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.

I've been going to Rose's off and on for the past 15 years and it's still one of my favorite restaurants in GR. The food is always good. I last had the Mac and Cheese - yummy! The service is always great. And the atmosphere can't be beat. Outdoor seating in summer is the best in GR!

Popular watering hole/restaurant in East Grand Rapids. Decent food and drinks. Picturesque locale. They have some good deals on their late afternoon happy hours. Smashing to down a beer or two on the deck during summer. A downside is it can be crowded, especially on Friday evenings.

Our son just moved to Grand Rspids, and we celebrated with a fun relaxed brunch - time meal. Attentive service and perfectly prepared food. If there is a wait. Wait. It's worth it just to look at the photos from the time when Bub Rose made Carmel corn in a copper kettle.

My most recent visit to Rose's was with two co-workers that both have different requirements that make choosing a restaurant a bit of a pain, but both of them left happy.

This former pop corn and hamburger stand on the lake started in the early 1900's. Now it's a restaurant with multiple food choices, good drinks. The individual pizza was a winner as was the turkey/cranberry sandwich. Compliments were given for the salmon salad. Deserts were big and delicious. Left with a feeling I would not be hungry for a long... More

Even though it was still pretty in the fall, this location would be amazing in the summer. The service was very friendly, the food was good, and the menu selection was varied, with even some gluten free options available. I would definitely recommend it to others.
