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.

Relaxed Place in East Grand Rapids

An East Grand Rapids tradition. This is a nice place for a relaxing meal, with a view of Reed's Lake.It is often busy, but if you don't have a reservation, you can stroll around the lake with one of their pagers. We will be back.

Always good food and menu has several items to choose from including sandwiches, salads and dinners. There is usually a wait for a table, but the wait is worth it. Only drawbackis parking is very limited.

We stopped here for lunch and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The wait for a table outside on the patio overlooking Reed's Lake was 30 minutes and since we were hungry we snagged a table indoors. The service is fast, courteous, friendly and spot on. The food scrumptious -- we ordered from the lunch menu, sandwich and salad.The value was... More

I have memories of Rose's going back to my childhood. Good Memories. Each time I come to Rose's I want to have an experience that matches those memories. More often then not I am disappointed.

My husband and I brought Mom here for an early Mother's Day meal as this place is one of her favorites.

This restaurant is located on Reeds Lake, so the scenery is lovely. However parking is quite a problem so I would suggest valet. The atmosphere is warm, yet loud. Open beams & lots of tables. The menu is very interesting, the prices reasonable. The sandwiches are huge & quite tasty. All in all a nice spot to eat

I've eaten at Roses many, many times over the years, but just have never reviewed it. Today, I change that. Roses is a terrific restaurant in a terrific setting. Everything I've had there is very good, including the drinks. During the summer, overlooking the water, is especially nice. The service and food are always reliably good! I highly recommend it.

Thanks for the great review! We too enjoy our view and are looking forward to the summer and summer time drinks, like our Rose's Lemonade. Try one next time if you haven't already. See you again soon! More

This is by far my most favorite place to eat. I've never had a bad meal. The hamburgers and Turkey burgers are amazing, no need to add condiments....in fact I highly recommend you don't.

My dinner at Rose's was the first of two mediocre meals in Grand Rapids. I can't comment on the lake view - I'm sure it is lovely, but on a cold night in early March it just seemed like more frozen tundra. So let's talk about food. I ordered the pork chop - what it said on the menu was:... More
