O'Charley's is a restaurant that has come to Independence in the last few years. It is located at the Blue Parkway exit off of I-70. O'Charley's is fairly large and can seat quite a few people. There is still often a wait on the weekend. The servers have always been nice and helpful. The have a large selection of items on their menu. Their salads and chicken strips are very good. I once ordered a grilled chicken breast with potato and I have to say the portions were very small for the price. The food tasted really good though. They also have pastas which are very generous with serving size. The desserts are quite good and the fried pepperjack cheese appetizer if really wonderful. They do have a large bar and the drink specials are usually pretty good. The usually run a daily special for entree and a soup of the day too. The atmosphere is very relaxed and open. A good place to take a family to.
