Favorite place in Greater Nashville area!

Moved to this area 4 years ago and Red Pony is our absolute FAVORITE (not only in Franklin, but inclusive of ALL the places we've tried in the Nashville area. BLT (Bacon, Lobster, Tomato) is fantastic. Great service. Cool bar.

My wife and I visited Red Pony for dinner and drinks recently. It is located right down town on main street. I would recommend getting there early so you can walk around the historic downtown beforehand. I asked ahead of time for a table with a cool view. Little did we know that they put us right next to a... More

While the food and service was excellent, it'd difficult to justify a $120 meal for 2 people. It was our anniversary, so for a special occasion, I recommend it. It was swanky, but stylish, fancy decor with electronic music bumping. The bar seemed lively, and it seems like a great place for happy hour.

I've been here for business dinners, romantic dinners, and cocktails with a few pals. It never disappoints. Wonderful cocktails and entrees, a good wait staff, and a happening bar. Bar food here is delicious, if you want something light- the Flatbread Pizza is delicious. For an entree, the steak is superb. I'm not usually a Martini guy, but their Vodka... More

visited the Red Pony for the 3rd year in a row when we are in Franklin. to say it was outstanding is an understatement. they change their menu so that when you go back there is something new and exciting to try. the service was outstanding. we are looking forward to our next visit.

I love Red Pony and look for excuses to eat there. The bartender comes up with most creative, delicious drinks and the food is always awesome.

Red pony is a Franklin standard. The food is excellent as is the service and wine list. They have unusual dishes. Last time I had some elk which was very good. I also remember having an excellent lemon drop martini.

Food was touted by waiter as outstanding. It was good, but not outstanding. The primary problem for me is that the place is so loud that it makes it hard to enjoy the meal.

The menu is always interesting and my wife loves the Killin' Me Smalls gin cocktail. Even if you think you don't like gin, you should try it. The upstairs area is our favorite. It has a great bar area to wait in while your table is prepared. The food is amazing, and always prepared to perfection. Red Pony will not... More

Everything from staff to food was fabulous. The shrimp and grits had more of a French flair with a white wine sauce and mushrooms. One of the best meals I have ever eaten. Also had the meat and pickle tray as an appetizer and grits gnocchi which was wonderful. Hubby had the tomato mozzarella salad which he loved and I... More
