I wrote a positive review on Cody's last month but a return visit earned a different reaction. The poor service began when we arrived around 1 PM on a weekday. No host was at the stand and we stood around for a few minutes before she finally appeared. The crowd was very light so we were seated in the bar... More

Arrived for lunch at 1:05 pm, waitress took drink and food order at 1:20 pm. At 1:40pm, I let her know I had to leave at 1:50 to return to work. She promptly returned with my house salad. My husband's chicken Caesar wrap & my baked potato soup arrived at 1:45pm. We ate quickly to return to work. Restaurant was... More

The Cody's in Ocala, The Villages and Wesley Chapel, FL all have really great menu items. The Tri-tip steak was cooked to perfection just as I had ordered (rare) both at Ocala and The Villages. I would suspect the catfish would also be as excellent as I had in The Villages. Cody's Original Roadhouse has several locations that I can... More

Took family for Father's day. I ordered the 10oz sirloin medium well and arrived perfect. The service was good and food came out quick for a busy time of day.

Had dinner with friends. Nice 2 for 1 happy hour for drinks. We started with the onion tower and it was nice and crispy and lots of flavor. We all had burgers and they were all very tasty. Nice atmosphere and you can throw the peanut shells on the floor! I guess the only downfall would be if you have... More

On a recent trip to Florida, we came upon Cody's Original Roadhouse while searching for a place for lunch. This was a pleasant surprise. WE like local places and this was one of the better finds. Food was good. Service was friendly. They serve lots of beef, all hand cut and cooked to order. They also offer appetizers, Southern BBQ,... More

Cody's is open on holidays when many restaurants are closed because they are traditional times for families to do backyard barbecues. Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day the restaurant almost always offers the same deal (or has in recent years) which is half a chicken, half a rack of ribs, corn on the cob, choice of potato and salad and...

After wrapping up a business appointment my girlfriend and I stopped by Cody's for a mid-afternoon meal. Only a few other tables were occupied due to the time of day so there was no wait. My lady enjoyed a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich which she loved. The steak slices were juicy and the soft chewy bun was perfect. I had blackened... More

Ate here after zip lining at the Canyons. Ordered the beef briquet. It was dry and overcooked. Food was just OK. Service was very good. Wouldn't go back.

I think that Cody's is my favorite place to eat. Not a fine dining restaurant, but good food at a fair price. We were shopping in Ocala and had some time so we stopped in tonight to enjoy their Fajitas special. Buy one and get another free on Wednesday's. Our server, Brook, was great. Took our drink order, Happy Hour... More
