Sit outside where they have live music every night. Get a bar meal or one off the main menu. Sit in a quiet booth if you prefer, good choice of food and don't forget the free peanuts which are scattered over the floor when eaten. This can give the plade a run down look but don't be fooled by that,... More

First time here and very enjoyable experience. Everyone loved their meal from the salad and rolls to the main course. I had the blackened salmon and it was cooked perfectly and seasoned nicely. The servers were pleasant, friendly and attentive. Will definitely return.

Normally I like Cody's steaks, flavor, tenderness, price, all pretty good. Every once in a while we wait extra time to get in to be seated, but the reward is a money off coupon. That is what brings us back. This time, Wed. Night, I was returning To Cody's Lake Sumpter Landing. I deviated from my usual Rib Eye steak... More

I write this after just having Cody's Thanksgiving feast. It seemed like a good deal 50 bucks to feed four. I don't where to start on how bad it was. We picked up our meal at noon, came home and immediately started heating things up. The turkey, ham, stuffing, green beans were in one container. It was a runny mess,... More

Stopped for a quick bite. Were seated quickly, but service never showed. Were about to leave when manager showed up. Got a simple salad and left. No apology, no discount, Wouldn't go back.

Cody's has en excellent holiday deal where you buy a $100 gift certificate and get a $20 bonus voucher. Unlike other places doing this where the voucher can only be used during a specific time, at Cody's they can apply it to your check right then. So we had a $30 meal, bought the $100 gift certificate (no expiration) and... More
