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!

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

All our experiences in Beaufort were great, this is a fabulous little town with so much to choose from. We liked Wren Bistro because it offered a quieter atmosphere to some other places in town and we were in the mood for that. The décor is modern yet restful and the staff were very friendly, though this seems to be a given in the South. We have got to used to rude Northerners since we have lived in NY. The menu offered a variety of good choices, most of which had a little bit of a twist to them. I absolutely loved my Shrimp and Grits and could have bathed in the sauce that was on it. My husband had a great fish dish too. Service was well paced and the drinks were good. Overall an excellent experience and we will return.

“Our favorite "go to" restaurant in Beaufort”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Wren is the place to go to for a delicious dinner with a casual, friendly atmosphere and if you don't know anyone when you get there, you will before you leave. We have never had a bad meal nor bad service and have been going there since it was in its original location and just moved down the street with them. We love it!!!!

“Exelent.”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Wren is situated on Carteret Street just of Bay Street. This is one that you could overlook as it's not on Bay street where most people stroll up and down. This restaurant is definitely worth looking for.
this was the best meal that we had while staying in Beaufort, it is a bit more expensive than the. Q cafe and Plums and does not have the same outlook but is definitely worth visiting for the standard of the food. Seek it out!

“Wren Love”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This was a special spot for us, as the name reminded us of a dear friend. We had one of the very best meals ever! The atmosphere was soft and intimate. The food was super - Grilled salmon with mango salsa, perfectly cooked collard greens, and a salad that was fresh and flavorful. All of it beautifully presented. Our waitress was sweet and patient as we lingered for a bit taking our time. We will eat hear again and again on future trips. It was charming, fresh and delicious! I would recommend early in the week as the tables are a bit close together and the weekends are probably not as quiet. We were there on a Tuesday night and no one was seated right next to us. Enjoy!
