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!

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

One of the many things we look forward to when we visit Beaufort is dinner at the Wren. The brick-warehouse like setting and chic interior finishes (fascinating light fixtures/ natural colored canvas drapes ceiling to the floor) are a visual appetizer. This time we enjoyed Lowcountry shrimp & grits and fish tacos. They were insanely delicious along with their crafted... More

My friend and I came for lunch to celebrate her birthday. We started with a Blood Orange Mimosa (not a bad way to start)! Since my husband was our driver we were able to imbibe responsibly! My friend ordered the ever-popular and oh so good chicken salad. It comes with two multi-grain baguette slices and a fresh fruit salad. I... More

We had a delightful lunch at Wren and regretted our choice for dinner the prior evening as we are sure dinner here would be just as tasty. Our lunch was fresh, attractively presented and delicious. The wines that we had were at just the right temperature and fairly priced with a generous serving. Our waitress made suggestions for late night... More

Walked a few blocks to get away from the crowds at the festival. Good selection for the kids. The chicken salad is great and a reason for repeat visits.

It is a beautiful restaurant with great food and service. They had amazing drinks, including peach ice tea and some of the beat freshly squeezed lemonade I've ever had.

Stopped by for dinner with a party of 7 while in vacation. The staff was very accomodating. Great food! We all had something different and everything was excellent. Great shrimp & grits and mussels but the sauce is the same for both. Excellent steaks, appetizers, and salads too! Top notch wine list which is so refreshing to see and their... More
