    Default A good time...

    Can anyone help me with the highlighted phrase?

    “You had a good time?” I said.
    It stopped him in his tracks. His arms remained where they were. He looked at me in the mirror, which gave me goose bumps. “A good time was had by one and all,” he said in a hoarse voice that I didn‘t recognize.

    Thank you.

    "One and all" means everyone.

    The Idiom Connection or one*- one idioms and phrases
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
