Description: 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.

We ate here on Sunday, the service is quick and friendly and I like that you choose your beer from an ice filled bath before you walk in the restaurant

We had ribs and rice with garlic bread it was really very good.

There is a sign that tells you not to ask for salt, pepper, ketchup etc as the food is perfectly cooked and you wont need it, and they were correct!

I ordered BBQ chicken, I think they bake it ahead of time then toss it on a grill for a bit. Mine was cold inside and awful.

I love this place. We frequent it and bring all our guests there when they visit. My sister asks to go every time she visits. We have tried almost every dish and my fav is Mongolian ribs with their awesome rice and potato salad is excellent. Fun decor great staff and place has been featured in many magazines for a reason. Can't wait to try some of the Indian style dishes next time.

This place is average at best! They boast about "home cooked food and a New Orleans trained chef".....the potato salad and coleslaw are straight out of the carton, ribs and chicken were baked in an oven then sauce slapped on them, no grilling or smoking involved! Meat was old and dried, could tell it was microwaved to heat it up! They have a big sign that says "no salt or pepper on table, don't even ask!", well they would be doing themselves a favor if they offered a little something to TRY and improve the food! I've eaten there twice and both times it was not good!
