Had the salmon and salad which was tasty. My food experience has always been positive but service the last few times has been terribly slow and unfriendly. Very pricey for a below average experience.

We have had Sunday brunch, lunch and dinner at this restaurant and thoroughly enjoy each meal. The Sunday brunch has so many selections and the omelet station is great. No complaints on lunch or dinner and enjoy the staff who remember you and take good care of you.

Great brunch. I also love the dinners here. The scallops are awesome as well as the steaks. Love the lamb and the shrimp tempura apps.

Across the street from the historical courthouse, my wife and I stayed here Saturday night while in town on a little weekend getaway...service and food for dinner were great and the Sunday brunch buffet was even better! We stayed in one of the rooms on the second floor and were very pleased with the accommodations as well...highly recommended!

Easily could be a $40 lunch for two. Will say that the food has always been delicious and tasty. Had dry fish only one time...seemed overcooked.

We went here based on reviews and WOW! Probably the best food that I have eaten in this area, including the plaza area. Had the Brunch, and it is the only buffet style meal that I sent every used plate back empty. Everything that I ate that day was amazing. I was full and was going to skip desert until... More

We had an early dinner and wine on a Wednesday night. The atmosphere is very nice, great wine, good service and the food was delicious. I had stuffed salmon and my husband had the chicken shrimp pasta. Both were excellent and more than enough. We had a dinner salad and bread. The bread is served with three kinds of butter.... More

We won tickets to a Royals game and were trying to find a room near the stadium. The tickets were on the Party Porch so I wanted to make sure we had safe transportation to the game and back. Luckily, I stumbled across Ophelia's Inn. I booked the room ahead of time and verified I could get Uber pickups (which... 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.
