Ophelia is a small town treat

Great food right across from the Courthouse. Large place, perfect for groups or tours in special rooms, or eat in the regular dining area. Loved the chicken, the pork and for dessert - apple crumble and bread pudding.

I have dined at Ophelia's periodically over the past two years. Their stuffed pork chop, when available, is awesome! They are currently serving a different style of pork chop which I found to be excellent in its own right. Two weeks ago, after experiencing a terrible steak a a supposed fine dining establishment on the west end of Independence, Englewood,... More

Went here to feast the holiday favorites without having a dinner and leftovers at home. They had all the traditional holiday trimmings from Turkey to ham and it was cooked just right. I was glad we took the family here and had a great traditional holiday meal cooked with class and served with style.

I ate at Ophelia's with 15-20 neighbor ladies. I started with a cup of despacho that was the size of a bowl. It was very good as well as filling. I also ordered their special of halibut served on fingerling potatoes with capers and broccoli. It was so-o delicious! I finished with their strawberry short cakes that was also outstanding....

My husband is kind of a picky eater. When he saw his BLT, I thought we were in trouble because the T is a sweet cherry tomato marmalade. He loved it! We even had to return the next day for lunch so I could try it. Service was also outstanding and the atmosphere was nice. We will return the next... More

Higher level of appointments and updated menu, BUT very reasonable! We enjoyed the choices for half a [huge] sandwich and soup (the chicken vegetable was really good) or salad (I had the Caesar-very good).

The quality of food is amazing. Sure, you have to wait a little while and is not the place you want to be if you're in a hurry. Good food takes time to prepare and they prepare it to order. Rest and relax and enjoy the food and ambience. If you're in a hurry, go somewhere else. We ordered the... More

We really like this place... we bring out of town guest here for the brunch on Sunday... it is not cheap but it is really worth it. Once of the best brunches in the US.

My husband and I enjoyed a special meal here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had been wanting to try this restaurant for some time (it's a member of locally-owned restaurants called Kansas City Originals which we like to seek out.) It's located on the historic Independence Square. We had made reservations, but were able to be seated even though... More

I met ten other friends at Ophelia's for lunch. I had a bowl of soup and half a sandwich, and it was still expensive! The soup was good, and the sandwich was just ok. I suggested going there, but I won't be going back soon.
