    Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year is always a lot of work; everyone this year is playing catch up. We decided to share the joy by heading out for this special night. This lovely spot offered not only the traditional meal but Entertainment. There was no work, no setup, cooking, clean-up, just Love & fun. Judy, the wonderful owner offered a lovely dinner; some of the offerings were gefileta fish, chopped liver, matza ball soup, brisket, and chicken. There were also latkas, salads, and deserts, Icecream with Halva or Honey cake. All the food was wonderful and cooked with love. The Comedy shows were lots of fun and kept everyone laughing. All in All a great evening was had by all.

    We have been to the Free Times on many occasions. The food is never overly fancy, but always very good in both taste and presentation. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is no delay, but you never feel rushed. And often some very good live music to boot.

    We booked for a family with kids and also grandma. The range of the menu allowed for everyone to find dishes to their liking. Kids loved the nachos. Parents loved the drinks menu and the friendly, warm, and attentive welcoming service. This is a great casual spot with an interesting, eclectic ambiance and a relaxed vibe. We hope to be back to check out the live music offerings!
