They have the best atmosphere, food, and drinks in Dallas. If you go on a week day you might even meet "st Pete" if you're lucky! Look for the Greek that answers to Pete and that's the man himself!! Love this place.

The tuna was good but they've changed the dressing from cucumber wasabi to something else. It just wasn't as good. We walked away feeling... More

The staff that was working were all very nice to chat with and provided great service. It was a slow night when I was there... More

Dined on calamari and ahi tuna crostini and beers for our appetizers. Discovered Dallas Blonde and really enjoyed the taste of this local beer. I had the burger for dinner and opted to try the tater tots as our server convinced me they were homemade.....they tasted like frozen Ore Ida..... Our server was an outgoing college student who was able... More

Lots of fish decor in an old building with original hardwood floors and a beautiful old bar. Happy Hour seemed to be a big hit there for the locals. We got there around 6:30 for a meal.

St. Pete's Dancing Marlin on Commerce Street is a casual dining bar in the heart of Dallas' eclectic Deep Ellum neighborhood. Its right behind the new Bomb Factory music venue and a great place to go before or after a concert. The food is American, but with a few dashes of Greek and even, Cajun flare, reflecting the personality of... More
