Great Pre Theater Meal

I Just wanted to take a minute and give credit where it is due. We had dinner here last night before going to see Mary Poppins at the Franklin Theater and everything was incredible.Our show started at 7 and we were starting to think we might not make it on time. I notified our waiter of our plans... read more

We enjoyed the upstairs lounge and sampled almost the entire appetizer menu with our cocktails. We did so at opening on a Thursday. WOW! $175 for 7 cocktails and 5 appetizers. Not a place where your wealth manager might suggest you hold a business meeting. Good food and service, but too $$.

The meal was great with courses spaced out that let us enjoy our drinks and conversation. We went on a Monday evening, so we suspected that there were less people than normal, which made the place seem very relaxed, and the waitstaff and host seemed to be at ease and enjoyment as well. That's a huge plus! It is expensive,... More

Service was first rate. Food was outstanding. Drinks were on point. Decor is eclectic. Atmosphere was a little tough to hold conversation between the techno music and the loud conversations at the table next to us. I don't think that will dissuade us from having another date night here.

Fantastic food, service, drinks and atmosphere. This is always busy and great place to people watch. Downstairs bar is always elbow-to-elbow, but there's usually a bit more luck at the upstair bar. Their Lobster ravioli is one of the best dishes I've ever eaten and something everyone should try.

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.
