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.

We went here during restaurant week Spring 2017 and were disappointed. My sister and I ordered the restaurant week special. The portions were adequate, but fairly small. The meat was stringy, tough and very fatty. Service was slow and not very attentive. Their menu items...More

Quiet evening of good food & conversation with friends. Our meals were excellent & our server was attentive, yet let us have our time to visit. We had 4 different entrees & all were good.

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".

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.
