Got seated right away and our server was there in minutes. Wife and I both ordered the Prime Rib and were not disappointed. Tender and juicy and flavorful. The salad was very good also. Can't fault the place in any way and our server was awesome. Well worth the 45 minute drive from Mount Dora. Will be back.

Sunday night dinner was a waste if time and money. We will not go back. Looks fun from the outside with all that is going on. Waited at check in while female made corrections to seating chart. When we tapped on desk she shouted, I see you. Ok then acknowledge us and seat us. We then were seated and no... More

We were not promptly acknowledged, and after finally being seated, nobody came to our table. We had to flag down another server, to get our order taken. Iced tea was weak, food was just average, and hospitality was non-existent. Our server never came back to our table to check on things. Wow. What a waste. Really disappointed. Will not return.

Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We were there at happy hour where u get 2 beers for one only problem was u had to drink fast because they actually bring both glasses of beer to you, if u r slow drinker beer would warm. I hate warm beer. Other than that everything was great, the food, service, awesome wait staff,... More

Clueless inattentive bartenders, weak selection of draft beers, and greasy bar food. Free peanuts is probably the best thing about this place. It was 2 for 1 so rather than get both beers at once, I asked if I could back one up. Bartender looks at me and asks " what does that mean? " wow. Several people at the... More

Have a great meal inisde Cody's. They are known for their wonderful steaks. We like the outside bar which has entertainment; just enlarged to bring in a full band and room to dance. Bar has a separate menu which is extremely affordable and great food.

This place was supposed to be opened for customers until 10:30 pm on Monday night. (According to their own website, google, YELP, or TripAdvisor) We came in at 9:40 pm after a show hoping for dinner. When we got there we had to go around back to the bar. They were cleaning up and I asked if we could order... More

This place is OK, but jus doesn't compare to Texas Roadhouse for us. Food isn't bad, we jus don't care for how they do their salad.

The food is pretty good, and the service is pretty good, but what really stands out here is the view of the lake. A majority of the tables and booths inside the restaurant have little or no view, so go outside for the spectacular view of Lake Sumter and the Arnold Palmer golf course. Sit back with a reasonably priced... More
