This was our first time at Wren and we were quite impressed. The atmosphere was warm, inviting, casual & a bit rustic. The lighting and decor was contemporary and imaginative. They have a nice menu with small plates, salads & entrees, all reasonably priced. We shared 3 small plates and a salad and were very full when we finished. The... More

We live on our boat and travel many miles every year. Loved Wren!! Food very good -- chicken salad and burger, excellent but wonderful choices we didn't make. You can not go wrong. Great feel in the restaurant and wonderful service. Good wine selection (could be better with good value French and Italian). I'm always advocating 4, 6 and 9... More

We turned up without a booking & were lucky enough to get 2 seats at the bar. Great atmosphere, with high ceilings, and enough drapes to absorb the sound. I love to try out local food, so I selected the Carolina Shrimp n' grits. They were absolutely gorgeous!!! Juicy Carolina shrimps cooked to perfection, served on a bed of grits... More

We dined with friends and had a great evening. Six people, six entrees, and everyone was pleased, which is not easy to do. Service was very good. Well-paced without making us feel rushed. Portion sizes were adequate, and prices were reasonable. Nice wine list as well as a selection of wines by the glass.

Went with friends and 2 ordered off the menu and 2 ordered the specials. All four of us ending up trying each others selection and it was tough to say which one made the better choice. All 4 entrees were delicious.

My husband and I choose this restaurant based on the reviews. We enjoyed our lunch. We had good service. I ordered the fried green tomatoes because so many people raved about them. They were perfectly fried, and beautifully presented. The only draw back was that they were very bland for my taste. The shrimp and gits on the other hand... More

Plenty of ambiance, good service, and to-die-for Shellfish Bisque!!! The fried green tomato appetizer (also in the form or a sandwich) was over the top good. If in town...don't miss it! You won't be sorry.

We walked across from the City Loft Hotel and enjoyed Lunch at the Wren. It has a nice urban atmosphere and we sat at the bar. Mango tea was yummy. the Shellfish bisque and the Tomato bisque were both delicious! So was the Cobb salad and fried green tomato stack. Service was excellent. We would definitely revisit.

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!
