Great tapas type food and of course great wine.

If you want some tapa type food and some wine while wandering around Morro Bay, check out this great little "bistro". When friends visit the area we always take them here for some good wine and food. A nice respite.

Husband and I were looking for a place to grab a quick bite on our way up the PCH/Highway 1. Luckily, we found STAX. Great service, great food, and a killer wine list! They are right on the waterfront. Don't miss them! The roasted vegetable panini sandwich was excellent.

Just staying one night in MB, and found this gem in Trip Advisor. Was a Thursday and they had an acoustical trio playing; Green To White. Food, music and wine were all excellent with service to match. Paninis were quite good as were the cheese and meat plates.

Great Wines !!! The food was fresh and presented as a TV chef would serve a meal. The Cheese plate and the Oilve appetizers were top quality and tasty. Liz was very helpful in selecting a wine and made me feel welcomed. The local band that plays on Thursdays was icing on the cake. Had a great time !!!

I enjoyed an early dinner at Stax, which offers a lovely environment with friendly staff, great wine choices, and a smart menu. I had a glass of Merlot and their chicken Panini, which was very good. I really enjoyed the vibe in the restaurant, and can imagine with live music it's great!

Best wine selection in Morro Bay. High end wines. They serve food and have live music as well. You can buy bottles to go or eat and drink there and watch the water.

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 plates, but... 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 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
