The food and service is always great. My favorites are the root chips and grilled chicken sandwich. Pizza is also good. The menu has a little bit of everything but with unique flares. In the summer it is definitely busier and we've waited for an...More

My first time at Rose's was a disappointment. The seasonal entree of the pork tenderloin sounded excellent but ended up being dry and nothing special. The menu stated it was marinated with an apple glace. It was grilled and that was it. No seasonings, no...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!

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.
