While visiting from Alabama. I decide to use trip advisor and attempt to find somewhere on the water to enjoy dinner. WOW!!! This place was impressive! Parking was congested due to the weekend but no issues. However, use the front door, not the side door....More

Very attractive restaurant, whether seated inside or out. Also service was good throughout our meal. We had the perch and both thought it was quite good, however the fries were overly salty. Would go again when in the area.

So glad to hear that you had an overall great time dining outside on our deck for lunch. Our Reuben Sandwich is a house favorite. Next time, try the Cranberry Turkey or Roasted Portabella Wrap. Both are two great choices as well.

Only for large parties 6 or more. There is a nice park right next door with a great view of Reed's Lake. If the weather is good, the time will pass quickly in the serene atmosphere there.

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.
