If you're looking for quick with a lot of ambiance, then don't go here. All the food is good but the service is slow and the ambiance is "old small town bar". A lot of locals love the Circle W, but I usually go elsewhere.

They are the best onion rings EVER and as ole as I am, I've had some, but not like these...The breading was awesome and the texture was to die for. They use the sweetest onions I have tasted.

Four of us ate dinner here last night. First, ⅔ of the building is a bar and the back ⅓ is a restaurant. When we walked in there was nobody in the restaurant, but we continued on anyway. The place is rather outdated and both the tables and the carpet should have been replaced years ago. The floor was very... More

We have been here a few times now. The catfish was good. The bd thing is they always seem to be out of something when we order. And the potatoe that my husband had seem as it was cooked too long or sat ...due to the hardness of it. The inside is okay. You can sit back have a drink... More

Service and food were ok. If you are looking for some place different to eat in the big town of Giddings then you should stop in. Had the fried catfish and wife had the veal parm. Cost was around $20. Restaurant is attached to bar so there is a lot of smoke smell in the dining room. Very dated restaurant,... More

I think this restaurant has very friendly staff. The menu is pretty good, and their hamburgers are good.

Its a bar and a restaurant that still allows smoking. Most of the time u wait for your food atleast an hour. If you can bare all of that the fried catfish is superb!

Let me start off by saying that the wait staff was incredible. Friendly and very competent. Some of the worst food I have ever eaten in my life . My apologies to the people who own this place , but the food is disgusting.

I love that you can still get homemade onion rings here! Not too many places do that anymore. Order the hamburger and onion rings for a great lunch or dinner. I highly recommend this place.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way home to Houston from Austin. This is most definitely a local bar and western steakhouse. Atmosphere is rustic country western. Seating was open so we sat ourselves. The waitress was friendly and we enjoyed our meal. We have this on our list to come back to and may even try the evening... More
