We have eaten here on several occasions and have been pleased with the food and the service until yesterday. We went early, 4:15 to avoid the crowds so they were not busy. Perhaps it was because we sat outside on the deck which is no excuse for the slow service and "below average food". We had 3 different waitresses and... More

We already did hear a lot of Cody's and decided yesterday to drop in for lunch. We were not desappointed at . Funny decoration and friendly service. I did order Haddock, with salad,rice and French Fries. The Haddock was very tasty, not dry at all and the French Fries by far the best we had in Florida. My husband did... More

There are two (2) Cody's locations in the Villages. The oldest in Lake Sumter and a recently opened location in Brownwood. Both locations have excellent service and food, in my opinion. And, both are pretty much equal in locale for my family, but I prefer the physical layout of the newer location in Brownwood. It has a much better arranged... More

We went to Cody's on Nov 9, 2014. We had a great experience. It was on a Sunday and we went for the specials. I reneged. I had the rib eye with baked potatoes. I'm really critical when I order a steak out, because I charcoal grill a mean steak myself. I would give this steak a 4 of 5.... More

Went with friends last night and waited about 15 minutes for a table. The hostess seated us at a high table in the bar area where lots of cigarette smoke was a real problem. We asked for another table and were handed another pager and told to wait. People came in and were seated while we waited. We spoke up... More

We ate here on Thanksgiving. I think the Thanksgiving selections could have been a little better, but we each had a fantastic selection none-the-less. Some of the best prime rib I had eaten and the service was stupendous. Servers were there on many occasions that warranted it..the spilling of a full glass of wine, errors in the entrée served, refills... More

Very nice place to go for casual dining. The food is excellent and the prices are low. I love the French Dip sandwich, loaded with meat and accompanied with a very good Au Jus dipping sauce. They have discount burgers all day and onion rings that are sold seperately (they are very big). My wife raves about the salmon saying... More

Nothing great, nothing awful. Standard bar steakhouse food. Waitress did not know they served Guiness even though on menu and they had a sign. No bread provided.

Great place to go after church for Sunday specials. They have all you can eat salad, rolls, main course and dessert. The outside seating at the new Brownwood is really nice and open also..

It's noisy and usually crowded. But the 2-for-one drink specials, onion ring tower, free peanuts, generous family-style salad and regular specials make this a fun place to go. Have gone several times and never disappointed. Good value.
