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.

We were on a quest to eat somewhere we have never tried before. We just happened to be in Independence,Mo. and wanted something that had a variety of choices for lunch. We decided that Ophelia's was the winner. And, boy, what a good choice this was. My daughter and I had the half club sandwich with the Caesar salad, and... More

After our tour of the Truman Library, we drove to the downtown area looking for a restaurant for a late lunch and found Ophelia's. We were very well pleased! The building is a restored place with lots of light and interesting nooks. Tables are placed apart enough that you can have a private conversation. The lunch menu offered items that... More

This quaint restaurant is located in historic area of Independence. Delicious food and great service! Would recommend for couples, family or large groups. We had a large group and they were accommodating. I ordered the seafood special (Grilled Salmon) and asked for a different side dish in substitute to the special and again, very accommodating without hassle. Would definitely dine... More

Description
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.
