Read other reviews and it as recommended by a local thought it would be good. But I had a fried fish basket and the fish was as thin as poster board and the fries were way too salt. Hubby had fried oysters that had some hot spice on them and that was all you could taste. The Slaw was very... More

We went for the all-you-can-eat fried shrimp. You order when you walk-in... but you REALLY should find a table first. The food was good but after your first serving, you only get 2 more shrimp at a time... it was kind of like a dog begging for food... get 2 shrimp, eat and wait 5-10 min for 2 more. The... More

A neighborhood bar with a nice selection of food. At first I wanted to leave and go somewhere else, since you had to stand in line and order food at one end of the bar, then you're given a cup to get your own soft drink, pick up your silverware and other accoutrements from a table. Food was then delivered... More

This place was crowded, with kids running around with no supervision. You order when you walk in and then find a place to sit, which isn't good because you can't tell if there's going to be seating for your size group. The outdoor miniature golf was sadly in need of repair. There were children running wild and acting terrible. Parents... More

I've been going to Kody's almost every time I go to Port Aransas. Last time (last November) the service was good, but the food was off just a little. I didn't think much about it at the time. This time the place was empty (very unusual) and my fried shrimp was over-cooked and had no flavor at all. They've had... More

The shrimp basket and the duo basket were both over breaded and over cooked. This is a bar that thinks it's a restaurant. Won't go back here again for dinner.

We went for dinner & ordered garlic fish & ahi tuna taco. Both were wonderful. It was very busy night we went but friendly ambience made it easy to stay. One of best restaurants we have been to in Port A.

I was looking for a place to get a good steak in this sea food mecca. We had Kody's recommended to us and gave it a whirl. Thanks for the advice. The steak is not frozen and is cut when the order goes to the kitchen. It was very flavorful, juicy and thick. I often find steaks in sea food... More
