Family dinner

We went to Kody's after driving by and thinking it looked cool. They have mini golf but it's nothing worth getting excited for. The food was alright. My husband really liked the fried fish. It was loud and perfect atmosphere for my loud toddler.

I usually only rate to promote a place I enjoy and receive great service from. But... If the food had been all that, I would have been all about the shabby surroundings and overall dilapidated appearance inside. We may have just chosen the wrong dishes to order: some sort of fish tacos [OK] and peel and eat shrimp [NOT FRESH,... More

The restaurant requires that you pay up front for the meal. That is usually a bad omen for slop to come, and it was. The fried seafood came out with small, overpriced portions, and severly over cooked. The shrimp was not deveined, and tasted like dirt. We asked for our money back, and left. The positive note is, this is... More

We have had everything from the burgers to the steaks. This is a great place for adults and kids to go after a long day on the beach. Food is wonderful and the staff are friendly.

I am a seafood lover but I am also very picky when it comes to how the seafood is prepared. I want to taste the seafood not a bunch of breading. Kody's understands this concept! I had the fried oysters which were lightly dusted with cracker meal and deep fried. They were great! Others in my party had fish and... More

My husband and I went here this weekend. It was crowded so we thought we were at a good food place. However,the menu is almost entirely fried food and both of our meals were very bland. I got chicken tenders and asked what it came with for dipping, the woman never answered me, so I asked for Ranch. I was... More

Stopped here for dinner on a whim. Comfort food and alcohol, not a bad combo. The shrimp was overcooked, dry, and tough but my wife liked it. Fries were limp and the place was more like a bar than a restaurant. That said, I was also not very hungry and could afford to be picky. Like I said, my wife... More

When all else fails, this is a reasonably priced place to eat. You order your food as you walk in then seat yourself and wait for the food to come out. Nothing fancy here. The food has always been good. There is a good selection on the board. You can even play putt putt golf with the kids when done.

This is a popular hangout for both locals and tourists. Nothing at all fancy, as you order at the counter when you walk in, but the restaurant has been here for a very long time. Fried seafood offerings and burgers dominate the menu. Full bar and lots of TVs to watch sporting events. Convenient off street parking and friendly staff.
