Upstream Brewing Company - Legacy- Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
We really like Upstream at Legacy and are very sad that's it's closing. I've never had a bad meal here. I will not go to the downtown location so this was our last Upstream visit. This location was more accessible and had free parking - a big plus. It's really too bad that they are closing this location. They have lost some satisfied customers.
There are so few restaurants where you can make a reservation anymore. Upstream has never let us down when we try to gather our family together for a birthday meal. Our experience was the best on Tuesday night for my mom's 97th birthday! We had a very sweet and attentive server who catered to the kids and to everybody else. The food was wonderful and everybody found something on the menu that they liked. My mom was even given a choice for a birthday dessert so she took home a piece of bread pudding! That made her day! She said she hadn't had bread pudding for years so was thrilled to take a piece home.
I highly recommend Upstream to small groups and large. They handle it all very well!!
After trying to find a table for 13 on Saturday afternoon at 3 to celebrate my daughter in law's birthday, we were very successful at Upstream and they welcomed us with open arms and fabulous service and very tasty food! Many places would not take a reservation and when I attempted to do call ahead seating or discuss a table we were refused a table or discouraged from trying their establishments. When you try to plan ahead you are told you can not but when you follow their rules, you can't get in because your group is too big. I don't understand that concept at all. Upstream allowed us to dine and were so friendly about us being there. The server was welcoming, competent and catered to everybody from my 96 year old mom to the kids ages 9 to 3. Our meal selections were savory and I know that because the little kids ate about every bite and that rarely happens. We shared our birthday treats with the server which made her smile. We will definitely hold more family events at Upstream.
The last time we were there was a week before my Dad passed away in late June and they really made every effort to help him find foods that tasted good to him. And, they compromised on the Sunday brunch price as he only ate a couple things off the buffet. They are a winning establishment for sure!
It was very busy but we were seated as soon as we walked in. Kind of noisy with people but since it's so near to the holidays, it was fun. It took a while to get our drinks to us, but after that everything was timely. The waitress was friendly and not stressed. The food was very good.
I had wonderful beef stroganoff and my husband had jambalaya. We both left with "happy
Most of the food was good except the two people who got pizza said theirs was cold. Our party reservations grew and they had no problem seating us. I ordered a Strawberry Mango Margarita which was really good but they didn't tell me until my second one that the two flavors together were $2.00 more. They made it right for me on the bill. One guest had the trout and said it was outstanding. Another guest had the beer Cheese Gueda soup and said the same thing. So I would recommend this restaurant!
We had an OpenTable reservation at 7:15pm and did not get sat until 7:50. My kids were starving, so I requested that their food be brought out as soon as possible (it was just Mac&Cheese). The adult entrees arrived five minutes before the kids'. Staff seem very disorganized.
Very disappointed in the fish and chips lunch meal. Two very small "nuggets" of fish and very small portion of fries. NOT what one would expect when ordering a lunch meal in the $11 range. Would not recommend lunch at Upstream to any of my friends because the value is just not there. Made for a disappointing birthday lunch.
I several hours prior to our reserved time to add 1 more person to our party and was told it wouldn't be a problem. When we arrived we were told there wasn'tenough room and tried to make us sit at a crowded table. It wasn't until about 15min later I asked if they could add a smaller table to give us more space, which they did. It was frustrating.
I was pretty unimpressed with the service this time...I had friends come from 2 hours away to join me for a birthday dinner. Our server couldn't keep our drinks full & we waited an hour and a half for our entrees. No manager came to talk with us & the only person who apologized to us was the hostess because we asked them for our tab after they told us to have a good night.
On a positive note- open table was a very easy way to book our reservation.
We had a wonderful experience for our family on Sunday!! There are varying tastes and likes and dislikes but we found the menu perfect for all of those challenges! Our server was spectacular and very accommodating! My 95 year old father can hardly wait to return to try something else but if we come on a Sunday, biscuits and gravy will his choice! He thought they were some of the best he has ever had!
The table next to us thought they were at a tailgate and were a bit disruptive and out of control but they left half way thru our dining experience and we all clapped! Some people just shouldn't dine in public!
The Legacy Upstream Brewing restaurant is a bit pricey for steaks, but the burgers and chicken were right inline with almost all other sit down restaurants. The food was excellent. If you've never tried a guacamole burger and you like guacamole, I highly recommend this. It has a little zing to it, but no more than mild salsa. I was skeptic, but I wanted to try something new and I was not disappointed. I also recommend the fries with a side of honey mustard as a dipping sauce. We sat in the upper level and will request this again! Excellent place to dine. We will go back soon!
Our server, Ryan, was the best part of the meal. Very friendly and attentive. Their lightest beer was very good. I had the veggie burger which was pretty good. It was a little mushy so I'd recommend they improve the recipe on that a little bit to make it more solid.
For Fathers Day brunch I though the buffet would look better. We arrived at 12:15. The buffet had been over-run by others and food supply had almost run out on some items. Buffet was messy with utensils sticky from food. Gross. Thought food selection could of been better. The chicken was completely dries out. I realize it's hard to hold and keep warm/moist. But maybe this is where another option would be better. Our omelet that were made to order were completely over-cooked. Overcooked eggs=gross! Same guy making omlelets was cutting meat. He was very stressed. Maybe one station for him would be best for all.
Over-all an ok experience but with the quality of buffet compared to price, will be a long time if ever that we will go back. It's too bad as the restaurant is a nice place
We haven't been to Upstream in a year or two. We decided it was time to go back. We set a reservation and did not wait at all. We had very timely service. When dinner came out and one of our meals was completely wrong the waitress was very professional and told us the manager bought us a dessert! It ended up being a very great date night and I would go back and recommend to anyone else!
