What a great place for a hot afternoon to get alittle snack. The shrimp with lettuce wrap was delish. Sweet and sour calamari was different, tangy and a real treat. Many different draft beers to choose from. Wonderful find. Staff lovely.

My husband and I visited Upstream on a recent Friday evening. We did not have reservations, but fortunately that was not a problem in the least. Rather than go with entrees, we opted for several small plates. We started with a dozen oysters. That night...More
