The Axe Bar
Reservation system was chaotic and pretty much worthless. Our reservation was for 7:15. We had two lanes for two hours. We didn’t get a lane until after 8:00 and were still charged for two hours per person even though we vacated the lane before 9:30. We were told their reservation system didn’t work right and allowed up to 100 groups to reserve the same times slots. We were apparently ahead of walk ins though, so I guess there’s that. Another group of our friends, who coincidentally also had reservations for the same time with another party, never did get a lane before leaving. On the plus side, staff were really helpful, friendly, and passionate. And we heard the food was really good (though we didn’t eat there ourselves).
Super fun time! The instructors were helpful and it was a ton of fun in genera!
More food choices would be nice like burgers and such
Concession stand-level food options. Axe-throwing area is cool, but it gets costly.
we loved josh, shae, and leslie! They were all so genuinely kind and friendly and fun to be around!
Staff was super friendly, especially Shae! They go out of their way to make sure everyone is having a good experience. The Axe-arita was very tasty and they have a great selection of draft beer. Will definitely be back!
This was our first time ever going to any axe throwing bar. They was very nice and helpful explaining what to do and helping with any questions during our visit. Will definitely be back and recommend this to anyone.
I gave food one star because we didn't eat there. We only did a 30 minute axe throwing session due to our first time. It was a good time and the staff was great!
Shae Butter was fantastic and ensured our need after throwing were meet with drinks and delishious food!
I thought it was pricey for the axe throwing. Drinks and food were great. Service was great.
We were celebrating a birthday and had a fantastic time! Staff was attentive and helpful. We extended our reservation and they were very accommodating. Mixed drinks were good and the beer was cold. We’ll definitely be coming back!
Very good food and drinks. The pizza has a very good and unique sauce. Axe throwing was fun and easier than I thought it would be. Instructors are great and make you feel at ease.
Fun fun fun. Lots of beers on tap, including locals. They really seem to appreciate your attendance.
It was a lot of fun but very busy. We had reservations but had to wait about an hour before we could throw. Overall we had a great time.
Axe Bar was a blast! We will for sure be back. Staff was awesome.
So I had to leave a star level on the food. However, I did not eat the food there this go-round. I did enjoy the drinks though. The staff was super friendly and accommodating for my party. Josh our coach for the day was great! Gave us great tips and was there if we had any additional questions. The price was very reasonable and the space was great. I will definitely be returning.
We loved throwing the axes! It was a bit loud towards the end of our time. I’d to come earlier next time. The food was expensive without much variety- just appetizers and pizza.
First time experience throwing axes was great! Very spacious inside with nice areas for each group. Instruction was excellent and we all were throwing and competing after a few throws. Excellent service with constant check backs for drinks. Thin crust pizza not very good as the sauce was too sweet and not appealing. Better food would give this place a “5” rating. Best to eat before or after.
First time ever throwing an axe. We had a group of 9. We played for an hour which felt like the perfect amount of time. The food was really tasty and we all had a blast. Great time :)
Booked for 8, told me they didnt have a spot for half an hour when we arrived.
Also, the system they have punishes large groups because they charge per person rather than per axe throwing lane. So, if you have a large group, book multiple lanes half an hour in advance.
The axe-throwing was fantastic, but a reservation means nothing. We waited nearly 2 hours (reservation was 7:30 and we started throwing at 9:10), which is absolutely ridiculous.
Food was overpriced.
The staff was super friendly.
Great beer selection.
Had a blast throwing axes!
We had a fantastic time at The Axe Bar. The cocktails were solid, food was standard bar cuisine, and the axe throwing was such fun! Great instructors made the learning smooth and easy. I highly recommend!
Everyone there was super helpful and friendly. There were always people there to coach you through axe throwing and offer helpful tips. Great first experience!
I would definitely recommend the axe bar. Fun music. Cool activity (Marcus provided great instruction and guidance). Food is really good but menu is a bit limited (fried finger foods and pizza). Worth checking out. Also within walking distance of a variety of other enjoyable venues.
Went with a group of 6. One hour was enough time for the group to get 7 rounds in. Drinks and food were good and priced well. Pizza is great and plenty of food for 4-6 people. Only complaints is the noise level is so high it’s hard to have a conversation.
The overall experience was very good. Our axe guide, Marcus, was very nice and personable. The food and beer was very delicious as well. Kind of on the expensive side, but it was very enjoyable.
upscale bar food and great atmosphere. perfect place for teambuilding and something different.
Josh was such an awesome help in getting us aquatinted to the activity. Very personable, helpful and friendly. Fun activity, decently priced, drinks/food wasn’t the best, but overall a good 45 mins of fun.
Easily one of the best new places in Champaign-Urbana! The axe throwing coaches were professional and patient, asking to offer advice before doing it (a HUGE plus), and encouraging us when we were successful. We tried two menu items -- the sweet potato puffs and the spicy cheese curds -- and both were amazing! We will definitely be coming back to try more of the food (and use more of the specialty axes)!
Made reservations for 9 and didn’t end up throwing until about an hour later. Other than that everything else was great!
Super energetic, really fun atmosphere! Recommend 10/10.
This was so much fun! This was a great date. My husband and I had a great time. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Not much food to choose from and very expensive for quantity and quality!
Our coach was not very helpful. You could tell he had not taught before - he just kept repeating the same thing. My friend ended up helping me more than the coach
Food was great! (Highly recommend the Mac and cheese bites!), the AxeArita is as good. The axe throwing was fun and well set up! Definitely will be back.
Had a great time! The coach was great, and staff was friendly and attentive. Food is a little on the pricey side, but comparable to downtown Champaign pricing.
Super helpful staff and a fun environment! The price is well worth the time and would be great for a large group!
