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!

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

All our experiences in Beaufort were great, this is a fabulous little town with so much to choose from. We liked Wren Bistro because it offered a quieter atmosphere to some other places in town and we were in the mood for that. The décor is modern yet restful and the staff were very friendly, though this seems to be... More

Wren is the place to go to for a delicious dinner with a casual, friendly atmosphere and if you don't know anyone when you get there, you will before you leave. We have never had a bad meal nor bad service and have been going there since it was in its original location and just moved down the street with... More

This was a special spot for us, as the name reminded us of a dear friend. We had one of the very best meals ever! The atmosphere was soft and intimate. The food was super - Grilled salmon with mango salsa, perfectly cooked collard greens, and a salad that was fresh and flavorful. All of it beautifully presented. Our waitress... More

We have visited all the restaurants in Beaufort and this is becoming our favorite...we had shrimp fra diavolo, mahi mahi and egg plant parm....all outstanding....more than outstanding...we'd go back tonight if we could..excellent service...only one drawback..a lot of their seating is very close to other diners and you can hear all their conversations...still not enough to hurt the meal...
