Road Sign, The Painted Pony Restaurant, Bethlehem, CT

American Food, such as pizza and sandwiches. Check out the great reviews they receive.

Catherine A.There were 4 of us at the table, 2 ordered prime rib and the other ordered the salmon. No complaints about the food, the sweet potato tots were really good and something a little different from an ordinary potato.
I would definitely recommend this place if you do the filet medallions definitely ask for them a little lower than the actual temp you want.
Great atmosphere, the bar was definitely happening for a Sunday evening.

Whitney P. I had dinner here for my father's birthday tonight. Excellent service and the food was spectacular. I am a restaurant professional and I appreciated the quality of service and care. Thank you, Brian and Millie, for an enjoyable evening

Your troubles will definitely be dropped when you pop into the Painted Pony and enjoy their wonderful blend of atmosphere, service, budget-friendly pricing, generous portions, and some pretty darned great food.

I started off with a cup of their…  an insanely wonderful homemade Greek soup made with chicken broth, rice, eggs, and lemon. It was a pretty decent sized cup that was worth every penny of its $3.50 price tag.

The rest of our order was a small focaccia pizza with meatballs ($9) and a half Turkey/ham combo grinder ($9) served on fresh Italian bread, with cheese, lettuce, and tomato. We were very satisfied with both dishes.

The pizza turned out to be a very large portion of… of eight wedges. I was struck by not how many meatball slices were set on the pizza, but how thick they were. In fact, the word "slabs" fits a lot better than the word "slice".  That pizza was great.

The Combo sandwich… was delicious, and we ended up splitting the half sandwich so that the picture you see is half of the served portion.

Lunch ran a very reasonable $27 and we took home a good percentage of that large pizza portion.

Hey, I almost forgot to tell you about their complimentary garlic bread served piping hot straight from the oven!

Bottom line is that we really enjoyed every aspect of our Saturday lunch. Well done, Painted Pony!
