A stone throw away from the shore, Cody's is in a great location, which makes it popular and it is certainly difficult to find a table on a Saturday afternoon. The menu is simple but varied and the staff friendly. Good all round for a quick meal.

Thanks Trip Advisor folks for the recommendation. Our first visit to La Jolla. Cody's is a great place. Service was great. .. The view of the ocean from the restaurant patio wonderful. I had a BLT and a family member had the fish and chips. Both good... not spectacular. The B in the BLT was a little tough. May have... More

Have come here several times before, never sat inside before. DO NOT SIT INSIDE, way too noisey! Speakers blaring hardrock music by my ear. Service is always good here. They overcooked my pancakes this time and did offer me something else. Was a very busy Sunday for them.

The food was great here. Loved the patio and a bit of an ocean view. The lobster roll was really good. Cody's menu was intriguing and I would love to go there again and try more items and when we have more time to just chill. We were on our way to a kayaking appointment and couldn't stay as long...

Ate here based on TA reviews and we were not disappointed. Several reviews mentioned the Lobster Roll and after trying it I think it's one of the better items on the menu. It is a little pricey but you get a lot of Lobster and it was really delicious. I can say it's one of the better Lobster Rolls I've... More

Always good when we can find a place that easily offers gluten free (celiac) choices. We both had the mahi mahi tacos which were very good. Fresh, and served fast. The restaurant is very popular and we had to wait for a table. Overall if I in the area and were hungry would stop in again. Probably would not wait... More

Sat on the patio on a warm Oct. afternoon. There was a cool breeze and it was pleasant under the shaded umbrellas. I ordered the fish and chips which has been on the menu since it opened. Tempura coated pacific ling was the best fried fish I've ever had. My husband's BLT was awesome. White sangria with fresh fruit was... More

The food here is great. Their French toast is the best I've ever had. Omelets were very good. Service was great too.

Had a wonderful breakfast here last week. Reminds me of those old fashioned seashore restaurants. Good food, good service and great memories. We had the best seat in the house, the outside table in the corner of the patio; A great Breeze and not too hectic. The coffee came in large mugs and was delicious. We had to have the... More

I give them 5 stars for food and service. Husband and I split both the French Toast and the Yogurt Granola Bowl. The French toast was the best I have every had. The Granola bowl was delicious as well. The menu is a bit hard to read, different fonts and layouts for different items. We actually almost didn't even read... More
