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

My wife and I were spent after all day canoeing on Kintla Lake. We weren't expecting much when we showed up at 4 in the afternoon, but much to our delight, it was both the friendliness and amazing food everyone hopes for in a small back country restaurant, but rarely sees. I had pulled pork and it blew my mind!... More

The smoked pulled pork sandwiches - a must! The owners and their fantastic help (Keith & Linda) are some of the nicest folks you'll ever meet. We stopped in here twice during our 5 day stay in Polebridge and just loved the place with stories on the wall about a bear break-in a few years ago and how the place... More

We drove in out of curiosity and are glad we did. The couple that run this bar and store are delightful and personable. They are warm and welcoming and if we didn't have to drive 72 miles we would have stayed for more than one drink. The drink was not at all skimpy on the alcohol...just the way I like... More

We had a great experience at home Ransbottom. The food was really good. Adding the barbecue beans for a buck is a must. This guy is a great cook and he and his wife are perfect hosts. Without a doubt the huckleberry pie that we got here was the very best we've ever eaten. Would I stop there again? You... More

My husband and I were so thrilled to find Home Ranch Bottoms and meet the new owners. The pulled pork sandwich was very good as was the beer. These new owners have only been open for a month or so - they are very friendly and creating a great spot for locals and tourists.

Don't even think about it. 8 bucks for a wimpy burger and add another dollar for processed cheese. The meat was old and the overpriced food really sucks bad! Please keep going and save your money and your stomach for Burger King or A & W in C- falls.

What a fantastic place. Right off the main road to Polebridge. Can't miss it. Must try the pulled pork or brisket. Friday night is rib night, come and get some. We had the pulled pork which is incredible!

We stopped here today for lunch as part of our day at glacier national park, western entrance. Shaun and his wife have only reopened this place in the last five weeks and they both made us feel so welcome. We had some delicious German sausages freshly cooked over a wood fire. Shaun tells yes that if we had arrived tomorrow... More
