We've tried all three meals at Ophelia's and they are all great. Big selection for dinner and no disappointments. We especially like their reasonably priced breakfasts and the complimentary mimosas. Good prices. Great food.

Ophelias is a spin off from a famous Siesta Key restaurant, long known for excellent food. The owner is very hands on, friendly and welcoming to humans and dogs. With a special area devoted to four legged friends and a menu to match, you can dine with your pooch on very reasonably priced entrees. Great Italian as well as seafood,... More

We decided to try Ophelia's Pasta House because it is dog friendly, and was very close to our hotel. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised. Our server, Helena, was great! She thoroughly explained the menu and all questions we had, and helped us choose great meals. I was raving about how much I loved the Lobster Bisque soup, when she told... More

You can't beat the breakfast deal here. You can eat a nice breakfast with free Bloody Mary for under $5.00. Good service and nice staff. I haven't tried them for lunch yet, but the menu looks good.

Very pleasantly surprised tonight. Have been meaning to try this restaurant for sometime and made it for the first tonight. Couldn't believe how dog friendly the restaurant is. We were seated outside and the first thing our server did was bring water and chicken for the dogs. Needless to say, the dogs were very happy and behaved our entire meal.... More

Their 2 x 2 x 2 breakfast with complimentary drinks is what might draw you there first (2 pancakes, two eggs, two meats). But once there you'll see that your dogs are special guests too!! A large patio and enclosed canvassed area is provided for you and your pets, not to mention the great indoors as well!!

We had a reservation as we visited the restaurant on St Patricks day as expected it to be busy. Although it was fairly full when we arrived we were ignored for a good ten minutes. At least three waitresses walked past up whilst we were waiting and said nothing to us. Finely one of the waitresses did say that the... More
