My daughter told me that she and her husband had stopped at a new place in town and liked it very much She suggested that I stop bye and check it out. Better than that, Our family met for a birthday celebration on a Saturday afternoon and checked everything out. There were 11 of us and we like to eat and sample the bar drinks also. ( Ten of us over 21 )
To start out if you are in the San Marcos area and down by the Outlet stores this place is 1 minute away and you avoid the traffic and crowds of the outlets and get great food with a terrific bar. Cody’s Bistro & Lounge is the name. Just opened in July 2013 and already has a local following that many places would be jealous of.
Food is served inside or outside. The Patio out back overlooks the Hill Country and is very quiet.
The food is all fresh, they make their own puree’s ,dressings, sauces, and have everyday lunch specials of homemade ingredients in their sandwiches and salads.
Homemade deserts like Crème du lay and different kinds of Cheese cakes and other great tastys.
They have a full bar that starts with “Scratch” mixers and comfortable bar stools. Later in the evening they also have live music that can be enjoyed from their lounge chairs.
Best of all their servers give top notch personal service. They recommend the daily specials and explain how each of them are made with the freshest ingredients. …and Of course, if you have small kids they also have a great kids menu and will prepare special orders for the kids if needed.
Back to our experience. With eleven of us ( one kid ) we were able to try just about everything on the menu and also enjoy a number of their drinks. Kelly was our server and he did a great job keeping the water glasses full and making sure that all of our questions were answered.
We did not try the dinner menu but my daughter told me that she and her husband had tried a number of the dinners and all of them had been very good.
Great Food, Terrific Service and Fabulous Location make Cody’s Bistro an inviting stop if you are in the San Marcos area. We’ll be back !
