What a find. Surroundings are comfortable and beautiful, service very attentive, and the food exquisite. Brick chicken as good as any we have ever had and the crab cakes were tasty and "crabby".

Seems overpriced for fine dining. Food was good and beverage selection was great, but the prices hurt my pocket book.

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.
