It's difficult to find a place open for lunch on a Saturday in Omaha so I was glad to find this place. It has a nice atmosphere and a decent menu with fair prices too. Plus, delicious beer (though $4.75 for a pint is a bit much when your sandwiches are $9). Service was good too, I'd gladly come back... More

Great place to eat with friends in the Old Market Area. Neat atmosphere of old fire station. They make a good beer onsite. Food is pretty good also. We had their Pizza Italiano which has Pepperoni and Italian sausage, mushrooms, sweet red peppers, banana peppers, and mozzarella cheese. Good thin crust pizza. My favorite beer is their Capitol. I have... More

We asked locals where to eat and they sent us here. The beer selection was great fun and the food was fantastic. Two stories, lots of seating and the place was very busy. A place to visit again.

The upstream has a lot of quality food on their menus. It is a great atmosphere to try the different craft beers. Food is moderately price and well presented. Have a look you won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for a brewery in Omaha this is one of the top 4 in the area. The beer is tasty, atmosphere is great and food is good but won't necessarily blow you away. Definitely a place to go but not a frequent type place, maybe once a quarter at best. The location downtown has pool table so... More

I went to lunch with a friend. We told the waitress we were going to take our time and visit. We spent 3 hours at our booth and never felt any pressure to move on, and they kept our soft drinks refilled the whole time. I had the chicken fried chicken which was excellent. A large serving at a very... More

Whenever we are in Omaha, we make a point to have Sunday brunch at Upstream. While a little pricey, the food is fabulous. There is a made to order omelet station as well as fresh fruit and the standard breakfast fare (usually some kind of waffle, pancake, or French toast, bacon, sausage, etc). They also have a rotating menu of... More

We stopped in mid afternoon with no reservation. I image that it would be very busy at dinnertime. We ordered several appetizers, salads, and main course. All of it was good as were the samples of beer that we tried. Clean and good service. The second best place that we ate at in the downtown area.

I've had pretty good luck here. The food is good, but I wouldn't call it stellar, a bit overpriced, but not terrible. Service has been decent and about what you expect for this type of place. Plenty of selections and some good house beers that are worth trying. Its a once in awhile place for us, but we don't go... More
