Very cheap prices for snacks. The atmosphere was fun. My friends and I had some great laughs that night. Definitely recommend this bowling alley for future occasions.

Small old-school lanes with a fun & interesting crowd. Would've been nice if 10-pin was available for moonlight bowling, or if the main level lighting could be made a bit more appealing for evening social groups. Sign-in process could benefit with some streamlining - took nearly 30 mins to get started due to front desk congestion (maybe online names/shoe size pre-registration with bookings). Staff very friendly and helpful nonetheless.

The staff was helpful & nice ! They need more glow in the dark bowling balls! My kids had fun! Great that they had gutter blockers. Pizza sauce on the pizza was quite salty but nice crust.

Rolling strikes is in the Marino family’s blood. The family has presided over Grandview Lanes for three generations, ever since Louis Marino established the alley back in 1947. In those days, the pins had to be set by hand, a task Louis's son, George, remembers all too well. As he told Westender reporter Mary Frances Hill, "You'd have 40 women bowling during the day (in the 1950s), and only two pin setters […]. So we'd run around like crazy."

Today, machines act as the alley’s pin setters, but the Marinos are still around and running the show. George's daughter, Tammy, manages the modernized alley, where automatic scoring makes things easier for a younger generation that has never seen a real wooden pencil. Some things haven't changed though. Bowlers can still visit the lunch counter once run by George's mother, fuelling up between frames with burgers or pizzas laden with a dozen different toppings. And, of course, the game remains relatively unchanged. Downstairs, guests choose between 5-pin or 10-pin bowling, and upstairs, black lights and neon wall murals set the psychedelic stage for the sport's most modern update—glow bowling.

Aside from providing a hub for clean, family-friendly fun, Grandview Lanes actively supports the community by helping the fundraising efforts of organizations such as the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and The Kensington Foundation for Animals in Crisis.
