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.

Great find, we would go again and again!

“Our server was great! Very knowledgeable about beer and made fantastic recommendations. I had the Tuna Steak and Veggies, my husband had the Chicken Fried Steak. Both were really good and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Great find, we would go again and 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.”

~ Kenneth B. Scott

Our “Go-To” Restaurant in Dallas!

“When ever we have friends from out of town we make sure St. Pete’s Dancing Marlin is one of our stops. The food is amazing! A favorite with our guests is the Chicken Fried Steak Fingers! But the Grilled Tuna is my personal favorite! The service is great, the bartenders are fun, and the music from local musicians from around the Dallas area will keep you going back again and again!”

Astounding Service!

I wanted to let you know that I introduced a group of my friends to
St. Pete’s last Saturday night, 9/15/12. Being their first time, I was
eager to see if they would fall for the place the same as I did many
years ago.

All 5 of them were VERY impressed, not only with the atmosphere and
friendliness of the staff, but with the food and drinks.

A special recognition is well earned by Rebecca, who not only took
care of us and made it look effortless, even as we moved to the patio,
but she interacted easily with everyone, making us laugh, and giving
bang-on recommendations for different fare and drinks to try.

We came because of the food. We’ll be coming BACK because of the
service. ~Gordon Sandlin
