I must admit… I had my doubts about a restaurant in such a small town that had so many great reviews on Tripadvisor. But Ophelia’s met our expectations! The tiny little pork tacos appetizer on the lunch menu is really good. Be sure to order...More

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

After visiting the Truman Library and Museum, we stopped by Ophelia's. All of our meals were delicious! Rather than eating the buffet, we opted to order of the menu. Our waitress, Nicole, was fast and super friendly. Had a great time here!

The food was wonderful. I'm not one that really cares for a buffet, but this was wonderful. The food was hot and fresh. Highly recommend.

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.
