Intriguing menu and uniquiely different type of place. Vegan options available

Fiance and I visit here for lunch a number of times during our visit and are pleased they are bold enough to offer decent vegan friendly dishes that are pretty decent.

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.

WE went in for ribs and they are delicious but when you scan the menu it becomes a treat. From the gumbo to several Indian dishes and then throw in a Thai app to start. WE shared the Thai app and it was good but the peanut sauce was a little thick. The gumbo was tasty. I had a chicken... More

We heard this place was great. We may have just hit it at a bad time. The BBQ chicken we had was dry and tough. The sides were really good and generous portions. Would maybe reccomend the ribs? It could have just been a bad night for them. If you love BBQ you should give it a try.

Mr. Bones is a must go for us every year. The place is small and kind of dive-y, but with lots of character (think drinks in a coffin). My husband loves their ribs and as a mostly vegetarian, their curried rice is way up on there on my all time favorites list. We always seem to get in and out... More

There is a reason this place has been on AMI for years - BBQ. Quaint and unique dining room or just get 'to go'. Across the board excellent and quite a few vegan and vegetarian offerings (Not sure how this works with BBQ) but go and find out. BBQ by the lb. with sides gives you chance to experiment. Get...

Small, casual place with New Orleans style cooking. We got there around 6 on a Monday night to find a very long waiting list. Decided we didn't want to wait and went to the beach to see the sunset which was beautiful. It was now close to 8 and we decided to give Mr Bones another try. It had emptied... More

Stopped in for lunch today on a lark, had seen this place last year but weren't able to make it in. Wish we had because then I could have had another great meal! The Jambalaya was my choice, succumbed to the large bowl - 8 shrimp, at least a dozen chunks and slices of chicken and andouile sausage, respectively -... More
