I was really hoping for more in this restaurant but the wait staff is very slow and does not pay attention to detail. I had to ask twice for my dinner roll, which was supposed to come with my wild rice meatball dinner. The waitress...More

We have been here a few times. Usually OK. Not this time. The club sandwich had no mayo or tomatoe. I asked "should that be part of the sandwich?" She said yes, did not apologize, reluctantly brought 2 slices of tomatoe to add. I received...More

You really can't go wrong here. I've eaten here numerous times and every time the food is great. From freshly made salad dressings to desserts and wonderfully cooked seafood and tasty appetizers, I highly recommend a visit to Mary Cody's!

People in the area know of the culinary talents of Mary Cody, but out-of-towners may not be aware of this little gem. Food is great and the prices are very reasonable. We have really enjoyed their special occasion brunches. Small and intimate, but yummy.

When your server says, "it's just one of those days" as a last ditch attempt at a tip, you know the service was awful. This is nothing new, but when combined with terrible food, inaccurate orders, and a very long wait, it's just not worth...More

This restaurant is in the space of an embroidery shop where I once worked, so I had to check it out. Wow, can you say "gutted the building?" However nice it is, it feels like so many other dark wood, heavy bar stool places I've...More
