I was in town for a conference and, with a small group, was directed to Marx Wine Bar and Grill. I only had one meal there, but the penne pasta with hot Italian sausage (locally made -- I asked, at the risk of sounding Portlandia-ish!) was delicious and plentiful. Unlike some sausages, this one was not overbearing and actually tasted "light." Fresh, airy bread with oil and parmesan topped it off nicely.
There is an extensive wine list, and other menu items incude pistachio crusted walleye and Lake Superior whitefish (this is Minnesota, after all) as well as beef and lamb standards. And Jimmy, the bartender, gave us great service as we sat, ate, and talked at the bar.
All in all, great food and atmosphere in Stillwater, Minnesota.
