We went one time to Mr. Bones, but we won't be back. Although the service was friendly enough, the food was forgettable, and the big sign in the dining room was arrogant and off-putting: no salt, pepper, catchup, etc. allowed in the dining room -...More

We have been to Mr. Bones twice in the last year, most recently in April 2017. The food is consistently very good and appropriately priced. Each time was with visitors from up north who all liked their meals. Some had ribs and a few had...More

Went here for a fun family dinner and had a great time! There were 7 of us plus a toddler. We tried BBQ ribs, an Indian chicken dish, jambalaya and all kinds of unique beers. Very accommodating to keeping toddler happy too! Highly recommend. Glad...More

It has a unique twist of getting a beer out of a coffin. It serves a mix of BBQ and some Indian cuisine and some fried rice dishes. A couple years ago I had jambalaya and cheese grits and really liked it. This time, mandarin...More

went here for the novely factor of the beer in the coffin. The staff were not friendly on arrival and the surroundings were a good idea, but needed updating and cleaned. The ribs were advertised as the best ribs, but sadly they were dry and...More

Visited mid May and whilst we were a walk in, got the last table available. Good menu and excellent food. A must visit when you're in the area.

Ribs restaurant with limited menu. Very basic interior. Beer bottles self-service in a coffin (yes, a coffin) at entrance. Okay for a casual meal, but nothing special. Ribs were good...side selection okay.

Do we need a reservation for tomorrow (Thursday) for a party of 5? (Probably around 6:00PM). Also, for non-alcohol drinking diners, do you have any fresh Iced Tea or non-alcoholic beer & if so what kind? For take-out, how much time do we need to pre-order before pick-up? Thanks! Paul

Hi Paul, Mr Bones is quite small so may be best for you to ring ahead (941) 778-6614 if you are a party of 5, though you should get in okay. Plenty on menu for non-alcoholic diners as I am one myself! (Always the... More

Mr Bones is a one of a kind family owned and operated business. We have lived and worked on Anna Maria Island since 1992. We have a loyal following of locals, and Snowbirds (as well as our snowbirds from across the pond). If you are looking for the same old corporate American vacation cuisine, you will NOT find it here. All of our food is actually home made in our little 40 seat restaurant. We are the only island restaurant with a separate menu for our vegan friends, so family's can go out to eat together. If you don't feel like eating out, after a long day on the beach or on the boat, "take out" is available. For groups of 15 + see our catering menu on our website.
