Had evening dinner here, the service was very friendly and efficient. The menu was varied and caters for most tastes including vegetarian. We chose to have the curried rice which is a meal in itself. I had the vegetable and my husband had chicken. a very tasty and filling meal and we did not have room for desert. The meal... More

We went here for lunch on a Saturday and we were the only ones in the restaurant. We thought that was odd, but figured we would try it anyway, as we were staying right across the street. My husband is a huge bbq lover, so he was excited. I am vegetarian and gluten free, and they didn't have a ton... More

Interesting little restaurant with tasty food that boost funky decor! Our chicken curry and veggie stir fry was extremely tasty! The staff was friendly and we didn't wait long for our food. It's small inside but what a fun place! The coffin full of iced down beer and sofa greets you as you walk inside. All the funky faces on... More

Place looks fantastic, ambience great, staff friendly and attentive, food such a letdown. Lukewarm, rice was like Uncle Ben's savoury, candied yams sound great but sickly sweet and vinegary, come on you guys, your staff deserve better than this!

This place is a hoot! It's a goofy little gem that you would hesitate to enter, as they have a skeleton sign that might scare you off. Inside it's jumping with activity, always full of happy people, and if it's full, the take out is great! I love the Indian style Biryani rice dish. It's scrumptious! Others in the family... More

What a fun dining experience! When you walk in the door, beer is arranged in a coffin for you to make your selection. There is a skeleton just across from it and the walls are decorated with colorful masks and art. The food is delicious. Loved the curried rice dishes but there are many other items from which to choose.... More

Mr Bones is a one of a kind family owned and operated business. We have lived and worked on Anna Maria Island since 1992. We have a loyal following of locals, and Snowbirds (as well as our snowbirds from across the pond). If you are looking for the same old corporate American vacation cuisine, you will NOT find it here. All of our food is actually home made in our little 40 seat restaurant. We are the only island restaurant with a separate menu for our vegan friends, so family's can go out to eat together. If you don't feel like eating out, after a long day on the beach or on the boat, "take out" is available. For groups of 15 + see our catering menu on our website.
