This place had good shrimp and grits and my husband enjoyed his barbaque however the staff were not friendly and they shorted my dinner by 2 shrimp. The small dish had 4 shrimp and the dinner size was suppose to have 8. Good food but not fun because of the staff. Felt like they were moving cattle.

Couldn't really fault this small restaurant, I've grown up and seen this place change over 10 years to become very popular, as a kid from crying with having no ketchup to loving their BBQ still tastes. Had to wait for a table as the place is way too small but the food is very much worth it.

After reading reviews and trying much delicious barbecue in America we thought we would try this. It was very quirky with the coffin full of bottles however that is where the enjoyment stopped. We were herded like cattle to a table and "rushed" into ordering. We both ordered ribs and chicken dishes and it was with us almost as soon... More

My family can't stop raving about this restaurant! It's very small with a very eclectic menu. The chicken tekla with Binyari rice was soooo delicious. My husband and oldest son loved the beef brisket sandwich and middle son keeps talking about the ribs and rice. Reasonable prices. Highly recommend it.

Each time I eat here I am impressed with their food. Each dish that I have tried has great flavor. They also have a great variety of food from BBQ to Indian.

Not sure about some of these reviews-we had a great lunch and great service. Lovely laid back atmosphere, obviously popular as very busy

If you are into baby back ribs this place is just about the best place to go. This is somewhere we've been to quite afew times over the years but don't eat anytime before you go here as the portions are BIG... The ribs are great, our kids can occasionally be a bit finnicky (is that a real word?) but... More

We have been coming to the Island for years and always promise we try Mr Bones. After reading the reviews we decide tonight was the night and we were kind of excited.....Hence the shock we had coming into this (very) dirty, smelly place with a not so friendly staff and very boring menu. Basically it is ribs or wings with... More

this was our second time here and we made a point to drive from Pass a Grille to get back for a meal. Not very big but the quality and quanity of the food makes up for the lack of seating and the possible wait. Service is quick once seated . Help yourself to the beer sitting in a casket... More
