Place is very noisy. More for younger crowd. Table area around bar however you can not get seated there because the bar is sooo overcrowded. The food is decent but a bit pricey compared to other restaurants equal to this and the atmosphere is not that great. I would only go back if friends insisted , not on my own...

We decided to try this place out for steak instead of one of the two chains places in the area. Food was not particularly good but the service shone for lack of coordination. The waitstaff lacked organization, the impression we got was that nobody really knew how to execute things in order. The funny apex was when they ran out... More

This eclectic, humorously decorated roadhouse has a variety of menu options, and most of them include a HUGE bowl of fresh salad that you will NOT be able to finish! The Cody's we were at has a Route 66 themed dining room, and fresh peanuts on the table for you to make a mess on the floor! All the entrees... More

The atmosphere is great with lots of old time signs and things. We were there for a friends birthday party and there were 20 people. Two groups of tables were set up for us and our servers, Lacy and Jerry, went above and beyond. We were even allowed to bring a birthday cake. The food was very good, steaks and... More

We just ate at Cody's. The food looked really good. I liked the decor of the restaurant. We ordered our food and my son had to use the restroom, on the way there he threw up. Nobody came to help us. About three minutes went by before someone came and in the end, I ended up asking for gloves and... More

We were very disappointed with our visit to this restaurant. The salad and bread was very good. However, we ordered the stuff flounder with a baked potato. After two bites we were both sick to our stomach and pushed our plates away. The flounder was cold and uncooked. The baked potato was hard and cold. The service was not up... More

We got there and immediately we're taken care of. The food was tasty and it came right away. The drinks were very good. Waiter, TK, had the best personality and attitude.
