Mary Cody

Chef and Owner

Mary Cody started back in 1992 as a chef in training with a friend.  As her talents grew so did her reputation.  She soon transformed an old bank into Traditions Restaurant. Traditions stood for time tested elegant meals and was often packed with special occasion customers. Mary got the bug to offer more to the residents of the Coulee Region and soon opened Maggie’s next store serving more of a day to day cuisine. Today Mary Cody’s offers a combination of both special occasion foods and some amazing comfort foods.

If you are looking for an outstanding catered event, Mary Cody is the one to call. She has years of experience in small to very large events with top reviews.

Party with us!



From our menu to our catering, all delicious!

What people


The word from


When I was a little girl I loved cooking with my mother. So many great memories and flavors. As I raised a family I learned that cooking came from the heart and sometimes I had to cook faster to keep the family fed and sometimes I had recipes that took time, preparation and to pay special attention to the details. As I grew into cooking at restaurants and had excellent teachers and mentors.  I have taken from all of my experiences to come up with my own style and flare of cooking.

I invite you to come and taste some of my creations and to give me your honest opinions.  I grow and so does my business with great feed back.
