Sure wish this little gem was in my neighborhood! When we first went here in 2012 I couldn't locate it on tripadvisor to review & then of course I forgot about reviewing it. Today I was asked to recommend restaurants in this area by a friend & voila, here it is! We literally drove through a downpour the last day... More

The first time I ate at Mr. Bones was 20 years ago and my family and I eat here whenever we get the chance to visit Anna Maria Island. I have tried most everything on the menu and really never been disappointed. The sides also are really good--our favorites are the candied yams and baked beans. So why write a... More

I have been eating Mr. Bones for at least 15 years, but always take out. This is the first time I have actually eaten at the restaurant and loved it. The food as always was GREAT. The atmosphere was awesome, It is a little eclectic but fun. I should mention that as soon as we got to the island (AMI)... More

If you are looking for an interesting menu and a kitschy atmosphere this is the place for you. This is a Indian, BBQ place. Dressed up like a voodoo place, you enter to see a coffin with iced down bottles of beer in it and are told to select what you want. Neat and fun little way to get your... More

Mr. Bones is a uniquely decorated, very tasty BBQ restaurant on Holmes Beach, FL. I came across it as I was looking for vegan-friendly dinner options on vegsarasota.com during a vacation in July 2014. I ordered black beans and rice which was actually very good along with sweet potatos that were heavy on nutmeg. My parents ordered ribs and LOVED... More

I haven't visited Mr Bones for a few years, went back last week and it was even better than I remembered. Our party of three enjoyed the BBQ baby back ribs, 1/2 chicken and 10 wings. Everyone loved their meal, the ribs were a stand out. They don't provide seasoning and you don't need it! Sides of beans, yams etc... More

The barbecue is to die for! They serve really good garlic bread with the dinner in house as well. It's a very quiry, New Orleans style restaurant. Small place. Great service. Food is amazing! Curried rice, vegetable fried rice, potato salad ----all really, really good!

On previous trips to this area we avoided Mr Bones as it seemed way too unusual for us. Took a chance this time and was more than pleasantly surprised. Great BBQ chicken & pulled pork. Hot was only mildly spicy. I was a bit taken back by their no salt/no pepper policy but found the food seasoned in such a... More

Small greasy little place. Should have known something was wrong, when no one was there at Noon. Have a signed posted --Don't ask for salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard---because "Chef" has seasoned food. No French fries! Yams, cole slaw offered as options.
