My waitress, calli, was great. She made sure i had everything I needed. Beer was nice and cold- 2 for 1 but turns out my beer was $7. Salad was great. Steak undercooked but I don't like to send food back- wish I had because it really wasn't worth price. Was disappointed when walked in a few minutes before 6... More

We had never been to Cody's, but we were attracted by the great look of the outside of the restaurant. The inside decor proved equally impressive. I just wish the food matched the appearance of the restaurant. The beef brisket and pulled pork contained a lot of fat smothered in BBQ sauce. The yeast rolls with cinnamon butter were good....

Lazy waitress, tough steak, just a disappointment all the way around. May have caught it on a bad time since everyone says its so good, but I know I'll never be back.

Been to this place several times and each time the service gets worse. They are very slow at getting the food out. Ok, I get it when it is crowded. But when you go for lunch and there is hardly anyone they and it takes over 45 minutes to get the food is totally unacceptable.

I loved the décor of this restaurant, both inside and out. The food was excellent. We visited early in the week, fortunately, so we ate here more than once. The house salad with the house dressing is excellent. It complements their meals. A great place for lunch and dinner. Friendly staff that goes out of their way to make you... More

Had better. I was just looking for a light meal and ordered the potato skins. The waiter also recommended the fried green tomatoes and that sounded really good but I was extremely disappointed. They were cold and the breading wasn't even done all the way through, crispy on the outside, raw in the middle. Potatoes seemed like they had been... More

Went to this place purely because there was no wait the day before Valentines. However my wife an I were pleasantly surprised with primarily the food. The fact that they have special sauces specifically for different menu items, this impressed us greatly when comparing Cody's to other places. For example the coconut shrimp where great stand alone, possibly the best... More

The food and service was wonderful. Everyone needs to try the house Ranch dressing. Best I have ever tasted.
