An authentic Southern experience.
The Depot at Cody Creek is a mile south of Dobson on NC Highway 601 and four miles off Interstate 77 in the rolling hills at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Freddy and his family have been developing the property for 35 years, beginning with the restaurant in 2000. What was once tobacco fields and cattle pastures, now features handcrafted buildings of white pine and hardwoods. Accompanying the restaurant are four cozy cabins, a clubhouse, gazeebo, banquet hall, and wedding chapel.
Co-owner Kathy Snow, Freddy’s wife, oversees the restaurant which features a relaxed atmosphere and a menu with all the staples – ribs, steak, chicken, seafood and salads. Sundays offer an authentic Southern home-style menu, typically featuring pot roast, meatloaf, fried chicken, cornbread and an array of vegetables. Kathy's daughter, Kayla, makes the delicious desserts. The Depot gets its name from the Sanford Depot, where Freddy bought many of the parts incorporated in the restaurant’s décor.
Brides and travelers to the area’s popular wineries and vineyards love the Cody Creek experience. For weddings there is our beautiful Chapel, adorned with stained glass windows reminiscent of the late 19th century. With seating up to 100, it is the perfect venue for that special moment. For the reception, there are a couple of options. The Clubhouse and Gazeebo make a perfect setting for intimate gatherings, while the Grand Banquet Hall is ideal for larger events and can hold up to 300 guests.
Cody Creek’s four cozy cabins offer honeymooners and romantic travelers a peaceful place to relax while soaking up the simple charm of the old South. Whether you plan to stay with us a while or just want to drop in unannounced for tasty lunch with friends, we’re eager to see you and hope your time spent at Cody Creek will leave you with fond memories to enjoy for years to come.
