    Breakfast is not good here. The eggs smelled and tasted funny like they were cooked with old oil. But they did apologize and didn't charge me so I'd go back to this place for dinner or drinks!

    If you eat here and don't try the smoked Gouda and beer cheese soup, you have failed. Be better than that. Also, Ebenezer is a great winter beer.

    Artichoke dip!!!!!!

    Small selection of brews, but the ones they picks are fantastic.

    Audrey Smoked Alt was excellent. Not overly carbonated and the perfect temp.

    Upstream's standard line of beers is probably my favorite in Omaha. The Dundee Scotch Ale is particularly good. Cheap beer and half-priced apps during happy hour.

    Megan P. · October 20, 2014
  • Hannah S.

    Blonde pizza. :) also, any soup of the day is amazing. I wish they had the clam chowder more often though. :)

    Enjoyed the flagship IPA. Bummed they were out of the Obsession IPA.

    I've never been less impressed w/food AND management. Don't waste your money or time. There are too many other great places in the area. Fish was rubbery and roast was terribly dry.

    Janice Padilla-Eliot · July 5, 2014
  • Jeff M.

    Pot Roast was really good.

    Jeff Mackey · June 24, 2014
  • Hannah C.

    Smoked Gouda & beer soup, Reuben, sweet potato fries, seasonal brews - not life-changing but they have a rooftop patio and it's a great hangout spot in Old Market.

    Hannah Choe · June 15, 2014

    Best year-round beer: Dundee Scotch Ale. Best summer seasonals (dark) Black Forest Porter (light & fruity) Raspberry Belgian Wit.

    Leah Becerra · May 22, 2014

    The bartenders need to learn how to pull from a cask. But, the beer and food are great.

    It's rare to have a bad meal at the Upstream. Try mixing their smoked gouda & pale ale soup with their tomato soup. Also, check out of their speciality beers.

    Elliott · December 4, 2013
  • Matt C.

    The steaks are better at Rock Bottom but the pints(and everything else) are better at Upstream! The flagship IPA is PERFECT. The red is good for real beer novices.

    Matt Courson · October 19, 2013
  • Michael D.

    order the 12 beer sampler!

    Excellent location and nice place to hang out. Food is very good, and if you like raspberries, try the Upstream Raspberry Lager. Very tasty.

    David Beaulieu · July 19, 2013

    I was deciding between the salmon and the jambalaya. Our server, Nathan, said the chef is from Louisiana, so my decision was easy.

    Three words... Caramel Bread Pudding! Oh, and the patio seating is very relaxing on a Sunday morning.

    Justin Fjeldos · June 30, 2013
  • Drew F.

    For the price, the NY Strip is pretty good. I recommend the Scottish Ale to go along with it too.
