I booked a reservation at Red Pony based on very favourable Tripadvisor reviews. The restaurant was worthy of the praise. The decor was very warm and comfortable, and they seated us right next to the large window that looks into the kitchen. Dinner and a show! Our server was very knowledgeable and helped us with wine pairings. We had two... More

came in at dinner time on a Friday without a reservation. We were able to be seated right away on the outdoor patio, it was a bit humid but no complaints from us.

Excellent food and very knowledgeable wait staff. They were very willing to work with our reservation, but since we arrived early they offered us a patio seat. Our server was very good and had good wine knowledge. He also invited me to try a Moscow mule, which was very refreshing.

Love how they keep creativity in the menu so that we don't get bored; yet some of our most popular favorites always seem to be there in some shape or fashion. We've never had anything we didn't like.

After spending the afternoon being overwhelmed by the brutality of the Battle of Franklin, we had dinner at the Red Pony. We had read about it in our trip planning and the previous evening at a restaurant in Brentwood, a local had highly recommended it so we called to make a reservation and could only get in at 5:00.

Some friends and I dined here visiting the area for business. Jeremy was our server, and he was charming and attentive :-). We had several dishes--my favorites were the Bacon Wrapped Elk Medallions with a large cheese stuffed pepper, and the Kale Salad. I LOVED the Berry dessert we shared (no picture, sadly). We sat upstairs and outside at the... More
