10. Uptown Cafe Club D'est — 202 S Main St., Pratt, KS
This cafe is a great place to find some surf and turf, or just a simple meal while you enjoy live music and a few drinks. Either way, their steaks are some of the best I've had around here.

Blue Skye fits right in with the Kansas vibes we love, and they also make an amazing pizza! Pizza and beer have been a combo for what seems like forever, and this is just another example of how they're meant to be.
