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.

When we arrived the owner was outside having an ice cream before the rush, he was very welcoming. This place had a very nice, family friendly feel to it. The food was absolutely amazing! We would recommend this place to anyone! Hope to get here again someday!

We stopped in this place on way back from Polebridge Mercantile for lunch. Thought it was a BBQ place with a bar, and it was, but they had many other homemade options including these Applewood smoked chicken taco plates with homemade beans and rice which were exceptional. They also have homemade huckleberry pies and other deserts which folks were raving... More

Great place to stop for dinner or any meal really. Just pulling into the parking lot you will smell the BBQ and be hooked. You can't make a wrong decision because it's all delicious. I wish our trip had been longer so we could have gone at least one more time.

Located near the polebridge mercantile, so you can go get a bear claw. The family that owns this place is so nice. They have great food in the restaurant and they also have cabins. Highly recommended!

Good beer choices, cheap wine, great smoked wings. But the atmosphere is not great. The bar is big but the atmosphere is not so great. We loved the smoked wings, the dip sauce was great, but it was expensive.

My wife and I are from Vernon, Tx. When we learned that Shawn Agnew (also a Vernon native and former client) and his wife were in Polebridge, Mt., we decided to stop by while visiting Glacier National Park. It was a scenic drive from our B&B to Polebridge and on to Bowman Lake. It was great to see Shawn again... More

This place was awesome! The drive alone with incredible views was worth the trip alone, but the food is outstanding. The place has such an authentic and unique charm and all the employees (including the owner) were all very warm and friendly. They smoke all their own meat and make killer desserts. We had ribs, pulled pork, and brownie a-la-mode... More

We came upon this place while on our excursion to look into Canada...The people running this little get-a-way were incredible. We had their pulled pork & brisket sliders & Huckleberry pie...omg!...it was soooooo good!!! Their stories of bear encounters are incredible! Made our trip most enjoyable!!

On the way to Polebridge, MT, we were literally led into this interesting restaurant/bar/store/ice cream place by the yummy smell of meat smoking. We thought we'd have a Montana craft beer and a snack--perhaps some wings? We ended up ordering dish after dish. The food was some of the best I have ever eaten. Taco Tuesdays offered smoked chicken tacos... More
