This is a classy restaurant on the Independence Square. The ambiance is nice, and they often will have a piano player playing during the meal (including over the lunch hour). I have never had a bad meal.

We took my mother here for her birthday and we were not disappointed. The food here is simply amazing. Simply unexpected for downtown Independence. Be sure to give Ophelia's a try - you won't be disappointed.

Great food and lovely waitress; prices, however, are more New York than Independence. In any case, the best restaurant I have found during my 4 days in Independence

We happened upon this restaurant when we asked a local for a very good restaurant. We had the kale salad which was delicious as was the portobello appetizer. We ordered the halibut which I thought was a little dry but my husband loved it. The succotash as a bit salty. The wine list was excellent.

Very very nice updated food beverage and room. Service spot on with good advice. Craft cocktails nicely done. Convenient location right on Independence Square perfect for a Truman visit. Small plates available if you don't want to eat a heavy meal. A very pleasing experience after a day of sightseeing.

We were on a two week road trip and had the most amazing dinner at Ophelia's. My husband and I both agreed that our dinners there were without compare. This was the third restaurant we experienced in the square of Independence. The others were fine but our dinner at Ophelia's was hard to forget. I had the fried chicken dinner... More

Celebrated a friend's birthday here as part of the trip to independence to see the Bingham Waggoner Museum. I love that they still take reservations. The Sunday brunch had a nice variety of salads, breakfast items and dinner items, along with a beautiful desert bar. The interior is a bit dark, but overall a very enjoyable experience.

Thank wisteriabarb

Overlooking the historic Independence Square, Ophelia's offers an infusion of cultural flavors in an eclectic American menu. The steaks, seafood, duck, and lamb are a few of our guest's favorite items. Layers of flavors contribute to all of the dishes we serve. You will find the atmosphere casual, yet romantic at the same time. Ophelia's in Independence is truly a gem off the beaten path.
