After a long day it hit the spot

After a long day of exploring my family was famished. We wanted some bbq and were not disappointed. We had ribs and grits and the latter was amazing. I don't really remember the ribs, but the bacon grits were well flavoured and a new treat when we come back next year!

Don't know who decided they made the perfect ribs that they don't need salt, pepper, or ketchup and please don't ask for it since the ribs are cooked to perfect New Orleans style so the sign on the wall says...well I have had NO and KC ribs and these don't even come close...they were awful...swimming in some kind of sauce...

Gumbo excellent, fun atmosphere and decor, ribs OK, very good but not memorable. We would go back again to try some other items on the menu.

Love, love, love Mr. Bones. It's always our first stop on the Island. Cool decor, ice cold brews and perfectly seasoned dishes. Shrimp and grits, my favorite. Jambalaya is my second choice. Havana Hash is great. Bread pudding to die for. Need I say more. Caveat- looks like a dive when you pull up. Don't judge a book by its... More

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.
