Not our first time here Service Standards are slipping Been here before on a manic night with no tables free and 40 minute wait, and service was excellent Tonight, very slow, not what is expected amongst fierce competition, slow for drinks, slow for order, slow for meal

We have dined at Cody's in Brownwood three times in the past two weeks and find the food and service to be consistently excellent. We will return. The fish I had tasted fresh and was well prepared, not over cooked. My husband enjoyed a small steak another time he had a small steak and I had fish again. Our server... More

Went on a Sunday for football. Went to the bar to sit. The host said it was open seating. We went and talked to the bar tender to ask which t.v. a certain game was on. Since there are 7 of them he said the late games have only 3 that day that 1 of them would be my team.... More

We went to get our usual fun, drinks and food at Cody's and asked for a seat outside by the music - and had to wait as the line was long - no problem. When our turn came, we were taken outside, but not near the music and told there were no seats near the music. When we objected, and... More

The atmosphere in the Cody's at Brownwood Town Square is eclectic and fun! The Happy Hour drinks are tempting. The menu is varied with steaks, ribs, seafood, and chicken and salads. The appetizers sounded delicious. My husband got the ribs entree, and I ordered a custom cobb salad. The cobb salad came out all messed up with the wrong ingredients... More

Six of us arrived on a Friday night around 6:15 pm and the place was packed. Were told it would be a 30-35 minute wait but to our delight our name was called after only 10 minutes. Place is noisy and tables are close together but guess that is what draws people. This is one of those places where a... More

Cody's is a fun place where you can throw peanut shells on the floor (don't slip on them), have happy hour two beers for the price of one and get early bird specials. Be careful though, sometimes those early bird specials are not of top quality, good but not best...I give you the prime rib as an example. The first... More

This is the first Cody's to open in the Villages. They just opened another in the Brownwood square too! Since we got there before 6PM my wife took advantage of the early bird menu, from 4pm, and if you are seated by 6pm. She got the baked half chicken, ($10.98) and added a sweet potato for like $1.40. Came with... More

We very recently went to Cody's with another couple for dinner. Fortunately we were able to get reservations. Three of us had the lobster surf and filet turf dinners and the other person had the steak. The place was as good as ever and we have been there many times before. Service is always good and they really do not... More

Come to Cody's with your appetite. On THursdays they celebrate their anniversary with 2 meals for $19.74. We had the baby back ribs. There were chicken, fish and pork choices as well. Where do you get delicious, meaty ribs for under $10? The meal comes with an unlimited salad bowl - it is already dressed with a creamy dressing. The... More
