The best food I have consumed anywhere! The service is awesome, the food unforgettable and you will leave this place full, satisfied and begging to return in the near future. I recommend the pulled pork dinner or the chicken tikka. Also great veggie options! Seriously: EAT HERE

One of a kind. Great bar-b-Que. Unique menu with many different selections. They have a large selection of ice cold beer.

We loved the sign so we took a chance and "dropped" in for lunch. As soon as we walked through the door we were led to the casket to pick out our bottled drink. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The BBQ was fantastic and the secret sauce was very tasty.

Been here several times and never disappointed unusual surroundings which makes it unique. We'd highly recommend everyone visiting Anna Maria to try it. Beers come in an ice filled coffin! !!

We had a nice take out lunch from Mr. Bones when our Vegan friends came to visit. I would recommend this place to people who are looking for something a bit different on the island. Also, vegan couples have options here too. They forgot one item on our order that we had to return to get but everything was eaten... More

We lived a block away, so whenever we were hungry and in a rush, we went to Mr Bones. Every time we went, everything we ordered tasted the same...a weird oily taste. We also felt ill afterwards. They say "don't even ask" as far as ketchup, but the cheese steak wasn't seasoned very well, nor were other items. Decent, friendly... More

Great astmosphere & awesome food! I love BBQ especially pulled pork. The food is seasoned perfect. You walk right in, grab a beer from the coffin and take your seat. The host did an excellent job.

Mr Bones was recommended to us, so we tried it. It was so different from your slick, conveyor belt chain eatery. It was decorated in voodoo(?) style with masks on the bamboo walls. We were asked to choose our beers from a 'coffin' full of iced beers! The menu was eclectic, with ribs, creole, indian style and burgers as well.... More

I am sure they serve other food but this is the rib stop. Easy to find and quick service makes this a good spot to grab some BBQ

I was turned off after we were sat by the back by the kitchen and we noticed how dirty it was and the floor was disgusting through out the restaurant, the food was not good at all. We will never go back to this place..I dont know what the hoopla is over this place !
