Great food! Even better service!!

Four of us stopped here for lunch after visiting the Harry Truman Museum and Library. The service is not the speediest but the food was worth waiting for. Two of us had salads and ordered the small size. When they came, they were huge. Could easily have feed two ladies. The guys in our group shared the smoked shrimp and... More

Sometimes a great restaurant can define itself by how it handles a tough situation- when they're short on staff, or when the food isn't quite right. When the establishment is poorly staffed, and poorly managed, it becomes crystal clear as well. This place is hurting (or at least it was yesterday) Our department (10 people) had lunch here yesterday and... More

This place was amazing from the Wine selection to dessert ! We met there after making reservations for a Saturday evening. Nice quiet atmosphere with a pianist playing great classic and soft Jazz tunes. The dishes we ordered were prepared to perfection and the aromas and savory flavor of each outstanding. The Smoked Shrimp and grits appetizer was the table... More

If you are looking for a fabulous meal while in Kansas City don't miss out on Ophelia's. It is a hidden treasure in the KC metro area, nestled in the quaint Independence Square. I have been here many times, mostly for lunch with friends, and it never disappoints. Recently my daughter was visiting from Chicago and we wanted to go... More

Having dined here several times, the food is always excellent, and the menu is varied. Four of us had dinner here on a Saturday evening. Nice setting, ample booth and live piano music. Our server was ready to take our order before we were even in the booth! He returned two minutes later to see if we had decided. We... More

The Inn is very nice clean and large room stocked with drinks and snacks and all you would possibly need from tooth brush to shaving cream and razor even a sewing kit, nice flat screen television, nice setting area and desk and chair. Brunch on Sunday morning was awesome, as well as... More

We went there for a birthday dinner and it was on a Monday night. The place was not very busy but even my son who doesn't say much about places said he like the ambiance. The food was great. It was a little disappointing that they were out of one of their soups that was on the menu as well... More

A very pleasant surprise when we were in Independence to visit the Truman Library and home when we stopped by this pleasant small place on the Square. The story is that the couple that opened it took a big gamble and luckily 15 other businesses followed their lead and the Square was reborn into a flourishing business community. The food... More

My Spouse and I celebrated our 26th Anniversary at Ophelia's based soley on reviews in Trip Advisor. Y'all didn't steer us wrong. The restaurant was fairly well empty on the Monday night we were there but service was quick and attentive, the menu was pretty inventive and overall we had a very good evening. We both had seafood dishes -... More
