I cant believe the high prices! Dining room was filthy, and food took way too long considering we were the only table there. Well now i know why.\r
The soup was cold and tasted like salt, who pays 4$ for french fries? \r
DO NOT EAT HERE!

My partner and I decided to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city restuarants for a change last weekend. I let him pick the spot for a romantic night out. He chose The Good Times Lakeview Restaurant for it's view of Ballston Lake

Hello customers,

I am so sorry for your dining experiences at my restaurant which were well below satisfactory. The sad thing is I thought everything was going well. I was really out of it. Most of you who have taken time to right the reviews are local or repeat diners who knew I could do better. Well, long story short I just put my husband/partner at age (43) in a saratoga nursing home Sept (08). He has a terminal illness called secondary progressive M.S. combined with advanced dementia. He was sick six years prior but my kids and I thought we could keep the restaurant going properly, while caring for his progressive ilness. As I can see I was so wrong. I failed at everything. I am so sorry because I know how important quality time is with loved ones. And dining out should not be stressful. The good news is, I am back to work full time at The Good Times Lakeview Restaurant. I have a new attitude, chef and menu but the same "Good Times". We have a new gluten free menu, new $8.95 lite dinner menu and take requests for romantic fireside dining. The Good Times is back and I will give you a 1000% gaurentee that you will be happy before you leave. No, I am not perfect but I have a new understanding of humility and how precious dining with love ones is. Lets carry on the tradtion of 36 years longer...Don't forget to go to my web site www.goodtimesrestaurant and download a $7.00 coupon to help during these crazy economic times. Thank You for your trust and understanding.

Your host,

Desiree

Pros: A family restaurant with alot of history

Cons: The family has gone through tremendous amounts of tradagy

.

Ate their once and wasn't impressed with the over-priced food. Also didn't much like their menu selections. The view is across from the lake, not on the lake.

The Good Times restaurant was terrible! The 6 of us ordered 6 different meals We didn't receive what was promised on the menu's description of the entrees. 4 out of the 6 of us, got different "substitutions" that the owner made without telling us first. These substitutions didn't even go with the rest of the different meals. The meals tasted like it was canned cheap food being passed off as homemade or possibly restaurant quality and the salads were wilted. And the final kicker, everything was very highly priced! Not worth it at all! I would never waist my money on this place again. We were all very disappointed!

Went there last summer and the food was good - excellent homemade fries. Went again a couple months ago and the food wasn't so good. Tried it again and boy did it go down hill even more. The steak tips were grey and grizzly and floating in some kind of buttery liquid. No more homemade fries evidently. Owner would not take the one meal off the check and it was not eaten. Owner would not even come to the table. Will never go back.

Locals won't go there because she is rude and arrogant. The place would be a goldmine under new ownership. It sits on a beutiful lake and she dosn't cater to local boaters or snowmobilers. She won't allow jetskis in at her boat launch. It is the only one on the lake.Food is mediocre ass well.

THIS RESTAURANT WAS A PLACE I HAD WANTED TO GO TO FOR A WHILE. SO IMAGINE MY DISSAPOINTMENT WHEN THE SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE. BUT HEY EVERYONE HAS A BAD DAY, SO WE TRIED IT AGAIN. THIS TIME IT WAS EVEN WORSE, AND WHEN WE TRIED TO TALK TO THE OWNER SHE DIDNT EVEN CARE. AVOID AT ALL COSTS, THERE IS A LOT MORE TO THE STORY, BUT REALLY NOT WORTH WASTING BOTH OUR TIMES TO GO THROUGH IT AGAIN, JUST TRUST THAT THEY ARE NOT WORTH THE TIME AND VISIT. ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE ARE A LOT MORE FAMILY RUN BUSINESSES THAT ARE TRYING SO HARD, AND DESERVE THE BUSINESS.
