Decided to pop in while on a day trip to see the Truman Library. Always listed as a favorite locally. It didn't disappoint. Had the daily lunch special of tempura shrimp po boy with fries. Excellent choice. Fries were piping hot and the pool boy added a nice Napa slaw.

We visited Ophelia's while my husband was on a business trip to Independence. This restaurant was recommended by friends who had eaten there several years ago. They said the food and atmosphere was wonderful and we decided to try it out before us for ourselves. We were NOT disappointed. We made a reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival. Our...

The very best burgers in the world come off my smoker. I didn't think there were any burgers even close. Mine are still best, but these compare. I was impressed and very happy to have eaten one. I have no idea about the hotel stuff.

This is a gem in historic downtown Independence. Food is excellent - eclectic menu with something for everyone. My favorite is the Greek Orzo with Shrimp. It is outstanding. My friend got the chicken salad sandwich and loved it. Service is consistently good. It is also an Inn. While I have never stayed here, the location is outstanding for tourism... More

Stayed Saturday night with the wife and really enjoyed it! The room was nice and clean, and the restaurant and bar downstairs was very good. You must try the Sunday brunch, it rivals anything we have had anywhere!

The food was fresh and fantastic! My friend had the chili salmon salad. The greens were crisp while the salmon was grilled to perfection. The chili was not too overpowering. Good blend of flavor. Also a half order for lunch was sufficient. I chose the grilled Cuban. The pork belly was a little tough and fatty but overall not a... More

We love staying at Ophelia's. This is a boutique style hotel. The rooms are very cool and the location is convenient to downtown Independence as it is right on the square. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. They offer a cooked breakfast each morning from a set menu with 5 or 6 choices. If you are staying in Independence... More
