We read about this restaurant on trip advisor and also got a recommendation from the visitors center in Mt. Airy. The salt and pepper fried catfish was okay. But the hush puppies were heavy and tasteless. Not what I expected. The side salad was okay and I liked the 1000 island dressing. But the tobacco onions that I added were... More

This was a very nice place with excellent service. We had a rack of ribs and a ribeye steak. Both were delicious. Loved the variety of side's. Would go back again.

13 Bones has good food, but is expensive on the weekends. We only eat there if we are visiting Mt. Airy during the week to take advantage of their Early Bird specials from 4:00-6:00 pm. It is always very busy there, but this is a good sign that it is a good place to eat. The menu offers a large... More

The 13 Bones establishment was very clean, updated and nicely decorated on the inside. Quick 15 minute wait to be seated. The buffalo shrimp appetizer was solid, lightly breaded and a good buffalo sauce. One of the nightly specials was the half-rack of ribs and Half chicken and sides of fries and Mac & cheese. Each meal you also get... More

My husband and went directly to dinner here prior to checking in at our Bed and Breakfast. I had the ribs and he had a burger. Both were very very good and there was no wait (at 6 on Sunday evening). The atmosphere was a bit loud (for me) and my only other issue was that my dinner came with... More

Our server, Travis was nice. Portion sizes good, tasty sides, but entrees not exceptional by any means. New York strip kinda chewy and ribs tender but didn't really care for the seasoning.

It certainly is easy for a visitor to understand why 13 Bones is rated Numero Uno in Mount Airy. The restaurant is located on Andy Griffith Parkway, well away from downtown, in a quiet, somewhat secluded enclave. On a weekend night, one might wish to anticipate a brief wait, but there are comfortable benches outdoors as well as inside, and... More

Lasanga here was highly recommended. Well, its not Italian style by any means. It was bland and just barely heated. But, if I sent it back, I was afraid that it would be heated in a microwave. The salad saved the day. Without soft surfaces, the dining room is loud. The waitress was attentive and checked on us often.

Went there twice in 3 days. First time had the local favorite ribs and they were excellent. This isn't my favorite sauce but the meat was falling off the bones and delicious. My bride went for the a steak and it was likewise excellent. Second trip, we both opted for the steak with the same results. Salads were crisp and... More

Excellent place to stop for dinner. Comfort food and excellent seafood that we enjoyed on our last two visits. This is where the locals come passing up the chain steakhouse right next door. We went out of our way to stop here on this visit.
