Very good spot for a sophisticated but not stuffy evening. We like good wine but are not experts by any means. They have a great selection of wines and they will guide you to what you will enjoy most. Also, the appetizers deserve special mention, as the choices are extremely delicious. The staff is fun and very friendly, too.

Hubs and I stopped in. Nice paninis, crostinis, charcuterie, etc. not quite a full meal but good. Good bottle selection - lots of central coast options. Also have a 5 wine flight for $10. Would recommend.

The Anderson family from the Inn recommended Stax as a fun place to go sit, chill and have a glass of wine. They were absolutely right. Stax is at the end of the Embarcadero, kind of tucked around the corner. We sat at the bar, had a beautiful glass of wine and an appetizer. The staff was friendly and the... More

This place is the bomb. I ordered the flight and it started with a riesling(which I am not a fan of) and I loved it sooo much. The cesear crostini amaaaazing! I loved the anchovies-super fresh and not salty at all. They have a local brewed hard cider that is good too. The server is very attentive and really goes... More

This is my family's "go to" spot when we want a relaxing meal out! It's so much more than just a wine bar. The ingredients of the crostini dishes are always consistently fresh. If wine isn't your thing, they also have a good variety of beers on the menu. The staff is friendly and laid back. A great view of... More

My husband and I were spending a "staycation" in Morro Bay and decided to try STAX. We live in Paso and work in the tourism business - for some reason we've never tried STAX. BIG mistake! The place is pleasant, offers a really nice selection of wines and food, too. It's got a view of Morro Rock (sort of) and... More

Fabulous selection of California wines, service is exceptional, they have occasional live music that is always great to sip wine to and visit with friends. You might even meet someone new, It's a gathering place for the who's who on the Central coast of California. Not unheard of for a celebrity to pop in once and awhile. Very relaxing and... More

They had the best oysters. Excellent ambiance. We had some wine and craft beer. We enjoyed our appetizers and the great service.

Love to stop by this place every time we are in Morro Bay. Always have very interesting pours for tasting, some local some not. So kick back with a cheese platter, people watch, and try something new.
