Been along time since previous visit. Still good food and brew. Very popular place in Gualala for a reason. Had the chicken with coleslaw. Very moist and flavorful. My wife had fish and chips. She said it was nice. Friendly service. Hope to visit again.

Bones is a straightforward ribs and brisket restaurant. Good brews on tap. The service is good as well. I was never disappointed at Bones. Sometimes it gets a little busy when the tourists descend on it but the staff always try to accommodate you. Also, they are great supporters of the community.

Small town, it's easy to be pegged a tourist. The really young waitress with the absurdly loud boots is not very attentive or friendly. I waited for 15 minutes in the bar for her to clear her 1 table. Bartender was cool. When i got in there, 4 tables were open. As I waited and waited for aloof teen angst... More

Good restaurant with several choices of smoked meats. Ribs fall off the bone, there is enough pulled pork in the sandwich to make 2 sandwiches. The side dishes are all good too. Mac& cheese, potato salad, slaw, beans are good. They also have hamburgers, fries, onion rings, plus beer, wine, soda. It can get really crowded Friday and Saturday nights.... More

People bike in from hours away just to snack here. The food is terrific, the wait staff is friendly, and the view is incredible. If I had to pick a draw-back it would only be the internal atmosphere (waving flies away from my potato salad), but I left far from disappointed. I will be back.

This place's decor is inviting with lots of roadhouse type signs, fixtures, etc. The service was great and the staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy working there. The menu has mostly BBQ and all that goes with it. I would say my BBQ slider was good, nothing special. Creole pasta salad didn't have much flavor, and was kinda chewy... More

From the outside this looks like a bikers bar....it is but so much more the food is great. Usual menu of American classics, ribs, wings, burgers, sandwiches etc with fish and chips all done really well. The pulled pork sandwich is very popular and the 'in house' smoked salmon is stunning. We have been there a few times over a... More

Good BBQ. I had Caesar salad with smoked salmon and would highly recommend it. My husband had a burger and felt it was very good. The BBQ is a wet (saucy) type not the dry BBQ. The restaurant had a great view and dollar bills stuck to the walls. The service was quick and pleasant. We would return if in... More
