Dig in, get dirty and just eat the rack of ribs and enjoy the food coma afterwards. Beer comes from an ice-filled casket.

A fun place! Before we got our table we could pick our drinks from a coffin (?!) full of ice and bottles with beer, soda, juice etc. I ate a great beef burrito. Two family members had very good ribs and our youngest was happy to choose from the kid's menu and to get ice-cream for dessert. I was so... More

A must on the list of restaurants, especially when you want BBQ. No need to leave the island with this gem just up the street. We've been there 3 times in the last year. And that is good considering all the places to eat in the Bradenton area.

My family and I passed the restaurant several times but the outside looked uninviting. Spoke with fellow vacationer would said the same thing, but decided to try the food, which he loved! We went the next day for lunch and I can honestly say that the ribs were in the top three of those I have tasted over the years.... More

Was getting a little tired of seafood and had heard this place was fun, quirky and had great food. The recommendations were completely accurate. The decor is casual and the menu is diverse combining barbecue and Indian. We tried all sorts of dishes from Mongolian baby back ribs to chicken shish ka Bob to honey chicken. All were delicious and... More

Grab your cold beer from the tub and sit down to munch on the tenderest ribs in down. Literally fall off the bone. Other items on menu, not just da bones. Great casual place with friendly service/

Stopped for dinner at this really unique restaurant and we were not disappointed. The mixture of southern BBQ and Indian cuisine was a stroke of brilliance. Excellent food and service.

My entire family, including my 10 year old son really like coming here when we go to Anna Maria Island. They have beverages iced down inside an open coffin and a skeleton water fountain inside. The food is really good. This place gets very busy. I recommend going early for dinner or using their call ahead seating option. The dining... More

Just tried Mr Bones on Anna Maria Island FL. Very wide menu-- vegan to India Curry. The beer selection iced down in a coffin is quite novel. I had the rice curry. Very tasty. Would recommend this place to everyone. Definitely a one of a kind place.

Great place to go when you are in the mood for something other than seafood. The ribs are really good (I wouldn't say amazing). I love the sides, esp the rice and potato salad. We always get takeout so we can use our own condiments. I need more bbq sauce to dip my ribs in :)
