We had a delightful and creative dinner at Ophelia's. The menu while not extensive was imaginative and thoughtful. Preparation and service were excellent. The decor is chic, modern, comfortable and attractive.

I have visited Ophelia's many times and it just seems to get better and better. On my most recent trip, I stayed in a lovely room upstairs and ate in the restaurant several times for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Sunday brunch is especially elegant but the regular menus are also extensive and interesting. I especially liked the seafood dishes, and... More

We saw this place as we passed by on our way to take a tour of the Harry S. Truman home and presidential library. It has an elegant decor and a number of interesting menu items. The pistachio encrusted salmon was particularly good.

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.

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.
