“Very good beer, average food”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This large brewery in the Old Market currently has 11 types of beer being brewed on sight and has a good looking outdoor seating area. Tip: for the best seats, go up the stairs to the 2nd floor, and out the door to an even better 'hidden' outdoor seating area with a nice view overlooking the Old Market.

“Good beer and decent food.”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

The Upstream had a good beer selection. I partook in the Scotch Ale and Firehouse Red and both were excellent. The Greek salad was good but ask for the dressing on the side. The smoked Gouda and beer soup was really tasty. I was disappointed in the Omaha ribeye steak. I ordered it medium rare and it came out past medium. I also thought the flavor was lacking. The spinach was good and the asiago and ham potato fritter was excellent. The bartenders did a good job. Overall, I had a good dinner. Hopefully my next Omaha steak will match the publicity.

“I always enjoy this place”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This time I went healthy and had the blackened salmon salad. Very good lunch choice. They have great selection of their own beers. Try the IPA.

“Fun restaurant for dinner out”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

A popular restaurant in Omaha for many years, Upstream Brewery is one of my favorites. The inside is spacious with lots of tables on two levels; the bar area is large as well. The menu is suitable for everyone including families with children. Upstream makes its own beer (one can see the tanks around the dining room) that can also be purchased to take home. The beer selection is huge and changes with the season. I have never had a beer here that wasn’t outstanding. Great restaurant for a fun meal!

“Glad We Went!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I am from out of town and my sister brought a bunch of us here for dinner before a concert. The place was packed, however we were seated within 10 minutes of walking in. Place was clean and staff was very friendly. Everyone enjoyed their meals which were brought out in a timely manner. Love the Beer selection! Kids enjoyed the Root beer. We came back a couple days later and bought a couple Growlers to take back to Maryland with us. Would definately go back when we are in the area. The Old Market is a cool spot and this place just adds to it!
