fort Campbell area is also growing and seems to be adding new places to try all the time.
Here are a few restaurants in the area that our family has been to and have enjoyed:
Blackhorse is one of my favorites. Unfortunately, they had a fire early this year and are temporality closed. Blackhorse has a big pub feel and is especially cozy during those cold winter days, or nights. I love their prime rib sandwich and hope they will be back open before the end of the year. They are located at 132 Franklin Street in Downtown Clarksville.
Unfortunately, Kimo’s has since closed.
Kimo’s serves Hawaiian food and yummy cocktails and is located at 125 Franklin Street in Downtown Clarksville. The kalua pork is amazing and they have plenty of tropical cocktails to try.
El Bracero is a fun place to get together with friends for some quesadillas and margaritas. There are three located in Clarksville, and one in Hopkinsville. They also have a military discount.
Were you stationed in Germany and miss getting those yummy German bakery treats? Well, the Fort Campbell area has a place you can go to get them. Silke’s is a bakery and cafe you are going to want to check out. Order a plate of schnitzel and bratwurst, with a side of German cake for dessert. They are located at 1214 A College St. in Clarksville.
Looking for a local place to get a yummy hamburger and fries? You can find just that at Johnny’s Big Burger, across from the Austin Peay Campus. Make sure to bring cash, and don’t forget to order a shake. You can find them at 428 College Street in Clarksville.
The Depot is a little further away from Fort Campbell, but worth the drive. The food is so delicious, I love the chicken salad sandwich, and the atmosphere is great! We like to stop there on the way to Nashville. Find them at 1007 S Main St. in Springfield, TN.
Golly G’s is such a fun place to take the kids for ice cream or other baked goods. They also have. a lunch menu. In Clarksville, they are located in the Sango area at 2622 Madison St. You can also find locations in Pleasant View and Greenbrier.
In the mood for a really yummy hotdog? Check out Chi-Town Hotdogs. So many yummy choices. They do only accept cash and are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Find them behind the Big Lots at 1057 S. Riverside Dr. in Clarksville.
Want to take in a meal by the river? Check out Liberty Park Grill right at the Clarksville Marina. They make some yummy salads and will give you a free meal on your birthday. After dinner, take a walk along the river and watch the sunset. Perfect for date night!
I love going to Woody’s with my family because we rarely have to wait, can get pizza for everyone, and they have some yummy salads too. They have three locations in the area, on Tiny Town Rd, Woodlawn, and Sango areas.
Finding local places to love at a new duty station is so important to do. Doing so will help you feel more connected to the area, and make for a better experience.
Within the Fort Campbell area you can find many of your favorite chain restaurants, but going out and trying a more local place to eat can be a lot of fun, and help you find favorite places you will want to return to over and over again.
