As with all diners this one has a massive menu but always enjoy the food and speed of service. Can't really complain about anything here. It's a massive place so you never wait to get a table and the service is always good. A+ for a local diner.

I love a diner for its selection of foods and Circle Diner is always my choice when I'm in Fairfield. The food is fresh and the service is quick. The extensive menu and great prices make me return time and time again.

I have been there in the past and I always remember their breakfast items. They have the best hash browns, along with their bacon and scrambled eggs. My wife had their pancakes and she said they were perfect, fluffy and soft. That is the way pancakes should be made, unfortunately many restaurants have pancakes that are not fluffy or soft....

We eat supper here a lot and once in a while breakfast too. Service is excellent and friendly. The food is very good for diner food. The only thing I would add is to ask questions about your choice of meal because the menu doesn't always include everything, for example, I cannot eat green peppers, but the first time I... More
