Cody's is located in one of the original seaside cottages of La Jolla. It's a charming venue with both indoor and outdoor seating. The food is great & the service excellent Its always busy, but the wait is never too long and always worth it!

Easily the best fish and chips, EVER. Very light coating. Tasty side. We tried numerous dishes and loved them all. Make sure Cody's is on your list.

Oh my gosh, this place is the best! Beach casual and an easy walk from anywhere near La Jolla Cove. Great outside seating overlooking Scripps Park and the ocean. The lobster roll sandwich was the best I've ever eaten and there was no skimping on the lobster! Husband loved the fish & chips. They are "secretly" now open for dinner... More

I grew up in PB and La Jolla but have been gone for 20 years. I was back for visit with my niece and wanted to take her to lunch and we chose codys. Perfect spot to chat and show the low key vibe of San Diego! Cute drinks in mason jars and fish and chips were amaze!

A fun restaurant centrally located in La Jolla. There is a delightful view of the coastline from the outdoor seating, and the tea and lemonade are served in mason jars. The fish and chips were amazing.

We enjoyed the breeze and view several times during our trip. The breakfast was delicious; fills up early and seems to be the place to be.

Thank Don R
