I had the paella and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. The service was great as well I will return again to this restaurant next time I am in Stillwater.

First, in reference to a certain politically charged review from a previous tripadvisor: enough! Shut up! Now, on to the important stuff. This restaurant is solid. From the staff to the food and everything in between. Stellar. Keep it up!

A friend and I visited Stillwater and went here for dinner the first night. We liked it so much that we went back again the second night - despite the fact that there are so many good restaurants in Stillwater. The food is creative and consistent. Sit on the patio in the back if the weather permits!

Marx is always a good choice. It offers variety and good selections and friendly staff. I've been enjoying my visits there for years. During my first experience at Marx, I ordered a grilled pork chop and it was indeed the best I had ever eaten. If it had been my last meal - I would not have complained.

My wife and I go to Marx routinely, about once a month. It offers patio dining in the summer and has both a dining area and a bar area where you can eat - take your choice. The wait staff are extremely personable, knowledgeable, and know their wine and do not have to read off of their hand pads what... More

I went in with high expectations and was mostly satisfied...with the food. The tuna tartar starter was tasteless, however the mahi entree I had was excellent. Unfortunately what ruined my experience were all the racist female patrons. My date was from a different ethnic group than I and we were greeted with open looks of disdain and contempt! I can't...

I thought this might be one of those upscale places where you pay a lot and get a little. I was wrong. You get a decent amount for what you pay. The atmosphere is great. The waitstaff was fantastic. Very friendly people. Appetizers were perfectly sized and delicious. For entrees, they have something for everyone. Great food. I will definitely... More

We stayed in Stillwater at the Aurora Staples Inn for our anniversary and had dinner at Marx. We had not been to Marx in awhile, but the food was still fabulous. Both of us ordered one of the specials - grilled tuna and halibut entrees. Wonderful flavors and fresh fish! It was a Tuesday night and they had a great... More

We met two couples there on a Tuesday night when they had music and the food and service were wonderful and the music was the right volume!
