We had an amazing meal at Marx Wine Bar and would highly recommend it! The Brussel sprout salad was to die for! And I also had a spinach pasta dish that was great!! Definitely try this place if you are in Stillwater!!

Went here on a business trip. Tight space to fit us all in but it worked. Food was great and the servers were on it. I would eat here again if I am in the neighborhood.

My husband and I enjoyed a spectacular dinner our first time here. The following night we had a phenomenal time talking to the incredible bartenders. Joe was warm and made us feel like regulars. We've decided to go back monthly for dates. We adore this place.

Marx has been the go to spot for a long time in Stillwater, but it needs to reboot. Menu is not as inventive as some of the newer restaurants that have opened recently. It's really dark inside and the decor is dated. The food is consistently good, but I just don't want to go in during the spring and summer... More

We live in Stillwater and this is one of our favorites. If you don't see exactly what you want on the menu they will modify it to what you are looking for. I had pasta and they made it without meat and added extra veggies

This is by far the best in Stillwater. Food was very good, made fresh, service was good. Great place for a date night.

nice atmosphere but service was not good and food was so, so. Initially sat at at the bar for 15 minutes watching the staff talk, not a good start. Everything considered we'd maybe try things again.

We ate here for a romantic dinner while visiting Stillwater. My only complaint is that they don't take reservations. The staff was wonderful. It's a little more expensive but the food was great! We did the lobster spinach artichoke dip, Blackened scallops, Spicy sausage pasta, and Chocolate cremebrule. It was a delicious meal and nice atmosphere.

Beautiful presentation of food. The beef tenderloin fillet is so delicious.... everyone raved about their choice of entree or special. Excellent service. Chic decor.

Excellent food, drink, and atmosphere. After a long day on the Spring Flood Run, my wife and I were very hungry. We were both extremely impressed with Marx! We sat at the bar and had drinks and appetizers. We shared the lobster artichoke dip, fish tacos, and Empanada! All were excellent. The service was impeccable!

Thank KlemSchee
