Located on Tierra Verde, south of St Petersburg, this restaurant is worth seeking out. The service is great and the "continental menu" is delightful. We have eaten there several times a year for over 20 years and never had a bad meal. An excellent change from the 'cookie cutter' chain restraurants.

We were recommended by friends to try Good Times. The food was excellent . I had a steak which was cooked to perfection. The service was also very good. Unfortunately we were the only customers there so there was zero atmosphere & we felt that we were being rushed to finish our meal. The Closed sign was on the door... More

When we lived a few blocks from the Good Times, we ate there once or twice a month for 10 years. We still eat there whenever we are in that area, so our rating is based on more than 100 meals over the years. We never had a bad meal or poor service. Meals were almost always excellent, and just...

Czech (Central European) cuisine: e.g. schnitzels and dumplings. Very congenial personnel. Mostly older clientele. Good value for money. Don't expect nouvelle here, portions are more than ample.

We come back every year when we vacation in the Don Cesar hotel. We enjoy the food and always order the "czech" roasted duck with the potato dumplings and the sweet and sour cabbage. We love it and always struggle to finish, as the serving is so large. There is a soup and salad included with the entree. This time... More

We arrived as a group of nine. The hospitality was great, the family was there to make us feel welcome. The food I had was excellent, not just because of the skill in cooking but because in the obvious care in getting the freshest of ingredients to cook with. There is a Czech Essence. Don't miss it

Over 40 years of continual outstanding Eastern European cuisine and still going. Good Times continues to be our favorite year after year. The Scamp, Steaks, Goulash, Duck and Veal dishes have never disappointed. Price includes soup, salad and entrèe. Good beer and wine choices, and deserts are outstanding. Remember, cash only. Our only disappointment is when they run out of... More

My wife's birthday is Jan. 18; and I made a reservation for dinner at 6pm. When we arrived, the owner approached us and said we had about one hour for dinner. They were busy and needed the table shortly; but one hour would allow us plenty of time. We were stunned and should have left; but I did not want... More

If you remember the great food you had in the Czech Republic, Germany, or Austria, this place is for you! The friendliness and professionalism if the staff is what you'd expect of the best restaurants in Central Europe. And the food...the best of its kind I've had in the States. Be sure to order a dish with the potato dumplings.... More

White tablecloth ambience. Family owned with good friendly service. The menu is continental ...a bit Czech, a bit Swiss-German, and a bit French. I ordered scad (mild white fish) piccata. It was well prepared. The menu features many veal and fish preparations typical of continental cuisine. We ordered escargot for the table and we all felt they were a little... More
