Awesome place. Great service!!
Kaci was great with us. She really coached us through everything and was very attentive. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back whenever we find ourselves back in Nashville!
Like a bowling alley but with axes instead of balls.
We had a good time but Axe throwing was not our primary focus so we ended up wasting money on the axe lane. The location is staffed with friendly people and is clean and lively. But you really need to want to focus on throwing axes. Since we didn't focus on axing when our hour was up we paid our $100 for the lane plus our food and then kinda had to go.
So in the end it would be an incredible location for avid axe throwers.
- great staff
- parking is limited in sketchy area of town
- mixed drinks are mostly mix
It was a great time. Enjoyed the axe throwing. Didn’t go there for the food so the food was good enough. I would go back.
Fun place! Great food and drinks!
Our group had a blast at bad axe throwing. There were some menu items that weren’t available and our food and drinks took a long time, so that was disappointing. Overall, I would recommend it since we enjoyed it.
We were visiting Nashville and wanted something fun for the kids and adults to do together…something out of the ordinary!! This place was PERFECT! Food was so so but the fun made up for it! Great serves and staff added to our enjoyment.
Thank you for the review and glad you had a great time- yes it is a perfect activity for kids and adults to do together which is hard to find in Nashville. I apologize the food didn't live up to it's usual 5/5 - come back anytime and will make it up to you
Everything was great! I just didn’t know the gratuity was already included so I double tipped. (There we’re only 3 of us on our ticket.)
Thank you glad everything was great, gratuity is only automatic for parties of 8 or more (standard) . Please let me know so can correct. Thank you
We had a very fun time!
Thank you !!! Come back anytime
The food was like bowling alley food. Not too good.
Thank you for coming, and sorry you felt that way, but our menu does not have pizza and hot dogs like bowling alleys and is a made from scratch Northwoods inspired menu. I wish we could have made a better impression for you.
Thank you for spending your 21st with us
They only play loud heavy metal music. Good pickle chips. Very limited menu. Honestly if they would mix up the music and vibe I would recommend. There is a fantastic mural on the outside with country music stars holding axes, but only dark metal music was played when we came. Did not appreciate.
We greatly apologize that was your experience. Our music is on a scheduled program to include all popular music genres and dark metal is not on it- there must have been a playlist issue and would have been happy to correct immediately . We apologize our staff didn't notice.
It was a fun time!
Had a great time with our group of 14! Our server was great - very sweet and on the ball - even let us do 6 separate checks which we appreciated. Food was good and we liked being able to throw axes while waiting and eating - and it was quiet enough in there that we could hear each other okay without screaming which was also nice. Highly recommend for groups looking to do something a little different in Nashville.
Thank you, glad you had a great time, come again anytime!
This place was fun and lively! The music was great and the ax throwing was a blast. Our service was unmatched.
We were so excited to visit Blu Ox! We come from Las Vegas, therefore we are well aware how much of a hit service industries have taken, and how overwhelmed kitchens can be. With that being said, the service we received on Friday the 15th was far less than mediocre. I had called earlier that afternoon and was told to make dining reservations on Open table. So, We made reservations to dine via Open Table. When we arrived, they told us the reservations on Open Table are only for the lane for throwing? We said okay, that’s fine. Grabbed a table, sat down, signed up to throw. The dining room and the throwing room were both under half capacity, with plenty of tables and chairs open. We all placed orders (basic dishes from the menu), and didn’t receive some of the ordered drinks, as well as the burgers were done wrong. It was very simple- bbq burger. On the menu it has no aioli. My father is allergic, so he can not have it on his burger, and the item description had no mention so he ordered his BBQ burger. It came back smothered with aioli, so he returned it and asked for another one. The next burger to be brought out also had aioli on it. We ahead to literally pull out the menu to show her it should not be on the burger. We were then questioned about whether we have ever worked the service industry, if we had seen how overwhelmed the kitchen was, and several other questions pushing the blame on us. We were not apologized to once, and were being treated as if we were out of line for requesting the correct standard menu item. This ruined the experience for my father, as it was a simple fix made into a big fuss. When we are spending $500+ on a bar food type meal and experience (for 6 people) we would expect much more than the service we were given. We will sadly not be returning to blu ox, and hopefully this review can shed some light on the problems that lie within the management/kitchen/service staff.
Thank you very much for bringing your experience to our attention. The service and issues you experienced are definitely not up to our high standard. This was very unfortunate and we apologize and we will investigate which staff were involved and how to correct to ensure doesn't happen again.
Fun place to hang out with a group of friends. All the staff really nice and bartender was great! Music on point and TV's available for sports fans.
Thank you so much! Glad you had a great time all around
The environment was laid back and fun. Considering it was a room filled with people throwing axes, it was surprisingly not too loud. There was a live performer but I was still able to communicate with my wife. Our server/coach was helpful and friendly. We definitely will be going back!
Thank you for your detailed review and glad you had a great time. We pride ourselves to be different then the usual honky-tonks on broadway. Come back anytime
It would’ve been perfect we were a large party and when we got there they said they couldn’t find our reservation. Then they were like it’s going to be an hour before the food comes out and we agreed to that but it almost felt like they said that for us to leave.
Thank you for the review and feedback, we apologize about the reservation issue.
Everyone loved it! Party of 12 and we all had a great time.
Had a large party for a corporate networking event. The whole team was AWESOME! Sam took excellent care of us. Amy was great. Outstanding service from everyone! Our clients were SO happy with our original evening. THANK YOU!
Thank you for the great review - we love to help large groups, parties, and corporate events have a great experience all-around
Had fun but it's more a bar than restaurant, so I am surprise it's listed on Open Table.
Menu bar food but hamburgers when good. Be aware! Need closed toe shoes if plan to do the axe throwing! They rent boots for $$. We ended up passing around who ever had closed toe shoes
Thank you, glad you had fun. And yes closed toed shoes are a must to keep all your little piggies.
Best place to release aggression.
THANK YOU - COULDN'T AGREE MORE
First time axe throwing and it was great fun!
