STAX was our oasis after a 5 hour drive up from San Diego! The crostini's and specials are just the right amount for 2 to share so you can more than 2! You walk around STAX and choose a bottle of wine thats right for the moment or just buy a glass. The help treats you like a local and... More

We actually decided to go here because there are no decent choices in Cayucos (up the coast a couple of miles) on Monday and Tuesday. An inspired choice. This is actually our sort of thing: different and interesting wines and small plates of food (not major meals). Young people running it know what they are doing. 5 wine choices by... More

Came here both nights of our stay in Morro Bay. Great little spot. Filet mignon crostini with pesto sauce I wanted to lick off the plate!! Yummy shrimp cocktail with a good amount of shrimp-sometimes you pay a lot for just a couple! Panini was decent, made better when we scooped some of the pesto off the crostinis and added... More

We dropped in for the 3pm-5pm glass of wine for $5 "happy hour". Wonderful server, well lit, scenic little bar and wine shop. We were welcomed and had a couple of glasses of a nice Chardonnay, very enjoyable, full of locals, mostly groups of women in their 30's to 50's all having a great time...Nice place, back tomorrow

Met a beloved cousin here for dinner and wine on Sunday evening. I asked the server about the champagne specials advertised outside. He said he hadn't checked out the specials yet. I went ahead and ordered the $20 unlimited champagne because I simply love champagne. My husband was served water with no ice. My cousin ordered the mushroom toast which... More

After experiencing a terrible time at Bella Vino's, we thought we try Stax again. This was for a birthday so we wanted it special. So we left Bella's and headed for Stax's. Wow, what a difference. The food was delicious, service great, prices even better and it was their Bingo nite. What a great time we all had. All that... More

Where else can you have wine, cheese, small plates and the sunset? I'm open to suggestions. We enjoyed good local wines, several small plates including a cheese board, a very crisp Caesar salad, and yummy porcine and portabello crostini with way too many tastes to list. Very friendly staff, nice ambiance, and a sunset...beach visiting at it's best.

Wanted to try Stax for quite awhile and finally went for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Morro Bay in general was packed but Stax only had a few tables full. I hope that changes for them very soon because this was a great find! We decided on the wine tasting menu (5 wines) and started with a German Riesling and... More
