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!

I have been to Wren for lunch and dinner. Glad they brought back half price burger nights on Thursday. Their burgers are incredibly tasty. I like the lunch with the bisque soup and a Caesar or chicken salad plate. And the tea! Whether sweet or unsweet, you must try the tea.

I went here for lunch and I was very pleased with the lunch menu everything was excellent. What really sold me on this place was the service though. I had an excellent waitress named Amber she was very well mannered and gave the hospitality I'd expect visiting the south.

Great bloody mary and unsweet tea! It was that kind of day! the seafood bisque and the tomato basil bisque on a 57 degree day in beaufort sc was off the chart. it was too cold outside and Wren came to the rescue for two ladies at lunch. The bartender was sooo gracious -- we had business to talk over... More

We arrived very early and sat at the bar to pass some time. The bartender, Megan, was delightful and made us a tasty cocktail. Then we had a delicious dinner served by Michelle, who was very knowledgeable of the menu and what to recommend. We decided on sharing small plates and it was all perfect. A perfect spot for a...

Dinner - $$$ - little expensive. Limited wine by the glass. Shrimp Diablo - Excellent. Salads were excellent, but a side salad at a more reasonable price would be nice. Bread was good - herb butter was nice but an olive oil dip would be equally good. Service A+ - Adam was attentive, gracious and just a nice guy. Noise... More

A jewel of a find in downtown Beaufort. The outside of the restaurant is very deceiving. But, once inside, the atmosphere is very inviting. Well appointed lunch menu with very fresh ingredients!! The Chicken Salad was awesome. A MUST FIND for lunch - or dinner - while in Beaufort.

Normally we love Wren - this was not a good lunch day. We waited over 50 minutes for our lunch (sandwiches - nothing difficult). Chicken Salad is very good - almost worth the wait. Servers seemed a little over whelmed but there were many empty tables. Dinner has always been good so maybe that is their strong point, WIll go... More

While shopping in Beaufort my wife ask the clerk where would be a good place to eat lunch and without hesitation she said, "Wren Bistro, like the bird", so we went around the corner and tried it and are we glad we did! I am not sure where some of the negative comments came from on previous reviews but our... More
