Rose's has been my "go-to" restaurant for decades. My 20 something kids loved it when they were small and love to return whenever they are back in Michigan. It is a cozy restaurant that always has great food and the menu is updated on a regular basis. I am somewhat of a health nut, and Rose's delivers in that area... More

We were greeted promptly , as the host was not there, by a server. She asked about location and table type which was kind. Service was very attentive. Food was great as always. Food served on time. I'll say my rating has improved. Ecotour36.

What a great surprise! We were invited by friends to have dinner on a snowy Michigan Saturday. We couldn't have been more pleased! Warm cozy atmosphere, great service, and very nice staff. Even the view across the frozen lake was pretty!

Thanks, and so great to hear that you had such a fantastic experience. Our view over looking Reed's Lake is beautiful no matter the season. But is nice to sit by the fire and enjoy the frozen water outside. Stop back in soon! More

We ate at Rose's last week. It was several days after it snowed. The restaurant wasn't too busy, but the tiny parking lot was totally full. We had to park way, way down the street. The sidewalks were a slippery, sloppy mess even several days after it quit snowing. It's East Grand Rapids. They should be able to afford to... More

Thanks for stopping in. We know our parking lot is small, we do offer complimentary valet on the busier nights to help with the congestion of the lot, Wed-Sat nights. Anyway, so glad that you all really enjoyed your dinners and the beautiful view overlooking the lake. We hope to see you again soon! More

I found Rose's yesterday when after 38 years of coming to the city of my bride we took her parents for what we hoped would be a special meal and memory. Rose's exceeded my expectation. The food was terrific and Annie who served us with a smile and great attitude only added to the ambiance. Don't miss this GR gem... More

First you need to realize that I don't get to eat out as often as I'd like too. Then there's that factor that people like to try out different restaurants. If I had my way I'd be eating at Rose's once or twice a month. So....... Because I don't eat there as often as I like - and it's almost... More

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.

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.
