Home Ranch Bottoms is a family-friendly cafe, bar and campground located next to Glacier National Park. Next door at our "sister" property, Polebridge Ranch Cabins, you can find cabins and cottages starting at $50/nt and walk to our cafe for dinner and drinks. If you are camping you are already there. We have hot showers for our campers and for walk-ins. All this is in a valley called the North Fork, thirty miles north of Columbia Falls (45 miles from the Glacier Park International Airport near Kalispell, Montana). Home Ranch Bottoms becomes a highlight and backcountry home of your adventure to northwest Montana. Join us for dinner, drinks, beer tastings, wine tastings, huckleberry frostys, music and fun. Bring your guitar, banjo, mandolin, etc. and entertain the patrons. Share your days adventure in the park with other travelers and locals alike. The North Fork of the Flathead River is at your access along our road for twenty five miles in either direction. We are in the middle of a destination for fly-fishing, river rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, backcountry excursions, mountain climbing and more. Bear (black and grizzly), moose, elk, wolves, mountain lions, wolverines, deer (white tail and mule), bald eagles all can be seen on your visit to the North Fork. We are located north of the Camas Road entrance to Glacier National Park and five miles before the Polebridge Ranger Station entrance. Come and camp with us or visit for food and libations(full bar). It will contribute to making your trip an extraordinary vacation.

Fun place to eat

This was a small bar and grill but great food. I felt like I was in a western movie in the Polebridge area.

We stopped by since there were new owners and had some great pulled pork. Friendly waitress and great stop if traveling to North Fork.

Came across this oasis on the continental divide trail and found Sean and Angie waiting with open arms (and bar)! The best ribs and smoked pulled pork I've ever had and these folks are COOL! I would make this a destination if I didn't have to continue on the bike south... Camped behind the main cabin and will never forget... More

We have been stopping in every drive we take for the past couple years. Both the ex owners and the new owners really make u feel welcomed and like family. Love the Huckleberry milkshakes. Have to have one every time. Can't wait for the next drive up.

If we had more time, we would have been able to try some of his mesquite smoked brisket that smelled amazing They're very friendly folks, you've got to stop... More

With something on the barbecue every day--pork ribs, brisket, wings--the food is very good! Servings are generous and tasty--add some local brew and end it with homemade huckleberry pie. Located in sparsely populated Polebridge, Home Ranch Bottoms is great, especially after a day of hiking. On cool days, the wood stove keeps the place toasty warm. We ate their several... More

We stopped in for dinner after our trek to Bowman Lake and managed to get the last orders of ribs, which were fall-off-the-bone-tender. These people know how to smoke meat and the sides of beans and slaw were good as well.

Awesome, terrific place. The husband really knows how to barbecue! The brisket is world-class. I've had barbecue in TX, Saint Louis, Chicago, North Carolina, Memphis; and now Polebridge.... The best is at Home Ranch Bottoms. Ask for a shot of the huckleberry moonshine and bask in the warmth from a cozy bar with all sorts of down-to-earth, genuine characters at... More
