The decor was really cool, but we all got Philly Cheeses Steak sandwiches, and they were made of ground beef that tasted like it had taco seasoning (weird) also, the kids macaroni is 4$ and is kraft in a bowl.

Mom really liked the jambalaya and the pulled pork was awesome! The kids (ok...they're in their 20's) said the barbecued chicken and ribs, as well as the cole slaw were all great. We would definitely go there again!

We just finished the Mr. Bones Honey Glazed BBQ spare rib dinner. Delicious! We chose the potato salad and baked beans for sides. The dinner also came with a scrumptious side of rice cooked in a sauce with veggies and garlic bread. EVERYTHING was wonderful. If you are near Holmes Beach, Florida, don't miss this restaurant. It's a little hole... More

I really enjoyed the bee ridge location in Sarasota when it was open..the happy hour was awesome with really spicy bar snacks...I loved the crawfish gumbo and the beef sandwiches were incredible..didn't enjoy seeing the big cans of baked beans that were noticible in the kitchen shelfs but they must have a good doctor in there cause the bbq beans...

We went in to Mr. Bones on Gulf Drive at Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island, Fl for lunch. This place had a very relaxed atmosphere and their food was very tasty. It was a slow lunch time for the place so we had no wait time to speak of at all.

This is a very small place with few tables, the wait is long around dinner time. The ribs were very good, however the brisket is chopped so fine it looks like dog food. Some of us were turned off by the appearance. However, everything we ordered was tasty.

There are some great BBQ joints in the South. This is not one of them. It's adequate if you're on AMI & you have a hankering for BBQ. When you walk in and see tshirts & stuff for sale it makes you wonder. In fact, the tshirt is better than the BBQ.

We always put Mr. Bones high on our list when visiting AMI. The food is excellent...we usually go for the Indian inspired dishes, but their straight up BBQ is excellent. The intimacy of the space, the decor, and the energy of the place are exactly what we love in local dining.

This is a tiny restaurant and it helped immensely that we arrived before the dinner rush or we would have been in for a long wait. Mr. Bones says it is a barbecue place, which it does have, but only a third of the menus - the other third is Indian dishes and the the last third is New Orleans... More

Real pricey and small potions too heavy on molasses or syrup or something. Just not robust BBQ the way it should be. It's really something else like a noodle restaurant or something.
