Visiting Cody's this time was better than my experience the last time. We had a group of about 15 people and I felt bad for the ONE poor server who had to service us (and other tables). I think the management of this establishment needs to look into how the establishment is ran. The amount of time it took for the food to come was ridiculously long. To substitute for that, the bread was endless; but eating SO much bread meant no room for the actual food. While this was a better experience than my last visit about a year ago, if I had to pick this establishment out of list of venues, this wouldnt be my first, second of third choice.

An average restaurant, with average food. The service was really slow, but the restaurant supposedly was short on staff the night we were there. Nothing really great but nothing really bad either.

Classic roadhouse with interesting and casual decore. Food was served promptly and attentively. Excellent all-around, my favorite in Gainsville.

Stopped in last Fri evening while in Gainesville. We were a little concerned when it wasn't completely full at 7:30pm. Seated right away and the server took our drink orders. Food bits stuck in the menus and on the blinds. Burger was ok, ribs ok. Wit the salad, you better love the dressing because it's soaked in it. They prepare it at the table and they used so much it looked like a soupy mess. Wrong food came to our table and we got the wrong check 3 different times.

Service was a little slow to start, but the place was busy. Waitress was really helpful and friendly so we didn't mind. Food was well cooked and as requested.
