Reviewed yesterday NEW

We recently moved here and are always on the prowl for a restaurant with good fresh food and great wait staff. The owner of Pat's Dry Cleaners (a Tierra Verde native) named Good Times as her favorite restaurant. I'm not sure we would have tried it without her recommendation. The outside and signage is pretty shabby. My husband loves his... More

Despite the almost universal 5 stars there were only a few tables occupied on a Tuesday at 6 PM. Which is crazy, since all the chic-chic new places are about "fresh", and Good Times has been doing it for 40 years! Maybe it's the type of restaurant on Yelp-"Czech"-or that they don't take cards, just cash(other reviews cite checks also,... More

Great beer and food with a welcoming atmosphere. Recommend based on food and smiling faces. Not fancy decor.

This is a restaurant in a strip mall and it looks run down from the outside. The inside is worn as well. The food and old world hospitality, however, are tough to beat. Stan and Marie are your hosts and greet you warmly. Our waitress was excellent and treated us like family. They have a good selection of beer on... More

This restaurant is in a little strip plaza just south of the Tierre Verde 'downtown' plaza, next to Tony and Nellos. Don't let the outside fool you. This place is efficiently run by Marie & Stan, with their son doing most of the cooking (I think). We have been going here for about 15 years, and although they have a... More

Have been going to Good Times for years and years. The duck is simply the best in the world--better than I have eaten in Prague. Once the awesomely professional waiter told me they were out of duck. I though he was joking. Then I noticed a large party of visitors from China. They had ordered every duck dinner at the... More

One of our favorite places for dinner. The food is always good and nice family atmosphere with lace and linen tablecloths. It has been on the island a long time, which speaks to the quality of the food. The service is excellent. They only take cash though, so come prepared.

Charming host and hostess with years of experience run this "comfort food" restaurant. Always satisfying. My go-to winter restaurant.

This restaurant is a very "old school" family run business. Very worn out atmophere. Very ethnic menu. Locals know it as a place to receive good service and a very traditional experience. Quiet environment.
