“HORRIBLE PLACE, DO NOT GO NEAR: LOUSY SERVICE, BAD QUALITY FOOD, LOUD UGLY MUSIC”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2010

Totally overated: we went there yesterday and the waitress and waiter did not know what they were doing. Ordered pasta that had the cheese cooked inside WITH THE PASTA! The salad leaves were old, the service slow, the music unbearable. The beer, listed $3.50 on the menu, but charged $4.25 in the final bill. Tuna steak small, not cooked well, definitely served badly.

Really bad place. stay away.

“Great food. Friendly service. Nice selection of beer.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2009

We stumbled onto St. Pete's Dancing Marlin in July while walking around in the Deep Ellum district on Dallas. The restaurant/bar has a neat pub ambiance that's decorated with lots of fishing memorabilia. We enjoyed the friendly bartenders and had fun sampling some of their beers. Make sure to stop here for some pasta!
