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.

“Great view and great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

I ordered the crab cakes and while they weren't the best in the world (we're in the wrong area of the country for the best of the best) they were quite good for Michigan. The aioli served with the crab cakes was outstanding. I enjoyed the views of the lake. They also give you a cup of caramel corn with your check - a nice touch.

“What a GREAT dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

My husband and I were visiting in Grand Rapids and took our niece and nephew out to dinner along with their three children ages 8,7, and 4. We had a wonderful time. Our waitress couldn't have been more accommodating. The restaurant knows how to welcome little kids. The kids got coloring sheets and crayons upon sitting down. The children's menu - both for dinner and dessert - was just perfect for them. Our nephew and I had the Gorganzola Torenados, our niece had the salmon over risotto, and my husband had a delicious fish.
The whole meal was a great experience. And the little taste of their homemade caramel corn is just the sweetest topper after the meal.

“I love this place...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Located on Reeds lake, this is a nice place to relax with good food. Located right on the water, outside deck and also a screened in porch area with a fireplace to take you into fall in comfort. The food is good, especially fond of the calamari. Nothing chewy with this dish! Highly recommend!

“Great food, great scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

My husband, parents and I came here on a whim. We were in the area and had no idea where to go, and this was the closest to us according to Yelp. Huge surprise! We chose to sit outside on the deck even though it was chilly out. They have ample space heaters out there that kept us plenty warm. It was really beautiful on the lake. They also have seating available indoors as well as in a covered patio area. We found that the deck was the quietest dining space. We started the meal with the root chips with goat cheese fondue. Delicious! Highly recommend it. We all ended up ordering fish dishes, and were all pleased. I had the bibb salad with grilled salmon. I was surprised at how tasty the salad was. My husband ordered the parmesan whitefish, which I tasted, and it was equally delicious. One thing we noticed is that each of our dishes came with different sides. And the sides were very unique and fresh. They also had a great selection of beer and wine. We even splurged on dessert. My husband and I shared the vanilla creme brulee which came with fresh strawberries and my parents shared the seasonal cheesecake which was lemon/raspberry. Both were great. We even had great service. All in all it was a great experience. The only problem we had was with the valet service. We pulled up and stopped at the designated area. The valet guy just sat there. Never got up to come assist us. So, we ended up parking ourselves down the road and walked to the restaurant. He was eager to help the gentleman that pulled up in the BMW behind us though.

“Lovely Lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Perfect day for dining on the lake- great ambiance, staff could not have been more attentive. Food was delicious. Had a salad as my entree, delicious with just the right amount of dressing. Didn't see the bill as I was a guest, but all was great!
