We went for drinks and bite with friends - the atmosphere was casual, the service warm. The owner chatted with us and made our experience feel very personal.

Lots of good variety on the menu and the three of us shared a squash, pepperoni and goat cheese pizza, wedge salad, fish tacos and chicken wings. Too much food but all of it good; although I would have preferred slightly spicier wings. Service was attentive and lots of nooks and crannies to sit in and feel quite cozy.

Such a great spot!!! Inside tables and a 3 season room with fireplaces and couches! The wine list is extremely extensive and they encourage you to taste the wines that you are interested in. NICOLE, our waitress, was awesome! She advised on wines and was very knowledgeable about the menu. We liked so much of the menu but were told... More

loved my meal and wine. Atmosphere is a work in progress, we were seated near a space that didn't look finished yet but I would definitely return for another meal.

Despite its small size, Conundrum Wine Bistro has one of the most extensive wine selections one will ever find in a New England seacoast town, and the owner, Vinny, is as knowledgeable about the fruit of the vine as any barkeep or sommelier I ever have met. On a recent visit my sister was debating between ordering a Pinot Grigio... More

Conundrum is a wine bar a little off the beaten path. I expected it to be in town Freeport where all the tourists frequent, but you have to drive a few miles out of town to get there. When you walk in the front door, there is a small bar and a few smaller intimate tables in the main room.... More

The innkeeper at Kendall Tavern recommended this restaurant to us and the suggestion was on point! My son and I shared the wings and pizza and both were superb. The service was impeccable and extremely cordial and the food was perfectly prepared and delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is going to be in the Freeport... More

Dinner outside on a Wed. Evening. Arrived after 7:30, no problem getting a table. My husband ordered the burger and thought it was wonderfully seasoned. I got the pork chop, great favoring, tender, and good side dishes. Nice beer selection, and nice wine by the glass selection. EnjoyM

Food here is excellent and prepared and served with much care. The menu changes regularly and never gets boring. The owner, Vinnie, is super nice and makes a point to visit and make you feel welcome. Very reasonable prices, great bar with experienced bartenders and very good service. Indoor and covered (and heated) outdoor seating. Very cozy place and again... More
