Mr Bones barbecue, Holmes Beach – Anna Maria Island

Originally opening their doors in 1992, Mr. Bones BBQ in Holmes Beach is a staple restaurant on Anna Maria Island, and especially when it comes to barbecue. The restaurant itself is an extremely unique environment, which is prevalent as soon as you walk through the front doors. A large coffin stocked with a variety of beer for you to take and enjoy while you’re dining can be found at the entrance. There’s even a skeleton, not a real one of course, at the front of the restaurant which adds to the fun found inside the dining area. Feast on several different types of barbecue ribs, chicken, or beef. The baked beans are delicious, as well as the beans and rice. Not a fan of meat? No problem! Mr. Bones takes special care of their vegan and vegetarian customers and dishes.

 

“This care includes buying, when possible, organic and local ingredients. Or, like soaking and seasoning our own black bean recipe, and using organic quinoa as one of our binders for the black bean burgers. Just as we ask our customers with allergies to inform us when they order, we ask our vegan customers to let us know so we can take every needed precaution in the kitchen when preparing their meals.”
– Direct Quote from Mr. Bones Website

 

Mr. Bones takes pride on making their food from complete scratch. This includes all 5 of their sauces. And their BBQ sauces are so good, you’ll want to take some home with you, and luckily you can! They bottle and sell their original BBQ sauces AND their hand-mixed dry rub right out of the restaurant.

If you haven’t already visited Mr. Bones BBQ Restaurant, then you need to! Make sure you try their Mrs. Frost’s Strawberry Shortcake for dessert (if it’s in season). It is to die for!

WHERE DO I GET PROPANE or CHARCOAL  FOR THE GRILL?

We know that grilling is a big part of the beach vacation experience.  Please check your rental’s amenity listings to see if a grill is provided at your location.  This information page describes where you can find propane or charcoal for Anna Maria Island Grill.

CHARCOAL GRILLS: Charcoal grills need new bricks for each use of the grill.  Charcoal bricks are not provided for your rental.  However there are several local stores where you can purchase charcoal and/or lighter fluid.  Publix Market (3900 East Bay Dr., Holmes Beach, FL (941) 778-5422); Walgreens Pharmacy (3200 East Bay Dr., Holmes Beach, FL (941) 778-0451); Anna Maria Island General Store (307 Pine Ave.,  Anna Maria, FL 34216 (941) 779-9200)
