“Eat outside!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Had dinner here with my husband in the "pre-season", so it was not crowded at all and we were able to sit immediately on their lovely patio. Try not to even look inside if possible or you might be dissuaded from eating there (it seems like they are trying to look like a dive bar, which is confusing to me for so many reasons).

The food was terrific, especially my Asian beef tacos -- huge portion for an appetizer and definitely enough as my main, though we did start with the beach fries (also very good), so that helped. Service was really friendly and attentive. Over all great value.

“Noisy & Understaffed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

We stopped in to Circle to have a bite to eat. We were seated immediately in a booth near the kitchen and a server said she would be right with us yet an order from the bar took 40 minuets to arrive at our table. It's not that we were in any hurry yet we were thirsty and a quick delivery from the bar would have made the additional waiting for our food a bit less annoying. On the positive side the food was OK.
