Horrible bar. Way to loud, disgusting furniture, etc. My biggest gripe is that they RIP BANDS OFF! They will book a band at an agreed upon price and then pay 1/2 when the night is over and no one is there to argue with. BANDS SHOULD NOT PLAY THIS VENUE. YOU WILL BE RIPPED OFF!
The Pond. Franklin Tennessee.
Quiet (usually empty), incredibly over-priced dive bar nestled in a non-descript strip mall between a liquor store and hair salon. Owner, Eddie, is a character, and by that I mean an arrogant, self-important, cheap, penny-pinching ignoramous who will mildly amuse you with his backwoods politics, high school football brain damage and cartoonish buck-toothed laughter.
Order a vodka tonic, and he wants to charge you an extra .50 for a lime wedge. $6 well drinks (Happy Hour) are watered down so much you think you're drinking old tap water. AND he gets moody if you don't tip him for his lousy service, bad attitude, horse laughter, boring politics, and generally abrasive disposition. The man is ignorant (which is forgiveable) and proud of it (which is not). Likes to pretend he knows something about insert-subject-here (which he doesn't), while musing over the daily intellectual offerings of Lynyrd Skynyrd playing in the background.
My advice: go just around the corner to Mickey Roos. Great drinks, good food, friendly and fun atmosphere, cordial and polite and cute bartenders, and no old man laughing in your face who has teeth like a horse and breath like a sack of his own crap.
