Wren Bistro and Bar is a locally owned and operated restaurant and bar that features an ever evolving menu for both lunch and dinner. The kitchen uses delicious locally caught seafood, great cuts of steak, juicy chicken, and tasty pasta dishes. The portions are enormous (the 18 oz ribeye, and the 12-14 oz burgers for example!) and are easily big enough to share. We compliment the lunch and dinner menus with a staff of professional servers and bartenders who are very knowledgeable, always courteous, and very entertaining. The décor is elegant, yet modern and hip. So, if you and yours are looking for a great experience, and even better food, come check us out anytime Monday through Saturday, between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. Reservations are not required, but always welcomed!

Pre-deployment dinner

My family and I came here for my brothers pre-deployment dinner and experienced excellent service. Adam was our server, he was very attentive and prompt with any request. I highly recommend to make this a pit stop if you are ever in Beaufort, and request Adam!

Have enjoyed two dinners at Wren and look forward to many more while working in Beaufort, SC. The special of Frogmore Stew was very flavorful with shrimp and sausage along with potatoes and mini corn. They have a good take on shrimp and grits. The chef prepares seafood perfectly with a delicious sauce. Try the calamari appetizer. The mango iced... More

Very nice server and lovely atmosphere. My friend and I both had the chicken salad which was excellent as promised.

Great place for lunch or dinner. The "girl's place to be." Attentive and informative wait service. Fried chix sandwich was delicious. Avoid the corner table behind in bar in the main part of the restaurant.

We have been here a few more times since my last review and the food and service are still excellent. Parking can be a problem and the interior décor is a little bland, which only adds to the ambiance. My wife and I both enjoyed the shrimp salad while our guests really liked the apple/cranberry salad and the child’s pizza.... More

This place needs to get a grip. We got up and left due to the fact that we were ignored. We were never acknowledged and treated with obvious disregard. Good food can never overcome bad service but we never even got that far. I hope this places figures out what in the hell they are doing. I was severely disappointed... More

Had a very bad experience with service. After being seated Waited 20 to 30 minutes for waiter to come to our table, then it took over 50 minutes before food was delivered. Some food came out 10 to 15 minutes before other food. Very disappointed. Probably won't go back.

We took our family and friends to Wren Bistro to celebrate our son's earning his Master's Degree. I was disappointed in our service. The server had difficulty opening the wine and actually spilled it on my husband's arm & napkin. Our friend asked for Splenda for his tea, which we had to ask for again. One of the people in...

About 7 neighbors and I went recently to dine at Wren. We all enjoyed our meal! We didn't realize it was burger night, so it was busy. We had reservations and were seated promptly. I enjoyed the shrimp & grits. Everyone enjoyed their burgers. A few friends got a grilled veggie appetizer or salad and said it was wonderful. We... More

Wren has always been one of our favorite places to eat and one where we usually bring guests that are visiting Beaufort. However, the experience lately has been spotty culminating in what was one of our worst meals in Beaufort. The service was extremely slow and my hamburger was way over cooked, to the point where it shouldn't have been... More
