Friend had the shrimp and grits. Waitress was very helpful and accommodating to one in our party who had dietary limitations. A very memorable... More

The Red Pony is eleven years old now. In the last year or two they have really worked hard to up their game. Now the food, service, and facility are world class. Last night's dinner was more pleasant, better tasting, and more memorable than my last meal at The French Laundry. My wife swooned over her BBQ Salmon. Our friends... More

As part of our vacation to Nashville, we made a day trip to Franklin. We were remiss on not making reservations for a Friday night so the six of us winged it. We had heard good things about the Red Pony from some friends. We went there hoping to get in. We arrived at 7 and were told first opening... More

We made reservations for a Saturday night and only had to wait a few minutes. The hostess was from our home state so we had fun talking while the table was set. The old brick walls and exposed beams a put us at ease. The place did not seem uppity at all and everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. Loved... More

Red Pony is really a phenomenal find! The service is outstanding and the entrees and appetizers are delicious. The halibut and steaks were cooked perfectly and the lamb chops were loaded with flavor! Don't miss this spot, you will love it!

Good southern cooking and vast selection on the menu. Small town restaurant on Main street, provides an excellent dinning experience.
