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!

My husband and I stopped at this restaurant on our way back to Charleston from Savannah. We both found the decor very pleasing and the atmosphere pleasant. The menu selections were varied and enticing. We both opted for the burger. It was cooked to the temperature we asked for and it was delicious. The fries were thin and crisp and... More

I was here early last year - and was very impressed by the wine list, the good food and the good service. I didn't have time to go back this trip - but next one... I'm here. It's that good.

Although the menu was expansive and atmosphere was both cozy and contemporary, the servers and bar tenders seemed unfriendly. There seemed to be some underlying tension - the blonde bartender was almost rude when we arrived. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, pear salad, pimento cheese and pita along with some vino for a happy hour. We also ordered take-out... More

My huband and I recently ate lunch at Wren. We read the menu posted outside and decided to stop in for a quick lunch. The soups and salads were fantastic. Our server was attentive, but not hovering, and the amount of the servings exceeded our expectations. We will definitely return to Wren when we are back in Beaufort.

Wren's used to be primarily a watering hole with some food as a second thought. It now has a very good menu, friendly, competent service. We were there last night with a group of friends and everyone (8) was very satisfied with their meal. Server was very friendly and accommodating as some of the group straggled in a little late....

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Wren today! The menu is fabulous with many mouth-watering choices. The chicken sandwich and tomato bisque were my choice this afternoon. Being a local and haven eaten here several times, I can say that I have never been disappointed with any of my menu choices. For the price you pay, the food quality and portions... More

Today I attended Wren with some friends and family. Our meals were amazing and we were more than pleased. Our waitress Michelle was very helpful and had great meal suggestions. Overall service was great and so was the food. And also the mango tea is to die for.

Shrimp salad was made similarly to a chicken salad and not exactly what I expected, but the shrimp were fresh and it was tasty. Bread was very good. Service was friendly and competent enough. Sandwich options were plentiful and looked good -- not tremendous creativity here, but I would certainly eat here again, if I were in the area.

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
