No Wait!!!! Were able to get right in for dinner without a wait.

Great service, second only to the food, which was great quick and hot. Waiter was very informative, explained the meals on the menu. When the food was ready three waiters brought the food out at the same time, and we all ate together at the same time.

Interesting place. We were able to get right in on a Sunday around 7. It's a larger restaurant than I expected, and there's an area with pool tables and comfy chairs also if just having a few beers or appetizers I guess. I had the pot roast which I think is one of their classic meals -- It was just... More

Came here with my cousins who had their wedding reception here downstairs when they got married a few years ago. This place used to be a old firehouse back in the day. The large bay doors are still here. The food was good, I had the ribeye and a Greek salad. They have a nice bar with TVs all around... More

A wide selection of really appealing and tasty dishes. Something to satisfy anyone. The only thing I've had that I didn't like contained smoked salmon, which is probably a personal taste issue. This is now the only place where I order a burger, since I've stopped eating bread; it actually tastes better without the bun as opposed to other eateries... More

I know the Upstream is a brewery but, I am not much of a beer drinker. So, I go for the food! Their ribeye has never disappointed me. I have ordered it off menu as well as the special of the evening. DELISH! And, always cooked to perfection! They have a wonderful selection of cocktails. My recent fav 'What you... More

The seasonal Triforce Tripel is great and 10% alcohol hehe worth getting ;) Now to service..... Um it's a bit rough around the edges. I asked for suggestions for my flight and picked the first 3 beers and... More

This is one of the staples of the Old Market. The word "Omaha" in some indian language means the "Upstream people" so that's where it got its name. It's in a building that I think was originally the old fire station, so it has that cool re-claimed building feel. The selection of micro-brews is great, the food....well, there are so... More

When you are a regular client at a restaurant, you notice when business start going south. That was the case with my last visit to Upstream in Legacy. One of my guest ordered Fish & Chips and instead he got "Fish and Grease". Slow service, would not even serve water. It is not the Upstream that I once knew.
