It was a Saturday night and the husband and I were looking for a decent meal. After a failed attempt at the local Long Horn (the wait was out of this world) we traveled down the road a ways to Ophelia's. We had heard raving reviews from our friends from Independence so we had been meaning to check this place... More

The Sunday brunch here is great! There are tons of choices and everything is extremely delicious. The wait staff is always on point and the restaurant is kept extremely clean.

Second time staying here as it's a midway point for a friend and I. Both times we enjoyed staying on the square and walking everywhere. Recommend tour of President Truman's home. The brunch was so good both times. The staff is friendly and it's a great weekend getaway!

This is an upscale restaurant for Independence but we need more (healthier) choices! I don't eat red meat, and it is hard to find a restaurant nearby that is not meat/potatoes -based. They do offer fish and poultry, but nothing extraordinary. This restaurant has been around for quite some time and finally has an updated menu but could use some... More

We had a delightful and creative dinner at Ophelia's. The menu while not extensive was imaginative and thoughtful. Preparation and service were excellent. The decor is chic, modern, comfortable and attractive.

I have visited Ophelia's many times and it just seems to get better and better. On my most recent trip, I stayed in a lovely room upstairs and ate in the restaurant several times for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Sunday brunch is especially elegant but the regular menus are also extensive and interesting. I especially liked the seafood dishes, and... More

We saw this place as we passed by on our way to take a tour of the Harry S. Truman home and presidential library. It has an elegant decor and a number of interesting menu items. The pistachio encrusted salmon was particularly good.

This is a classy restaurant on the Independence Square. The ambiance is nice, and they often will have a piano player playing during the meal (including over the lunch hour). I have never had a bad meal.

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.
