Excellent spot

I was there with a friend and we wanted to taste some local wines and have a small dinner. We were so lucky to go to Stax, because everything there was exactly what we wanted. A special wine tasting menu with 2 oz. pours or several wines by the glass are offered. The food menu is mostly small... read more

STAX has become a place we visit every time we go to Morro Bay. The wine and beer selection is good, and the food is great. The food menu is diverse, the portions are just right, and the prices are even better. Sometimes we go for a late lunch or just go for a glass of wine after dinner. This... More

We were just wandering past and stopped in. We had a great night. There was some live music. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful. Simple but really nice and well priced too. A few wines, some beer, a nice meal and overall we had had a great night. Thanks to the Stax Team. Oh and you... More

We dropped by STAX Wine Bar & Bistro for an after dinner glass of wine and were rewarded with excellent wines to choose from and a knowledgeable and friendly wait staff. Loved the view, the service and the cigars they sell at the counter. Too bad they don't have an outdoor area in which to enjoy a cigar with top-shelf... More

For a small town, Morro Bay has lots of restaurants, most of them very good. There are simple restaurants and elegant ones. Italian, Japanese, fish, breakfast and lunch, and some only for dinner. Some with outdoor seating, others with views. There also are 2 wine bars, one called Staxs which serves delicious tapus-style food. On Thursday evening it is particularly... More

Great little selection of snack type dinners. Really special, although small portions perfect for a light dinner. Excellent selection of wines, and even a few cigars. A nice little place often overlooked in Morro Bay. Affiliated with Giovanni's Fish Market. So good fish if you wish!

This was literally right down the hill form our hotel. Wine tasting and tasty bites. We came in the place was fairly crowded. Found a spot at the end of the bar serving area. A great guitarist was playing that night ( I think they have music twice a week). That was fun treat. Ordered oysters but they were out... More
