Stopped on our way home from Hilton Head Island. Had not been to Beaufort and thought it would be a nice spot to get some lunch. It was very good. Great ambiance and food.

We decided to go back as we have not been for awhile, no reason why, just had not been. The menu is limited, but the food is great. Wait staff is friendly and helpful with recommendations.

Nice little place with a relaxing decor and nice blend of history and contemporary design. The food was quite good - we really enjoyed the crab fritter appetizer, and the kale salad was delicious. Entrees were good, with the highlight being the featured pasta with...More

Thank you for your interest. We are closed both Sunday and Monday. If you are still in town a walk from your hotel would be a few blocks. Hope to see you soon!

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!
