We chose to have our wedding reception at Ophelia's and then have our wedding party stay at the Inn upstairs. I have to say everything was perfect, the banquet managers did a fantastic job working with us on everything. The food was amazing, everyone could not praise the food enough. We had the beef tenderloin, the chicken with goat cheese... More

Ok, we were eating in the restaurant, as I attempted check out the restaurant on Trip Advisor. There I find out it is an Inn too. So my co-worker boldly ask if it was true and Molly our server said there are eight rooms upstairs. My co-worker asked for a tour and we were taken upstairs by Matthew for a... More

We were visiting Independence towards the end of a midwest vacation, and saw Ophelia's on the list of restaurants downtown that was given to us at the Truman Library and Museum. We're so glad we chose to have lunch there! The prices were reasonable, and the food was excellent! I've been on a low-carb diet for 6 months, but the... More

The half club sandwich and salad was very filling with enough turkey for a whole sandwich! My husband's shrimp tempura with plum sauce over baby greens was an appetizer, but plenty for lunch. We would go back any time we could. Just sorry we are leaving today.

We stayed at Ophelia's for a week long church conference at the Community of Christ in Independence. The rooms here are excellent, great beds and very spacious. The location is right on the square in downtown Independence. We enjoyed the free breakfast what was cooked and then served buffet style. This is a great place to stay if you are... More

Stopped in for a simple lunch and was pleasently surprised. All three of us really enjoyed our meal and our server was pleasent and swift. The place wasn't busy, but we got our food quickly and it was clearly fresh. If you're in the area, I definately recommend.

Went with my wife and met with friends on Friday night, our server was excellent and was pleased with the live guitar and piano jazz playing. The food was great! The "brick" chicken was very well prepared and succulent, we were able to have great conversation and enjoy the low light and ambiance of the dark wood decor and professional... More

We have eaten at Ophelia's several times over the past dozen years and have stayed at the inn on three different occasions. It's a real gem of a place, right on the redeveloped Independence (MO) square. The courthouse with its Harry Truman statue is right across the street as is the soda fountain where Truman worked. The Truman home is... More

I have heard many times about how great this restaurant is. Well, all said is correct! Charming, quiet inside. Excellent service and truly fine food at reasonable prices I must say though we were out off by terribly loud music coming forth from the restaurants outside speakers. Sooo awful. Come to find out it is the choice of the owner.... More
