Mr. Stox opened in 1968 in Anaheim (near Angel Stadium) and quickly became the go-to, gourmet steak house in the area. In 1977 The Marshalls purchased Mr. Stox and expanded the menu to be more of a fine dining destination with a lot of menu variety and an extensive wine list. The current ownership group is Chick Marshall, his brother, Ron, and Ron’s wife, Debbie.
On March 15th Mr. Stox will serve it’s final meals. The Marshalls, now in their 36th year at Mr. Stox, have decided to retire and sold the property for development as an apartment complex.
