Love the feeling when you walk in...rustic meets urban chic. Service was excellent from start to finish. I loved the lobster bisque and my friend equally loved the tomato bisque. I wanted some great Lowcountry comfort food post Hurricane Matthew and was not disappointed with the shrimp and grits. It was amazing! The portion was generous and I could not... More

I looked at the reviews, photos and menu before going to Beaufort and Wren really didn't seem like my kind of place. After a long drive and a few hours at Parris Island, we were hungry and tired and ended up Wren just after the opened for dinner. Service was great, meatloaf was great, mashed potatoes were great, pork chops... 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!
