I overheard a gentleman raving about this restaurant while I was in the lobby of my hotel. I went to dinner alone as I am in town for business. I was lucky enough to get a seat outside with a nice view of Reeds Lake. I was dressed business casual but did see many people in casual wear. I ordered... More

I met three of my friends for dinner and we had great table out on the deck, right next to the water. Service was excellent, and my chicken pesto pizza was delicious.

Really no matter the season, warm or cold, the views from the deck, patio or inside are awesome! We love that we get to share them with our guests! Ice skaters in the winter to paddle board yoga in the summer. We love it all! More

Had a wonderful evening with friends at Rose's. The patio overlooking Reed's lake is the perfect place to whittle away the evening with wonderful food and conversation. The veggie enchiladas we the perfect amount of spice. I look forward to coming back during my next visit.

Rose's is the long standing go to restaurant in East Grand Rapids. Good food, a nice atmosphere and great views help to make it a good choice for a relaxing meal while still being in the city. Root chips are a staple. Great salads and a nice space just to come for drinks as well.

We love that we are in EGR and right on Reed's Lake! We love our community and the history that comes along with the building and area. Root Chips are definitely a must try when dining. Beets, potatoes, sweet potatoes sliced and deep fried into chips made daily in house. And then of course you can't forget the Red Pepper... More

My husband and I took another couple (from out of town) to Rose's on a Saturday night. To sit on the patio we had to wait ~10 minutes. Just enough time to order a drink and have a sip. We had the crab cake as an appetizer and it was fantastic. The rest of the group enjoyed the layered dip.... More

Thanks for stopping in and bringing your out of town friends in to enjoy the food and views. We love the daily views all year long, and love it even more to be able to share it with our guests. The crab cake is so refreshing with the crisp apple slaw, and the Ahi Tuna has always been a favorite!... More

Rose's is right next to Reed's lake. The architecture of the building takes advantage of the nice view of the lake. The food is good and reasonably priced. The service is good. It is a very popular restaurant, so it might be wise to make reservations.

Thanks for the great review! Our view from the deck/patio during the summer months is amazing! Definitely worth the wait. While you are waiting, you can have a drink in the bar or on our couch on the patio, or take your pager and wait in the park. More

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.
