I have been to this Cody's two times now and Crystal River two times. The first time, my husband and I sat on the covered patio outside. There was a live singer which was a nice touch for dinner. The food and service was perfect! So I did not hesitate to meet my friend for lunch there. Totally different experience!... More

This was our first visit to Cody's and we didn't leave impressed. After being seated we waited at least 10 minutes for someone to take our drink orders. By that time we were ready to order so we placed our orders. After another 10 minutes our bar drinks finally arrived. When the food arrived one steak was overlooked (ordered medium... More

We were here with another couple for a Sunday lunch. We were all happy. There are plenty of specials, and the regular menu is filled with things so that everyone could find something they would enjoy. The servers are nice, and the kitchen is quick.

I so enjoyed a (winter time vacation) lunch outside on the lake. I tried the BBQ and fries and I must say it was some of the best I'e ever had. Fun atmosphere and full of energy. Staff was great. What can I say?? That place was great. A must do in the villages.

Always busy - especially on weekends - for several reasons. Cheap 2 for 1's on draft beer, soda and well drinks. Super friendly staff. The bar menu is really yummy and cheap: a juicy, hot burger with toppings for under $3! I was there in steamy June but the lake breezes, AC and fans cooled things down big time. This... More

I love to go there and have their fried chicken wings w/garlic the atmosphere is fun the bartenders are the best. The waiters and waitresses are fast and you don't have to wait. They are all on top of things. I go with friends or alone and I'm very comfortable.

A spontaneous trip to Cody;s for a light supper. Waiter name Jess was personable, shared about our experience and did a super job. The food was excellent, portioned right. Hard to beat. Cody's need to figure out how to make all their servers act like Jessie.
