We came to Cody's for supper our first night in the Villages. It won't be our last! My husband had the fried jumbo shrimp and I had their black & blue burger. Our waiter brought out a salad which he mixed at the table and even provided a plate for me even though my meal didn't qualify for a salad.... More

The food was excellent and plentiful. We got the house salad which was huge and delicious. We shared a full rack of ribs again plenty for 2. Meat was falling off the bone. Delicious sauce. Music was good. Busy. Def recommend and will return. Bring your appetite.

Food was very good. A bit crowded but added to the experience. Beautiful view on the water. Great place to eat along with the locals.

Five minutes later the salmon is cooling and still no side. If you eat at Codys refuse all meals until the order is complete.....send them back to the kitchen . By the... More

My meal did not come when the rest of the party got there's. I got my side of mushrooms and onions, but that was it. By the time the waitress noticed, it was too late. The couple that was seated next to us were treated extremely rudely in my opinion. After they were seated, a waiter came up and took... More

Went solo to have a cocktail and order dinner to go. Excellent service from Rebecca at the bar. Very welcoming and stayed attentive. Had an appetizer at the bar (buffalo shrimp YUM) Drinks were excellent! Great value! The Live entertainment was awesome for a Tuesday night. Highly recommend.

Came here over Thanksgiving while visiting family. Atmosphere was really fun and food was good. Started out with fried pickles, which were some of the best I've ever had.
