Good food with a nice ambiance

We tried the Pink Pony during Restaurant Week and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. The pretzels are addictive, as well as the forbidden fruit mule. Delish and worth trying if you're looking for somewhere different and new (yet old and just recently revamped). Service wasn't the... read more

Recommended by the hotel we visited the pink pony for a quick bite to eat. Food was OK, not amazing. Prices reasonable and customer service good too!

Atmosphere was a 5 - great place to watch the sun go down over a nice cocktail. Food was good but not sure if it was worth the price (guessing we were paying for the patio view). Service was on the slow side. Our server seemed to be covering a number of tables and food out the kitchen on a... More

The food was underwhelming, especially the steak. Appetizers like the pretzels with mustard were fun and tasty. The dessert pecan pie with ice cream was nice. But it was presented in a bowl rather than on a plate.

The remodel is nice, updated. Comfortable, dark. Beautiful bar and clean, bright, open kitchen. The menu covers the latest craze and trend foods - house cured meat, wood fired octopus, beets, bone marrow, meatloaf, fried chicken and a few southwest dishes. They have reasonably priced burgers (Niman ranch) and salads. We went for the rib eye. Ordered it charred outside... More

We went for dinner on Friday night, we ordered pretzels and the green chile chicken entree and a burger. The entrees were good, but the pretzels were amazing! They are served with a skillet of hot cheese to dip in and are just overall fantastic. Our server was Vince and he provided some of the best service I have ever... More

To be fair, I probably would have enjoyed this place if I hadn't visited the original Pink Pony back in 2011 and 2012. Then in 2013 it was closed. In 2014 we came back and tried the new version. The drinks were okay, but the original "joint" (my affectionate term for an old-style bar) had THE BEST martini's !!!!!! Give... More

This is a way cool restaurant. The cute bartender Kennan was very sweet and friendly. Everything I saw on the menu I wanted. It was hard to choose. But my bartender recommended the fried chicken with homemade potato salad or mashed potatoes. So I ordered it. WOW. I had never had anything like THIS before. The chicken was lightly breaded...

My wife and I found this place on the web. We thought the menu was intriguing. We booked a reservation through Open Table. When we arrived, we were not disappointed. We were greeted and seated immediately (even though we were early). The staff is friendly and the service is great! The food did not disappoint either. We ordered their wood... More
