“An Old School Classic!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Bode's is a true Plymouth classic. The best roast beef and corned beef around. They also have excellent breakfasts. Stepping through the front door is liking stepping back into the 50s. Old school food and old school service. If you need a great sandwich or comfort food, Bode's is the place for you.

“Where is Guy Fieri?”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This place has been around for more than 50 years and is a neighborhood institution. I have never had a bad meal, here. The omelets are great. They are known for their corned beef sandwiches, and they also make wickedly good fish and chips. The potatoes that come with the omelets are a much better companion than the usual hash browns. It all just works.

The place has been around since the late 1800's, and it looks like it. The booths look like something that was taken out of a diner in the 1930s. They probably were. But it gives the place a kind of charm that you do not get from a sterile franchise restaurant.

The food makes it. The prices are really reasonable. Service is friendly. It makes for a great meal and a pleasant outing.

“Corned Beef many different ways”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

Try them all -- the corned beef salad is very good, Al's caboose, BoxCar or the Hash -- they are all good. We like the Friday night Fish Fry. The place is definetly unique, sitting right next to the train tracks. Quite the scene when a train rambles by.
For the price, all the food is pretty good, the specials are the best. Try the before 5pm specials. Pretty cheap to eat here. Wait staff is ok -- they can get pretty busy, but try their best.
