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!

Good setting and atmosphere, decent service. However, the food was ok at best. Calamari was heavy and deep fried and plain and I would avoid the pasta dishes. On the other hand, one of our party raved about her steak and the salads were good. Overall our table agreed that the light foods (salads and grilled fish) were best. I... More

Finally...after living in Beaufort for almost three years, I have tried Wren! My girl friends and I went for dinner after The Chocolate Tree's All You Can Eat night. The atmosphere was very relaxing with a modern flair look. I loved, loved the atmosphere. It was definitely a nice place for a romantic date with the hubs or friends. I... More

We have heard from friends that Wren's food was fantastic, so we went out on a limb and took our out-of-town guests there for lunch. It exceeded our expectations on all fronts. We enjoyed the fried chicken sandwich, the brined grilled chicken sandwich and the pecan/cranberry chicken salad sandwich. We each brought a half sandwich home for dinner. The atmosphere... More

Our second visit to Wren was as outstanding as the first. The ambiance is warm though contemporary in style. A friend and I had the best chicken salad platter, with remarkable bread and fresh fruit ,yum. To accompany this we had mango iced tea - delicious!

Excellent quality, service and value. Barrel cut sirloin one of the best steaks we have ever had. Reasonable wine list as well.

1st visit to Wren...best shrimp and grits in the low country! Drinks were exquisite - thanks Tiffany! - and the hostess (red hair) was delightful. Service was excellent. We'll be back again and again!

Had a modern jazz atmosphere, not really over done just little things like the style of the booth and the jazz playing. The food, while not huge portions, was the correct serving size and very good. Priced about what you would think for a sit down restaurant

This was my second visit to the Wren. We seem to visit other restaurants when in Beaufort and had decided to try it again. We were not disappointed. We lucked out with on-street parking but I believe that there is a parking lot in the back with an entrance to service it. We were seated for lunch right away. The... More

Had reservation... one person said it would be "a while" and another person took us to a table right away. No menus could be found, no special offerings were announced, even though they had some great ones., waitress second week on job and could not find things, drinks took 19 minutes to be served. If staff was better trained, informed,... More
