I had dinner with clients from Franklin, they chose the Red Pony. Our waiter Michael was so experienced in beautifully describing each item on the menu. He brought us a sample of Chicken Potpie Soup, which was heavenly. I don't normally eat meat, but tried the Elk, which was so lean and delicious. Every item we had that night was... More

Red Pony is one of the nicest restaurants in Franklin. They have great food and excellent service. Their newly designed bar is a cozy and intimate place to hang out or wait for a table. Be sure to make reservations and ask for a table upstairs because it is more atmospheric and comfortable. The menu is geared toward meat eaters... More

One of my favorite restaurants is The Red Pony in Franklin, TN. The menu evolves with the seasons with some popular dishes as a constant. Not a lot of seafood mind you but very southern to say the least. The food is always good and good value. One of my pregame stops is the downstairs bar where Stefano works. One... More

We arrived a little early. Our reservation was at 6:45 so having read previous reviews we went to the upstairs bar. Just to let everyone know you really need a reservation. They are a busy restaurant.Once upstairs at the bar It took a few minutes but in all fairness Steven the bartender was multi tasking as people can eat upstairs... More

Walked in on a Saturday night and it was crowed. Did not have a reservation but, the hostess found us a table upstairs at the bar. Looking around I was expecting to see Faith Hill or Garth Brooks sitting next to me. A lot of good looking "trendy" thirty and forty year olds. After a day travelling I felt a... More

Ate at the bar. Upon request, Bar Manager, Stephano Mazzella, made me a Kettle One Martini so well shaken that I could "ice skate one it". Best martini ever! I ordered the Red Pony BLT for dinner. Bacon, Lobster, Yukon gold ravioli (Need I say More!). Never had bacon with my Lobster before. I'm forever changed! Chef Austin Garcia is... More

My husband and I stopped in for dinner and I wish we lived closer because this place is awesome. Even the decor and atmosphere is great, simple, elegant and modern. For dinner we had the pork lion and elk. Both were cooked to perfection- juicy, tender, and, oh so moist. The smashed potatos with the elk dish were so creamy... More

We recently had a meal here while on business. It was my kind of experience - we were never rushed and the food was extremely well prepared. Even the starter cocktails (I tried the Smokey and the Bandit) were highlights. The food as I mentioned was top notch. We had the BBQ Korean sushi for appetizer and everyone was very... More

Great atmosphere - attentive waiters - we had the guac. appetizer, the BLT as our main dish and the scallops. Also enjoyed a dirty martini - excellent all the way around - we are from New Orleans so we are spoiled to excellent cuisine. Red Pony delivered.
