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.

This is a unique restaurant. Cold beer on ice served from a coffin! The ribs are excellent and the potato salad was almost as good as my own. The price is great. Convenient location on the free trolly line. I would definitely go again the next vacation.

This restaurant is wonderful. Very unique with delicious menu items you won't find anywhere else. But don't expect salt and pepper on the table...you won't need it!

Every year for six years, my husband and I do take out at Mr. Bones before the Super Bowl. The ribs and chicken wings are the best on the island and even the potato salad is fantastic. We always do a second take out for company who visits. You will not be disappointed.

Great little place with good food and cold bear from a coffin. We enjoyed the ribs, chicken and loved the curry rice.

Quirky place with a great vibe but we just did take-out since the view from our beach front condo was hard to beat. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was disappointing. This isn't BBQ. Have you ever been a a BBQ place and not smelled any BBQ or smoke when you walked in? We ordered ribs, chicken and sides. Sauce was awesome but I think the ribs and chicken are just oven roasted. There is no rub, no grill marks, no smoke. Ribs were tasty and fall off the bone but chicken was just soggy/flabby. Coleslaw was generic and sweet potato was disgusting. I think they add canned apple pie filing to candy it but it just tastes like gelatinus mush. Glad to have tried it but wouldn't go back.
