Recently went back to Rose's for business lunch. I was impressed! From my last visit in 2013, the restaurant did attempt to contact me (which I do respect). I make it a rule to not accept any favors or 'freebies' from any restaurant and did not contact them. I did decide to return. Upon return, I found that the food... More

What isn't there to like about Rose's (ok the wait can be long, true). The food is always delicious and the view is outstanding. Never had a bad meal. Love that you can dine on the outdoor patio in the winter (covered and heated of course). Don't be impatient when you go, b/c you will wait for a table but... More

We took my teenage daughter here to celebrate her birthday and all had great meals. My lake perch was outstanding - fresh, not at all greasy with to much coating, and served piping hot. Others in our party had salmon, shrimp and scallops, and a burger. All the food was excellent. The bruschetta appetizer was delicious too. A nice atmosphere... More

Rose's is an established restaurant icon in East Grand Rapids and sort of a local hangout for the pedestrian area of the City. The menu changes with the season and they do a nice job of mixing ingredients and keeping things fresh and interesting. It is always clean and the waitstaff is well-trained and attentive. The peak meal times are... More

We had dinner. the view over the lake as the sun set was great. Wait staff was very helpful and the food came quickly. depending on time of day and day or the week then can be a wait to be seated.

Three visits this winter. Atmosphere is warm and relaxed. Pleasant friendly waiters. Fair drink pours. Outstanding tuna entree and fresh mussels. No disappointments on any dish so far. We cannot say the same for a number of other places we are trying out this winter.

Great atmosphere - great menu - great location. We eat at Roses 2 - 5 times a month. Always quality food - large wine selection - friendly service. We have been going regularly for at least 15 years. It does get crowded but we are never in a hurry and enjoy our experience each time. If you are in a... More

All of the food is good, we have always been happy with the service and the view of the lake is fantastic especially in the summer. One of our favorite places.

I like Rose's. OK, so sometimes it takes a long time to be seated and sometimes the service is lacking and sometimes the food is just ok. But the lake is ALWAYS on, the seating in the summer especially takes full advantage of it and even does in the winter though not in the open air of summer breezes (thank... More
