Went bowling for a couple hours out of the house with no kids. Food is pretty good. Place is clean and modern. A bit pricey but not outrageous. Seems to be geared more towards kids/family. Has a nice bar and restaurant. Staff is friendly and helpful. I would recommend Rule 3 for fun if you're not on a budget.

Rule3 is a great family place. Very friendly and helpful staff. Tasty food. If I had to complain about something it would be the price, kinda high.

Rule 3 is located on Windmiller Drive and borders a residential neighborhood. It offers a wide variety of family fun -- bowling, sand volleyball, arcades, etc. The atmosphere reminds me of the infamous Dave & Buster's. Food is hamburgers, sliders, pizza, chicken wings, etc. It's a good place to take the family for an evening of fun.

Everything was just okay, nothing special and a little expensive. We spent several hours at the restaurant due to no open bowling for over 3 hours on a Saturday. The service was mediocre at best - we waited a long time for our food and had to find the manager for drink refills. The pizza & wings were very good.... More

Bowling, games and pizza. Special price on bowling. One hour for up to party of 6 for 16.00. Plus shoe rental. The alley had gutter ball bumpers that raise and lower based on person bowling. Pizza was ok, beer was cold. Games were all control by cards.

Good service, we bowled and the server brought apps to our lane and kept our drinks refilled without having to ask. Family fun for all ages whether its mini bowling, adult bowling, game arcade, private game room, or full bar with tvs, this place has something for everyone!

9 of us spent about 2 hours here. Not a very large bowling alley but they also have a large bar & restaurant & game room. We enjoyed the pizzas & drinks. The kids loved the bowling including our granddaughter who is 3. Great way to spend time with your family

Service is spotty; now I know why. No less than six wait staff congregated in the back of the bar area. Laughing, sharing things on Facebook and having a grand time. Yet the customer waits for a server. It explains the high prices.

Fun place to bowl or play other games! Large area for dining as well as spacious bar. Many drink choices and great beer selection. Tasty burgers, pizza, wings, and the choose three platter of fries with different toppings and dipping sauces is yummy!
