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®".

Fun atmosphere and good food

This was my first time to visit and was not disappointed at all. The ribeye and crab legs were fantastic. We sat on the patio and enjoyed music from the dj and 2 for 1 drinks

The evening of August 15th visited Cody's while visiting the Villages area for my first time, my Husband's second. My Husband inquired about ordering a bottle of wine and was told of a very limited stock, out of this, out of that. Our waitress, Sheryl, was incredibly nice, considerate, trying to accommodate us with something to our liking; only to... More

It was my birthday and my daughter and son in law took me to Cody's. Their first time, and my many times. Loved the beer and wings - just perfect. They are always cooked fresh - the wings, not the beer. They loved the peanuts shells on the floor - quaint. Try it with anyone - especially family.

Went for late lunch and just got a salad. My buddy got the turkey/noodle soup. Both were good and filling. The waitress kept both coming since it was all you could eat. She forgot out utensils so we waited for a few minutes on that but overall it was good.

Enjoyed Codys outdoor seating. Inside and out was not as clean as I would expect from a Village establishment. Enjoyed live entertainment and a few beers. Complimentary peanuts for bar patrons. Tried the onion rings. Certainly the best I've had in awhile, nice and crispy and the onion stayed in tact with each bite.

We both ordered the roasted chicken and it was overcooked. The wings were burnt and the rest of the chicken was very dry. The side Broccoli was very old and not cooked properly. The salad was very mushy as if it sat in dressing all day and the rolls were stale.
