Food is good and staff is caring and friendly. Children are welcome. Only drawback is the noise level making normal conversation somewhat difficult.

We love to go to Cody's especially on Sunday. They have special meals after church. It is enough food that you will want to take home box.

Cody's is part of a very small chain in the SE. Décor is unique "roadhouse" with lots of memorabilia. Peanuts on the table; throw the shells on the floor. Generous drinks, especially the wine.

They have free peanuts and their bar burger is really good. Outside seating you can see the lake. This is one of the restaurants we go to often.

OK place just not my cup of tea. Sometimes way to noisy because of the outside music. Nice outside seating area facing the lake.
