“This gem is right up the road in Yarmouth. The food is great, there’s plenty of parking and it’s a great place for a date night or a family dinner. And the best thing, no tv at the bar. You will likely end up talking to a new friend! Sunday brunch is fabulous and there is always live music. ”

“Tidal beaches here are only good swimming two hours before and after high tide, but then they are often GREAT swimming! The water here is warmer than exposed beaches. You can swim your dog at the boat launch area, and leash walk through the park. The playground and beach are both off-limits to dogs, but otherwise very dog friendly. Live music on Thursday evenings! ”

“So cozy! Fantastic wine selection, very good beer selection too. The room in the back has two gas stoves to provide ambience and several couches and chairs in addition to the tables. Inside is darker and more private feeling. The menu is good for sure, with more selections for small plates. But you come to Conundrum for atmosphere and drinks.”
