If you didn't know about this place you may miss it. It's located in an old basement, right across from the courthouse. The setting is pretty cool and so is the food!

The food is always consistently good. Hot meals are served 'Just like Mom use to make". There is a wide range of food on the menus. We had our son's graduation dinner at this establishment, that should tell you something.

We have been to this restaurant multiple times, and it has always been great! Will definitely be back during a future trip to Independence.

The selections are mainly soups and sandwiches. It's a quick bite before shopping on the square. They also have a salad bar and a pot of gumbo ready

3 adults and a toddler all enjoyed everything in front of us... My sandwich was huge and delicious. Salad greens were fresh and flavorful, fries were perfect. Thanks!

Late eaters beware. We arrived at 8 pm and things were going nicely until about 8:30 when staff started breaking down the salad bar beset or table. What a racket and even after we pointed out that we were still trying too enjoy our meal...More

Great salad bar, sandwiches and soups . I get 1/2 order of mushrooms for appetizer and it is more than plenty to share and 1 trip salad bar is great meal for me.

You can't stop progress but doubtful Harry or Bess would enjoy the Exchange today. The food is fine. The service very good. But the piped in music drove us OUT.

This little dive has one of the best burger I have ever had. The Bacon Mac and Cheese Burger is AMAZING! It's also something that you should probably only eat once a year to avoid heart issues, but it's totally worth it.

Located below street level, the rock walls, wooden bar, and fixtures lend the bar a cozy feel. Pop in for a hearty bite to eat or a cold drink with friends. The Court House Exchange serves some of the best sandwiches in town. Try our burgers & fries, the fried chicken platter, or a hefty pork tenderloin.
