The artichoke dip and bread appetizer is a must. The steaks looked interesting on the menu, but they ended up being fair. Mine was overcooked. The arugula salad that accompanied mine was very good though. Skip the pizza, it is not worth it. The outdoor seating was very nice, but there was a street musician that was too loud (not... More

Go for the "flight" of twelve 2oz. craft beers! Better than pub food with decent steaks, fish'n'chips and salads.

A wonderful selection of on-site brewed ales and beers. A varied menu that will fill you up and won't break the bank. Good place to take kids, as well.

This was a great spot in Old Market downtown which we had never seen before. There were many places to eat, it was a beautiful night so we chose this one. Good food and drinks, wonderful atmosphere. Waiter from another table was very nice, our waitress was a little snarky, think she was ready to go home.

My first dining stop on a recent trip to Omaha was to the Upstream Brewing Company. The restaurant is located in the VERY COOL Market District where old factories and buildings have been converted into shops and eateries galore. If you are in Omaha, you simply MUST visit the area. Upstream is a bright, friendly place featuring a big menu... More

The restaurant was clean and the weather perfect, so we chose to eat out on the patio. The patio was comfortable and great for people-watching. The service was quick and friendly. We started with fried pickles and the artichoke asiago dip with their beer bread (SO AMAZING). The root beer they make pleased my nephew and daughter. It was rich... More

We stopped here for drinks and dinner and were impressed by the size of this place. It was a very pleasant environment. The beers were well above average compared to other microbrew joints. I had the Tuscan salad and it was excellent.

We had time to grab a quick dinner before a concert and wanted to take a look at downtown Omaha. We had done a quick search online before we arrived and settled on Upstream Brewing Co. The weather was excellent, so we opted for one of the outside tables. From what we could see, diners young and old were enjoying... More

Visited with adult children. One complaint about the place - if you're a brewery wouldn't you employ staff who know about your beer? Our waitress was clueless when we asked basic questions about their beer. My chili was tasty, but the mac and cheese my husband ordered was rather bland. Would try it again. Good location.

If you are in downtown and want a more casual lunch or dinner this is the place to go. The god is excellent and you can play pool upstairs if you like
