We were upstairs near the bar and Brandon, the bartender was our waiter. He was outstanding! He did a fantastic job of explaining the beer offerings as well as the menu. He was very attentive and stayed on top of everything. Probably one of the best waiters we have ever had. The beer and food were also very good. We... More

Great experience! I hadn't been there in a long while and travel to Omaha about 1 time a quarter. My daughter lives there and it was a Monday evening and we got to go for a dinner by ourselves. Chris was our waiter- he was great as my daughter had questions about a couple of the ales and without skipping... More

We stopped by here for dinner at the recommendation of the front desk staff at the Magnolia Hotel. I highly recommend the hummus appetizer and a beer flight or two?

Great looking well kept place with a lot of room. Good selection of beer. My wife loved the soup but my burger was over cooked. Still a great experience.

I love this location of the Upstream, but generally head to the southwest location due to difficulty parking in the Old Market. But the atmosphere downtown is just so warm and welcoming. All bartenders and servers are at the top of their game, friendly, knowledgeable about the food, just fun to interact with. I've had nothing disappointing from the menu,... More

We love the Upstream Brewing Company in old Market! On our annual hockey trips this is always a place we seek out to enjoy lunch and it never disappoints. Last weekend we had a party of 9. Our waitress was fun, friendly and very knowledgeable. One of our party orders the sample 12 beer flight and she knew all the... More

A great menu with many offerings from Omaha steaks to great seafood, and never forget about the pizza thin and delicious. Happy hour is also great with $3 off all apps, and cheap drinks.
