Train station turned elegant BYOB. Great service, Distinctive menu with outside/indoor dining right by the tracks.

This restaurant has consistent good food in a cozy atmosphere at the old Ambler Train Station. Great for groups. Can get noisy when full and that is only downside.

We always enjoy coming to Trax Cafe in Ambler (been coming here for many years). Convenient parking is in their lot at the train station. Trax is a BYOB. Small space and tables are close, but not really a problem. A bit noisy, but cozy....More

We went to Trax to celebrate a birthday and were looking forward to a nice meal. The restaurant was full, so it was a little difficult to hear the people at the table. To start, we ordered the mozzarella and roasted red peppers with pesto....More

In a word, underwhelming. Ordered the special brisket dish and the apple smoked ribs and jerk chicken on-menu dish. Both were bland. The one item that was spiced was the coleslaw. Edible, but nothing to write home about. The red pepper and mozzarella cheese and...More
