Four years ago when living in Ocala we ate at Cody’s in Ocala On SR 200 quite a bit. We now live close to the one on 42. We won’t go back, my wife was served a rib dish that came out as cold as if it were taken from the refrigerator and placed on a plate. We gave them a 2nd chance and the 2nd time was not good. Seems to me it’s place more for the booze factor, hell if you have enough booze who even cares what’s the eat.

Rumors are flying that Corporate is buying our present owners of Cody's in the Villages. Anyone else hear that. Also, sorry to see Hacienda Hills Restaurant closing. We had some good memories there, but not in the last few years. Someone should step up who knows what they are doing and turn it around before it ends up like El Santiago.

It's all about management and the service/kitchen help. So many places to work around here with full employment attracts unprofessional staffs. The low wages and job opportunity most likely causes huge turnover. Perhaps the large chain restaurants with trained managements might be the places to go? Cody's in one location may be far better in another. Only difference is the management and staff?? JMHO

You point out an underlying major problem that plague many restaurants in The Villages. Getting experence and competent staff. The pool of labor isn’t keeping up with the growth of The Villages. It also appears to be true in the staffing of medical professionals. Another Thread.

About two months ago was our last visit to Cody’s in Brownwood. We brought two guests from out of town. The time was 5:15 and the wait area was full of people and wait time 45 minutes. After about 15 minutes, I wandered back to the rest room area noticing several empty tables. The staffing shortage was quite noticeable. After about 50 minutes we were finally seated and it was another 45 minutes or so before we got our food. The Server was pleasant and did the best she could for obviously being stressed and overworked. I had eaten so many peanuts that I really can’t give you an accurate evaluation of the food. I paid the bill and left a 20% tip. In spite of all this, we still enjoyed the evening - it was because of the “company” more than where we were having dinner. We try not to sweat the small stuff.

Florida and Texas are in a big economic boom right now so many people are moving to better opportunities. I can imagine being a waitress or medical professional in a retirement community is constantly aggravating and very undesirable work (you can tell just by looking at the expression on their faces). At least the medical people are sucking down big bucks out of Medicare.
