This was a good place for social interaction and sharing a tasty meal. The Porterhouse stake was amazing.

We waited for close to an hour for a badly burned steak and old lukewarm yellowed baked potatoes. We asked for the manager and left our food with her. Not a good first experience.

On 4/17/2017 while having a drink with my friend, we witnessed a rat the size of a squirrel scale the piping of the NW wall near the bar. We brought the rat to the bar tender's attention but he was indifferent. Three onlookers, obviously long-time patrons joked about the rat's name being "Ben". I didn't find any humor in this....

Arrived on a Thursday night for dinner. Wanted to sit outside. I guess that was an issue even though 2 other couples were eating out there. The bartender made a fuss about getting a server to wait on us. So my husband ordered some drinks while we waited and the bartender did not want to serve us because they were... More

I've given up on Cody's. This restaurant has really, REALLY gone down hill and it's 100% due to the horrible service. We sat ourselves at a booth in the bar for 6 minutes and decided to move to the (nearly empty) bar thinking we'd finally be greeted, but no; 6 more minutes had passed before we were finally greeted with...

Went here with my family (party of 3) and the wait to sit was not long, nor was the restaurant busy at all. After a 40 minute wait after placing our food order we still had not received our food and started to wonder where our food was. The restaurant was not busy and there were open tables the whole...

Great staff, great value, and great food. I highly recommend going here plus the rolls are out of this world.

We called ahead if time and made reservations for 12. They said they would have a table ready, but when we got there they made us split up into separate groups! None of them even seemed concerned about how we only get to see our family once a year. I'm absolutely outraged about this terrible service. And on top of... More

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
