We were on a two week road trip and had the most amazing dinner at Ophelia's. My husband and I both agreed that our dinners there were without compare. This was the third restaurant we experienced in the square of Independence. The others were fine but our dinner at Ophelia's was hard to forget. I had the fried chicken dinner... More

Celebrated a friend's birthday here as part of the trip to independence to see the Bingham Waggoner Museum. I love that they still take reservations. The Sunday brunch had a nice variety of salads, breakfast items and dinner items, along with a beautiful desert bar. The interior is a bit dark, but overall a very enjoyable experience.

We were on a quest to eat somewhere we have never tried before. We just happened to be in Independence,Mo. and wanted something that had a variety of choices for lunch. We decided that Ophelia's was the winner. And, boy, what a good choice this was. My daughter and I had the half club sandwich with the Caesar salad, and... More

After our tour of the Truman Library, we drove to the downtown area looking for a restaurant for a late lunch and found Ophelia's. We were very well pleased! The building is a restored place with lots of light and interesting nooks. Tables are placed apart enough that you can have a private conversation. The lunch menu offered items that... More

This quaint restaurant is located in historic area of Independence. Delicious food and great service! Would recommend for couples, family or large groups. We had a large group and they were accommodating. I ordered the seafood special (Grilled Salmon) and asked for a different side dish in substitute to the special and again, very accommodating without hassle. Would definitely dine... More

A friend and I were in Old Independence one day, on other business. We decided to stop somewhere for lunch. I had read about Ophelia's so we went there. Had sandwiches and small salads. Very nice. Good service and nice surroundings.

I didn't expect the quality of food and service in a town like Independence. I was in the area for roughly two weeks before stopping in and was far from impressed with the area until I dined at this restaurant. The food was amazing, service was perfect, and wine was quality. I suggest going to this place on half price... More

Overlooking the historic Independence Square, Ophelia's offers an infusion of cultural flavors in an eclectic American menu. The steaks, seafood, duck, and lamb are a few of our guest's favorite items. Layers of flavors contribute to all of the dishes we serve. You will find the atmosphere casual, yet romantic at the same time. Ophelia's in Independence is truly a gem off the beaten path.
