A great place for Sunday brunch for a larger family gathering. Quiet enough for everyone at a large table to hear. The brunch buffet was a good value for a large group.

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.
