Solid Experience

We chose this place for dinner because we had one night in Omaha and were with our two kids. The Old Town area was a really neat place, for tourists,which we were. We chose this because we enjoy craft beer and usually brew pubs have decent menus. We were seated quickly, the place is large and it... read more

This is a good brew pub in the old section of Omaha. It has a good selection of beer and nice menu with good food. Family friendly atmosphere.

From terrific service to tasty food and ample portions, Upstream Brewery in the Old Market has it all – and a great atmosphere to boot. If the weather is cooperative, don't miss out on the chance to sit outdoors.

The Upstream Brewing Co. was recommended by a co-worker who makes regular trips to Omaha. As first-time visitors, my wife and I were interested in visiting the Old Market area of Omaha where the restaurant/brewery is located. We are very grateful for the recommendation! The staff was friendly and took the time to explain their beers and provide samples of... More

The ambience was unique and comfortable. My husband and I have eaten here a few times and have thought their food is no better than a chain restaurant like Chilis. Nothing on their menu was enough to go back for and neither were their drinks.

Had dinner here on a business trip after walking around the Old Market Area. Menu selection was very good and pleased our entire group. Prices were pretty good for Old Market. I had a small steak with a bacon & tomato rub/garnish on top that was outstanding. Same steal at Sullivan's or another Chop House would have cost twice as... More

Went here during a recent business trip to Omaha. I got the Blackend Burger with guac and pepper jack cheese which was very good. I could tell that the meat was a very high quality. My beer I would rate as just average, not terrible but also not the best craft beer I've ever had.

This is a local brewery that you can drink and eat at in the heart of downtown Omaha Old Market area. The beers are very tasty and they offer a wide selection of their beers - they do not serve regular domestic like Bud and Miller. On that note you will hardy miss them when you try their ales and...

I just had steak on the brain when I entered the restaurant for dinner and was pleased to see they had a few options available. As I was rather hungry I opted for a salad to start and chose the Iceberg wedge, it was great. My go to steak is the ribeye and I wasn't disappointed. Sometimes there's a lot... More
