A limited menu with six or so entrees, but check the menu online before you visit to see if it is cuisine you'd like and appropriate to your wallet. We thought the food was some the... read more

Located along the historic Main Street, the Red Pony has never disappointed us! They have done a very good job refurbishing the old building in which they operate and that attention to be unique and local and friendly, combined with the attention to make sure the quality and selection of the food stays top notch, makes this a must stop....

A group of 4 of us ate here on our last night in the area. We made reservations a few hours ahead of time and were promptly seated at arrival. Aaron was our server and I can't say enough about how fantastic he was. He was genuinely interested in us and our reasons for being in the area and our... More

We have a dinner group (8) that love to try new places and surprisingly it had been a while since any of us had been to the Red Pony. The food was outstanding, the service impeccable and the ambiance top shelf! It certainly competes with any of the nouveau farm-to-table restaurants in the Nashville area and exceeded our expectations. Our... More

One of the best restaurants in Franklin. Ask to sit upstairs where the atmosphere feels more intimate.

My husband and I had dinner at The Red Pony for the second time last week, and our meals were even better than the first time. Although our appetizer and entrees were outstanding during our first visit, the desserts didn't quite live up to the rest of our meals. I ordered an Asian trout entree which is not currently on...

A great place with a large window to view the kitchen, excellent service and delicious food. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The chef sent out a special appetizer to my daughter and I ~ gnocchi that was absolutely one of the best foods I have ever eaten! The sushi appetizer we shared was delicious also as well... More

This is a gorgeous restaurant with two floors to accommodate any type of dining. It has a view-thru kitchen, a modern but cozy atmosphere, two bars (one up & one down), and a shaded back porch perfect for outdoor dining. The fine-dining American style food is superb, with menu changes for each season. The staff is very friendly, professional and... More
