    So very disappointed in our experience. When we were first seeded at a very dark table, we asked to be moved to a separate table, and the hostess was quite annoyed, and then said, “those are reserved,” which made no sense, considering we had reserved standard seating on OpenTable. The server was quite aloof, and in fact, walked away from us as we were giving him our appetizer order. Food was OK. The server admitted the root beer barbecue sauce is simply Sweet Baby Ray’s with their root beer syrup mixed in. He could not inform us if the root beer had caffeine or not, which is something he should 100% know. When the check came, there was an error which needed to be fixed by a manager.

    We've been coming for fat Tuesday for several years now. It's always a good time. Delicious special menu, I always get the seafood Caroline and alligator bites, so good. They always have a great band and it gets pretty energetic. Be patient with servers/bartenders as it can get quite busy and you'll have a good time.

    Delicious food across a menu with a wide range of options. A physically large restaurant but the seating is arranged so each table area has an intimacy to it. The second floor is a better option for those who want to fully hear their table mates. Very much appreciate that they honor those with reservations PROMPTLY, even on a Saturday night. A fun place with great value.

    Nice bar, I've been here many times in the summer for Brunch. They had a nice large lunch menu with everything from Sandwiches to Steak. I had the Salmon, which was amazing. The Apple Slaw went so well with the Mediterranean Spiced Salmon, and the wild Rice. The food came out quickly. The service was sufficient. He came and checked on us. He wasn't intrusive. Nothing outstanding but not bad. I would definitely go back again.

    When our food was brought to our table they didn’t have enough utensils or napkins for us. After awhile we were given more forks (still not enough) and then some cocktail napkins. We spent over $300 on dinner and they couldn’t wash enough forks or give us enough dinner napkins. The food was good, but when you order a $45 steak, you shouldn’t have to wait for a fork. That kind of set the tone for the whole experience.

    We had a very bad food experience there, we just ordered two hamburgers and they were dry and tasteless. The buns were even worse, they were old and stale. Not a good food experience at all. We used to love going to the Upstream but that might have been our last visit there for a long time.

    Have been here several times for the Spin dip, this time the dip tasted sour and wasn't the portion we normally got. Looked like they rushed it our and didn't melt the cheese on top of the dip and the dip was barely warm. They asked how I wanted my burger (medium) and it was over cooked. Bun was dry and stale, fries were ok. My wife had soup and salad with salmon on the salad. She said her food was ok. Second time we have come with mediocre results.

    I don’t recommend any special occasion menus at Upstream. I ordered a $70 New Year’s Eve surf and turf special, and it was very disappointing. The steak was not tender, and while the scallops were prepared very well, there were only two of them. Finally it was supposed to come with a salad, but they didn’t bring that out until after I had my main course.

    Our server was very prompt and attentive. The appetizers came out almost instantly, almost surprisingly fast. I had good drink suggestions and my nieces enjoyed the ice cream and juice that came with the kids meals. The adults all seemed to enjoy what they had and often had extras but were too full to finish. It was a very smooth and quite nice evening meal.

    The food was great! They ran out of the Pumpkin King Hefeweizen beer I liked, which was disappointing. The service was slow, and it took awhile to get our beer and check. Normally the service has been good, so I’m hoping this was an outlier.

    We have eaten here about 15 times and this time it didn't disappointment. Steak was cooked as ordered and the green beans and mashed potatoes were great to accompany the steak. You doesn't like steak and potatoes for dinner. Had very good service and the experience was excellent as usual. Peach margarita is always a good choice

    We were there for a Sunday brunch buffet service. There were many heated trays of dried out, mostly empty, bland food. There was an employee who came out to check on the food trays but never once did we see fresh food brought out. The handmade omelettes were dry, the beef from the beef carving station looked great but was hard to cut and chew. We had not eaten at Upstream for a long time due to food quality and thought we'd give it another chance. I'm glad we gave it another try but definitely was not for us.

    We have dined here several times in the past but it’s never been this bad. Our waitress was fine and food arrived quick, but it was pretty disappointing. Several of us had burgers. They all came out plated like your average cafe, just plopped on a plate, and didn’t even have a toasted bun. The bread was so dry it needed a sauce, but they put so much bacon jam on my husbands that he had to scrape it off just to make it palatable. It came with fries, but about 1/2 size order you’d expect. None of us ate all of our food or took it home. We expected better for the cost.

    Lots of mistakes with order. One person’s meal never came. When we asked what was up they put in a rush order and brought out something that we did not order and was not even on the menu 🤔 ate it instead of waiting a third time. Sodas were just carbonated water and waitress forgot to replace. Bill had errors. Meal was comped and waitress apologetic. Food was very salty.
