eighty3 Ratings and Reviews
Early dinner with 2 adult children and 2 grandchildren before the symphony. Our server Cat was a delight with good recommendations. Mac & cheese waffle and chicken was a tasty appetizer. We seniors split a Filet and it was sufficient. Shrimp and grits drew raves from a discriminating son. Accommodated a 13 year olds picky tastes with an off the menu request.
The service was excellent, but the food was entirely too spicy. Even my husband who likes spicy food could barely eat his. The waiter was great and noticed that I could not eat mine, so he didn't charge me. If you really enjoy spicy food, you will love this restaurant.
I have had brunh at eighty3 before, but this was my first evening experience. I had fried brussel sprouts and a salad. The brussel sports were delicious. The salad was a little skimpy for the price but their house salad dressing was wonderful. For dessert I had the Crispy Creme Brûlée. It was very crispy and almost too hard to eat. Overall we had a great dining experience and we will be visiting again.
I'll address just the food at this restaurant. The dishes were imaginative, but clearly within the mid-South tradition, and very good. My appetizer was lump crabmeat sandwiched between two thin fried green tomato slices. I then had a double pork chop which had first been slathered with honey and then fried with some breading. It was topped with a mushroom/sausage gravy and accompanied by dirty rice. The pork was cooked perfectly and still remained moist. The flavor was wonderful.
While I usually avoid fried foods, these dishes did not seem greasy at all. Yes, I knew that my meal was probably inadvisable on a cholesterol scale, but it was so good!
The great surprise was the list of wines by the glass, which included offerings I've not seen elsewhere. I chose a red from Carcassonne, the acidic nature of which was perfect with the fried pork chop.
Had a reservation and arrived on time, was seated after a little wait, no acknowledgement by waiter for 5-10 minutes, took drink order which took 20 minutes to be delivered, appetizer of cornbread which was ordered w drinks took 30 minutes to be delivered, entrees were delivered 5 minutes after appetizer. One of the Drinks Tasted terrible, waiter didn’t notice that it was not consumed, waiter said the drinks would be taken care of due to bad service (they weren’t), food was meh, we were in for parents weekend and will not be back.
This dining experience was simply wonderful the hostess/waiter was so pleasant and informative. While dealing the menu we were able to select items that were available for dinner service. I enjoyed hummus, deep fried cauliflower, deep fried jalapeños and fire grilled Cajun chicken wings. I'd recommend this restaurant to any of my friends.
We were so excited about this place! We came for the Bruno Mars concert. The sweet waiter was practically serving every single table alone. We ordered a vodka/cranberry and 45 min later he said they were out of cranberry. Then we ordered a vodka/soda & ended up going to the bar and getting it ourselves. At least 1 other table walked out after 30+ min of waiting for their food. The bartender was completely frazzled. We waited 2 hours for our check then finally went to the bar to see if that would at least get us a drink while we waited. The bartender ignored us completely. I ended up walking up to the waiter, handing him my card & waiting for him to run it right then & there. He did. We weren't offered any concession for our wait or experience. The food was really delicious but unless the restaurant is properly staffed - what's the point? We never saw a manager either. There was a girl who was helping the waiter but she was complaining to the other patrons that she was supposed to go to the Bruno Mars concert but was called in to work, after already working in the morning. She was running food and taking drink orders for other tables and even delivered our food. We ordered the wedge and it came without blue cheese. We had to ask for blue cheese. Overall, so disappointing.
I usually love dining at Eighty3. I will start off by saying that the food is always good. My husband and I chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and we were excited. We got there and a gentleman took our order. We ordered our appetizer and main course at the same time, no problem. We waited and waited on our appetizer and it did not come...mind you there was only 2 other tables being served. We look up and our waiter is the bartender as well. We are still waiting on our appetizer. Our main course shows up and still no appetizor so I say don't worry about it. Not happy. Also the restaurant has a gnat problem. My mom and sister have been to his restaurant and they have said the same thing. Again, the food is always good but it seems as if the customer service and the ambiance has fallen off.
We didn't even stay to order, so can't comment on the food. The table behind us was told that they were out of a few of their entrees, so we left. But the place has NO atmosphere. It's like eating in an airport. The rooftop bar is a great spot with a good bartender.
Excellent menu options. Great cocktail selection. Loved the shrimp tempura app. The mac and cheese chicken waffle is quite possibly the most unique flavor combination I've ever experienced but easily won our table's taste test!
Make sure you ask to be seated in the section of Kasey - with a K. The entertainment alone will make the ticket price a value!
It is a very nice place, decor and seating. Staff were attentive and helpful. The wine list is good. My only negative was the special, rainbow trout, was a little dry and under seasoned. My guest also had the special and felt his was under seasoned as well.
Service was subpar for a supposedly fancy restaurant. Our waiter acted as if he was so busy to attend to us even though the restaurant had only about 15 guests seated. He acted as if getting me a glass of wine was too much trouble. Our hostess had to take our order and bring us our food. The gumbo I did not care for but my steak was cooked to perfection. My husband had the mac and cheese waffle and the seafood pasta, both cooked very well. Very good portions sizes for what we paid. The hostess was great, she was very attentive. Not sure if we will try this place again.
We tried to cancel our reservation via Open Table and were told to call the restaurant. We called, the person could not find our reservation. Then said he was going to another computer and immediately put us on hold. He never came back, and he obviously never cancelled the reservation.
1. Restaurant did not acknowledge reservations from Open Table. No big deal because the restaurant was empty and we were seated promptly.
2. Service was very slow. The servers had to go back to the kitchen to help the cooks because food was not being prepared. The other tables around us were experiencing the same issue.
3. Worst part of visit was finding a big nasty hair in our food towards the bottom of the bowl. Needless to say we completely lost our appetite after that. The servers were understanding about the issue and removed the food from our bill.
After this experience, I don't think we will be returning.
I really had a good experience- The host was sweet and our server was very informative about the menu and he let us know upfront which dishes were unavailable so that we could expedite our order since we had to go to a show at the Orpheum theater- I ordered the mixed green salad and add it on grill chicken everything was tasty fresh the vinaigrette dressing on the salad was very tasty and the chicken was well season
Amazing food...but it would have been nice to eat it all together. We were there for Mother's Day with a moderate crowd but nothing hectic. Special mom's day menu was amazing...too bad the service was not. Brought our to go order, but not one guest's lunch (she admitted to forgetting about it). Waited 15 minutes for that. My Mom's quiche was very cold and when we brought it to the server's attention she said it was supposed to be served that way. INteresting. I will give it another shot because of the quality of food that did come out on time.
I took my mother for Mother's Day it was our first time. Local art is nice to look at - very eclectic. IT is small so you feel like you are eating with everyone in the restaurant but the service was fine. It was not crowded when we reserved so it was almost too much attention but it was good. The only thing I didn't like was that there is no bread or nothing while you wait for your meal but the meals are so filling I see why. They are serving upscale Southern-Style dishes. We shared Shrimp and grits and the Porkchop... the PC was incredible!!! I didn't need salt or pepper on anything both were seasoned to perfection. Would go again...
