Waited at the bar what felt like ten minutes, finally left. Bartender sarcastically said, sorry sir, were busy. Walked in the restaurant, told the manager what happened, he sat me at a table, same thing, finally walked out. I have been to Cody's in the past, food is usually good, same with service. Would not go back. Went to Longhorn... More

The service is very good. The steaks are delicious. There are peanuts all over the floors. They have a special tasting butter with cinnamon.

Just had some of the worst service ever. Waitress (Maria) never refilled soda or came back to check on my meal. She only stopped to take my order and bring some average food. Baked potato was over done and tough an dry. Sirloin steak was a ball of meat, not a steak. Rolls were over baked and flat. Very disappointing... More

We had a waitress named Sarah - first off it took her a while to even come over to the table. When she did she took our drink order which we had to repeat back to her twice. She was gone about 5 minutes and came to the table and said "what can I get you to drink"? We told... More

Since we enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner here last year we decided to do it again. We had reservations for 5:00 and they got us to a table by 5:15. Those without reservations had a choice of eating on the outside terrace or waiting longer. Our waitress wrote her name on our tablecloth ("red") and she was very accommodating. This is one... More

We always try to get to Cod y,s when visiting AMI from the UK. After a fortnight eating in fish restaurants with our veggie relatives, we craved red meat. This is the place. The whole decor and ambience is of a southwestern roadhouse, scruffy, quirky and we love it. Especially being able to shuck peanuts and sweep the husks onto... More
