State Route 83 is a north–south state highway in the U.S. state of Ohio. Its southern terminus is near the town of Beverly at State Route 60, and its northern terminus is overlooking Lake Erie at U.S. Route 6 in Avon Lake.
A portion of SR 83 is part of the Morgan County Scenic Byway.
- 1972 – Certified as State Route 83 when this designation replaced that of State Route 76 (which was removed to prevent confusion with Interstate 76 after its completion). At this time, the designation was also routed along a new divided highway south and west of Coshocton.
SR 83 was planned to be relocated in Lorain County, but only two short segments of this relocation were built, at Interstate 90/State Route 2 and at State Route 10, with the rest of the plans abandoned after 1991. The latter segment carries part of SR 83C.
- 1923 – Original route established from Ashtabula to the Pennsylvania state line south of Conneaut.
- 1926 – Rerouted through Kingsville (village east of Ashtabula) along the current State Route 84 alignment.
- 1938 – Rerouted from Ashtabula to Kelloggsville (village south of Conneaut) along previously unnumbered roads; alignment through Kingsville certified as State Route 84.
- 1960 – Route decertified.

Route 83C is an unsigned, ¾-mile route connecting SR 83 with SR 10 in North Ridgeville and Eaton Township. SR 83C runs southwest from SR 83 along Lorain Road and Butternut Ridge Road, then turns northwest, intersecting SR 10 then ending just beyond at Chestnut Ridge Road. The latter road is one of the two constructed segments of the once-proposed relocation of SR 83. The route is marked "To SR 10/I-480/I-80" westbound and "To SR 83" eastbound. (SR 83 as it has remained has not received direct access to SR 10.)
