Ophelias is on the expensive side, but it is a great place to eat for a special occasion. The food is always exceptional, and it is refreshing to eat at a non-chain restaurant. Worth it!

Expensive but worth every penny. Loved the food and atmosphere. Waiter/waitresses are very attentive and never have to ask for anything.

Relied on TripAdvisor to find this place and was not disappointed. Delicious steak soup. Club sandwich was very well done. Crab cake appetizer was very good and good size portion. Soup and half sandwich was $8.00 which I thought was fair.

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.
