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 directly across the table from me. I pulled out my phone and turned on the... 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.

I've had a couple meals from Trax at the Farmer's Market, my crab sandwich was really nice but not so in love with their berry compote pancakes. The real problem is the owner who imposed himself on me at the farmer's market during a problem with parking, saying "I know who you are" and "Be Gone". I have reviewed Trax... More

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
