“All-around best casual restaurant in Crystal River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The bottomless salad is always a big draw with any entrée. Love the staff, love the service, love the specials, love the prime rib and ribs. Scallops appetizer is worth going for. Happy hour is generous. Local favorite and always busy. Shelled peanuts on every table--wipe the shells onto the floor.

“Enjoyed the steak, the service and the atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We've been to Cody's twice on our last trip to Crystal River and believe it to be one of the two very best restaurants there (the other one being Crackers).

We had good ribs, great burgers and a-m-a-z-i-n-g steaks, combined with a eat-as-much-as-you-like-salad and fast, friendly and entertaining service (did we mention how fast it was? :-)), all of this in a very authentic roadhouse atmosphere (at least for us Europeans it worked).

Go there and grab their daily special at a great price while you are still amazed by your manatee encounter!

“Vibrant place with the true roadhouse feel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Close to Plantation Inn. Great for families. We split the ribs which were OK but we were very hungry. Fun for casual easy comfort food place.

“Used to be great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

This used to be our go to restaurant- especially when we had visitors. This last visit, will be my last. We called ahead for seating because we had 8 people including kids. we arrived early but still had to wait 60 minutes for a table. Very crowded, very noisy. Like eating in a puppy mill. greeter was obviously overwhelmed and not suited for a position dealing with the public. We were seated in the isle, near where they rip the paper off to cover the table. So either you had people smashing into the back of your chair, or paper was flying over your head. Spoke to the manager, who really could care less. the rolls were good.
We have now started taking people to Seafood Sellers in the mall. It's tiny, but delicious. and they care.
