If you order chicken wings make shore you order them well done. 3out of4 times I had to send them back to grill them more. Under cooked,pink on inside and not grilled long enough when ordering the grilled wings.

This is the second time I order these ribs..First was a combo with chicken. The second I passed on the chicken (if you like rosemary you may like it). IMO these are some of the best ribs in the area. Paired with 2 for 1 cocktails and beers, you can't beat it and you can sit viewing Lake Sumter if... More

The steaks are the main feature but, the rest of the menu has great entrees as well. I had a chicken fried pork chop that was big enough to share! It was tender enough to cut with a fork.

A Funcky,fun place...peanuts on the tables and shells on the floor. We had a late lunch. The steaks are hand cut and extremely reasonable. Salads are plentiful and varied. Servers are pleasant. If you are in the area, it is a casual place with good food.

After a long travel day from Baltimore airport then a 90 minute shuttle ride from Orlando airport, we were starving and in need of an alcoholic beverage. Cody's half pound burgers & 2 for 1 vodka & tonics fit the bill. If you are looking for quiet dining, this is NOT your place. On the other hand, if you got... More

Went there from airport while visiting family in The Villages. Service was slow. Ordered loaded baked potato soup was visually unacceptable and tasted horrible! Worst I've EVER had! Baked onion soup was really salty not hot. Chicken club sandwich was okay, fries cold. WON'T GO BACK! BTW, we went to the one in Lake Sumpter.

I always like their house salad but had never had it with Chicken. I was disappointed because they didn't mix the salad as they would usually do. It was delicious but would have preferred to have the salad mixed and TOPPED with the Chicken.

Thank Anna H
