The Best Pizza I’ve Ever Had!

“Everything exceeded my expectations here. I ordered a clam, artichoke and goat cheese pizza and it was honest to god the best pizza I’ve ever had. The gluten free crust was a nice addition as well. Pete had some great stories and a quirky unique humor about him that just makes this cozy business even more valuable to the Deep Ellum community! Thanks Pete and team!”

This Is A No Brainer!

This is a no brainer. Pete serves up a great menu with variety to the point you could have a different meal every day out of the week. The atmosphere is visual but cozy and quite entertaining. You never know who you’ll run into at St. Pete’s. Most of the time Pete himself. Great place to have a cocktail and the pasta and calamari are awesome.

Loved the Place!!!

“Loved the place, the decor is fantastic. And the food was like home cooked and very good. Service was awesome, drinks stayed full and had to get a To-Go bag, there was so much food! Will definitely come back when I travel through here again.”

~ Doug Tyler

Best Neighborhood Restaurant in Deep Ellum!!!

St. Pete’s Dancing Marlin has been selected as “Best Neighborhood Restaurant” in Deep Ellum by D Magazine.

Quoting Nancy Nichols of D Magazine, “If you haven’t had the pleasure of shooting the breeze with easygoing owner Pete Zotos, then make a date. Plan to come on a Monday or Tuesday night, when Zotos covers the shifts so his staff can take a break. His is the longest running independent spot in Deep Ellum (open since 1994) for a reason. “This place is like a comfortable old couch,” he says. “It’s not about selling you an expensive drink – it’s about the waitresses remembering you don’t like mayonnaise.”

Thank you D Magazine! We’re truly humbled.
