If you value your health, PLEASE DO NOT EAT AT THIS RESTAURANT!!! There are roaches crawling out of the walls and floors, across tables, across food and apparently in the salad cooler where salads are made by un-gloved servers and roaches in the coolers where salads bowls and plates are kept. Poor communication between servers and kitchen staff. Food is... More

I remember when this place opened up. You couldn't get a parking space and you would be lucky to even get a table. The food was good, the service was quick, and the staff was friendly. Fast forward to today. Super easy to get a parking spot and you can be sat immediately. One would think that would be a... More

I remember the days of the tossed salad at your table. It came with a cold plate and sometimes a freezing fork. This made just about as much sense. It is a nice touch, but, in a place where the food is mediocre, it seems out of place. In a roadhouse setting it is bizarre, I had Idaho trout. The... More

Our family of four went for dinner. Kids ate free since Tuesday. My chicken was not great. Salad good, potato needed to be hotter. Rolls good. Husband got steak..was good. I think hit or miss here depending on what you order. I wouldn't recommend Panko chicken. Waitress very friendly. Quiet from other times we've been. With tip and draft beers... More

I took my husband here for Father's Day, and we ordered a 2 for 1 drink special, mojitos, and they were absolutely terrible, so we asked for another drink, and told our server that the drinks were bad. She immediately began saying she'd have to get a manager, because the drinks were a special and we can't get other drinks... More

Save your time, money and stomach by not going to this restaurant. Our waitress was wonderful, the manager very understanding, but the food was horrible!

We've been to Cody's several times and each time I have left full and satisfied. Love their stacked onion rings! Since they cut their own steaks and grind their own hamburger, I love their hamburger steak because I can order it rare/med rare like I like it. Most other places will not serve it like that because they don't gring... More

Wide range of food served here. My husband and I visited this place 2 times for lunch within one week. Both times I had the fish & chips and it was terrific. The fish was a huge portion. Our food came out quickly and was piping hot. All of the staff was very friendly. The manager made rounds and spent... More

Stopped in yesterday and got the biggest slab of ribs I've ever seen served at a restaurant. I thing they were from a terradactle.Excellent bread rolls and my partners got fried shrimp and man they were good as well. Loaded bake potato and lots of cold sweet tea.Great price for the portions.We will all be back Saturday.
