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!

Our family could not have enjoyed a better venue to celebrate our Marine's graduation and first celebratory meal off MCRD Parris Island. Wren Bistro's atmosphere was entirely pleasant, the food was delicious, and Alison attended our party with friendly service, courtesy, respect, precision and promptness! Our luncheon was a memorable event for our friends and family. We thank Wren Bistro's... More

We have been there several times and it is always lovely. When I say "Ladies who lunch" I mean mother, two daughters and toddler granddaughter. We all had a great time and yummy food. The atmosphere is delightful. We've only been there for lunch, so I can only speak to that. Great salads and sandwiches, attentive (but not hovering) staff,... More

We went to dinner at Wren with another couple. What we like best about Wren is that it has small plates and skillets so you do not feel so full. The wedge salad was perfect and I had the shrimp scampi. My husband likes the crab cakes. Another person had the salmon and it looked wonderful! We have to give... More

I went during the break between lunch and dinner, 3-5 pm, so only got what I consider " bar food." On the greasy side but t tasty. I don't usually eat fried food so most people wouldn't have a problem with it. Nicely served and good portion. Server was really accommodating to my request. Best to check the time before... More

Wren's food is good for lunch or dinner but it really shines at lunch. Awesome salads (add the salmon, it's worth it) great chicken salad. The place is decorated very urban and they keep the lights low which I like. A fun place! I've been here more times than I can count and a few times the service hasn't been... More

We went for cocktails and stayed for dinner. The f rites were wonderful and my daughter and I shared the tournadoes, steak done perfectly and a wonderful sauce. Beautiful yet comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Loved the whole experience.

Lunch over the holiday weekend--the food was a nice change from turkey and stuffing. Sandwiches were well presented and yummy. In fact our whole meal was delicious--and everything we saw going past us to other table looked wonderful. Service was very friendly--but also slow, which is why I did not go with 5 stars. Partly our fault as we wandered... More

I must start by saying that the Grilled Shrimp Cobb Salad I had was very good and a nice twist on a classic. The service was very good. I liked the large glass bottle of iced water on the table, but I should not have needed it. They only had mango-flavored iced tea. Especially in the south, unflavored iced tea... More

Fair assortment of draft beers and a good mango tea. Tomato bisque soup was good but too much Parmesan cheese overwhelmed the more subtle flavors. Fish sandwich with their coleslaw was very good. Lots of tasty ham on the grilled cheese and ham sandwich. Server forgot to bring the soup and apparently was fairly new as she left the water... More
