We came here to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was a great dinner. We decided to get a bunch of appetizers to create our own small plate experience. They were all really good. We also got drinks and dessert. The service was excellent and I would definitely go there again.

Our waitress was knowledgeable of the menu and chef, helpful, and solicitous. All of our entrees were quite nice. The highlight was probably their in-house baked bread with garlic olive oil and balsamic.

We usually go to Marx at least once a month, and we have never been dissatisfied. My husband ordered the Bruschetta and, lately, he is requesting the Homemade Pappardelle Pistacho. I ordered the Empanada, (really good and rich in spices, but not hot at all), and, as entree, the Pistachio Encrusted Walleye, as I always do. The walleye is flavorful... More

I brought a hospice nurse with me, who had never been at Marx Wine Bar and Grill. We both enjoyed our lunch, and will definitely be back again.

Marx is nestled in the middle of Stillwater's quaint downtown and provided us with a delightful break from our shopping adventures. My husband fully enjoyed the rich flavored warm duck salad, and I liked the lighter endive, beet, bacon and crystallized pecan salad. Marx also has personal pizzas and delicious pastas, each with unique and interesting ingredients. The wine list... More

Stopped for lunch and were really impressed! Had a pasta dish that we shared and an appetizer. Both were outstanding. Wine was paired for the meal and it too was wonderful. Well go back!

This visit was not the first one I had to this place. This time we were a group of seven people to have Happy Hour and Dinner. After a couple of drinks at the bar, we had dinner. Some of us had a full course of dinner, others preferred small plates like BBQ Shrimp & Tuna Tartar with a large... More

We love Marx! There is no better food in the Twin Cities. We have the ability to go all over the Twin Cities, but live in Stillwater. We try new places and are always sorry that we didn't stay in our back yard.
