Signature Princess dish was good. A little bit bland , but bountiful and fresh. $32. Wine pour was very scant. Would have been a much better experience if our waiter, Jared, had been more attentive and engaged. Glad we tried it but we probably won’t...return.More

My wife and I had not been to Circles in at least a year. We were impressed with the menu and with the fact that our waiter, Jarrett, was able to be more specific when we asked about specific items on the menu. His service...excellent and made our lunch a memorable one. Thank you Jarrett.More

Covid entry I guess. Check in outside and enter thru the rear outside dining area. We ate inside and were seated quickly. If you like sweet tea, theirs is the best. I got grilled grouper and really enjoyed it. Their grouper has always been great....My husband got salmon grilled and he enjoyed it. Thanks to a efficient staff the service was excellent. Thanks Especially to Jarrett. We were using older gift certificates this time but we'll return again, I'm sure. I kinda hope the old way of entering is brought back though.More

We are visiting family in May and June 2021. I had the triple tail special and it was fantastic!! My husband had the seafood pasta and absolutely loved it!! The frozen drinks are 24 oz for $13 and are amazing! A great price for the...size of the drink! We have eaten at Circles 3 times while visiting family in Apollo Beach and each time the service and food has been impeccable!! My nephew lives in Apollo beach and he and his family eat here several times a week and have never been disappoint! Would highly recommend this restaurant.More
