We came for lunch Monday afternoon with a group of ten and everything was good. Our server provided us with quick service and was very knowledgable, we will return.

Ordered a steak and it was poorly cooked and arrived to my table cold. Sent it back and got another. It was lousy too. This use to be a favorite spot for me but the service and food have really slipped to a point we will not return

Cody's is a fun place for a casual meal - it's no 4-star "fine-dining" restaurant but it isn't designed to be.

Salad was extremely large an had everything in it. Service was only fair at best. Place was on the dingy side. This was a peanut shell on the floor kind of place, so if that is what you like, then that is what you get. Food was ok. Would definitely try somewhere else next time we are in the area,... More
