From our drinks and guac to our meals our night at the Red Pony was delightful. It is one of our favorite Franklin restaurants and it seems to only get better with each visit. It had been a few years since I'd had the shrimp and grits and it was just as good as I remembered. My husband got the... More

In a recent trip to Nashville, we had the good fortune to have dinner at the Red Pony. The food was excellent and the service was very good, too. Our waiter had a bit of an attitude, unusual for most everywhere we went in Nashville. However, he did a good job and the food was truly excellent. Well prepared and... More

Showed up at last minute with a large group and the staff set us up outside on balcony. The staff is nice and very friendly. Food is great. Promt service and food came out at a reasonable time period. Would return.

The Red Pony Restaurant in Franklin has a historic feel to it, which made it a perfect place to dine after visiting Historic Carnton Plantation. The food was excellent, and, in our three-week tour of the south, I never had a better salad: a fabulous lemon shallot vinaigrette covered mixed greens and spiced almonds and, on the side, breaded and...

This was my second visit to Red Pony. Went a couple of years back after they first opened and was unimpressed. I thought at that time that the food was overpriced for what was served and that the service was just average. Was not feeling compelled to go back. However some friends invited my wife and I to have dinner... More

Meeting with friends downtown Franklin and we decided to stop at Red Pony. Evwn though it was a busy weekend, we did not wait at all and they gave us a nice table in the second floor. Service was good, nice drink recomendations. Food was good, ambiance a bit loud but it was fun. We will definately go back!

Like the food, service is great, location is right in town--what's to dislike? Make a reservation for better weekend service.

Spent the day in Franklin soaking up the history of the area, finished the day at the Red Pony. Staff were warm and friendly. Great food explained and prepared for you, is what you'll discover ( ...the elk ragu was fantastic! ). This is a great find, and was a wonderful finish to our trip to Tennessee! Be sure to... More

Hubby and I went there for 30th anniversary. Made reservation and made it VERY clear it was our 30th. Even asked if there was a special dessert they might have for us. When we arrived it was obvious the hostess wasn't sure what to do with us. We were seated fairly quickly, but were placed at a small table, in... More
