Wine bar features mostly California wines. Nice selections and very reasonable prices. They had some wines from Paso and Santa Barbara pouring, plus some from France. Nice range. Menu features lots of local items from area shops. Saturday night $1 oysters. Waterfront location and nice service. The cheese plate and crostini are yummy. Would love to visit again and recommend.

I don't know if this is one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at, but it is a very good wine bar. The food was excellent, promptly served, and the wine was very good and reasonably priced. It was just a nice little place to visit. We would definitely recommend.

They have a great selection of wine and even a few cigars to sample here. But we usually go here to enjoy the great food. They also have a restaurant in town, but this menu is one of the best in Morro Bay, if not extensive. The food is excellent!!

Great little wine bar in Morro Bay right by the water. They have a good selection of local wines very reasonably priced. And their tapas are great: you can choose from their Panini selection, oysters, prawns, or salads, there is something for everyone. The price is unbeatable (a sandwich for $10 that will satisfy you enough to call it dinner).... More

The lady that always takes care of us seems a little overwhelmed sometimes and other times a little out of it. Asked us three times if we were eating or tasting or both. We told her when we were first seated, but she kept forgetting. She told us we couldn't use our coupon and get the special price on the... More

Being a local to Morro Bay, this is my hang out, whether a romantic date with my wife, fun hangout with friends, or lunch with coworkers. The vibe is a cool rustic wine bar with food that will make you wanting more! Cheese plate, meat plate and paninis are always my go to items. And of course their wine. They... More

We read up about Stax on Tripadvisor and visited on a Sunday night on our way up Highway 1. Stax is located on the Power Plant end of Morro Bay's waterfront (hence stacks!). The interior is inviting with plenty of wood, and the staff were friendly. We took the tasting menu of wines (5 wines for $10). The wines were... More

Friendly atmosphere, nice selection of wines. The owners were chatty and fun to talk to. Live acoustic guitar entertainment was great

So we are a few months on since we went on tour from LA up to San Fran over to Yosemite and on to Vegas and I find myself thinking about how much we enjoyed Stax in Morro Bay (this is the first review I have written on that trip this far which probably speaks volume). Whilst Stax was quiet... More
