We went for lunch to Cody's on a Sunday, the place was packed. Food was great and the setting nicely casual. There is an outdoor sitting area that we could take our little yorkie with us.

By far the most popular place with locals - deservedly so. Prices (for La Jolla) are reasonable, food is plentiful, good and varied.
