Terrible service and place is filthy, old sticky food all over the menus and silverware. Prices way too high for the quality of food served. Waited 20 minutes to even see a waitress, ordered drinks and not friendly. After almost 30 minutes still no drinks and waitress no where to be found, so we just left and went to Gators and had great service there. Will not be going back to Codys until they get their act together and clean the place up.

The din in the restaurant is overwhelming...The service is acceptable, depending on the server; the food is over done for the most part and the price of Yuegling (sp) beer is $12.50 a regular pitcher....$12.50 for domestic beer!!!!...Only go there for the 2/1 fajitas...on Wed...

came in for lunch on Wednesday was told no lunch menu or early dinner menu ordered daily special of grouper fingers

food came and fish was very dark taste was bland not at all worth 15 price tag

on way home had to stop and throw up

called and spoke to assistant manager to have hime check fish before serving others he said he would check and call me back
Never heard from him guess he just wanted to get rid of me

liked this restaurant before bur most likely will not be back

Just had dinner tonight with my husband and brother-in-law. Simple order... Burgers and chicken. Waited an exorbitant amount of time for the order ( after rush hour - about 8:30 pm). Two dinners as ordered- one burger ordered medium rare arrived very well done/ sent it back. Everyone finished dinner when the re-ordered burger arrived .......we'll done. Sent it back. Waitress apologized / manager took burger off the bill. Never have sent food back Twice in my entire life!

Definitely a problem here in the kitchen and with management. By the way.... I have worked in Foodservice for 43 years. I have only sent food back 3 times ( twice tonight) - they never got it right!

We once again had the pleasure of taking out of town guest to dine at Cody's. Thank you Ashley for waiting on us and thanks to James and Carrie making sure we were well taken care of. It is so nice to see friendly faces in a very busy place. The food was good and served in a timely manner. We look forward to returning to eat at Cody's.

I am so horrified by what I just witnessed in your business by a man who claimed to be the general manager and the server said his name was James... A faily next to us whom I spoke with outside before coming in and she was a very polite and well informed woman about the Villages as My husband and I were there looking for a new home..(which I am giving a second thought if this is the type of people that work in these places out here..Plus I am sending this letter to the ceo of the Villages and the local paper... The woman was having a problem and was being polite this rude and untrained man was so nasty and didn't have one skill nor training in him..I will never visit one of your establishments again nor will anyone I know..This man told this woman and her family to get out and raised his hand to her she was in tears and my husband almost got up to knock this man down..Who is this kid who thinks he is a man to talk to customers like he did no matter what was going on.. What a disqusting way to run a business..

Signed a very unhappy customer

Just received horrible service. Waitress Heidi was slow and inattentive. We never received a refill for the whole meal until we flagged down manager Brian who didn't seem to care we were receiving bad service. No excuses the restaurant was almost empty. No apologie from Brian the Manger and no offer for a discount on the bill. Not the kind of service you expect in the villages. Don't eat a Cody's. Plenty of other choices with best service and better food.

My husband and I went to your Restaurant in Sumter Landing, today and had the most pleasant waitress, her name was Ashley, she was pleasant from the time we arrived until we left... The food was delicious, and hot...Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place for anyone to go to, not sure when we will be back as we are from Nova Scotia, Canada, but if and when we do come back for a visit, we will certainly make Cody's Orginal Roadhouse in Sumter Landing one of our stopping places.. Thank you Ashley for making our lunch so pleasant....Ron and Donna Barkhouse



Bathroom needs cleaning

The food is always good. My golf group eats lunch there a couple times a month. The last two times we ate there I noticed that the mens bathroom smelled like a gas station bathroom from the '60s. In other words, it hadn't been cleaned for quite a while.



The manager acted as if my gir...

The manager acted as if my girlfriend and I were his personal enemy..He is a fat punk and if I wasn't with her I would have told this punk exactly that..Service and food were aweful. Update 7/29/13 spoke with the new manager Barry he was professional and informed me that the old manager that was rude does not work there anymore. After my next visit if all goes well and we are treated as guests and don't have to wait 35 minutes at our table for our drinks I will change my review.
