Father's Day 12 oz Rib eye steak was good, it only came with one side though. Everything else was just ok, bar drinks were weak. They have a fly problem, maybe because of the open patio area. Will not return as we could not eat...More

Come between 3-6 and you can get some nice sirloin or prime rib specials And happy hour two for one on drinks. Good steaks and hugh salad and nice dinner rolls. Peanuts free! Good for a crowd or a couple.

Great place to party on the outdoor patio. Good food and drinks at a fair price. Many nights there is live music.

Family visited and said they loved wings so off to Cody's we went. All 4 of us ordered wings of various type and all raved about their choice. I had them grilled and they were excellent.

Try the lunch hamburger at the bar - not available at tables. Good value for a light lunch. Not fast but reasonable most times.

Cody's does NOT take reservations for a usual sized party. At times we have used "call ahead seating" but we have still had to wait the usual amount of time after we arrived. Hasn't been a successful attempt at reducing... More
