Went to lunch with several family members and, as on several previous visits, the food was very good and the service was excellent. However the mixed drinks were a disappointment and, in fact, we returned one (a gin and tonic). Certainly not the fault of...More

Visiting historical sites in Independence and encouraged by other TA reviews. The decor is somewhat out of sync with the downtown but delightful. More importantly the food is marvelous although the main entrees are slightly modest in amount. We were thrilled to eat a very...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.
