Very disappointing, the steak was horrible and the service was the same. The Gouda/Beer soup was the best thing we had for a party of five.

We had the best experience at Upstream just before the holidays. We wanted to give Upstream a try again as we hadn’t been in years and so glad we did! They are under new ownership and management as of summer 2020. The menu has some of their classics but also some new too. The beer was as good as as ever as well. We had the pretzel coated cheese curds with blackberry habanero dipping sauce as well as their famous cheesy artichoke dip for starters. Both were delicious! For the main our family of five had the pork schnitzel, the salmon, the raspberry chicken and rice, a pizza and the Nashville hot chicken sandwich. Everyone loved their meals! Everything was cooked perfectly, great presentation and sides too! Rich, our sever, did a great job as well!! If you haven’t been for a while because you had been disappointed previously, you should give them another try! It won’t disappoint!!

Really great staff! We ate our dinner at the bar, service was FAST and food was delish!
We appreciated the distancing at the bar given current climate, but also very happy to be out, we will be back! We both had steaks - and we were pleasantly surprised at how flavorful the meat was. This brewery has great beer options as well, we purchased beer to go:)

When we arrived we were seated promptly and our server greeted us shortly thereafter. He got us started with a great beer selection and a corn bread appetizer. Food was excellent. We stayed around for a bit after dinner and played a few games of pool. I’m a huge fan of the atmosphere at Upstream. Great place to stop while in Omaha for a weekend getaway. We’ll be back soon.

Food was good, beer was great, service was outstanding! Only negative was when we came in they had a rack of "fresh" baked goods which we determined after looking over we would purchase a loaf of raspberry coffee cake to take home. Short story is there was nothing "fresh" about it and it got tossed that evening after a couple of bites. Otherwise we liked the experience and plan on returning when we're in the area.

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.
