Default Cody's At Mulberry

We entered at about 6:30 last night. Surprised that they were not very busy. Sign said they were out of Hamburgers, really. We were ready to dine there anyway. When Hostess arrived to seat us she told us they were out of approximately a dozen other menu item which she named.

What kind of Management?

We went elsewhere.

Makes me think/wonder if that location might simply close overnight.

Does anyone know for certain how long that location has been open?

I've mentioned this incident in the past, but it should be repeated--A gentleman I know can walk to that Cody's--he went there when it first opened--his companion ordered a slab of ribs, the ribs slid off the plate & landed on the floor--the waitress put it back on the plated & tried to serve it--they walked out & have never returned--looks like mgt is still as lousy as ever

It probably opened in 2018? I remember going to the VA and seeing the construction, it wasn't that long ago.

Why they weren't busy, no food

Because we live close, we stop by every now and then at Cody's in Mulberry. We have had many more BAD experiences than good. Management is a revolving door and the attention to any level of customer service is below poor.

Never seen the fascination of Cody's, I mean a steel bowl of salad with no choice of dressing to share with others give me a break.

You must hear about our experience at Cody’s Mulberry. We live nearby so sometimes it’s just easier. Last time we went, the gal that seated us took our drink order. She wrote it ON HER HAND!!! After at least 10 to 15 minutes and still no drinks, we were told her shift was over and she left!! Kind of amazing!!

All Cody’s in TV should be closed and cleaned. The amount of dust and grime on the ceiling is unbelievable for a food establishment. The drink specials are less than a full pour so you’re not really getting anything special!

The prime attraction of Cody's is that it has a reasonable number of beers on tap, decent entertainment most evenings, and OK food with OK prices. I live less than 1/2 mile from the new Mulberry location. I used to go to Lake Sumter regularly, and was always served in a reasonable time.

The Mulberry location seems to have a hard time finding good management and good staff. Service generally ranges from mediocre to absolutely horrible. I don't understand how the other Cody's don't seem to have these issues, but it's been constant at Mulberry. As I stated - it's 1/2 mile away, and we don't frequent the restaurant. The dining experience is generally horrible.

We do go occasionally when they have a good singer... but that's it.

Oh man, that's terrible! Of course I've only been to the Mulberry Cody's one time & was OK. I started going to the Cody's in Sumter Landing because they were the only one that had a meal that I liked. The one in Brownwood was just OK, but didn't have a very big selection. They won't be in business very long if that continues! Give them another try & if they have the same problem don't go again! Sorry to hear that thou.
