Description: 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!

Wren is an excellent restaurant with several out-of-the-ordinary dishes. They have an excellent wine list as well. It is popular, so reservations are recommended.

Went to this resturant as guest of friends who live in Beaufort area. It had been suggested to them. Food was ordinary and expensive. Lively bar crowd, don't know if they were waiting for a table or just there for the bar. Our friends had made reservations. Much better resturants available in Beaufort, SC. Would not return.

We visited here for lunch and a day of sightseeing in Beaufort. We usually go to restaurants on the main street but everything was packed with lineups outside. There were some tour buses in the parking lots. We have driven past Wren a few times but it looked as if it was closed and we assumed it was a dining... More

My husband and I stopped into this restaurant for the first time, and had a wonderful dinner. The fried green tomatoes were excellent, and the Lobster and Shellfish Bisque was fabulous. My husband's dinner of fried flounder with dirty rice was very tasty, and my crab cakes were the same. Portion sizes were generous and we had lunch the following... More

Never in my life have I been humiliated and yelled in a restaurant before. The service was very slow, the waitress ignored us all night, took an hour to get a drink and order, an hour and a half to get the food. When we asked a different server if we could get some bread while we waited, it was... More

We were looking for a special meal and found it at Wren. We got last minute reservations and had a wonderful server who knew all about the menu. The crab cakes were loaded with crab, the salads were just amazing, and the entres made the night special. We talked with another couple dining there who confirmed our observation of quality... More

We had lunch here yesterday. We had made a reservation and they said they had no record of it. We said we were going somewhere else but they said they could seat us so we stayed. We were then told that they'd have to check with the kitchen before they could take our order. One of the salads didn't get... More

Wren is my hands down favorite "go-to" spot in Beaufort for a great lunch, girls' night out, date night with the hubby, or burger Thursday with the kids. Love the atmosphere, wait staff, and food. You don't want to miss this place when visiting!

Four of us were wandering around Beaufort, SC looking to find some dinner. We walked all over town and the menu at Wren just jumped out at us. On top of that a couple leaving the restaurant highly recommended it. The service was fabulous and the food was wonderful! They have a wonderful spread for bread and we went through... More
