My husband and I recently dined at the Red Pony for our anniversary dinner. It was one of the most pleasurable dining experiences we have ever had! The waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu, made suggestions and explained how it's made. He was very enthusiastic about each item and with good reason...Everything was unique and delicious.

My wife and I went to the Red Pony to celebrate our anniversary. We sat upstairs in the bar area off the main dining room. It was actually a nice place to sit as it seemed much more quiet and intimate than the main dining room. We started off with some great cocktails - that you could actually taste the... More

The food was okay. Nothing special. I had the filet and it was good but I would have loved a baked potato. They don't have them. You have to get the cheesy mashed potatoes which I found to be gloppy and gluey. My husband got some pork chops and they were a bit on the tough side. The guacamole was... More

The menu was very eclectic making this a good choice for many different tastes. The appetizers varied from lamb chops to pizza, which I thought was a bit unusual, but touched upon about every category one could want and staying true to their philosophy. We had a table right by the window looking into the kitchen so it felt like... More

After a full day of attractions we came upon the Red Pony and liked the menu that was displayed outside so we decided to give it a try. They sat us at a rooftop terrace table, which was just wonderful. The selection of food was varied and actually made it hard to choose, However, I can say that everyone at... More

we were asked for ID when we ordered drinks with our meal - it has bp never happened before in the U.S. and the way it was done, without explanation, made for an uncomfortable few moments ( we are in our sixtieth decade!) our friend told it was the law and we complied but felt an explanation at the outside...

We had a late (9:00 p.m.) reservation, but it was worth it! We were in Franklin for a girls' trip - my first there. The menu was varied, making it difficult to choose! The drink and wine selections were eclectic and intriguing as well. We shared appetizers of quail biscuits with blackberry jam as well as homemade guacamole (best EVER)... More

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
