Regular Hours

General Info:
St. Pete's Dancing Marlin is a Dallas landmark. Walk inside and feel the sun shine across hardwood floors and vintage memorabilia. A multitude of swordfish and other creatures of the deep adorn the walls. Large enough to accommodate 200, St. Pete's is also warm, comfortable, intimate and chock full of atmosphere. It's a classic bar in a classic location -- Dallas' historic Deep Ellum on the edge of downtown. The menu has what founder Pete Zotos calls ""honest food"": deliciously juicy burgers served with heaping fries, fresh, crisp salads and full seafood and pasta entrees with plenty to share. The famous Dancing Tuna Steak Sandwich keeps neighborhood clients coming back, while the patio is a perfect place for the accidental tourist to sit, sip and people-watch the day away. It's the kind of place where ""everybody knows your name."" What's not to like?

This restaurant has been succe...

This restaurant has been successful for 18 years. The owner, Pete Zotos, is one of the nicest people i have had the pleasure of meeting and will always make sure your experience at St. Pete's is phenomenal. I dont think ive ever been to another restaurant quite like it. I love this place so much! I strongly recommend anything on that menu!

so average

The food and ambiance are so tired. The tuna is frozen and boring. I asked for it rare and it came medium .

Amazing Tunasteak!

Tuna Steak is amazing??
By David - May 31, 2010
The Tuna Steak is better than what you'd get near the ocean. Pete Zotos is the owner, and one of the friendliest, more contentious people I know. Great cocktails, warm people and good food...especially that dad gum Tuna Steak...love it

Beer selection is amazing

The place is uber-cool, indoors and out on the patio: it could easily pass for a business lunch/dinner place as well as friends hang-out, cool bar for casual gatherings, and friendly patio (when It's not 100 degrees outside of course).Beer selection is amazing (skip the silly samplers and go directly to the full menu!), with an extensive menu the choices are varied. They also have a full bar and many beers/ales/ciders on tap to enjoy. Hard to pick out only one of my reccommendations on the menu. You tell ME! What's your choice at St PETES? .

Best Patio in Deep Ellum!

We went to this grill in Deep Ellum for the first time this weekend and had the BEST time. It's a great hang out for happy hour or late night as well. We had the general Bar food but in addition tried their seafood and have to tell you, it's pretty darn good. So good time, good service and great patio in Deep Ellum!

Love love love this Bar/Restaurant!

I went to Pete?s yesterday and let me tell you? this place is GREAT! We were asking about his 6 NEW HUGE tv?s and this bar in Deep Ellum is ready for football! He also said if we picked a tv, he would put on any game we wanted! Now that is service! Not to be stopped at just GREAT SERVICE , the owner went in back and produced the best hamburger I have had in a long time. I took some pictures so you could see the inside so you can try out this non sports bar that is the best sports bar in Deep Ellum. Really, this is a MUST visit. They have a tuna sandwich that is fantastic as well. Give Pete?s a try, I think you too will discover your new burger, sandwich, sports bar, game on, friendly neighborhood bar/ restaurant!

BEWARE! Didn't have a chance to eat. Parking lot scammers booted my car the minute I walked away to get change. $100.00 fine. BEWARE!

A good place for the most part.

The food was super. Nothing at all wrong with the food. The people were very nice also. The only problem we had with the place is that there was this loud mouth drunk at the bar. He was a UT fan. And he let everybody know it. We may go back when we come back in town. You wouldn't think he would be there drunk all the time now would you.



Great Food, Great Service and Great Atomosphere, But rather expensive for just a lunch. I would definately take a date here for something a little more special.
