“Great little fun place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Had a really good time here. From the moment you walk in they make you feel welcome, inviting you to grab a beer from the coffin! The ambiance is fun and the service very good.
The food was fantastic bbq - so good my daughter who had already eaten dinner still devoured some ribs with a huge smile on her face.
Its a little out of the way for me but will definitely visit again, if you are in the area I advise you to check it out.

“Much Better Than I Expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Really good tender flavorful baby back ribs. Very casual place with limited seating. Definitely worth a visit if you like ribs.

“Good food, weird decor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Our food was very tasty, but my 2 year old couldn't keep her eyes off the "scary masks" on the wall. Still, I would say that's it's ok for family dining, just make sure to explain that the masks are for decoration. Good food, and we'll probably go back on our next trip down.

“Fun atmosphere, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Mr. Bones' décor is very creative! Picture voodoo + creole + Indian--sounds weird, but it really works. Add to the neat surroundings a fabulous menu and you've got a real hit. You'll choose your bottle of beer from a terrific selection that's iced down in a coffin! We've had a lot of the dishes and every one has been superb! I think they closed around 9:00 the night we were there.

The atmosphere was very cool and different. The food was delicious and Mr. Bones offers some unique sides to try which we enjoyed very much. I will definitely come here again when I am in the area.
