This is the #1 restaurant in Franklin for a reason. This is the kind of place I go to when traveling with friends, in this particular situation we were in town for the dog shows. We had a great experience and a very knowledgeable waiter. The Tomato Salad was excellent - these are not store bought tasteless tomatoes - was... More

Great food and service in Old Franklin, Tn. Really enjoyed the food and the vibe. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly! There is a lively downstairs bar and restaurant seating. Upstairs are several rooms and lounge areas, if you just want to have a drink. I will say we were seated at the extreme back of the restaurant, upstairs...I would... More

I enjoyed eating here. The prices were a little too much. Especially for the martinis. The atmosphere was nice, a little loud though.

We have gone to The Red Pony many times and never been disappointed. It's a little noisy for an intimate conversation but very minor point.

I booked a reservation at Red Pony based on very favourable Tripadvisor reviews. The restaurant was worthy of the praise. The decor was very warm and comfortable, and they seated us right next to the large window that looks into the kitchen. Dinner and a show! Our server was very knowledgeable and helped us with wine pairings. We had two... More

came in at dinner time on a Friday without a reservation. We were able to be seated right away on the outdoor patio, it was a bit humid but no complaints from us. Since it was Nashville-Originals Restaurant Week we had a prefix menu as an option. The menu was inventive yet still traditional. Service was wonderful. shrimp and grits... More

Excellent food and very knowledgeable wait staff. They were very willing to work with our reservation, but since we arrived early they offered us a patio seat. Our server was very good and had good wine knowledge. He also invited me to try a Moscow mule, which was very refreshing.

Love how they keep creativity in the menu so that we don't get bored; yet some of our most popular favorites always seem to be there in some shape or fashion. We've never had anything we didn't like.

We've been to the Red Pony twice and both times it was wonderful! Great menu, interesting twist on a few dishes and all delicious! Service was perfect, environment quaint and cozy. We love it!
