We waited 45 minutes at our table, no drinks, a serious attitude from all. Staff was rude.. door girls rude, bartenders rude...my god they all hate their job so much to treat customers like that...very sad...we left and they didn't even say sorry... stay away from this night mare!

Try going to Cody's early when they might not be so busy. Also go when a lot of others will be at the beach or at one of our other events. The food is good and the prices are about the same as other steak and rib restaurants.. Really reasonable when it's happy hour, even the drinks that require more... More

Went with friends, one of whom was celebrating her birthday. We were lucky to get Tonya as our server. She was very friendly, seemed to enjoy her job, and was quick to answer our questions. Our group ordered steaks (mine was done to perfection!), chicken tenders, baby back ribs, and a cheeseburger. Of course we got the unlimited salad, made... More

We had reservations and waited an hour for a table and then twenty minutes for service.They Told us twenty minutes after that that they were out of ribs and had been since before we arrived.The bill was all wrong and there was no attempt to appease us. Just a ghastly experience.

I enjoyed great BBQ at Cody's. The environment is fun with a combination of dinner and road-stop attraction decorations. The staff was friendly and courteous, and the service was quick.

Arrived around 3:30pm and was seated right away. Shawn was our waiter and arrived with drinks very fast. He took our order and came back with rolls and butter. Our food arrived in minimum time, I order a filet which was a little tough. The salad and baked potato was just fine, my wife's filet was great, I have never... More

Prices are good, two for one drink special, very good. They start you out with huge salad which was tasty. I ordered the prime rib, it was inedible, so dry and tough, if we go back, I'll stick to a more basic meal. Very loud place.

Took friends out to dinner, they wanted steak so we chose Cody's. It was just ok, they were out of baked potatoes, but the prime rib was pretty good. The place wasn't real busy but it took forever to get our meal. The sweet potatoe fries tasted like they were left over from the day before, just not what we... More

The restaurant is anything but formal, but the food is excellent. We had two of the Valentine's Day specials and were totally pleased. I had the surf and turf. The steak was done to perfection and you could cut it with a fork. The lobster tail was a very nice size and presented nicely. It was very tasty. My companion... More
