Please, please tell someone in charge of the menu to put the original walleye dish back on. You can't call a dish a "signature " when you keep changing it. I don't even want to go there anymore. Makes no sense.

Rose's has long been my fave restaurant in the GR area for many reasons-- wait staff, food, atmosphere, reasonable prices. I've had my favorites throughout many years, and thank goodness they don't mess too much with their menu. My chief complaint, and the reason they only garner four stars from me, is that the quality of one of their signature... More

Thank you for being a long time loyal customer! I am sorry for the disappointment in the tournedo on your most recent visit. While we have changed the size down from two 4 oz medallions to two 3 oz medallions, you could always ask for a third medallion to be added to the dish to make it a total of... More

A very appealing venue however the menu is a bit limited in the protein department. Fresh ingredients nicely prepared, friendly , I think $4.50 for a single shrimp to add to the salad is a bit crazy.

A good place for friends to meet for a meal. I have usually gone for lunch, a good menu. Gets quite busy so would advise going about 1.30 or earlier than typical lunch time. Parking lot is small without a lot of room to maneuver car, street parking available, safe neighborhood. Serve liquor.

The location of Rose's is perfect, they have indoor seating, covered patio with fireplace seating or outdoor seating. We sat indoors but we had a table near the windows so we were able to see the lake. The view is pure Michigan! The interior is roomy and even if really busy you wouldn't feel cramped. Now because I read some... More

I really enjoyed my fish tacos. The fish was tender and the sauce was very good. I'm glad I visited, but for the price the menu is under impressive. The space lacks inspiration as well.

Evert thing was very good except the metal tables inside . There was food in the decorative metal. This showed a lack of care cleaning these type tables. It was a real turn off sitting there looking at stale food,

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.
