We tried Mr. Bones as somewhere unusual and different for a meal. I have to say I was blown away.. New Orleans BBQ with Indian curried rice may not sound quite right but I was blown away with the contrast and how well it went....More

Food okay but was not overly impressed. Menu fairly limited. Staff could have been more welcoming. Would not rush back.

Best BBQ in Fl hands down! Giant baby back rib racks with amazing sauces. Sides of coleslaw and baked beans. Cool beer trough up front where you pick your own. Make your reservations and enjoy! Only about 7 tables. If you love BBQ Mr Bones...More

Would not return. Within seconds and at several times, you are notified about their "Louisiana chefs" and their sensitivity to asking for seasonings, BBQ sauce etc. Reminders that they are easily insulted. The food, quite frankly, was very disappointing. If you are going to brag...More

We ordered chicken wings and ribs - we thought the spice in the sauce was going to be very spicy - but it was quite bland. Sad to say I was underwhelmed, but that's only personal preference for ribs with a spicy kick.

The ribs were boiled not grilled therefore not really authentic. I really wanted a hamburger, but when I read the sign not to ask for ketchup I got the ribs. I won’t be back

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.
