We had a party of 5 so were seated upstairs. The night we went they also had elk on the menu. The service and food were very good, but with each of us having a salad or appetizer, then the main meal along with a drink each, it was about $60 each before we went out the door.

I travel all the way from Florida to enjoy this establishment. The food is fantastically fresh and full of flavor. The staff clearly enjoys working there and always provide excellent recommendations.

Very special dining experience. Staff did a great job explaining the menu. We started with sweet potato biscuits stuffed with homemade duck bacon and cherry jelly. So flavorful and the bacon was smoked to perfection. Entrees consisted of fresh lobster ravioli, rib eye steak, elk tenderloin. All superb dishes. The elk was very flavorful and tender. Red Pony is highly... More

Great waiter. Menu is not overly complex and the food is excellent. Some different non-standard items and everything came out perfectly. Well worth a visit. If you are not used to slightly different food, look over the menu before going but I'm sure with the level of creativity ion the kitchen that they can adapt any item to your liking.

One of the best meals we had while visiting Nashville. It's about 45 min away, but well worth it. Franklin is a nice little town with lots of shops so it makes for a nice day to get out of the city. This restaurant was recommended on TripAdvisor and well worth the visit. Friendly staff, great service and delicious food.... More

Fantastic dinner! Great service. Nice wine and cocktails. Their appetizer sushi was simply amazing! The elk entree was great as well. Pricey but we'll worth it. Great spot for romantic dinner or upscale dining

Located on main street, nestled among unique retail shops, this fine dining experience opens at 4pm for bar drinks & 5pm for dinner. We used open table 2 get a 5pm dinner reservation and were greated/seated promptly in the downstairs dining room that featured a large picture window into the kitchen. Chef owned, the attention & execution of the menu... More

While visiting a friend, we hoped to enjoy a taste of Franklin's downtown vibe and southern cuisine in an inviting, but somewhat low key atmosphere, conducive to conversation. Red Pony filled the bill on all counts! The food was nuanced and delicious. Adam, our waiter, was helpful and attentive. The ambiance was just right for catching up with a friend... More
