We went to Cody's in Ocala with friends who live closer, and they suggested it. I ordered the prime rib, and it was outstanding - the best I had ever had. The service was very good as well. I went to the one in The Villages, and it was such a madhouse, it was not enjoyable. I will drive the... More

I waited over 10 minutes before my server appeared. I had two other servers walk by and ignored me sitting waiting to order. I would not have minded if they at least acknowledge that I was waiting. The house salad in bottomless and the house ranch is nothing special. The butter for the rolls is sweet and not to my... More

This is a down to earth restaurant with very nice and efficient employees. We were only here for 4 days and ate here twice. I like the fact that not only does your waitress introduce herself and write her name on the tablecloth (which is paper), but she also writes the name of the manager on duty. Very good food... More

Our first visit to this restaurant was uneventful but nice. Our server, Bob, was helpful with all our questions and very attentive. I opted for the prime rib and shrimp blackened.

We have been at this restaurant a couple times, and is just a regular restaurant, service is slow, the food mediocre and prices too high for what they serve.
