Great food and atmosphere. Server was amazing. Exactly the experience we wanted to celebrate our anniversary. Plus learned about happy hour specials so 843 becomes our go-to place.

The restaurant is clearly catered to locals. We were treated differently than the people who go obviously go there every week. One young couple was even asked to get up and move to accommodate a regular couple who came in and wanted their usual table. I had the special, which was crab stuffed salmon and risotto. It was delicious. However, my husband's steak was partially burndt and did not have a lot of flavor. When you're paying $35 for a steak, you expect more. Also, we used a Groupon, and they automatically charged us a 20% tip. Im not sure if they always do that for a party of two, or if it was just because we used a Groupon. But it seemed like they didn't trust us to leave a tip, since we were young and were using a Groupon. We usually tip 25%, but we did not leave anything additional, since the automatic gratuity was so odd to us. We do not recommend this place and would not go back. It's too expensive for the quality and service.

Yearly visitor to HHI AND Living Social had a coupon for a half priced meal. Thought we would take advantage and try something new. Walked in, very nice southern coastal ambience, but canned 60's music did not fit the theme. Male waiter did not impress. Initially brought the wrong drink, and three times brought out crab cake appetizers that we did not order. Third time we kept them, but never got the truffle fries we ordered. We did get charged for the crab cakes that were excellent. Food was pricey, and although good, not worth what we paid for it. Drop your prices by at least a third, and we may return - otherwise Hilton Head has far better dining options for the ambience, price and value.

Absolutely outstanding creative dishes! Appetizers: The roasted beet salad with pecan-encrusted goat cheese was incredible and the truffle fries were addictive. We ordered the pasta bolognese and beef short ribs and they were perfection! Have already recommended 843 to several people.

It's typically a great evening at 843. But this evening nothing really clicked. The meatball appetizer was good, but cheesy enough that our silver was caked with the sauce. The waiter just laid the dirty saucy silver on the lovely white tablecloth. Why not just bring fresh? We had to use a fine linen napkin to scrape the cheese off for the rest of the meal. Yes we ordered braised ribs and curry which can sometimes be overly sauced and these were but no nuance in the flavor. Cooked well but sloppy to eat. Waiter was bowled over with too many tables and insinuated they were also bartending and doing some cooking as well so service was just ok for a nice restaurant. An average and less impressive evening compared to previous trips to 843.

My husband and I had dinner at 843 for the first time tonight on the recommendation of a friend who lives on HHI. What a lovely spot this is! It's small, intimate and cozy, relaxed with great background music that doesn't interfere with conversation, and the food was fabulous!

With a nice wine list, a full bar (I had a great martini!), and great choices in appetizers, the entrees are nicely varied as well. I had the scallops which pretty much melted in my mouth, and hubby had the Moroccan brick chicken, which he loved.

Our server was well informed and extremely pleasant, attentive and friendly but not intrusive.

With no room for dessert we left full, happy, and delighted to have found another "must do" for our trips to the island.

Definitely make reservations because it is small, and I'd recommend for any kind of occasion or just an extremely pleasant evening out with spouse or friends. I think, because of the menu though, that I'd probably not take a large group with small children there as it's fairly pricey (but definitely worth it!!)
and probably not the best choice for little ones.

Excellent service, wonderful & creative food without being weird. Quiet atmosphere where you can actually have a conversation without shouting. It's one of our favorites
