“If you want a steak or a good burger and nice huge house salad, with peanuts to eat and throw the shells on the floor with a full liquor bar & over in the Crystal River Area, after swimming or kayaking with the manatees, then Cody's is a good option. I think Weds they have 2 for the price of 1 steak and/or chicken fajitas. Good place for chicken wings as well. Good variety of food. ”

“A locally owned & family operated BBQ restaurant, and it's the place to go when you’re craving the true flavor of slow smoked Competition-Style BBQ. Great place to get dinner or lunch after a day of kayaking in Crystal River. Their "Q for 2" is a sampler dinner for 2 people - excellent value!”
