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

We went for a late lunch. I had chicken quesadillas and my husband had the chicken fried chicken. It was just okay for us, nothing special. Our waitress was not very friendly even when we tried to make conversation.

Searching for our future retirement home we selected Cody's in Lake Sumter for dinner. The food is good. Service was a little slow but ok. Not being very hungry my wife and aI I just ordered a bowl of soup to save room for dessert. I would say the chocolate cake and carrot cake was worth the money plus more.... More

Probably because it IS (surprise!!!) a "Roadhouse Grille" .....dark for a reason. It was 97 degrees in the shade here in The Villages today, the Sun... More
