THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mr. Stox Restaurant Review

: Longtime owners Chick, Ron and Debbie Marshall have kept much of the restaurant’s original décor, which now seems outdated, with kitschy ’70s art and horseshoe booths. Through it all, chef Scott Raczek continues cooking up his signature and seasonal dishes, as well as baking artisan breads and growing herbs for his sauces. Regulars start with the grilled day boat scallops, served with roasted carrot purée, picked red onions and micro greens. The soft shell crab salad tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette makes for a good transition into the main course. It’s hard to find good lobster in OC, so don’t miss out on adding a tender and smoky lobster tail to your Prime New York steak, rack of Colorado lamb or prime rib. With a 25,000-bottle cellar, Mr. Stox has an extraordinary wine list featuring bottles from around the world. This restaurant is a draw for conventioneers and out-of-towners, as well as having one of the busiest event schedules in town.
