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.

Enjoyed the food and I'm not a BBQ lover but the decor is very dark. Definitely not dingey though. Waitresses were very nice too.

“Takeout ribs and wings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

Got takeout spicy spareribs and wings. Staff friendly, helpful and cheerful. Service quick despite a busy restaurant. Restaraunt looked small but quirky. Would like to return and eat in sometime.

Don't be put off by the outside or the interior. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and the best ribs ever.

“Pretty average and my daughter sick”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Having driven from Miami we got a takeaway from Mr Bones which was not far from our house.

Our family had veggie burgers, chicken wings and a rice dish.

The burger was soft and tasteless. The wings too sweet. And it was all very dry and boring.

Worst of all it gave my daughter food poisoning and killed the first couple days of her holiday.

“Fun place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Quirky little place ,you choose your beer from a coffin on the way in . Service was good ,very friendly,nice food could,nt eat it all. Only disappointment was the fixed gratuity as we were a party of 6 which made our bill expensive.
