This is one of our favorite stops when we're looking for comfort food like steak, burgers, or ribs. Peanuts in the shell in buckets at your table for starters. Peanut shells on the floor adds to the ambiance. It's a fun place for families and the food is good. Service is good, too.

Cold beer and good drinks along with free peanuts in the Shell make this a good place for a quick stop. We were surprised that the food was good also. A very friendly staff added to our evening.

I meet a large group of ladies here every Wednesday for late lunch/early dinner. The food is very good, especially the Fajitas (buy one/get one free). The waitress, Ashley, is beyond good. She is excellent! For those of us who usually order the same thing evey week, she remembers. The food comes out in a very timely manner, with no... More

I wanted a place, for Mother's Day, where I could relax but have fun, get a good meal but also feel special, I also wanted to sit outside. My husband took me to Cody's and it was perfect. I had the steak and lobster and it was just the right amount. Service was also good. Prices are not inexpensive, but... More

Cody's Roadhouse is a very nice place and sits at Brownville in the Villages. It is a steak house serving multiple items pleasing all. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is very unique. Throw the peanut shells on the floor, have a drink, and enjoy the food.

We enjoyed the excellent service but the food was less than ordinary. This is a shame because the ambience is set up for fun times but you've got to deliver on the culinary side!
