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

We were in Franklin on business and went to the Red Pony for dinner based in a recommendation from a colleague. The food was excellent and the service was even better. Brian (who is serendipitously from Seattle!) was our server and he was so good at describing each of the dishes that we ended up ordering almost everything and having... More

Wonderful place to eat right on main street in downtown franklin. If you plan on eating on Friday or Saturday make your reservations no later that 6 hours in advanced. This is a pricey place to eat but worth it. Nice wine selection and great wait staff
