Marx was one of the only restaurants in Stillwater that would take a reservation, and when you have a party of 12, you need a reservation. But we got lucky on this one. Our server, Star (yes her name was Star, and she was one), greeted us and made us feel welcome as we waited for the 2nd half of our group to park. She explained the menu, and we told her that one of us had just had surgery and could only eat liquid or soft foods. She offered to talk to the chef to see what they could create for us. She was fun, accommodating, and very knowledgeable about the menu. The chef came out to explain the special meal he made for our friend, and he went all out. Apparently he had broken his jaw years ago and understood the challenge of going weeks without solid food. He made a gourmet pureed meal that made our friend grin from ear to ear. All of the food was fantastic and we tried several items including the lobster dip, mozzarella rolls, walleye dumplings, steaks, seafood, pasta. They were busy, and the food was slow to arrive. The main course probably came 30-45 minutes after we ordered. But the appetizers and bread tided us over. And Star kept us engaged. We would highly recommend this restaurant and especially Star as your server.

We were a group of 11 and from the minute we walked into the restaurant we were cared for and absolutely delighted with our dining experience from start to finish.

All of the entrées were superb. Our waitress was highly professional and attentive. A special note to the chef. A member of our party recently had surgery and could only eat puréed foods. The chef prepared an absolutely perfect meal – delicious and aesthetically beautiful. He personally delivered it to the patron, making the experience even more special.

We will definitely go back and highly recommend this great restaurant.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner on Marx's nice private patio. Our server, Star, was very friendly and knowledgable. We got the fresh Mozzarella appetizer which was good, but not amazing. But we both loved our dinners. I had the Linguini Lucca Brazzi which was very flavorful and unique and my husband enjoyed the Walleye Tempura Fish Tacos and Loved them. He was pleased with the beer menu as well.

Highly recommended for dinner in Stillwater!

My wife recently had a few drinks and dinner here so I thought I'd update my review. The food and service here remain very good/excellent. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Stillwater and I would recommend it.

Since its opening the varied menu selections, exquisitely prepared food with fresh ingredients, amiable and knowledgeable waitstaff has never changed. Still excellent throughout. Whether its the pasta offerings, fresh fish (the sea bass when on the menu is a must), and fish stews are still top notch. Put this one on your list of places to try when visiting Stillwater.
