The village seems to close down by nine in the evening. Staff this particular night seemed to want me to move along quickly. I was only offered bar seating. I had the rotisserie chicken and salad . It was very good. The bar server was friendly but food service was slow. I generally like Codys and I enjoy their salads.

The atmosphere at Cody's is "down home" western style. Staff is cheery, helpful and service is excel not. It's noisy but not to a level where you can't have table conversations. The early bird menu has fantastic prices. I think they are good until 6pm. I had delicious, lean 8oz prime rib for $14! They toss a huge salad right... More
