We enjoyed Trax Restaurant, which is located in the suburban Philadelphia town of Ambler, during the semi-annual Ambler Restaurant Week. The prix-fix menu had a wide variety of dishes for every palate, and the restaurant is BYOB. Oh, and it's located in the quaint town of Ambler.

Trax is a very small restaurant, so reservations are definitely recommended. The building used to be the town's train station, and the trains still run behind the restaurant. There is indoor and outdoor covered seating.

We thoroughly enjoyed every item we ordered! The tomato soup was perfect, as was the tomato mozzarella salad as starters. The statler chicken and penne pasta were both cooked perfectly. The chicken had nice crispy skin and the chicken was moist. The sauce on the pasta was succulent and delicious.

For dessert, we ordered the chocolate mousse, which was a very good chocolate mousse, as well as the peach cobbler, which was huge, but delicious! The peaches were fresh and the cobbler was crunchy and crispy, even after sitting in the peaches as we ate around the cobbler.

Our waitress was also very helpful and friendly, even as the restaurant started to get busy. We highly recommend making the trip out to Ambler and giving Trax Restaurant a try!

My husband and I went to Trax for the first time two weeks ago for Restaurant week deciding that it would be a good time to try something new. We were not disappointed! It is BYOB and there were at least 6-8 different choices for appetizer and entree and 4 for dessert for a price fixe. We enjoyed fennel salad and gaspacho. My husband had steak with mashed potatoes and veggies and I had lobster and crab over fettucini. Both were excellent. The warm peach crisp and pound cake with fruit compote both a la mode were delicious. We will definitely be back. Everyone around us was enjoying their meals too. We will be back soon.

By far the best meal I have ever had! And the atmosphere is great. And, it is BYO. How do you beat it!? It was a little high in price; but definitely worth every penny! They also participate in Ambler Restaurant week; so that is a great time to go and get a lot of food for a reasonable price!

We always go to "Trax" when we are in town to visit our Mom. The whole family loves this place. A special atmosphere at night. I would call it festive. Everyone always seems to be enjoying their meals surrounding us. Very good food and very good service! Can't wait to go back.
