I can’t count how many times on my way south I have seen the sign for Clarksville, Tennessee, but never had the time to stop. This town that was established in the late 1700’s has a lot of wonderful things to see and do and Clarksville offers an array of locally owned dining options Today on a hosted trip, I had the luxury of dining at the cool Blackhorse Pub.
Located downtown, the Pub was pretty full when we entered. I met up with Visit Clarksville’s Michelle Dickerson and my mom, Lori Disque who came along with me. While they had some very nice looking flat bread pizza’s, and other options, my heart was on a late Sunday morning breakfast and I had a traditional bacon (the best I’ve had in a long time) and eggs.
The restaurant is also a brew pub and the history I thought was pretty cool in this town that is near an army base. The restaurant is owned by Jeff Robinson a former helicopter pilot that served in the 101st Airborne Division. Jeff along with his wife Sherri opened the restaurant, then also created their craft brew house.
The name Blackhorse is in honor of the 11th Armored Calvary Regiment that was from a time earlier than when Jeff Robinson served, but one he admired, and a name he thought fit.
If in downtown, Clarksville, take the time to stop at this neat place and try out some of their fine food!
