We have missed pizza and pint nights since the West Omaha location closed. We finally trekked downtown and it was worth the drive. The appetizer was as good as we remember, as were the pizzas. The seasonal beers and seltzer were outstanding. My daughter loved her root beer float as much as when she was little. We will be making the trip more often!

Stopped in after long flight from California. The food was good and our server was wonderful. Our kids enjoyed the root beer, homemade, and the adults enjoyed the brewery.

We enjoyed the dinner and would recommend to anyone looking for upscale casual.

This place is so good! The blonde stout is probably one of my favorite stouts I have ever tried. We are visiting from out of town and we will definitely be back!

Love the Upstream!! Only one suggestion: get more lighting on the stairs. The darkness blends with the dark blue stairs making it difficult to see the steps.

Good , waitstaff service, and atmosphere were great. We had fish and chips which were lightly battered and crisp…. Great flavor. My only complaint was reservation and seating sequence very clunky. I used open table and even tho empty tables we were not seated until our time of reservation ( we actually arrived 30 minutes early). I never received a text to say table ready but my reservation was switched to “ now dining”. When I questioned one of the 4 at hostess at station they had no idea why but a “senior” hostess said yes, your table is ready?? They were quite snappy when I questioned them on how I would know when my table was ready.

Not sure where to start. Drove in from KC and had an awful first evening. None of the four people standing at the host stand greeted us when we walked in. Server was good, very busy and running behind but friendly and fun. Food, extremely over priced cafeteria plated food at best. It did taste good but looked pitiful and for the high price, so not worth it. Drinks were good and well priced.Salad came out after my entree and I had nearly finished it all. Overall a very poor experience, many other local places to try to get a better experience for a $100+ meal (for only 2 people).

We had out of town family to the old market. The USB was great. We were seated right away, drinks and food we great. And… we could talk at normal level and could hear each other. It was a very pleasurable time.

Upstream has been reliable favorite for us for over 20 years. Our entrees were well prepared and generously proportioned. Food quality has always been good, but it seems even better over the past year. Service is always personable and responsive.

Upstream used to be our favorite “go to” place for their Reuben sandwich (with their own beer bread). Unfortunately since the last time we went they’ve changed the sandwich completely: no more beer bread, different meat… not the same anymore. Everything else was good

We did the Mother's Day buffet which we hadn't even expected. We decided to try it. We were there at noon and much of the food had dried out as they opened at 10. Our waiter did not even check to clear the table of used plates or freshen beverages.
We will go there again in the future because we usually enjoy the food, brews, and patio.

Made reservations thinking it would be busy for Sunday Brunch but I didn't wait a minute before being seated. Wasn't until an hour later when I saw larger groups come in. Food was very good and service was excellent! By the time I left, there was a short line so would highly recommend making a reservation in advance to avoid long wait times.

This is a really good place to go. The brewed root beer is delicious! Especially the hard root beer! The food has always been delicious and the service is great. It is a noisier place so people must be enjoying themselves. Now they have open table app to book on your phone so can pretty well get in when you want! If you are in Omaha this is a must to visit!!
