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®".

Food items were well prepared. Waiter had difficulty with orders and kept on making excuses for the delay and mistakes, He also tended to push drinks. Need to better train waitstaff,

This is a great place to take out of town friends. I like to eat off of the bar menu and listen to the live entertainment that is there almost every night.

Not always does a restaurant handle a party of eleven adequately, but Cody's did an excellent job. Six adults and then the kids ranging in age from 10-15. We had hamburgers, Shrimp dishes, pasta's, salads, and lots of peanuts! All of us had a blast... food is good... service is good... the location and atmosphere is FUN! We come here... More

Great place for dinner. The kids love being able to throw the peanut shells on the floor. Good food for everyone.....traditional, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free appetites. Service has always been friendly and prompt.

This is a fun atmosphere with good food and the servers have great personalities. They have buckets of peanuts on the tables and you actually throw the shells on the floor..lol. They have great burgers, bottomless salad and great specials all at good prices. There is a variety of choices that can suit all tastes. Try it for the food... More

My wife and I like Cody's food so this was not our first visit for dinner. The food was great and the service good (considering the busy Friday night crowd). Further...the entertainer, Joe Allen, added to the fun evening and an overall delightful dining experience...

We waited quite a while for server to come take drink order, I had gone to restroom & back & no one had greeted hubby. Then it took a while for server to come back & take food order. However, hubby got early bird pulled pork & got a lot of food. Bottomless salad, yeast rolls, pulled pork on bread,... More

Atmosphere was great...good start to a great dinner. Food was below average as the steaks were poorly cooked. The wait staff were not only arguing with each other, they were flipping tables over to sweep peanut shells into piles while we were having our dinner. I would recommend looking elsewhere for a steak dinner.
