We love this restaurant, there ice tea is the best we have ever had. The food is always good and consistent, we hope they never change the menu! I would recommend the southern tier and the chicken salad both are excellent.

Started with coconut shrimp, was the best I have ever tasted. Fresh Mango slaw almost outshined the perfectly cooked shrimp. Mahi and shrimp was perfection. All was enjoyed with a great bottle of wine. Paula, our waitress, had a great attitude, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful!

Thank you for your interest. We are closed both Sunday and Monday. If you are still in town a walk from your hotel would be a few blocks. Hope to see you soon!

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!
