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 a great venue for drinks and dinner. We sat at the bar and had drinks and appetizers (shrimp and artichoke dip and the calamari), both were wonderful. Thank you to Tiffany and Tiffany for making our experience especially great. Next time we have dinner!

Our family had a dinner get together at Wren and it could not have been any nicer. Very nice food selection, food preparation is perfect and it's delicious. Pricing is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. It's definitely worth it. The staff also could not have been any more pleasant and helpful. Wren is definitely a wonderful... More

Casual elegance. Food excellent. My pork chops best I've ever eaten. The menu was varied and everyone in our party was happy with their choice. Special cocktail was divine.

This restaurant is on the main street through town and very close to the main business area. It has an active bar scene and a quieter seating area that better suited our desire for conversation. Our group of four started with mussels that we rated as average in taste as compared to several other restaurants over the last two years.... More

Had lunch here today, not my first visit, and brought two friends on my recommendation. We were told the pretty, bright main room was "kind of crowded", and we were led to one of the dark tables on the far side of the bar, near the kitchen and the server's station. We opted for a high top in the bar... More

Enjoyed a quick dinner here at the bar. Very friendly GM was running the bar and filled us in on lots of happenings in Beaufort. Great entree selections, well prepared meal.

Wren Bistro is the first place we had lunch at over five years ago when we were house hunting in Beaufort. Still a fun place for lunch or casual dinner. My husband likes the burgers and as a vegetarian, I recommend the salads - pear and date salad is delicious. Try the mango ice tea.

I often visit Beaufort on business and have tried a few places in town. This restaurant is very conveniently located near my hotel so some colleagues and I decided to have dinner at Wren. We were greeted very graciously and seated at a nice table near the back. We had to have separate checks for business expense purposes AND our... More

Went to Wren for lunch with husband and a friend after a very long spell of not going (previous mediocre experience) and was pleased with both food and service this time. The 12 oz burgers are fantastic...probably the best in Beaufort! The fries that came with it were homemade, thin, crispy, and made from real potatoes...really good! I enjoyed the... More
