Hi, Codfather's has been closed since November. I think you're referring to the Placida Grill which now operates in the same location. Codfather's was known for fair prices and portions. It's something of which we were quite proud. Thanks, Liz

Codfather's was the best restaurant in the Englewood, FL area. Very sorry to find the doors closed. Hopefully this will be a temporary situation and they will open elsewhere in the area. Best wishes to the owners an staff. You are missed!
