Kind of tough to rate this particular one. A good friend is chef there and know he is a fantastic one. My grievance is with the website. My wife and I came for a long weekend and planned for a nice dinner Saturday night, the website indicates that if you have a large party to call for reservations but does... More

This was my first trip to Wren and I will definitely be back! The food is amazing and the vibe is awesome. I loved everything from the exposed rick to the Salmon and risotto. Its great for a date night or a night out with friends.

We visited on a Friday afternoon around 2PM. Sometimes this after the lunch rush time can mean poor service, but the folks at Wren didn't miss a beat. The service was attentive and the food was delivered exactly on time. And wow, was the food ever delicious! Shellfish bisque, Cobb Salad with shrimp, grilled cheese sandwich were all just fabulous!

We love going for lunch. I like the chicken salad plate and my husband likes the low Country Cobb! Enjoy a nice glass of white wine with it!

My wife and I met with friends while traveling through Beaufort. We decided to eat at the Wren after checking to see if we could get a reservation. We were able to get a reservation for 8 PM and decided to wait at the bar. While there we ordered an appetizer of crab cake fritters. The fritters were excellent! Our... More

Went for lunch and the restaurant had been unexpectedly slammed with customers. Even though the wait was relatively long the food was quite good. The atmosphere is very modern and comfortable. I recommend sharing just about any of the meals though - the serving size is BIG!

Everyone's dinner was outstanding! Flounder was exceptional as was the shrimp and grits. One in our party was gluten intolerant and Jeannie, our server, knew the menu well and provided multiple options to offer gluten free. Jeannie along with the great food made our evening very enjoyable.

Nice interior and good service from the start. Decent selection of craft beers. Also a very good selection of US wines (finally! though we didn't try any this time round). Starters were ok (green tomatoes, hummus). Nice mains/entrees (fried flounder on a bed of rice, beans and corn). In the end we had too much food and couldn't finish it,... 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!
