Good Food & Easy to Get Into with Large Group on Friday Night

While I'm always skeptical about trying to get into any restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night with 6 adults and 4 children...it was pretty painless as we were able to make reservations near the 6 PM hour. The restaurant has a very large amount of space on 2 floors and seems to be able to... read more

We were lucky as the restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived. According to the waiter, it usually has a 2-hour waiting period. The place is very large and very attractive. The waiter we had was very friendly and even recommended the Jumbalia over the pot roast. He said the Jumbalia is always good, while the pot roast is hit-or-miss.... More

Went for Sunday Brunch. The food selection was great. Lots of variety and they have feature brunch items each week. The service was great. One feature that I never experienced before... they have an omelette station but instead of standing in line you just fill out a form at your table and they bring it to you. How come this... More

Upstream has been my "go to" place for a beer and a bite to eat while traveling east from Colorado to art shows. It's always been good. Never fantastic, but decent. And, I've always enjoyed the beer. This last visit, however, was on the same night as a baseball game and it was packed, really packed. And, maybe that's why... More

Go here every year at the start of the College World Series! Have the strip, cooked just right - an Omaha Steak Strip! Has a great selection of draft beers - a wide variety for all of the different beer drinkers. Wings were great grilled - no breading - with an ample amount of sauce!

Upstream Brewery was a great dining experience for my family. Our family of four was seated promptly on a Sunday evening. The beer flight was a good way to sample several of their beers. My son was pleased with his cheese pizza from the children's menu which included a brown cow or root beer float for dessert. My husband enjoyed... More
