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.

We Can’t Wait to Come Back!

This is our first time to St. Pete’s and it won’t be our last! How does a bar/restaurant last 25 years in Dallas? I will tell you how… the owner, Pete is still behind the bar making drinks and fabulous conversation with everyone who walks in and making sure everything is done right! The staff is friendly! The drinks are cold and the food will exceed your expectations! You won’t be disappointed! We can’t wait to come back!

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.

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!”
