Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island – A long overdue stop.

As best as I can recall, I have driven by that creepy looking skeleton sign for over 20 years now and I had never stopped long enough to see what it was all about. I mean anyone who has ever traversed Anna Maria Island has become familiar with that black and white sign featuring Mr. Bones the friendly skeleton that you just can’t miss as you pass it by. Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island.

On this most recent visit, we were pleasantly surprised by some much-needed drought-ending rain. Gosh, it was torrential rain too. Not the best day to spend on the pristine Anna Maria Island beaches but always a good day to adventure out in search of something untried and different and that’s just what we found at Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island. So, if you’re looking for something different, you won’t be disappointed when you stop in to try the culinary fare at Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island.

Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island – more than a pleasant surprise after a washed out day at the beach.

Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island is easy to find. We usually drive around “Googling” the names of restaurants that we pass in the car checking out the menu to see if we even want to park and go inside. On this day, the Mr. Bones Wesbite seemed to be out of service so that convenience was “out the window” as they say. I pulled in and invited my daughter to run in with me and check out the menu and boy were we pleasantly surprised with what we found at Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island.

Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island seemed to have something for everyone. Lot’s of curry specialties and fried rice plates either vegetarian or with chicken or shrimp.

Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island offers other great entrees, salads, ribs, baby back ribs and half pound burgers, there are also daily specials, with flavors from bbq to curry and some in between. We found the food to be good overall and the atmosphere at Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island was really something uniquely its own. There is a coffin filled with ice and craft beers that guest are invited to use “self-serve” as you’re being seated.

A decor that will get your attention. Mr. Bones BBQ Anna Maria Island.

There is bamboo covering the walls and the ceilings and lots of “voodoo-ish” decor at every turn. Feels like Jamaica, Haiti and New Orleans all collided at once and there you have it, Mr. Bones on Anna Maria Island.

Worth the trip. I will definitely be back for more of this afterlife dining experience duplicated nowhere else I have ever been.
