Great beer...great energy!

Favorite local bar, brewery and restaurant for our entire family! Food wasn't quite as good this visit as in previous trips, but still decent. The beer and the environment are really the reasons to visit this place in the heart of the Old Market! Make a trip upstairs for a round of pool or a... read more

Our family loved going to Upstream Brewing Company in the Old Market area of Omaha, NE. The food was terrific, the waitress was extraordinary and the Brew was really, really good. The sampler was a great way to try all of their micro brews then we decided on a full glass of their seasonal dark beer. We went here as... More

The service was outstanding but it could not overcome the quality of the ribeye steak special. I dined with a group of ten and the wait staff was attentive and did a good job. However, the quality of the food was really not good. The beer I had was Dundee Scotch Ale and it was quite good. I suggest that... More

While visiting the Olde Town Market we stopped to eat lunch at this Brewing Co. The staff was very pleasant and the food was very good. They have a pretty nice variety of food for a pub. Their fish and chips were great, battered with their own beer batter. Yummy...

My daughter and I have made it a point to stop at the Upstream on each of our visits to Omaha. At 11, she loved the bacon-wrapped shrimp. At 15, she loved the bacon-wrapped shrimp. We're headed back to Omaha next June and I expect that at 19, she will love the bacon-wrapped shrimp!

It has been a while since I was at the Upstream. The beer and food was as good as I remember it.. The interior is rich and attractive and one of the nicest bar area in Onaha. The only drawback was a bartender that acted as though he did not want to be there and made us feel the same... More

We ate there twice in a three day period. I had the salmon the first trip there. I recommend that meal. Their light lager beer is excellent. The second time was for a group supper. The wait staff is excellent.

Make a reservation, it gets pretty busy for dinner. We each had the eight ounce Omaha Steak which came with sides, and was not a la carte. This place also honors the Craft Brew Tour beer coupons found in the passport that you can grab at the visitor's center just a few blocks away. What's better than free beer? Free... More

Food is good - especially enjoy dining on the sidewalk under the trees on nice days. Although the service out here is a little sketchy ... seems like staff aren't sure who 'their' tables are, so sometimes you're completely ignored and can't get drinks refilled, or order desserts, etc.

Have been here many times but tonight the NY Strip was fantastic. Pretty good price for a steak with fries and a salad. Tried several beers and the wait staff were very good. There was a newer woman at the bar that was not very helpful but the rest were great.
