“Great Fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

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.

“Beautiful outdoor patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

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.

“A Nice Watering Hole With Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

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 and some very good craft beers. The meal started with the Iceberg Wedge Salad dressed out with tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese crumbles and creamy blue dressing. For the entree, I settled on the NY Strip Steak (what else would you order in Omaha besides steak?). It was a nice 12-ouncer served up in "red wine shallot butter, parmesan aioli and arugula salad with shaved asiago cheese and lemon vinaigrette". That's what the menu says and that's what it was. Delicious! Of course, french fries came with it.

Upstream offers 5 or 6 different craft beers. I had the Firehouse Red Ale which was very good. Folks at our table sampled other brews and everyone was impressed.

The restaurant is a very pleasant, friendly place although it does get a little noisy.

My opinion? Give it a try! I think you'll find something that's make your mouth water and your tummy feel good!

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 and sweet. My sister is a vegan, so their menu catered to her diet as well as mine (I eat meat) and we both loved our meals! The kids each got a pizza, one regular menu pizza and a kid's menu pizza and they both enjoyed them. It was my nephew's birthday, so he got to choose a dessert (peanut butter cheesecake), my sister the creme brulee, and I got the peanut butter brownie, my daughter the root beer float, and we were satisfied and stuffed! I would eat here again given the chance. It was wonderful.

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.
