Cafe And Bar In Young Rises From The Ashes After Fire


The Antlers Café and Bar, at 46788 N. Highway 288 in Young, is open once again.

A January 2010 fire destroyed the historic landmark, burning it to the ground and leaving nothing behind.

The site sat desolate until Valley chef Scott Tompkins and his wife Pam Tompkins got involved.

The Tompkins had a new, 4,000-square-foot restaurant built.

The restaurant now serves home cooking, including liver and onions, chicken fried steak, french fries and prime rib on Saturdays.

The cafe is fast becoming known for its pies, including rhubarb/peach cobbler.

Karaoke happens every other Saturday and pool tables are available in the bar anytime.

Scott has a collection of antique pedal cars and tractors on display, as well as hundreds of collector beer cans.

“Many folks from Young, Payson, Globe, and Star Valley have already begun to make it their own by donating elk, deer, buffalo, mountain lion and bear mounts.”

The café is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Breakfast is served Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cafe is closed Mondays.

The cafe is located 26 miles south of Highway 260 on the Young Road.

For more information, call (928) 462-3265.
