We went to Circles for lunch and had their fish sandwich and fries. The serving of fish was extremely generous, and the breading was thin and crispy. It was one of the best fried fish sandwiches I've ever eaten.

We were a group of eight and waited well over an hour for a table. The place was packed. So we went to one of the outside bars to order rinks. There was only 1 bartender and one computer system for the bartender and all the waitresses. So even if you could get your order taken, they would have to wait in a line of servers to enter it into the computer to be processed so you could pay your tab. This was a very poorly designed system. Its bad customer service, and in the long run will lessen the profit margin of the business.

After we were finally at a table and our server came over, she took a drink order. As the bar service was slow, I intentionally timed how long our drinks would be as we joked it would take forever. Eighteen minutes later, drinks arrived. This included several glasses of water and a cup of tea. Certainly those should have been brought out sooner.

The menu at Circles if very large and the food as usually was good. This was not our first visit and will probably not be our last. However, they must improve on the speed and quality of service or it will deter us from future visits.

We had lunch here when we came up to see manatees at the power plant viewing center. The food was good, the location was nice (right on a marina, looking over the bay). Great choice for lunch if you're in the area.

My relatives who live in Tampa took us to this restaurant. The food was delicious and the
view was nice & relaxing, Two of us had the special seafood pasta dish, and it had
tons of scallops and shrimp in it, making the two who didn't order it, wish that
they had. All the dishes were great, and the portions were big. The only "but" was that
our server wore waaaaay too much perfume, and it was a little overwhelming.
