Superb wine bar in an unexpected setting

I arrived early for an organized birding weekend and was parched after a 6 hour drive. It was an off time (about 4 in the afternoon) but I was a bit hungry and thirsty. Stax Wine Bar was open, the woman who greeted me was very welcoming and the bartender accommodating. The mushroom toasts (there... read more

Stax is a fun alternative to other restaurants. We enjoyed a light dinner, seated at a high top, surrounded by cases of local wines (there is also standard table and a sofa seating area). A smoked chicken brioche and a grilled vegetable panini, served with marcona almonds were both excellent. The staff knows their wines, and everyone was very accommodating.... More

We visit this area often as full-time RV'ers who are last from California. We decided to stop in after walking along the waterfront for some wine & appetizer. We were warmly greeted by Liz & she was extremely efficient and knowledgeable. We had the cheese platter....fabulous! The view is beautiful & it's the perfect place to try a new wine... More

Friendly informative staff. They have a great champagne selection! Fantastic local wines! Their menu is great too! I've had their chicken panini, really enjoyed that, but I recommend their Spanish sardines appetizer, absolutely perfect!

My husband and I had about 40 guests for a milestone birthday party (adults only). STAX was perfect, the place looked great; the food, wine, and service were excellent. Genevieve and Tammy worked with me ahead of time to be sure we had everything ready and organized. Easy to work with. They took all the stress out of it so... More
