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®".

If you like Peanuts

Weds. Fajitas are a good value 2 for 1. Peanuts tho' plentiful, aren't top quality. Caesar salad very good. Nice setting, fun decor

We wanted to eat outside so we went to Cody's. We were seated promptly. The table was dirty so that turned me off. It was happy hour as well as two for one fajitas. We ordered two Margaritas and two fajita combos (Chicken, beef, and shrimp). I found the Margarita too sweet and obviously made from a premix. The fajitas... More

Visited The Villages and our friends wanted to eat at Cody's during happy hour. I ordered prime rib and coconut shrimp. Fish and meat were good. Ordered a loaded garlic mashed potato as my side. When I got it it was not loaded so I asked for that. What I got was cold butter, cold cheese put on top of... More

Early bird specials are a great value includes unlimited salad. Food consistently good. So hooked on pork chop, chopped steak and salmon that we hesitate to try anything else. Sweet potato is the best in the area, in my judgement even better than Outback and Oakwood. Rice and beans side also good, nice portion great flavor. Servers are among the... More

Enjoyed a great meal at Cody's, we both had steak. Fun place, peanuts to eat, shells all over the floor. 2-4-1 drinks are incredible! Very casual, fun place to eat a good meal.

If you are looking for a decent meal, 2 for 1 drinks, large menu with a good variety : fajitas, burgers, sandwiches, steak then this is a good place to go. This was our first time here and I would come back for appetizers and drinks.

Great bartenders with a top shelf, two for one happy hour and free in the shell peanuts. Outside seating; a nice way to spend a couple of hours and enjoy a couple of good, cheap drinks. One of only two places in Sumter Landing with a top shelf happy hour (the other is The Lighthouse).

I have tried Cody's at 3 different locations. Food is so-so; your order comes out its always wrong or the meat isn't done properly, not is it ever hot - mostly lukewarm or cold. Food is not the best quality. As for the service it stinks. Wait staff takes your order and when the food comes to you its wrong... More
