We went for lunch to Cody's on a Sunday, the place was packed. Food was great and the setting nicely casual. There is an outdoor sitting area that we could take our little yorkie with us.

This is a nice little place by the sea. The food is good (but not remarkable) and the prices are reasonable. If you’re in the area and hungry this is a decent choice.
