Fairly large menu. Unique options. The food is excellent, but very rich. The bar does offer some specialty drinks. Overall, It's a fun experience. My only complaint is that it is very dark and dimly lit. It is also pretty loud and sometimes difficult to have conversation. The shrimp and grits are to die for!

We go often on special occasions and the food is excellent. The menu changes often and is filled with great variety. I have eaten all over the country and this is one of the best. The bartender is a master at mixology you won't be disappointed.

Excellent restaurant with good service. I recommend sharing apps and also the Lobster BLT was phenomenal. Everything served was fresh and cooked perfectly. The creme brûlée for dessert was divine and all moderately priced. I will be back!

We went with people we knew so they knew what to recommend as far as food and wine to drink. The people we went with reserved a table near a window so we had an great view of the shops below us. We found the food to be very good and the service excellent.

Tagged late reservation after long trip to Franklin. We were pleased with congenial greetings and service. Decor is well done. Blends well with building. Overall, we enjoyed meals albeit fairly over spiced and salty. Tone down these two tastes a tad so they don't overshadow and you're set!!!

We have tried this restaurant 2-3 times over the past couple of years and are always disappointed, The food is often way spicy and definitely overpriced. Service is also slow. It gets good reviews from others, though, so this is obviously just my opinion. I do know we are unlikely to return.

This restaurant has always delivered exceptional food, service beyond compare, and a wonderful atmosphere for intimate dinners during our visits, but last night was beyond all expectations. My wife and I are celebrating our 35th anniversary, and I had reserved a table that has become our favorite and delivered flowers for table. Kevin and the rest of the staff made... More

Visited the bar one afternoon while family was shopping. Bartender was great. Really knew his stuff and was great with the other patrons. Met some nice people. Ready to go back there and have dinner

My brother had arrived in town and wanted to take my daughter and me to dinner. Since moving to Franklin almost 7 years ago, our favorite "special" place to eat was the Red Pony. It was a late dinner for us, and we arrived around 8:30 and 9:00 on a Monday night. No problem, right? Wrong. There was no one... More
