Tubs of roasted peanuts are available throughout for snackin', crackin' or throwin' on the floor. You'll enjoy Cody's fresh cut, flame broiled, USDA prime and choice Steaks, Prime Rib, Rotisserie Chicken, Pork Back Ribs, Fresh, Fresh Fish, Burgers, Fajitas and more. At Cody's, we're proud of our expert cooking skills and we've put the grill front and center for your viewing.All told, Cody's Original Roadhouse is a fun, casual, family friendly Roadhouse that serves "Just Plain Good Food®". You won't go home hungry or broke - you'll just go home happy!

Not bad

Had a couple of drinks at the bar, and I must say that the service was not very friendly. Bartender was too busy talking to another worker about his upcoming schedule and working too many hours etc...

Tried Cody's a few times and never had a good experience. Food is very average and service was just slow. To many other places to try, like Gator Dockside in Spanish Springs.

We were 4 couples having a light supper. We were seated, but did not get menus or set ups. We had to go to the bar for our drinks! Finally our waiter appeared, took our order and our wait for the food and service was awful! Plus, my husband never got his food. We were swatting flies all night long.... More

Food was ok, but very much fast food based. Enjoyed the draft Sierra Nevada. Quirky nutshells all over the floor. Customers given monkey nuts free and encouraged to discard shells on the floor.

Just received horrible service. Waitress Heidi was slow and inattentive. We never received a refill for the whole meal until we flagged down manager Brian who didn't seem to care we were receiving bad service. No excuses the restaurant was almost empty. No apologie from Brian the Manger and no offer for a discount on the bill. Not the kind... More

This was our 3rd time there, it's been great every time. During "prime season" - before the snow birds leave, it is always crowded for dinner. They do take reservations, as we did it once for a party of 18. Happy Hour daily 11am - 7pm, great deal. Steaks are wonderful. My last time there for lunch, I ordered a... More

We ate an early dinner here with another couple. The place has a "beach-house" flavor and is pretty noisy. We were seated immediately and the waitress came with menus. Drinks arrived promptly, There were specials on the menu, but two of us choose from the regular menu. When the orders were delivered, all four of us had items from the... More
