Much variety on tap. Sweet flight available of everything they had to offer. Bottles of specialties to go. A management staff that seemed to apprecaite you being there, hit or miss with the bartenders. Great neighborhood and nice outdoor seating as well.

Very nice decor inside and out. We sat upstairs Nice mix of restaurant and lounge. Upstairs area had pool tables which wasn't distracting.There is a second bar upstairs.

Menu selection was interesting. A hit right off the bat was their smoked gouda and ale soup. It's worth having. Nice flavours of the gouda and ale meld well.

Pork Schnitzel was one entree enjoed and the second was Mac and Cheese with Blackened Chicken.

The schitzel was a fiar size with a ok breading. It was cooked well yet dry. Mashed potato and veg were good sides.

The mac and cheese was ok. The sauce was thin and it didn't bind with the pasta. Not a stick to your ribs M&C. Blackened chicken was good.

The night I came here this place was packed, although it was nestled in one of the nicer parts of Omaha. I noticed they sell variants of beer from a reserve out front which is always a plus, although they did appear to be a bit on the pricey side. Inside it was nice place, although they were understaffed and the employees didn't seem very knowledgeable about beer. Most of their beers seemed to be standard fare on tap, although I did try the barrel aged Kurgan Wee Heavy which was very good. I will probably stop again because it is in such a nice area and for those that haven't been there it is worth a stop if you're in the area as you never know what they might have on tap out of their reserve.

I was passing through Omaha & found this place on BA. I am so glad I did. it is a large space with a warm & welcoming vibe. I It is a large rectangular bar w/ an old time feel to it.The beer was excellent as was the food. The service was good, but not perfect. I have nothing negative to say. The prices are reasonable , the beer is inexpensive. The food prices were competitive. I will return @ every opportunity.

Upstream is in the Old Market of Omaha, such a great neighborhood. Stopped here during a blizzard, so it was rather quiet! Food was good, beer was good, atmosphere was great. Got a growler of Firecracker Red Lager to go, decent beer. Will be back again!
