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. The food was good but not fantastic. The service was very good and we enjoyed our meal. our children received coloring material and... More

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

For many many years, this place is just great food. You will find the best burger in town. Best pasta dishes. The bartender is always very attentive and great service

A friend of mine who used to live in Dallas suggested that we visit Deep Ellum. The area, just east of Downtown has an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, shops and graffiti. We visited early on a Saturday night with my near teenage daughter. Deep Ellum was fairly busy, but I sense that there was a lot more to come!... More

While the food is good (try the humus with veggies) the wait staff sets this restaurant apart from the usual fare.

Business lunch meeting and guest had the fish and chips which were good. I had the burger with bacon and pepper jack cheese which was just ok. Disappointed with the lukewarm temp of burger. Fries were also not freshly cooked or hot. The waiter was super which made it an okay visit overall. Bummer as they've been better in past.... More

This bar/grill is a must when in Deep Ellum! Excellent service and drinks! Don't forget the mozzarella sticks bc they are the best you have had. The decor is festive to the name as is the great patio! It's a staple and not to be missed!

You can always count on this restaurant for a good burger and fries. It's been here for a long time and has a regular clientele.

We were ready for some fun after two days of sitting so 18 of us descended on St. Pete's recommended by a friend. The atmosphere was funky but not kitsch bad taste every restaurant has the same junk on the walls but very cool, unusual where the hell did they find that kind of stuff. Our large group overwhelmed the... More
