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!

Wren is my not so guilty pleasure for lunch! The southwestern chicken salad is to die for! If I'm not in the mood for chicken I switch it up and sub the chicken for shrimp and man oh man is it delicious! Always super fresh and ready to go when I call in my order to go ahead of time!... More

We enjoyed our dinner but felt it wasn't up to the prices charged. My husband's steak with chewy and overdone. My salmon was good, but so is salmon at lots of other places that do a better job. I would probably go there again, but not until I've checked menus of other nearby places to see if something else looks... More

I have been here repeatedly - the food and vibe are excellent, and it is almost always busy. We like the parchment wrapped table lights, and the cosy decor - (ropes and brick and rattan). Their bread with the herbed butter is a treat. I have been here as a twosome, with family and with 'the girls'. It obviously is... More

The chicken salad plate is AMAZING! Fresh, fresh ingredients, just the right amount of everything. Perfect lunch meal. All white meat chicken by the way, just in case you were wondering. The lemonade is one of the best ever tasted to date. Our waitress was a hoot and a holler! We renamed her "Captain" Smarty Pants (you know what your... More

Our yacht club travels to Beaufort each year to attend the local shrimp festival. It's not always easy to find a restaurant with both the desire and ability to accommodate a group of 25-35 people. I have eaten lunch at Wren in the past and it has always been great. The atmosphere is understated and classy with neutral tones. After... More

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch with my friend. Great chicken salad plate and we both really enjoyed their mango sweet tea. Super service so we had a delightful lunch. Great food, great service and visiting with an old friend equals a super lunch.

It is located right downtown in Beaufort, just off Bay Street on Carteret and across the street from Backwater Grill. Ambiance is just OK. My flounder was excellent, lightly fried, over rice and complemented by broccoli and a corn relish. My wife's fried chicken was OK but not I guess what we expect from a southern place serving southern fried... More

Delicious food and great service. We had the pommes frites, fried chicken and the mahi. Everything was perfect and so tasty. Will definitely be back in the future and highly reccommend to others!

Good setting and atmosphere, decent service. However, the food was ok at best. Calamari was heavy and deep fried and plain and I would avoid the pasta dishes. On the other hand, one of our party raved about her steak and the salads were good. Overall our table agreed that the light foods (salads and grilled fish) were best. I... More

Finally...after living in Beaufort for almost three years, I have tried Wren! My girl friends and I went for dinner after The Chocolate Tree's All You Can Eat night. The atmosphere was very relaxing with a modern flair look. I loved, loved the atmosphere. It was definitely a nice place for a romantic date with the hubs or friends. I... More
