Nothing says more about you than the company you keep. When it comes to St. Pete’s Dancing Marlin, our customers speak on our behalf. Here is a series of comments either submitted to us or taken from review websites over the past couple of years. These are not “professional” cuisine critics working for newspapers, radio and TV stations. The comments here are from everyday people -- just like you and me -- looking for what Pete Zotos refers to as “big, honest food” served by friendly folks in a relaxed atmosphere.

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.”

My Absolute Favorite Place in the Entire Metroplex!

“My absolute favorite place in the entire metroplex. I have been going there since it opened, and have eaten nearly everything on the menu. The food is excellent – as is the service. Pete makes sure everyone feels like his place is their own personal neighborhood restaurant. My favorite is the pasta, with the Diablo sauce, with the tuna coming in a close second. It is a good value,  top to bottom.”
