Read good reviews for Cody's here on TripAdvisor so decided it would be a timely spot to stop at after crossing the border. We ordered one full breakfast with a side of bacon and it was plenty for the two of us. What we had was very good, service quite satisfactory , the restaurant was clean and the price reasonable....

Stopped in on our way through with our granddaughter. I had a cheeseburger and my husband had the double cheeseburger. When the waitress brought it out...OMG. He had to take one off and eat with a fork, it was so thick. They had to be at least half pounders. Cooked perfectly and juicy. We didn't know that they close at... More

we have had a few great dinners , breakfasts too, at Codys. We both had the Surf and Turf. Between the tossed salad, cup of soup, vegtable, roll shrimp and perfectly done steak, there was no way one could possibly leave hungry! Great staff too, friendly from the cooks to the waitresses to clean up!

We have eaten at Cody's a few times for breakfast and a few times at lunch time. Centrally located in town. The staff are friendly. The food is more like home cooked and haven't had a bad meal.

Very inexpensive but delicious/breakfast/ hometown feel/ friendly. Hometown cooking with the feeling of regular clients. Our first time there and we are from the area. Would highly recommend.

Excellent breakfast value and very friendly servers. Some of the bread is home-made, ask for which ones are!. The home fries are home-made and great, and the servers recommend them as the hash browns are frozen.

We go here a lot for breakfast and sometimes lunch. They do a good job. They serve typical diner food. The pancakes are the size of a whole plate. It is not elegant by any means and it has kind of a small awkward dining room, but they have good food at a good price.

small inside and limited seating but wonderful folks run it. Food is good and prices are great. Portions are large. Only open for breakfast and lunch. Very hot inside during the summer.

The concept that all dining need be fancy is overrated. This was the kind of local meal which represents the true American diner. Since I was with a local resident, the service was friendly and prompt, with a little local chiding. The meal was quickly provided, and met the immediate needs. The hamburger was fresh, nicely prepared, and what you... More

A good, but not great, local eatery specializing in breakfast all day. They do a good job on eggs and various Benedicts. They do a mediocre job on fish dishes at lunch. And some of their offerings (like coleslaw) are best forgotten. Large servings, especially fries. Breakfast and lunch weekdays, dinner Friday and Saturday. Downtown opposite the park.
