A fun place to dine. Funky atmosphere and eclectic decor. Wait staff is excellent and very friendly and attentive. Food is good and early bird specials are a bargain. Out door on the patio or bar has a view of the lake. The live entertainment can be quite loud at times so plan your seating accordingly.

Never had a bad meal here, eat there often. We especially like the Wednesday 2 for 1 dinner. They are open until 10, good place to catch a meal if out later.

Even during the summer, Cody's is busy. Consistently good food at treasonable prices creates a loyal clientele.

Cody's Original Roadhouse sits in the middle of The Villages' universe right on Lake Sumter's Market Square. If you are going to Market Square for anything, Cody's is right there. There are good views of the lake from both inside and outside seating. Live music is performed every evening on the Square. There are often shows and exhibits right there... More
