“Great salad-good food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Went with a group of eight this evening.....that was the only wrinkle....couldn't sit together. They have call ahead seating & we should have done that since they only have a couple of tables big enough for a group that size. Pays to go early, we went at 4 pm & the place was very busy, but the service was excellent & the the food very good. They have an endless salad bowl that is super.....definitely not low cal....also warm from the oven rolls (where we were sitting I could watch them being baked) with a cinnamon butter that is wonderful. I had the steak chunks & while a little chewy they really were flavorful. Other entrees were a sirloin steak, beer battered fish & a boneless blackened pork chop. All were deemed very good. The other table had dessert as well...the mile high carrot cake. It was four layers & one piece was enough for all four of them....it was declared to be marvelous by the men as well as the women. A very good evening.

“There is usually a wait”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

But that speaks for itself. The food is good the atmosphere wonderful. The funny thing is he first time i ate there i wasn't impressed but have been back numerous times lately and the drink specials are great. The half price appetizers you get at the bar are awesome the 21 oz prime rib bone in is to die for

“kind of loud”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

BUT who cares! they have great happy hour specials. The food, prices and service make it well worth the short wait you may have to get a seat.

Can't beat this place ! Always had brilliant service and never had to complain about the food. We are snowbirds who eat here 1 to 3 times a week. Ribs are the best in town and the burger is like eating a steak ! If you want to have fun, good food and friendly service head out to this Cody's, be early though, very busy place - for good reason !! Top marks again.

“Great Fajita deal on wed”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We get the Fajitas on Wednesdays BOGO and are always good, although the steaks have been very bland twice, Batenders seem overwelmed and not too friendly, never see a manager
