Welcome to The Backyard!

We are Brevard’s First Axe Throwing Venue! We also have indoor Bocce Ball, Corn Hole, Putterball, Darts, and Billiards. Located a half mile South of the Pineda Causeway on US1, we have food, beverages, and fun for everyone! Our venue offers fun indoor activities for guests of all in ages in Melbourne, Florida, and all of Brevard County.

Whether you want to enjoy games with friends, grab a bite to eat, join a league, celebrate a special occasion, host a company party or team building event - we have you covered at The Backyard Games and Eatery! With over 5000 square feet of air-conditioned indoor space, complete with our in-house food and beverage café, we can meet your fun and games needs - even if you are just trying to escape the Florida heat and/or rain!

Are you looking for a unique experience for a party, special event, or corporate team building? We offer custom packages that can include a variety of activities, meeting space on our deck with tv monitors for presentations, food & beverages, and even escape rooms!

If you can’t come to us and prefer to have a special event at your location, that’s okay, because we now have a mobile Axeperience that we can bring to you! Call us for more information: 321-426-7480.

    We decided to throw axes on the spur of the moment. Had a great time. I (eventually) was able to stick the axe 6 times in a row, which is probably a world record and makes me an honorary Viking.

  • My husband and I visited on a Saturday night to throw axes, and we are so glad we did! What a fun thing to do on date night. The staff were all super helpful, fun, and accommodating. We will be back!

    This place was awesome for axe throwing (thats all we did). We live out of state and were here visiting friends and threw. We would totally go back and throw next time we are in town again. Super fun, clean, and very nice staff.

Gotta love our staff working late last night to be ready for our first Glow and Throw in our new space tonight! ❤️
They’re not happy with the orange next to the pink either.

What do you think?
