Lunch with a view

Corn and crab chowder absolutely wonderful. It was a great combination. The crab did not over power and was not overpowered.. The Mahi Mahi tacos were fabullous.

sat at a table on the deck with a view of the bay. Sunny, a little breeze to keep us cooled off. Had the French Toast, one of their signature dishes it was great! Beet salad with salmon added was also an excellent choice. and the Salmon serving, fish and chips, and fish tacos were all a hit with the... More

First time eating here, with great ocean views. The food was fabulous - - corn and crab chowder in a bread bowl, chopped salad, BLT - - - tasty beer - - you can't go wrong! Ate on the patio with fantastic service and relaxing atmosphere! Highly recommend!

We've been eating a Cody's for many years now -- it's one of our favorite local restaurants. Just off busy Prospect in La Jolla, and very near the Cove, it's easy to park somewhere in the village, and just walk. Seating on the patio is pleasant on a nice day as you will most likely have a view of the... More

Great place to dine outdoors and view the ocean at La Jolla beach. A little pricy for breakfast, but interesting and delicious menu items. Everything tasted very fresh. A great central location if you want to shop or walk the beach after breakfast.

This place is one block from the shore. Sit outside on the patio and enjoy fabulous views. At $30 per person (including tax and tip) for breakfast, this restaurant isn't cheap but the food is really good and service is exceptional. Overall, I highly recommend it and would definitely return.

I ordered the BLT with avocado - one of the best I've had - artisan bread and bacon. The side salad came with the most yummy dressing. Everything was well prepared with care (not just thrown on the plate). The staff was friendly and attentive. If you are in La Jolla and looking for a relaxed atmosphere with great food,... More

Pulled into La Jolla to see the cove on my way up to LA as part of a work trip. Ended up in La Jolla around lunch and hopped on TripAdvisor to see where to go. Cody's stuck out to me and I found it easily. I had the Mahi tacos. They were exquisite. The hot sauce selection didn't disappoint... More

Sat down before the crowd started to gather, maybe 8:20am on a very busy Sunday (marathon was in town). Ordered, food was delivered maybe 10 minutes later. Efficient service service. Food prices were reasonable, I got the French toast, it was very tasty. Would go back again.
