I went to school in Upstate NY so I know a good wing. Pleasantly surprised by the "Ramey" wings - which are the equivalent of HOT in upstate. Bar menu items were tasty too. Had the Bar Burger, which is the perfect snack size. Didn't even need ketchup or mustard. The onion rings are huge and a bit on the... More

An afternoon snack and beer at the bar was great. They feature a great bar menu and drink specials that make for a great value. The quality of the food was great and the beer selection good. Will return.

After several visits I gave up on them but, I tried once more. Just had a marginally edible sirloin steak for lunch...will be my last visit...I Don't know how they can charge for this stuff? And, why do Villagers go there? If you want to test a new set of dentures, this is your place, otherwise...you are warned.

We like to bring friends to Cody's. It is especially good to bring kids and small groups. They love eating the salted peanuts on the shell and throwing the shells on the floor. Try the outside bar with nightly entertainment.

+ The service was impeccable. The food was very tasty, hot, and served promptly. THE ATMOSPHERE WAS GOOD AND IF YOU WANTED TO WATCH TV, THERE WAS A GIANT LED MONITOR ON THE WALL. Seating gave us enough room and there were peanuts on the table.

We stayed at The Villages Sept. 2014 to preview moving there. Everything about the Villages was absolutely wonderful & we're going to move there. We ate at Cody's, wanting a nice steak dinner for our last night in The Villages. They had an early bird menu, which we were unaware of so it was a nice surprise, if you ordered... More

My parents took my husband and me to the restaurant. We were there in time for happy hour, wow I ordered a strawberry daiquiri and I got my money's worth. It was very tasty and BIG. Everyone enjoyed their food. The salad and dinner rolls were also wonderful. The manager comes around and talks to every table, what a bonus.... More

Thought our family would try something new and check out Cody's. Things started off great we were greeted and sat promptly. We ended up asking to move outside to the porch area, b/c our young son was tired and we didnt want him to ruin the other guests eating their meals. They were great and moved us no problem. But...

OK let me start my review off by saying this was my first visit to a Cody's Origanal Roadhouse. Seems to me this is just another wanna be LoneStar Steakhouse, Texas Roadhouse, etc. etc. There is to many to name. Our dining experience at this location (Brownwood) started off pretty good. The hostess were very friendly and polite. They told... More

The Cody's in Brownwood just opened. We stopped with friends on Sunday evening. Our food and service were wonderful. There were at least two large groups that had called ahead and were accommodated as well. We always enjoy Cody's and now at Lake Sumter and Brownwood.
