Omaha >Upstream Brewing Co
Lots of beer choices. great selection of beers. lots of seasonal
Trendy beer lounge.
I have mixed feelings about the Upstream. The food is really good. The food item that stands out on the list is their Beer Cheese Soup. It is made with a smoked gouda that is out of this world. Every food item I have ordered from there has been perfect. The kitchen staff really have their act together. What I don't like about it, is that it is always jammed with the beer fans. Granted, it is a brewery, so it was designed that way. But it makes it hard when you are there for the food and you have to wait for the socialites to get done so you can get a table. I am hoping that they will expand their dining section so that the rest of us can get in. It is also very loud, and when you're trying to be romantic, screaming across the table doesn't make it easy. So it is NOT a good date place unless you're after a beer connasuer.

For Dinner or Social.
Upstream is a great place for Dinner or to meet friends for pool, darts, and drinks.
Try their scotch ale, it is my favorite. I also enjoy their fried calamari.
Top of the line restaurant and brewery!.
I have been living in Omaha for only 3 years, and this is one of my top three places in the city to dine; both casual and more upper casual.
The service is perfect, the food is to die for, (try the cheesecake and jalapeno poppers!!) and the beer delicious!
If you have the chance...definitely try Upstream. The location in West Omaha is great too, however, I prefer the downtown location better....not as "Hoitie Toitie" :)
Great lunch stop. Stopped here for lunch on a business trip. The service was diligent and attentive, although our waiter was a little deadpan. The place was bustling when we arrived (about 12:30 on a Tuesday), and although it was loud, the noise didn't intrude terribly on the table coversation. The menu was fairly typical pub fair -- sandwiches, salads, pizzas, with some larger entrees. I had the grilled chicken/proscuitto salad with balsamic dressing. The chicken was moist and the dressing flavorful (although there was an overabundance of it).
