When you come to the Axe House Tavern (formerly Pigeon Forge Axe House), they will always treat you like the champion you know you are. Thanks to their affiliation with the World Axe Throwing League, you can trust that they will set you up to throw like a pro time and time again. All across their venue, you will only find competition-grade throwing lanes and axes, all of which are kept in pristine condition.

Whether you arrive solo or as a part of a big group, you will receive a warm welcome the second you walk in the door. Their coaches greet each group with a smile and provide a quick rundown on how to safely throw the axes at the target. Since they know first-time visitors are likely stepping well outside their comfort zone, they stick around to answer any and all questions from the group.

The coaches are doubly helpful when bringing kids along to try their hand at axe throwing. Just ask to check their ability in the test lane before letting them participate in the games. The coaches will make sure they are throwing accurately and safely to help you decide if they are able to participate. No matter the age of your group members, be prepared to sign a waiver before going to your assigned throwing lane.

You cannot bring any outside food and drinks into the establishment, but luckily, they have many tasty foods and beverages on their menu. They do require that you keep your snacks and drinks well behind the red lines to keep the throwing lanes clear of potentially-dangerous spills and debris.

In between throws, treat yourself to:

Killshot Nachos
When you want nachos with all the fixings, give the Killshot Nachos a try. They start this amazing appetizer with a bed of crunchy tortilla chips. Then, they pour cheese, brisket, jalapenos, peppers, and onions over the top. A drizzle of barbecue sauce brings everything together to create the ultimate starter for all to enjoy.

Supreme Pizza
When you want to feed the whole group, nothing but the Supreme Pizza will do. You can order this pizza in 12- and 16-inch sizes with their robust thick crust or their crispy thin crust. The 7-inch pizza only comes in thick crust. Either way, toppings include pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, and onions with a delicious red sauce and tons of cheese.

Funnel Cake Fries
When you want something sweet, don’t pass up the Funnel Cake Fries. These fried delights come in a big newspaper-lined basket covered in chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and sprinkles. To top it all off, you get a donut stuffed full of ice cream and drizzled in all the goods.

In addition to all their great food, they give you a wide variety of alcoholic drink options to wet your whistle. The most popular of the bunch are their draft brews, which range from classic Bud Light to flavorful Blackhorse Vanilla Cream Ale. They also have 16-ounce cans of beer if you would rather. If you are craving sparkling fruity drinks, then look to their margaritas featuring bright lime or mango flavors.

Insider Tips:
– To show their respect for all veterans, they offer 50% off to former members of the military every day of the week. On Veteran’s Day, they go one step further by allowing all veterans to play for free.
– Axe coaches keep a close eye on the games to watch for improper use of the axes. If busted, the offending party will receive notice to leave or even get escorted outside.
– Plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled timeslot to avoid missing out on the fun.
– If you need to cancel, give them at least 24 hours notice or you could forfeit your deposit.
– Make sure everyone in your party wears comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes. No flip flops or sandals are allowed.
