We've eaten here a number of times over the years and always enjoyed it. Over the last month we've wanted to return and have driven by a number of times always to find it dark and the parking lot empty. Monday nights, Thursday nights, Saturday...More

This restaurant has fallen way off! We checked the menu on the internet prior to traveling an hour to get there. The menu advertised lamb rack and pork shanks and onion soup and so many great items that we wanted to try. However the actual...More

Celebrating a 70th Birthday. Food was very good. Had the rack of lamb and it was excellent. It’s BYOB which is nice and there was no corkage fee. One negative was we brought our own Birthday cake and they charged $4 a person for cutting...More

This is our favorite restaurant in the area. The owner/chef has a small menu which he varys seasonally, and we always enjoy his food. I can't say this about any other restaurant: we have never been disappointed. He grows some of his food, and has...More

I don't eat here often because I don't often think of it, which is my loss. The food is very good (high end), it is BYOB, the wait staff is friendly, the chef comes out to the table, and the building is cozy and unique....More

We have been dining at Trax occasionally for almost 20 years. The food is consistently good and obviously prepared with care. However, my main complaint is the intolerable noise level when the dining area is full. Last Saturday night I could not hear the person...More

We and another couple went to Trax to celebrate New Years Eve this past winter. The food was fabulous, the service attentive and friendly. I'm looking forward to going there for my birthday.

My split pea soup had stringy meat in it. Taste was not good. Lamb chop entree was good quality, but lacked flavor. Apple fritter dessert was good. Prices were high. Only benefit was BYOB. I would not encourage anyone else to visit.

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...More
