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.

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....More

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.
