    Sat on the patio which was very nice and quiet. It was a Sunday night though. We tried the jalapeno margarita and it was tasty with a serious kick! One was enough. The deviled eggs appetizer was excellent, but it only came with 3 halves and it was pricey! They really need to consider offering a bit more as we devoured in less than a minute. My wife and I shared the lowcountry seafood dish and I am glad we did. It was plenty, but I will say it was very very spicy and filling! My wife couldn't eat all of hers because of it. Overall, very good and I would return.

    We were from out of town but had dinner at Eighty3 last year and thoroughly enjoyed the service and meal. Fast forward to this year and the experience did not measure up. The food was overcooked to the point of being dry and the service was incredibly slow...it took nearly (3) hours to finish. After dinner desert and coffee was at least 30 minutes in arrival.

    After 20 minutes we were seated, we asked if we could order some drinks, before that, we got no attention. When somebody came he was in a big hurry, he requested, that we should order everything. No non-alcoholic cocktails available (for a good service it should be very easy to create this with two/three juices, even if it is not on the menue). When our entres came, the appetizer dishes were still on the table and the waitress asked us, if we could help, so we put everything on the next table. next table wasn't cleaned up as well and so we sit next to a big tower of dirty dished. They didn't cleaned it up, until we left the resaturant. Nobody asked us about a new drink. My vegetables includes black burned pieces.

    The service from our waitress was excellent. It was our first time to eighty3 and she went over the menu with us listing her favorites and why along with the most popular dishes. She was very social at the right times and let us eat when the food arrived. The meals were good. The salmon had good flavor but was a little over cooked so a tad bit dry. The Ahi Tuna salad was right on. We started with the queso & rojo salsa, it was tasty and finished with the blueberry bread pudding, yum. The prices were a little steep, however, pretty much in-line with other downtown dining establishments. After dinner we went up to the roof for a few drinks. Great view but the drinks are over-priced.

    It was a first date and I was happy with my pick. Started off with a bottle of wine which the wine list is a little small but has a few good ones on there. We order the oyster ap and it was amazing. Must get. Then I order the 8oz filet with the wedge salad. Omg the filet was so good. My date got the seafood dish not to big a fan. We finished off with the deep fired Oreos. They were amazing as well. Over all great night and ended the evening at the Madison roof top bar. Great dinner.

    We were staying at the Madison so it made sense to eat at this highly rated restaurant. The food was really good. The crab cake may be the best I've had and I've been to the Eastern Shore. The Shrimp and Grits were deconstructed and really tasty. The Shrimp Beignets were both different and excellent. The Gumbo may have been award winning but lacked chunks of seafood, etc. The only issue- albeit a minor one- was the screaming children. Not conducive to an adult night out and this was at 8:15 or so. Still- an enjoyable meal with solid service from Bryan. I would definitely recommend.

    The hostess told us "sit any place"" which started us off noting what once was an elegant restaurant had changed. It seemed they had called in help from other places, as they were all dressed differently. Service was OK. food was good. The next time I am looking for a special dining experience, I will not go to Grill 83.

    Our server was obviously tweaking. I grew up in a halfway house where my parents helped recovering addicts. I can spot it. She was lovely and pleasant but as the night wore on, her ability to function deteriorated. Unusual at this kind of establishment. I hope your company offers help for folks struggling with addiction.

    Came for the grilled oysters which were advertised $1, but only get at the bar, which has very limited seats. Sat at table, and ended up paying $28 for a dozen. Kind of sneaky bait and switch.

    I took my 2 nephews and my son here to celebrate Father's Day. Their aunt and a 2 years old accompanied us. There are no items on the menu for kids but they made a special meal for the 2 years old and served it early. I was very appreciative of that. We each ordered something different and all enjoyed their selections. Our server was excellent. She was very familiar with the menu and made great suggestions to improve the experience. Be prepared to pay a little more than expected.

    We came in for a spur of the moment lunch on Memorial day. We both had been there for dinner many times, this was a first for us for lunch. My spouse had his heart set on the bone in filet which was not in the lunch menu. Fortunately for him, our server spoke to the chef and prepared it special for him for lunch. I also ended up ordering off the lunch menu. It was delightful and we enjoyed a nice bottle of wine with our perfectly cooked steaks. Our server was attentive but not overbearing. We had a lovely time.

    Walked in and were asked by the bartender if we had reservations, then she just pointed at a table instead of actually seating us. We sat down and looked at the one page menu for a solid 20 minutes before our drink order was taken by the bartender(who I think was a manager), even though there were only 3 other tables with people in them. Still didn't see our waitress until she came to refill our water. Food was still tasty, but service was just so slow! I don't know if they were understaffed or just had a new waitress, but I wouldn't quite recommend this place unless you have the time to wait.

    When we walked into the almost empty restaurant (3 seated tables) for brunch, we were told by all four waitresses that we'll be right with you... About ten minutes later, we were finally seated. The decor is interesting with graffiti paintings on one wall and bright colored paintings of buildings and other things on another. The food was alright. The gumbo wasn't what I'd consider award winning. The breakfast potatoes are delicious. Overall, it wasn't terrible, but I wouldn't go again.

    Dined on 3/30/2014
    The restaurant had the ambiance of fine dining. Valet parking at the door, but once inside it's very small with a limited menu to match. My order was the low country seafood pasta. It was a fairly well portion size but it seemed as if there was no chef in the kitchen. The plate was brought to me messy without the chef flair or stamp of approval. On top of that, the food was very bland. Nothing hit my palette that made me crave for more. 83.....was chopped from my upscale dining list.
