We went here on two occasions. Food is okay. Rolls are excellent and service is mediocre but it is usually pretty busy

Large and varied menu. Fish entrees were very tasty and the portions are large. Meals come with an "all you can eat salad". The staff was friendly and the décor fun.

SO MUCH FUN to sit at the bar and eat peanuts out of a tin bucket! But the best part is the menu. I always, always, always get the rice and black beans because it is fabulous! The big salad is great, good sides, and it is just a really fun place! Come on down!

Cody's has live entertainment probably every night. It has an atmosphere of fun, peanuts on the floor, & a high energy level type place. The food is terrific also with great dinners from ribs to salmon.

Waiter was rude and screwed up order. Will ignore you if you are not drinking alcohol. Food is good but service was terrible.

I loved this place. They serve peanuts at the table for snacking when you arrive. Feel free to throw the shells are the floor because that is part of the atmosphere. The food was excellent, along with the service. Great happy hour and great prices. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. We also enjoyed live music while we were there.
