“Total disappointment”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

Big sign out front with specials. Get inside wife ordered soup. After twenty minutes we were told they gave it to someone else! When I ordered I was told there was no more specials. She was irritated because I didn't have a backup plan. When the soup did come it came with a filty spoon. I was glad to get out of there. The floor was sticky and generally dirty. This is my first review. I was that dissatified. And all this for $54.00!

“Delicious Salad”
Reviewed May 30, 2011

Cody's Roadhouse is a very lively steak house in Ocala, Florida. Children can color directly on the paper tablecloths....a plus for famililes taking children there to eat! We absolutely loved their bottomless salad bowl! Our daughter accidentally knocked her basket of food on the floor so they quickly mader her a new cheeseburger (which looked WAY BETTER than the first one they brought out to her) and they did not charge us for the second cheeseburger! We had to wait a long time for silverware and had to ask 3 servers for it, but eventually we did get some. Our waitress seemed to be overwhelmed at times and they were slower with their service than they should have been for as much staff as they had on hand! Their ribs and steak were juicy and delicious. We really liked our food and we would go back. The restaurant is full of decorations/clutter so do not take strollers in...there is simply no room! The bathrooms are very clean and have cute decor.

“Great Stop Off I75”
Reviewed April 17, 2011

We stopped here for lunch on our way from Georgia back home to Miami and it was very good. The service was excellent. We sat outside since we were traveling with our show dog and didn't want to leave him in the truck. Despite being the only table outside, our waitress was very attentive. The food was great - very fresh. Excellent bread rolls. Next time we head back to Georgia for dog shows, we will make a stop there.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed March 23, 2011

Had a Sunday dinner special. Meat tough, presented unattractively, service sporadic. The portions were small, even for myself who is an average eater.
