“Your average pizza joint”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

You're on your family vacation in Avalon and the only thing everyone can agree on is pizza for supper. Circle Pizza is one of the few offerings that will fill your stomach, but don't expect exceptional food. Strictly average and a bit pricey (which I expect and understand with it being located in a seasonal town). It is ok if you are in the area, but not worth going out of your way for.

Circle Pizza has been in Avalon for over 40 years and my family vacations there every year. As with most businesses, we have had good experiences and bad. The good outnumber the bad by a good number and this review reflects just the past few years of 'average'.

“What's Happened to Circle Pizza?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

Got a Circle take-out pizza last night. We've used them on family vacations in Avalon for years, and we did so cause they were a reliably good pizza. Well...no more!
Called it in, came over early to pick it up so it was hot. Noticed they had no warming rack for finished pies, and by the time I got it home a few blocks away it was stone cold. And like others said, with a slick of oil floating in the middle of it. It also had a few token pepperonis on it. All in all, the worst take-out pizza I've had in years. We tried microwaving it and blotting up the oil, but I was embarrassed to serve it to my family in from Seattle.
So, lesson learned and a cautionary tale for all of you on the island.
Goodbye Circle! We'll go Concord, Poppies, maybe even Stone Harbor Mack's next time.

“Worse over priced pizza”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

I've been ordering from Circle for over 20 years. The last 2 years the pizza has been HORRIBLE. Delivered the wrong order, sent new order which was stone cold. Pizza arrived with puddle of grease in the middle, in edible. Went to order 1 large pie & 1 order of fries...$35.00. Cancelled my order.

“Excellent pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

The pizza is great. You can negotiate their prices down for whole late night pizzas, which prices increase after the bars close. Seriously, I witnessed prices go from $20 per pizza to $22 per pizza. Is the person selling whole pies to those in line advantage of drunks, you be the judge. In any event, the pizza is great and worth waiting in line for.

“Average pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

We stopped here for pizza on our bikes...husband is a "pizza connoisseur"so he wanted to try it.
It was disappointing..crust was not crispy and not too much depth of flavor in the sauce. Might come again to give it another try, since it is one of only a few pizza places in Avalon.
