Rose's is just wonderful, especially if you can sit outside! The setting is great, the food choices are to satisfy any hunger and enjoyment desires, the staff is outstanding, it's difficult to find something to criticize - well, maybe parking on a busy evening! We enjoyed dinner entrees that included the potatoe crusted walleye and gorgonzola tournedos. Both are enthusiastically... More

We had a very efficient and effective waitress here. She was so good and si was the selection of Michigan beer and dishes to choose from.

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.

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

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.
