Red Pony Restaurant
Chef owned and operated, Red Pony changes its menu about six times a year with the intention of keeping ingredients the season’s freshest and the variety of dishes dynamic.
While a great deal of the menu pays homage to the Sophisticated Southern foods Chef Jason McConnell grew up on, you will also see a reflection of his travels, that drive his creativity.
It is our belief that food is something to be celebrated. We also believe that experience is a huge part of dining. Whether it be enjoying a crafted cocktail at one of our bars or enjoying dinner at the table, we want each guest to be seamlessly guided through their time at Red Pony Restaurant.
We love our community and we love food.

Unique menu with local twist.
Staff was so wonderful...Attentive but not assertive!
Kale Salad was amazing! Beef tenderloin cooked to perfection !
Food was outstanding and David was a very knowledgeable and attentive server. We will be back!
First time here and was not disappointed. The lamb chop appetizer was to die for! The wine selection was fantastic! And the entrees were fresh and unique! Our server was amazing! Will come back again!
Excellent experience. Food was amazing.
Red Pony helped us celebrate my husbands 45th perfectly! They printed happy birthday on the top of our menus, service was top notch! The martini was the best I’ve had in Nashville, the wine list is great, food is so good (lamb chops are a must) and our waitress even went across the street to get my 7 year old ice cream!!!
Celebrated sister in law and brother in law 50th anniversary at Red Pony. They were fantastic as always, but extra special tonight. All the menus were personalized with their names and celebration. Food was out of this world great. Each dish unique with such complex flavor.
Food was horrible. Server was rude.
Wonderful experience! All around great! Love how they use local farms! Definitely will be back!
Wait staff is always friendly and accommodating. I love the flavors of the food. The harissa lamb bolognese was so tasty! And I’m glad they could take us early at 5 PM. We love you guys!
Really expected more. The food was not good and the waiter was not professional. He kept checking back to the point of Pushing us out so he could get his tip.
I brought my husband for his birthday. Neither one of us had dined here before. I made online reservations and the day before our scheduled dinner, Brian called to confirm and told me he had a special table for us. From the ease of making the reservation all the way down to the last bite of dessert, the entire evening was impeccable! We discovered our new favorite place to dine!
Server not the best! (Very cocky) Food was very slow in between courses! One main dish was un edible! (Drowning in salt) Normally a favorite local spot!
Loved it. Eclectic menu and nicely executed. Service was impeccable.
Delicious food and great service!
We ate dinner here on NYE, the set menu was amazing! Our party really enjoyed the atmosphere and dessert. We will definitely be back! Brian at the front desk made our reservations easy and was very accommodating to ensure my food allergies were a priority.
Excellent as usual! The food, wait staff and restaurant set the high bar for Franklin. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great experience!
We enjoyed the menu on New Years Eve. The Brussel sprout Cesar salad was surprisingly delicious and different from the kale salad everyone seems to have these days. Also loved the butternut lasagna! So glad we tried it. Service was great!
Excellent restaurant in all ways!
Waaay overpriced NYE prix fixe menu. Not worth it at all.
Food was great, drinks were great, and service is great!
Extreme. Food quality, service quality, hospitality, everything. Even on NYE. Can’t miss.
It was ok, felt it was very over priced for the quality of my meal.
Wonderful flavorful food!
Love this place—Great Food, professional staff and they are consistent. Only complaint is the noise. Highly recommend requesting upstairs if you would like to have a conversation with your dinner partner.
Very loud, hard to have conversation.
Went to the Lotz House and just for a general outing. Great dinner. Thank you all so very much!
Being seated in the “Birdcage” was wonderful! Very quiet and cozy. Our waiter, Scott, was knowledgeable and professional!
Our dinner was truly excellent! Perhaps the best beet salad we have ever had and the entree's were also excellent as was our server Heather...we will be back!
Red Pony has a great ambiance. The staff is very professional and efficient with their service. For the price the food was good. We had a chicken dish that we did not realize was fried - we would have gotten a different main entre. The white fish special was very good. Overall a great spot unique to Franklin.
My favorite foodie place in Franklin. The staff went over and above for my mom's 69th birthday, even printing her name on the menus for our table. Loved our entire night including our server David who paced the food perfectly and took great care of us from start to finish. Michael also checked in several times to make sure our experience was on point. Our party enjoyed absolutely everything from the table and atmosphere to the food and the service. Terrific night out.
Had dinner with friends. Food was very good. Wife’s chicken schnitzel was one of the best she’s tried. I had sea bass which was slightly dry, but overall very good. Wine was a bit pricy. Ambiance was ok, just a little noisy. Server, Jason, did an excellent job. Overall, a very enjoyable experience. Will defined be back.
Noise level was a little higher than I would have liked.
Additionally, the table we were place at was really too large for our group.
Our server was great, but the overall experience would have been better in a little quieter environment with a less massive table.
Always the highlight of our time in Franklin— everything was absolutely perfect from service to food, & the ambiance is the warmest in downtown Franklin. A perfect night, thanks to all!
I took my wife for her birthday. It was our first visit. She ordered the sea bass and I had the pork t-bone. Our meals were both excellent! Our service was excellent. The restaurant created souvenir menus with her name on the menu and they were signed by the owner and the chef. We could actually hear ourselves talk. The ambiance was very pleasant. We’re gonna go back.
Heather was great, special treat, personalized and autographed menus , loved it
Excellent food, service & hospitality!
Waiter has been there about 6 months. Worked exceptionally well with my friend and chef so she had excellent gluten and dairy free petite fillet plus sweet potato and broccolini. I had lamb chops and beets salad. Both choices were superb.
Amazing beef starter and tasty Brussels. Lamb chops very tender, good wine selection and excellent service.
Thanks for making our anniversary dinner special!
