Our Story

Just recently we were thrilled to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with over five-hundred family, friends and customers - what an exciting benchmark for our family! Five decades ago, our dad Joe began by partnering with four friends and overseeing the groundbreaking what was once the Hotel Scandia in 1962. What first was expected to become a bowling alley has turned into a popular event destination in Garwood, NJ. Over the years, countless members of the Scalzadonna family have made The Westwood, their home away from home, from our children to our grandmother Lena, they have all taken an active role in making The Westwood what it is today.


To say our family takes this business personally is an understatement. We strive to make each event for our customers as special as those we’ve held for our own family.Today, we are proud that The Westwood’s personal, family-oriented approach continues to make us the first choice for families like yours - and we’re looking forward to serving you soon.
