We stopped by for lunch and received a warm welcome. Take your pick from a great selection of beers in an ice filled coffin. We order the Tennessee bbq pork sandwich served with slaw and it was superb. Great flavour and decent size portion.Definitely worth a visit

Love the beer served out of a coffin. Excellent beer selection as well as wine coolers. Menu also features vegan choices. Everything we have ever had here has been excellent!!!

We ate jambalaya, ribs, and a side salad (miniature Mr. Bones salad) and it was all delicious. We didn't want to finish our food and we wanted to savor every bite. I'd recommend it for anyone looking for Louisiana style barbecue.

All the years I've been going to Anna Maria Island and stayed at Via Roma resort, I've never tried this restaurant. Well, that was a big mistake on my part. I had the shrimp & grips - and they were fantastic!

This is a very small restaurant that you may not even notice. But believe me it is worth the stop. When you walk in the door there is a cooler full of different styles of beer. The beverage selection is fantastic. The employees are very friendly as well as helpful. The menu has a great variety of food to choose... More

I love barbecue but Mr. Bones' food was average at best. The wait staff is oddly detached; they don't know anything about their - surprisingly extensive - beer selection. Forget about getting to try a second beer. One good thing: we all liked the curried rice.

I would classify myself as an expert in real BBQ. These ribs had no smoke ring and it was obvious a smoker was not used in its preparation. These ribs were soggy and tasteless. The rib sauce was bland. The service was really good but this place is an embarrassment to BBQ. Furthermore, the kids food was even worse. If... More

Small and great place to eat for couples or family. Mainly steak and ribs but the jambalaya was fantastic. A New Orleans type restaurant with masks on walls, a coffin in the corner holding all drinks and a dressed skeleton there to greet you on arrival. Give the chilli beer a miss though unless you really like hot things and... More
