Description: Rose's trancendently combines many individually unique facets to create a richly complete dining experience. Whether it's the storied history of the location, the beautiful lakeside location, the gorgeous new three season deck, our fiercely loyal customers or the award quality food, Rose's speaks to almost anyone on some emotional level. The menu draws its inspiration from a multitude of influences including Mediterranean, Italian, and Casual American. The air of community and contentment is present abound, as you'll lazily gaze upon sail boats and picnickers in the park as you enjoy the best food and atmosphere Grand Rapids has to offer. Don't miss out on the magic that is Rose's.

The view and setting is beautiful. The service was good. The menu looks and sounds good, but my husband and I both ordered a dinner - I got salmon and he got walleye. The vegetables that came with were turnips and root vegetables and were hard. The potatoes were hard. The fish was good, though. Looking around, we realized we... More

Rose's is an utterly charming restaurant whose corporate cookicutter food does not live up to the space in which it is served. It's a real shame because it has so much potential.

I've lived in the Grand Rapids area over thirty years and can't believe I've never been to Rose's. It's somewhat of a landmark here. Stopped by for lunch with another couple. We sat on the patio overlooking the lake on a beautiful fall day. Arrived about 11:30 and were seated immediately. No problem. By the time we left there was... More

Wanting to avoid the crowds downtown due to Art-Prize we decided on Roses. This is the second time we have been to Roses. Food is just as good as last time. The wait for a table was 1.5-2 hours - and we chose first avail for a table of two. Lucky for us we ended up being seated on the... More

Couldn't have been happier with their seasonal menu. The atmosphere was abuzz with energy from the other patrons...however, the overall experience was one of quaint relaxation and serenity. I was happy to find a non-alcoholic Ginger Beer...a unique addition to the menu...and enjoyed it with my dinner. Service was good, food was good, but to view of Reed's Lake can't... More

Great food and great atmosphere. The goat cheese fondue they offer for the chips is unique and very good! We come here for work lunches and everyone is always happy with their meal.

Visited after reading the review on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. Sat right on the lakefront and enjoyed the walleye and salmon entrees. The peanut butter chocolate pie comes highly recommended!!! Staff was attentive and friendly. As of 8-22-14 there is road construction which made getting there a little tricky.

I highly recommend Rose's on Reeds Lake whenever you are in the Grand Rapids area. Any of the food any of us have ever had has been excellent... right down to the oil served with the bread basket– it's spiced just right. The hardest part is deciding what to choose! Excellent salads– get the chardonnay dressing– wonderful sandwiches with root... More

The location is fantastic and on a nice day, dining outside would be recommended. I ordered the Potato Flake Horseradish Crusted Walleye. Walleye is a mild fish and local. I didn't taste much horseradish in the preparation. It comes with root vegetables that were well prepared. Our server recommended the carrot cake which we ordered. It is a very generous... More
