My husband and I are here on a Saturday evening. I had the mint cucumber cocktail- basically 2 for 1 because they give you the shaker! I had the spinach pasta with shrimp that was very creamy but unique. My husband had the walleye crusted...More

We both ordered the penne with asparagus, mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, snow peas, parmesan and garlic. I ordered Gluten Free and it was quickly served. The penne was cooked perfect. At many restaurants I can't get GF or it is mushy, etc.

Always have great service and food. My wife is vegan and the chef makes something special for her diet. Interesting specials and favorite menu items make it an easy choice.

Apps and drinks at the bar. Fun atmosphere. Great salads, which we shared. Bruchetta, salmon tartar, and lobster dip, all delicious. Knowledgeable bartenders. Personable owner/chef adds to the experience. I'll be going back for dinner in the near future.

Like the place, but you end up paying a pretty high price. Food is not cheap and wine by the glass is really high (like so many places). Good seafood. Decor is getting a little old.

I went to Marx with 3 of my friends for Stillwater Ladies Night and we got there around 5:45 and unfortunately didn't leave until after 8:00. While the food was good the service was slow all around and I think it was because they just...More
