Bones Roadhouse looks like a hole in the wall biker bar off Hwy 1 in Gualala. Once inside dollar bills, car license plates, and antique children’s pedal cars cover the ceiling. Grab a table by the window for spectacular views of the coastline, waves, and sunset. The menu is extensive but order anything barbecue, cooked right outside on huge pits.. The slab of St. Louis pork ribs is substantial enough to be split between three people. The pulled pork was tender and sweet. Entrees are served with corn bread and choice of two sides: mac and cheese, coleslaw, potato salad, Creole pasta salad, or beas and two types of sauce. Beer on tap goes well with the barbecue. Clam chowder is also excellent. All kinds of people are part of the ambiance. Service is terrific, prices are reasonable. This is a great place for a casual meal with great views and if you are lucky, some dancing and blues!

Enjoyed a very nice weekend lunch experience here, featuring a terrific view of the Pacific just below! The beer and food were very good and the price was fine. The menu was quite diverse and the service was Ok. We would expect to make a return visit if we come to this town again.

Been along time since previous visit. Still good food and brew. Very popular place in Gualala for a reason. Had the chicken with coleslaw. Very moist and flavorful. My wife had fish and chips. She said it was nice. Friendly service. Hope to visit again.

Bones is a straightforward ribs and brisket restaurant. Good brews on tap. The service is good as well. I was never disappointed at Bones. Sometimes it gets a little busy when the tourists descend on it but the staff always try to accommodate you. Also, they are great supporters of the community.
