This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and was a bit let down. Ophelia's on Siesta Key is a first class restaurant but here they seemed to have dropped the ball. The soup was fair, the meal was bland as was the pasta sauce. The service was fine, the restaurant is nice but not special in... More

Tucked away on the corner of a little strip center right smack dab in the middle of downtown Nokomis, you'll find Ophelia's. We don't tell many folks about this place fearing that those we tell will tell others and before long, the danged place will be as crowded as all those other restaurants jammed with "snow birds" during our Winter...

First off, I'm a little confused with Ophelia's. It is a pasta house but it offers a selection of seafood.....so take your pick. We are from New England and were looking for a place to have a good old-fashioned New England lobster roll without having to make it at home....so on the hunt for a good lobster roll and having...

We stopped for dinner after reading good reviews. Their happy hour was the best part. We were both disappointed in the sauce, not what we expected. We both walked out saying we would rate it a 5 out of 10. Probably not returning.

I am very sorry to see that you were disappointed. We're curious as to what sauce displeased you. The majority of our customers love our Marinara so much that we sell it to-go. We strive to be at the top of our game so any more info would be appreciated. You could contact us at info@opheliaspastahouse.net if you wish to. More

I just went out for a family dinner, and i must say the food and service was spectacular! From the lobster to the caesar salad to the key lime pie made from scratch, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere was very soothing and intimate. I am told that a lady named "Kelly" made our key lime pie and brownie... More

Absolutely great 'family run' (i.e., non chain restaurant). Friends just introduced us to this super secret. Worth a trip from Sarasota or Bradenton, 20+ miles away... Extensive menu, great wine values, and a generous happy hour too... A real keeper.

Great little spot in a Publix Grocery Store strip. The food is always good, and the wine prices are fantastic. A great happy hour!

Your dog is welcomed and will feel at home at this unique pet-friendly restaurant. Our dog enjoys sitting next to us in a booth, while we enjoy a delicious meal. Plenty of water and treats for your pet, too. Good service, good food, at a good price, too! Bring your doggie along and everyone will be happy with the atmosphere... More
