We all thoroughly enjoyed this lovely spot in downtown Beaufort. The staff, everyone of them, are courteous and knowledgeable. The food is superb. The twisted Caesar is a classic, the best bisque in town and you will never go wrong with the southern tier sandwich. That covers lunch. Dinner is exceptional and they always have fresh fish. The flounder here... More

Cranberry Chicken Salad ~ TO DIE FOR! The tea is not your typical tea, it is flavored. I am not typically a fan of flavored tea, except here. I have tried other food, but always go back to the Chicken Salad. Food is fabulous, location great and service to top notch!

I always feel comfortable in eating alone here! You can sit at the bar and have a great meal/drink/conversation. Bar staff is always extremely friendly and fast. Make sure you try the fried green tomato!

From the Peach Bellinis to the Turtle Pie with the famous Wren Chicken salad in between my friend and I had a delicious lunch! My friend and I may live next door to each other but getting together to visit does not happen that often! So we made a date for the week after her birthday and celebrated at Wren.... More

while its been a while since we were there, it'll be even longer before we return. We were a group of family and friends gathering for a weekend of wedding planning. To this day, we're still not sure which seafood it was that made almost all in the party very very sick.... though I suspect the mussels. Yours truly was... More

Great Mango Ice Tea, good service, and nice lunch venue. Salad was very fresh with varied ingredients. You could easily hear to have a conversation.

Their burger night is great but the rest of the menu is disappointing. Their pasta was flavorless and as was the Portobello mushroom sandwich. It seems they are only good for their burgers and brew.

I have eaten here twice while in Beaufort and both times the service and food were excellent. We had the burgers and fries . Probably one of the best burgers I have ever had. The second time my husband and I shared so that we could order dessert. The coconut cake and lemon dessert are so delicious. The atmosphere is... More

Wren is the best restaurant in Beaufort!!! The atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. The staff is friendly, helpful, and knowledgable, especially Tiffany!!! The owner/operator/chef Brad and Annie are creative, passionate and talented at what they do. The drinks are always made well and delicious and the wine list is spectacular. Some of our faves on the menu include the chicken... More

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!
