Small place small servings, not all that impressed and will probably not go back. The only thing not so small was the price.

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

We were really looking forward to eating here having read other Trip Advisor glowing reports and a new place to eat in the area. But I must say we were disappointed. If we had turned up without reading any reviews I would have reported it as an OK diner but it did not live up to my expectations. We were seated in a back corner with a view of the emergency exit and restrooms. The food was served efficiently and although my wife's meal was OK my fish and chips were not up to a good standard, the batter too thick and hard and the chips overcooked. We may have turned up on a bad night so we will give it another chance on our next return to the area. You don't get all these good reviews for nothing.

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!

Dinner for 4 with tax & tip including 1 bottle wine $125 ! Twin lobster tails were delicious , but very small, baked potato & salad were great! Fried whole belly clams were good! Our waitress was Candace and she was Awesome! Very attentive service, adequate atmosphere , crowded on Friday night, but we got a table and were served in very little Time! We'll be back! Cheers!
