A stop at Mr. Bones is well worth the stop off the beach path (located across from the beach). When we visit the island our son makes certain Mr. Bones is one of our destinations. Carry-out or dine-in you will be glad you made the...More

We used to love Mr Bones. Would get there once a month for ribs and more. Then, about 2 yrs ago it lost its spark. Don't know if it changed or we changed. But we stopped going. To be fair we decided to give it...More

This restaurant came recommended, but 2 of our party of 8, who are veggie, were rather put off by the name! Don’t be - there was lots of vegetarian options & everyone loved their meal.

An interesting mix. Some Cajun, some Chineseish, some Indian. Hard to classify. But good. Worth going to.

Cozy restaurant with friendly service. I liked the self-service beer coffin. We got in and out with a group of seven in a reasonable amount of time during a busy week. Food was good but not the best barbecue I've had. Good food, good service.

Cannot understand the good reviews on here. The restaurant smells of stale fat, the many hideous wall ornaments, masks etc, are covered in dust, can only imagine the state of the kitchen. The food was at best warm and tasteless. Do yourself a favour and...More

We visited here on a friends recommendation and with eight of us including two vegetarians and a fussy eater I was unsure if it could accommodate us. It was great. It’s a no frills restaurant with great choices and service. Would return

Hi Paul, Mr Bones is quite small so may be best for you to ring ahead (941) 778-6614 if you are a party of 5, though you should get in okay. Plenty on menu for non-alcoholic diners as I am one myself! (Always the... 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.
