Upstream Brewing Company Reviews
If you don't mind waiting over an hour for terrible service and so-so food, this is the place to go. Of course in that hour that you wait you get to watch what I assume you would call 'managers' running around and over everyone with a Burger King like ear piece. (Would you like fries with that?) This company is supposed to be partnered with a Denver based restaurant and I would not even begin to compare them. When the restaurant originally opened up, the menu was excellent which also went along with the service. Now they have changed the food and the staff so much you never get what you want or the service that you need. I would suggest any other restaurant in town then this catastrophe. Be careful you don't get in the middle of their weekly customer fights, this is of course the only bonus to being there.
I had one of the specials. Pan-seared pork tenderloin with port wine & rosemary demi glace served with wild mushroom & artichoke polenta & steamed vegetables. Great flavors!!! Plenty of food. Cost was possibly a little pricey ($13.95) but I enjoyed the meal & the surroundings very much. Neat exposed brick walls. The only down side was the noise factor caused by the high ceilings & hard brick surfaces.
The atmosphere and decor are real good. The crowd is of all ages, and everyone has a good time while there. The food is prepared and presented well. A good place to take your guest.
Great atmosphere with aweswome beer. Especially great when you get there during happy hour. Only $1.50 a beer!This place is busy, but we have never had a problem finding a seat in the bar area.
The fish and chips were very enjoyable. The beer definetely came through in the fish's batter.

Good food and really cool atmosphere.

The pretzel bites with smoked gouda cheese are amazing. The Kitten Mittons Double IPA is delicious. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.
by Buffie Lee L

by Andre T
Check out the rooftop deck. Very fun in summer!

by chad hatten A
Could take or leave the food, but the beer is well done.
Beer cheese soup ya'll!
by Brandi B.
Breakfast is not good here. The eggs smelled and tasted funny like they were cooked with old oil. But they did apologize and didn't charge me so I'd go back to this place for dinner or drinks!
by Carli T

by Dawn K
Good beer, great atmosphere. Enjoyed the food.
by Brent Gatewood
Blonde ale cheese soup
by Stephanie J
If you eat here and don't try the smoked Gouda and beer cheese soup, you have failed. Be better than that. Also, Ebenezer is a great winter beer.
by Greg S.
by Valonique J
Small selection of brews, but the ones they picks are fantastic.
by Ryan J
Audrey Smoked Alt was excellent. Not overly carbonated and the perfect temp.
by C McP
Upstream's standard line of beers is probably my favorite in Omaha. The Dundee Scotch Ale is particularly good. Cheap beer and half-priced apps during happy hour.
by Megan P.
Blonde pizza. :) also, any soup of the day is amazing. I wish they had the clam chowder more often though. :)
by Hannah Simpsom
Enjoyed the flagship IPA. Bummed they were out of the Obsession IPA.
by Michael S.

by Kyle S.
The 3 flavor hummus w/ grilled pita is amazing!
by Janice G.
Best local Brew in Omaha. Bartenders know their stuff
by Bradley Dorenkamp
There are different beers between the downtown and west O locations, so check them both out!
by Jeremy Kalina
I've never been less impressed w/food AND management. Don't waste your money or time. There are too many other great places in the area. Fish was rubbery and roast was terribly dry.
by Janice P.
Pot Roast was really good.
by Jeff M.
Smoked Gouda & beer soup, Reuben, sweet potato fries, seasonal brews - not life-changing but they have a rooftop patio and it's a great hangout spot in Old Market.
by Hannah C.
Best year-round beer: Dundee Scotch Ale. Best summer seasonals (dark) Black Forest Porter (light & fruity) Raspberry Belgian Wit.
by Leah Becerra
The bartenders need to learn how to pull from a cask. But, the beer and food are great.
by Emily I
It's rare to have a bad meal at the Upstream. Try mixing their smoked gouda & pale ale soup with their tomato soup. Also, check out of their speciality beers.
The steaks are better at Rock Bottom but the pints(and everything else) are better at Upstream! The flagship IPA is PERFECT. The red is good for real beer novices.
by Matt C.
order the 12 beer sampler!
by Michael D.
Favorite sports bar in the old market. Great beers on tap
by Patrick G.

Excellent location and nice place to hang out. Food is very good, and if you like raspberries, try the Upstream Raspberry Lager. Very tasty.
by David B.
I was deciding between the salmon and the jambalaya. Our server, Nathan, said the chef is from Louisiana, so my decision was easy.
by Russ G.
Three words... Caramel Bread Pudding! Oh, and the patio seating is very relaxing on a Sunday morning.
by Justin F.
For the price, the NY Strip is pretty good. I recommend the Scottish Ale to go along with it too.

The Dundee Scotch Ale is the best.
by Anthony L.
The Dundee Scotch ale was delicious.

Avoid the jambalaya. Swimming in tomato sauce, with crunchy celery chunks. Anyone from Louisiana would be ashamed.
by Theme Park Insider G
The farmers market beer is by far the worse thing ever brewed
by Jake C.
The pot roast is delicious and the size of your head
by Dave J.
