I have been to Cody's a few times the food has always been satisfactory. They have great drinks. I would recommend this restaurant to a friend. Price is low to mid range. Enjoy!

When you are traveling and don't want to spend too much time eating but still want tasty food, Codys is a refreshing stop. We have one in the Villages and they are also good so in Chain terms Codys is an excellent stop.

Quirky décor, friendly, accommodating staff. The menu has a huge variety of dishes to appeal to just about anyone. Reasonable prices. We were a party of three and this is definitely a good restaurant for a group of people.

They were absolutely PACKED, but service for our group of 10 was MOSTLY good (see below). The dinner rolls are MAGNIFICENT. Our Parmesan Breaded Mushrooms were delicious, but the horseradish/ranch dipping sauce is WAY over the top and too strong. My French Onion Soup is described on the menu as "an old French recipe - and good" - but I... More

We had a really good meal at Cody's Original Roadhouse in Ocala. They were very busy that night because Trump had been in town, but the servers covered each other and were very friendly. The good was great - salad through the steak. Well worth the money.

We decided to have a quick lunch on weekday. We chose to share a grouper sandwich and the loaded cheese fries. Double yuk! The fish contained two tiny pieces of fish (yes smaller than the tomato) and the taste was over the top fishy. It was not like any grouper I'd ever seen or tasted. The fries were generous, greasy...

Went to Cody's twice. Its a very casual dining experience. Seemed clean enough. The decor was the typical bar/grill look. The staff was very friendly both times. My friend and I both had a 24oz Porterhouse the first visit. It was a little overcooked but we ate it regardless. It was still very good. We also ordered a buffalo chicken... More

I had the buffalo chicken quesadillas and they might be the best quesadillas I ever ate. Also the warm buns with the cinnamon butter is like having dessert with your meal. So good! The prices for all the steaks are really good. So much food for so little the price. We will be back to Codys for sure.

Thank Perry I
