“Horrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

They have a fun atmosphere, but the service we received was HORRIBLE. Someone in our party was gluten free- which we were told when we got there they could accommodate, but the waitress was extremely rude about it. She wouldn't answer questions about what was in the food, wouldn't make any changes to the food, and wouldn't listen to what couldn't be on something- even not putting croutons on the salad was inconceivable to her. It was a horrible experience.

“Salmon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Cody's does an excellent salmon. Their salad is great. Sunday specials good buy! We revisit as much as we can. Two for one drinks not good for drivers!

“good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Four of us went to Cody's and then were joined by two more. We sat outside by the water. The venue was pleasant. While the service was slower than to be desired---and it was not that busy, the server was pleasant and doing the best she could due to the demands on her. The food and drinks (two for one) were good. After our meal one of our party had left a thermos coffee mug on the table and when we went back the staff really looked hard to find it (only to find out that some folks from another table had grabbed it--and returned it grudgingly when asked if they picked it up). Cody's is a fun place with pretty reliable service (could have more staff).

“The food is okay, the service could be better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Met a good friend for lunch on a week day. The food was okay, but the service needs to improve. Once we received our food we didn't see the waitress again until we received our check for payment ..... no drink refills.

“Regular Hangout for Some Villagers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Throwing peanut shells on the floor reminds one of the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel in Singapore or the Palm steak joints in the Big Apple or DC but outside of that it's far different from these other joints. If you like average food, average drinks and crowded and noisy place, this is it. It's a hang out for bikers and Villagers. We went out with about fifteen couples and had a great time but you won't go there for food per se.
