    Great area, amazing food, adorable interior! Wren has all of the charm that one would expect from a small coastal town. I love that it was centered in the middle of town with great walkability to shops and art studios.

    Wren NEVER disappoints! My husband and I always enjoy seats at the bar for lunch and dinner! Ben and Audrey always make us feel at home and the food is always fresh, delicious and on point! The only drawback is that they are not open every day of the week! Fantastic Bistro!!!

    This was our second visit to Wren and it was every bit as great as we remembered. Everything from the pimento cheese appetizer (with veggies instead of toast points for the gluten free members of our party) to the Sam’s pasta/flounder/GF pecan crusted chicken was exceptional. But the coconut cake and flourless chocolate cake ended the meal on the perfect note. A fantastic evening all around. We’ll be back.

    I got the Snapper and it was incredible (my other favorite on the menu is the Southern Salad with a protein). My boyfriend got the Pecan Chicken and he enjoyed his as well. We sat at the bar and had lovely service, great cocktails, and enjoyed a very cozy atmosphere. This is definitely one of my favorite spots in Beaufort.

    We sat at a high top table in the bar. We were well attended to. Our server was friendly, fun and very helpful. I am gluten free and dairy free and she was very willing to help me choose and then substitute so that my meal was appropriate. It was hot and delicious. My husband enjoyed his meal as did our friends.

    Service was very slow, not typical of Wren. Wrong drink brought out first but then waitress brought correct one 10 minutes later. We were too hungry to wait 20 minutes to order.

    Lily was our server and was excellent. There were 10 of us, and she was very attentive to everyone’s requests. We went for hamburger night which is on Thursdays. Hamburger was one of the best I have had. I would suggest, however, that they switch the shoestring french fries to something that will hold their heat a little longer. It is difficult to get 10 hamburger orders out and have all of the thin fries stay hot.

    The food at Wren was great! The restaurant was surprisingly cold on the day I went and we were seated in a drafty area. But I'll definitely go back. Maybe on just a warmer day.

    The pasta dishes were served with raw spinach and uncooked cherry tomatoes. The shrimp were undercooked. The salads were good. Drinks were good. The waitress comped the pasta dish and offered a dessert.

    Our server was great, available and attentive without being annoying or rushing our experience. We had the Mahi special, Pork Tenderloin, and Fried Green Tomato app. Overall food was good- I wouldn’t say it was great but was very good. Presentation could use some definite work. We left overall very satisfied with our experience! We will be back during our next Beaufort visit.

    The server was super helpful, nice and attentive. The menu items are unusual and creative, but the combinations are not always successful, so be careful what you order. The atmosphere is mostly nice, but there are a few tables near the rear exit and bathrooms that are very uninviting - sadly we were stuck at one of them - next to what appeared to be a an abandoned dessert counter.
