It is very loud and the food was not cooked as requested. I think the prices are high. My filet, which was a "special", was ordered medium well. It arrived at the table extremely rare. Everyone else had their meal. My filet had to be returned for more cooking. When it was returned to the kitchen, the cook decided to... More

Over priced for what you get. Food was good but portion was small even for lunch. Everything was extra. BYOB. Space is small, limited seating.

Since this is a BYOB, I brought a special concoction we all like. One of the servers asked what it was and the asked if she could smell it. Ok..but then she proceeded to take a sip and give the drink back to my wife..Unbelievable!! Should have walked out then. I ordered the brook trout and it came out in... More

We ventured to Trax last night for the first time. I have to compliment our server who was extremely nice and helpful. The food was very tasty but we almost walked out before we actually had a chance to enjoy it. As we sat at our table I noticed three different bugs walk by on the window sill and a... More

Just tried Trax for the first time. The atmosphere is nice, but noisy. They do have indoor and outdoor seating. The food was good, but prices seemed a little high. One of my companions was disappointed by the amount of meat on the lamb chops. Overall we had a great evening. Remember to bring your own wine!

We had one of the best meals we've had at Trax. The food was very fresh and everything we ordered was delicious. We shared three appetizers- beets with spinach and feta cheese, roasted Brussels sprouts and avocado and crab salad. All of them were wonderful. For my entree, I had striped bass, while others had lamb chops, strip steak and... More

Small byo at the ambler train station. The food and service are very good. My boys love the barbecue platter. I've never had a bad meal.

Great meal! Everything was very fresh. They were able to accommodate gluten free needs. Make sure to get a reservation because the place is tiny. It's located in the old Ambler train station.

Trax Cafe – Ambler. 2 adults / Friday evening / $112 including tax and tip. Trax Café is a very cozy BYOB restaurant immediately adjacent to the Ambler rail station with ample parking and outdoor dining. Servers are quite pleasant, knowledgeable, and attentive and our overall experience was pleasant though the prices were high given the portion sizes and the... More
