Pros - 1. The Atmosphere, really nice view of bay and a small marina.
2. Large portions if that is something you care about
3. Fast delivery of order - could be a negative
4. Waitstaff was friendly but there were two working our area was confusing.

CONS. 1. For the money about $24 an entree the food just seem to be thrown together . My Stuffed grouper had very little grouper and a ton of canned crab-meat.

2. The drinks were weak and very expensive.
3. Our appetizer was out 4 minutes after ordering and even before we had any bread.

With tip our bill was $100 that was 3 cocktails, 1 appetizer and 2 seafood dishes.

The only reason I would go back would be to sit at the outside bar for a few drinks.

Good place to take in the view and have a drink. Food is over priced and over presented. Staff is generally friendly but turnover appears to be an issue. Decor is actually nicely done. And for Friday's and Saturdays, it's a good spot for groups of friends or mingle among the boaters who might turn up and local people blowing off steam.

The outdoor bartenders are terrible. It takes forever to get service at the tiki bar. And when you do get service the attitudes are awful. I have waited for service for up to twenty minutes to even be acknowledged. I have even had the MOD look over at our table and he has not sent over any one. And the meetings that you are having in the mornings are a waste because as soon as the trainer leaves the staff setting up the outdoor patio are bad mouthing the meetings for the whole dock to hear. Dropping the f bomb on how they aren't f@$king doing anything the trainer says. Time to replace some of your crew with staff that actually wants to be there. Ruby should be the first to go. And that's from a lot of my friends that come here. This has been like this for months. If it was a one time thing I wouldn't be writing this review.

My husband and I ate at Circles last night for our anniversary dinner. The location was perfect, the view was amazing, and since we sat on the patio, the atmosphere right beside the water was exquisite. I ordered the Shrimp Diane, which came with shrimp in a spicy Cajun cream sauce, served over pasta. I am quite accustomed to being under the impression of receiving a small portion of food, at an upper scale restaurant that has prices higher than Applebees. When I received my pasta I was completely shocked to see the massive, colossal sized shrimp throughout the dish. There was a very decent amount and possibly more than 15. The only problem that I had with the dish was that there was a lot of sauce, however I used this to my advantage upon returning home. I was able to add more pasta to the dish and have a whole new dish because there was still a significant amount of shrimp. Anyway, the service was excellent; we had a middle-aged blonde waitress with chin-length hair and she was amazing. We also had our two-year-old with us who thoroughly enjoyed the freshly battered and cooked chicken tenders and fries. My husband had the lemon-pepper chicken in which he devoured. Lastly, which should have been firstly, we started off with the fried calamari. It was excellently battered and cooked, I would just prefer it to be more salty, that is a personal preference however. We really loved this place and cannot wait to go back soon to enjoy more great food and even head over to their tiki bar!

Everyone was very personable the moment we arrived. Chef Chris cooked us an amazing and memorable dinner. Not only the food but the comfortable, casual ambiance was perfect. Thanks Victor!

I experienced one of the worst dining experiences here. I ordered the filet. I received a butterflied steak. When I pointed this out to our server he told me that was what I ordered and proceeded to argue with me. When he finally agreed to take the steak back, he simply forked the steak from my plate with a huff. He left my plate of vegetables and potato to get cold until he returned with the proper filet 20 minutes later. No apology. Then forked it back onto my plate

Thank you for the detailed review from your dining experience at Circles. We take our guest feedback seriously and use it to improve the services and amenities we offer. We are looking into this issue as this is not the service we condone. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the inconsistencies in service. Our staff is committed to providing genuine and friendly service to our guests. Sincerely, Vic

Was once great, best around BUT... My wife and son took me to my favorite resturant for my birthday dinner at Circles. What a difference a month makes, new menu, items changed, items removed, items added. One item taken off the menu was honey mustard salmon, the lemon herb chicken changed from a chicken breast to chicken chunks and pasta in the place of rice and the shrimp was omitted. Now the favorite of mine, the shrimp lugunni Alfredo, changed to a penne pasta, smaller serving size and less shrimp per serving. All the changes alone to turn us away from one of our favorite places to dine. For 4 of us to dine it was $150.00 with tip. Prices are higher with less quality/quantity. We ordered Ceasars salads, but never received them but also weren't charged, so didn't complain. Our waiter had the personality of a slug, no smiles, no charisma. My son told him it was my birthday hoping to embarrass me with some singing or something, never happened, waiter just blew his request off. We won't be returning to Circles! Unfortunate.

On Oct 13, 2015 we met 2 other couples for lunch at Circles Waterfront Restaurant. I had a French Dip sandwich. I asked if the beef was tender and he said yes. The prime beef cut was horrible not thinly cut just chunks of fat and meat.
