Bar-B-Q restaurant, but different

Small little place off the main road. Really unique menu, with Barb-que and also a unique selection of middle eastern/ Indian items on the menu. I got the pulled pork and it was decent, kind of wish I got the ribs. My daughter got a chicken curry and it was actually good. Overall we were... read more

In the South, BBQ restaurants are a plenty. On Holmes Beach, not so much. When our crew had a hankering for BBQ, we picked up from Mr Bones. With BBQ the meat is where the rubber hits the road, and the meat was cooked well. The have a multitude of sauces. I had their spicy sauce, and was pleased to... More

Came on Saturday night. Had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. Small place. Good was very good but service was a little slow. Once we received food waitress got busy with other customers. Appears to be only one waitress. Service could be better.

Consistently good experience at Mr. Bones. Good food, efficient service, laid back ambience, why can't all restaurants be like those?

We ordered carry out. Got the kids meals, ribs, chicken kebabs and the beans. The beans were AMAZING, and so were the ribs. In fact, everything we ordered was delicious. My only gripe is that when we ordered over the phone, we weren't asked which sides the kids wanted, and so the kids went a little hungry, but aside from... More

We've ordered ribs to go so many times but this year, we ate in. Love the coffin stocked with beer. The ribs were as usual the best I've ever had. And this time, chocolate bread pudding for dessert....3 spoons please! I waddled out the door. I'll be back!

The food was OK. We ordered the jambalaya, pulled pork, and chicken fried rice. It was OK. We have had better BBQ. But we were hungry and didn't want to leave the beach. So, it was fine.

Loved this place. The ribs were amazing! Loved the different choices for side dishes - a welcome change to having everything served with fries! Great waiter and atmosphere - a must visit if visiting Anna Maria!

Enjoyed baby back ribs. Not as thrilled with the side dishes but I am not a big fan of curry. Interesting decor.
