Had dinner here with 6 friends. The restaurant is very noisy and the service was very slow. Our waitress forgot things and never came back to refill drinks. She was very slow even bringing the bill at the end of the meal. I would not go back again even though my steak was really good!

Everyone enjoyed their burgers and fajitas but the wait was way too long to get seated and to get our food. They we're understaffed since there were some empty tables and the kitchen was running slow. Other places I have eaten at would have offered something - small appetizer, a little money off...not here. This was Thursday before Easter so... More

As a villager, we enjoy this place, the peanut shells on the floor and all. Sit outside on the patio, have a few drinks and lunch or dinner, at night listen to the band.

The entire inside motif is designed after a 50’s - 60’s gas station. The menu is extensive featuring entrees from beef, chicken, ribs, fish and much... More

How can you beat 2 for 1 drinks all day and a huge menu ranging from bar appetizers and sandwiches to large meals including all you can eat salad bowls? Cody's is my favorite place to take first time Village visitors too with the large outdoor seating area overlooking the lake.

We visited Cody's to enjoy dinner with friends. Service was quick and prompt and we did not feel rushed at all, giving us plenty of time to catch up on things with old friends. They offer 2 for 1 drink specials and a huge menu that has you wondering what to get, the offerings all look fabulous. My husband decided... More

We arrived in The Villages after a long day traveling and Cody's was recommended as the best casual eating place for a Thursday night. What a good suggestion! It was crowded, with a festive atmosphere but we were seated right immediately away from the live band where we could relax , enjoy the music and munch on peanuts until the... More

Cody's at Lake Sumter is a fun place with lots of character. It is loud though, but that never bothers me.

Two couples visited on a Sunday evening at around 7:00PM. We were seated right away and decided to sit outside. Breezy, but not uncomfortable. Great view of Lake Sumter. Drinks and appetizer order taken quickly and both served promptly. Dinner was a combo of ribs and pork chop; haddock dinner; flank steak; porterhouse steak. All were pleased with their choices....
