Fries where cold, steak was ordered medium, and while it was cooked that way, it was tough. Appetizers where small for the price. Waitress came to take our order and in the 2 hours we were there, we only saw her one time other than to deliver the check. The food was delivered by different staff than our server and as such, they had no idea who ordered what.

Delicious outdoor brunch & cocktails. Our waiter was very fast and attentive. I wish the tables were spaced out more (due to COVID) since we were a little cramped during the brunch rush, but overall it was a great experience.

My boyfriend and I went on our very first date at the Upstream one year ago today. We decided to revisit the Upstream for our 1 year anniversary of being together. It was one of the best nights of my life, meeting my guy there. The ambience was perfect for a first date, as well as a 1 year celebration. This visit did not disappoint. Our waiter was attentive and incredibly kind. The food was delicious as always. We will definitely be back again and again!

Joe did a great job — from responding to some beverage selection questions, food offerings, to his level of service. The fish & chips was outstanding. In all — everything was well-prepared & delicious. Will certainly return.

Dined here on a busy Saturday evening. The place is huge & we were delighted to have been sat upstairs as it was a bit quieter. The Spinach Artichoke Dip with grilled beer bread was amazing! Pixie Martini was spot on! Great $5 cocktail menu. I can’t wait to go back!
