We had our rehearsal dinner at Bodee's and I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant and it's staff! The owner was very helpful with our menu and the restaurant looked wonderful! I would strongly suggest eating here or holding an event here!

OMG the filet mignon was delicious and the most tender I've ever eaten. My husband's Wild Alaskan halibut was delightful. A soothing stream under the oaks combine for a wonderful place to celebrate a 60th birthday. Chef Cixto is a new addition and a master...More

We had heard various stories about this storied family run institution. Although they had been in business since 1947, one thing we heard was that the food can be marginal. On the other hand we were told, you can't beat the location with its outdoor...More

They were friendly, but I ordered prime rib, and the waitress gave me rib eye. Don't get me wrong, I do like rib eye, but I ordered prime rib. When I asked her if this was prime rib, she replied, "you ordered rib eye". I...More
