“Great food, atmosphere and drinks...”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Went out with a couple of new collegues and suggested going to Red Pony for a good meal. It was a quiet Monday night and we ate upstairs. The drinks/cocktails were great. The oatmeal stout beer and the dark/stormy were excellent starters. The breads were delicious along with the calamari and lamb for apps. We all were in a mood for steak and decided to steal some ideas of grabbing some bone in ribeyes from Cork and Cow. (Their sister restaurant). CHase the waiter was excellent and food superb..Great night.

“Great Food and Location”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

Great food with a fun urban vibe in Franklin. Passing through the Nashville area twice over the holidays we had the pleasure to dine here and enjoyed both visits. With an interesting varied menu and attentive service the two visits were similar but different in a very good way.

“Best pork chop I've ever had”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This place was a real treat and considering we sort of just stumbled upon it made it that much better. I was in Tennessee for business and decided to come back to Franklin as I had been here previously and it was so worth it. This restaurant is fantastic. Great service, great wine list (we had a bottle of "The Prisoner" and it was excellent. The meal I had was the sous vide pork chop and it was really the best thing I've had in a long time. I'm not sure the specifics of the sous vide technique but it has something to do with marinating the pork chop in honey and butter and placing in a bag in a pot of water where the cooking temperature is regulated at a certain temperature. No matter how they do it, it's amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.

“Excellent dinner”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

We visited the Red Pony with friends on a. Saturday evening and enjoyed a great meal. We started the meal with guacamole and chips that was excellent! One of the best ever!

Our server was very good and described the entrees with such flair! At our table we had entrees - shrimp and grits and the lobster BLT. They were excellent, but I thought the shrimp and grits was radically different than a traditional dish and I probably would not reorder, but the menu is very good. Overall we had a delicious meal and wonderful dinner. This is a great restaurant.
