I did order a jalapeno margarita that was amazing the service was amazing but very disappointing in the food selection this time

Last night we met with friends who we had not seen in fifty years. We expected to enjoy the experience. The food was terrible! It was overpriced! The menu keeps being changed and reduced. We will not go back.

There was a brief period of time when the lunch menu was significantly reduced to only a few options and the quality was not up to par. We waited 2 months to return. A great menu is back and the food was excellent. Other than the 2 of us, there were only 2 other diners even at noon. That made me wonder. The staff was friendly and attentive. We have been regulars at Ophelia’s for many years and hope to resume our lunches as long as the quality continues to be what we have typically experienced there. Food prices have risen of course, and knowing that, the overall value was fair to good. Still, a favorite go to for a good lunch in Independence.

I believe the manager only asked us if we had been greeted because I was looking around the restaurant to see if anyone would notice. They had recently changed chefs and the menu was COMPLETELY different than what was listed online. So NOTHING we had planned to eat was available. The menu was minimal at best and for a couple picky eaters was hard to satisfy. When asked if there were any pasta meals there was 1 as a special. They were asked if the clams could be subbed out for shrimp or chicken to satisfy an allergy, and the chef refused. The only other nonfish option was a steak, a salad or a huge portion of fried chicken. The T-bone steak my spouse ordered was almost 50% fat. The good: our server was so sweet and understood our time constraints as we only had 1.5 hrs to eat. She seemed understanding of our frustrations about the menu differences and the chef being unwilling to sub for the allergy. The hummus was amazing as were the mashed potatoes and the Caesar salad. We were able to eat and leave on time. The atmosphere was pleasant and it was not especially noisy.

Food was really terrible. My fried chicken was reheated apparently and nearly burned, sitting on luke warm potatoes and mushy salty asparagus. My husbands fried fish had mushy coating that fell off the filets. The fries were greasy and the coleslaw tasted old. We were shocked. We have been there before and came for my birthday to support small business. I told the waiter my chicken was burned and inedible. He brought me a take home container. I took a picture to show how awful it was. I couldn’t decide whether or not to call or write the owner. I was just deleting emails and saw this.

I did not see indication on the website that the lunch menu is limited so I was disappointed. What was available was ordinary. The last time I had lunch there offerings were more varied and appealing.

I was excited to introduce Ophelia's to two friends who had never been and it was fabulous from service to food, dessert and drinks. The surroundings are always relaxing and open. It was made more special by sharing the evening with friends of 45+ years.

The mushroom soup was odd. Very thick puréed and brown. Not at all like a usual Cream of mushroom soup. It’s also a rather salty taste. Would not order that again.

He did a great job keeping up with all of our requests! The brussell sprouts were incredibly delicious...crispy leaves drizzled with an amazing sauce...and the rack of lamb with pureed cauliflower was perfectly cooked and a great value. The chocolate chip bread pudding was one of the best I've had; it was cooked through without being dry.

Was surprised the menu in person was a fraction of the online menu. But food is always very good. The salads are so fresh and delicious and the entrees were presented well. Wish they had some bread to offer with the meal. It’s a small thing but makes a difference. Overall great experience though.

We made a reservation, but when we arrived 5 minutes early, we were told that our table was not ready. No estimated time was given except it could be quite a while. We could sit at the bar or at a high top table next to the bar or we could stand & wait by the door. We won't be back again because it's poor customer service to accept a reservation and then give the table away even though we arrived early. They don't understand the concept of a reservation.

Drinks were on spot, the Brussel Sprouts were a great starter, had the Filet and Truman’s Fried chicken! Don’t forget the Apple cobbler to finish it all off!!! We then stayed in their King Suite above the restaurant! Wonderful place for us to celebrate our 1 year anniversary! Thanks Jason & Tracie

The meal was over seasoned with pepper which made it difficult to eat. Half of the clams were not open and the other half that was were small and overcooked. Which is very odd. I am not sure how this could even happen. We then ordered the Creme Brulee as I was hungry from not being able to eat my dinner. The dessert was undercooked and did not taste well. When we received the bill the server let us know that only 15 dollars was removed from our bill. We still paid for the meal that we sent back. Left hungry and incredibly angry!

When we arrived, we were handed a menu that included only five dinner items and at prices double and triple what the other menu had shown. Later we were shown a dessert menu with no prices so we declined and got out as soon as we could.

Disappointed, spent way to much money for the food we received. Maybe it's because of the economy these days. We really want to try breakfast. Hopefully it's not $50 for pancakes and eggs.

However Open Table could do them a favor by updating the menu you show on your site. They have made some changes and they are not reflected in the menu you show.

We have also taken all of our family here. We went saturday for valentine's dinner and found that the food quality was not what we were used to. To start there was one beef option and three seafood options for valentine's dinner. We were later informed you ran out of the beef. Having no chicken or vegetarian options is almost negligent when many people have seafood allergies. We also didnt find that the food was Ophelias quality for the price. Our chicken chorizo dip was pretty pedestrian like a superbowl dip. My boyfriend ordered a $40 salmon steak that had wilted greens as a side which he didnt even touch. I didnt even eat half my polenta and shrimp. I can't fathom putting that on the menu but taking off the shrimp and grits. Even the chocolate cake was dry. We hope to be back and find things at the quality we expect for the price and hope to see the shrimp and grits back on the menu. P.S. Elaine was a fantastic server.
