“Wonderful Surprise”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We recently stopped just off I-75 in Apollo Beach and discovered Circles Land End. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the pleasant setting for this off the beaten path (for us) restaurant. We had a drink at the Tikki bar by the water. It was lively and fun, attracting a diverse crowd. Indoors for dinner we had a rather quiet waitperson although there was another waiter who was much more outgoing and celebratory. We had two nicely prepared fish dinners. The swordfish with two generous scallops was especially good, and the salads were crisp and fresh. The ambiance was pleasant and we especially appreciated the black and white photos that decorated the walls. We'd stop here again if in the area.

“good food, pricey”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Have been several times to Circles. nice view from the "veranda" but a little noisy when the band is engaged. The meals are pricey but I can make a meal of the appetizers.

“Solid choice on the water”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Don't be fooled by the fact that the outside of this restaurant looks like someone took over an old city water department building. Inside is cozy and it sports an excellent view of the water. The menu is upscale with very competitive pricing. For casual dining opt for the outside seating or the bar located closest to the water. Service was also very thoughtful and attentive.

“Great find!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

My husband and I were in Apollo Beach for something different and were starving. We looked on this website for suggestions and found Circles. We took a chance and went. I will definitely come back at sunset! We both had the Grouper sandwich. I am not a "fish" fan, but boy was it good. The service was great and our waiter was attentive, bringing refills without us having to ask. We will come back again for sunset! PS - have the dessert, the Key Lime Pie was delicious.

“Great outdoor bar area and view”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We live in Apollo Beach and this is the only consistent restaurant in the area. They have something for everyone and the Lobster Bisque is to die for. The service is fine, not excellent. Can be inconsistent, but the food is always excellent. We love the love music near the outside tiki bar. we sit outside the restaurant and enjoy the music.

We had our rehearsal dinner here too. The have an outside party area with a fire place that is really cool too.
