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 apple glace and did not taste as though it had been marinated. My husband's chose... More

Rose's has great food and service and is a staple to the reeds lake area in east Grand Rapids. The staff is friendly and the food speaks for itself. A great place to come in for a winter warm up or in the summer for a nice patio drink. Don't forget the Carmel corn that comes with the bill, my... More

Thanks Allison. We love our spot on Reed's Lake right in East Grand Rapids. Our community is awesome, and so are the views we get to see from our patio and deck. From sunny days on the patio and deck or sitting by a fireplace inside or on the patio in the winter. We want you to feel like you... More

We like to go a bike around Reed's Lake, and this time, we decided to stop and see if we could get a nice outdoor table at Rose's, for a late lunch. We got a table right by the water, and had a really nice, romantic time!! The salad was crisp and fresh, and the pizza was a work of... More

My fiance and i just happened to be looking at a local publication to find this wonderful place. After all it is a Gilmore restaurant, so why not take the chance! Must make a reservation on the weekends and the place indeed was packed. Romantic atmosphere after a bit of a wait, was totally worth it. The food and service... More

My Fiance and I needed a spot to relax and celebrate some good news after a doctor visit downtown GR and I thought of Rose's. 1/20/17. We were able to sit near the fireplace on the porch overlooking the frozen lake and be pampered by the lovely service of our waitress, who was so very sweet! We shared an appetizer... More

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.

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

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.
