“Best Shrimp on the Island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

This is such a neat place and has the best food! The fried shrimp is the best on the island but there is even more to choose from if you're in the mood for something different! Garlic fish, tuna - you name it!

“Great food, excellent prices, friendly rustic beach atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Every year we spend 1 winter month and 2 summer weeks in Port A. This past year we went to Kody's at least 7 times. It was spot on every time. Has a beach bar atmosphere with an added putt putt bonus for the kids. Food is ordered at the bar counter with a friendly and informative staff. The grilled shrimp is very tasty. The all u can eat fried shrimp special is excellent and I am not a fried food fan. The garlic fish delicious. The prime rib special is outstanding - but get there early or you may loose out, it is a while supplies last deal. The fish sandwich could have used more fish, but still delightful. Great burgers ! Every special we tried was well worth getting. Get their menu, check the specials and go as often as you can, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED ! The chef is a professional and his food reflects that. He even makes special dinners for parties or groups and personally delivers them. It is open late, has daily specials and a chalkboard that adds different menu items everyday.

The fried shrimp, crab stuffed jalepenos and peel your own shrimp were all great! The bartenders are awesome as well and they have a pretty good happy hour.We will be back for sure!

“Fun casual place to eat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

Food was good, place was very casual and layed back. One of the few places opened late during off season visit. Prices were reasonable.

“A converted dive that serves very good food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012 via mobile

Food was prepared very well. Fresh. The atmosphere might not be for everyone. I enjoyed it. Had a 'locals' feel to it.
