“OK But Nothing Special”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

My sister and I ate at Cody's for lunch today based on tripadvisor ratings. Maybe we hit them on an off day. We started with crab cakes and crispy calamari. Both were OK but the crab cakes had absolutely NO lump crab meat in them - $12.95 for two cakes, each about the size of a silver dollar, resting on a salad of field greens. They had lobster rolls on special but the lobster itself actually tasted fishy and not sweet at all. We asked for lemon wedges to help with the fishy taste. I would not go back based on this experience. Maybe Cody's strong suit is breakfast. Lunch was not worth the price or the effort.

Their Awesome French Toast lived up to its name. The mascarpone on the waffles made my day.
Great food & site at a reasonable price.

“Awesome French Toast”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Yep that is what it is called and the description is spot on. Located part way down the street to the cove. Outdoor seating, we were there for breakfast and enjoyed the sea mist floating by.
