Outdoor dining available, bbq pork was very good, son lives in area and this is his favorite place. Staff attentive and would definitely make a repeat visit next time we are in town.

Visiting Cody's this time was better than my experience the last time. We had a group of about 15 people and I felt bad for the ONE poor server who had to service us (and other tables). I think the management of this establishment needs...More

An average restaurant, with average food. The service was really slow, but the restaurant supposedly was short on staff the night we were there. Nothing really great but nothing really bad either.

Classic roadhouse with interesting and casual decore. Food was served promptly and attentively. Excellent all-around, my favorite in Gainsville.

Stopped in last Fri evening while in Gainesville. We were a little concerned when it wasn't completely full at 7:30pm. Seated right away and the server took our drink orders. Food bits stuck in the menus and on the blinds. Burger was ok, ribs ok....More

Service was a little slow to start, but the place was busy. Waitress was really helpful and friendly so we didn't mind. Food was well cooked and as requested.

The wait at the "chain" steakhouses were way too long - so we tried this and were delighted. Food and service were just great.

Worst management in Gainesville. If you would like to eat somewhere that you are treated with respect, please go somewhere else. They were so disorganized and unprofessional. Would never want to take my family here.More
