Restaurant Review


"Shut up and Eat" is a funky breakfast restaurant popular with families with kids looking for excellent breakfast & lunches ---- and fun for the kids to boot.


Now at two locations, they have opened a second location in Brick, larger than the original Toms River Location.


While the main reason to come is for the well prepared food served in generous portions, it's also a memorable, fun, entertaining experience for the kids.


The brain child of owner Annie Gauthier offers eccentric humor with waitresses dressed in silly pajamas in a setting of mismatched tables, chairs, tablecloths, and silverware.


There is a lot of clutter with skeletons at a piano, wall to ceiling collectibles, old style TV's playing 70's sitcom's ---- and if that isn't enough to occupy the kids, there is a huge toy corner.


Be prepared for waitresses shouting to everyone including the diners.


The menu offers a large variety of well prepared reasonably priced options.


The service though goofy, is friendly and attentive.


Come dressed in pajamas for a slumber party and you’ll receive a 13 percent discount on your check.

They can accommodate birthday parties for up to 80 people at the Brick location.


"Shut up and Eat" is open 6:30am - 3:30 pm (3:00 pm on Sunday), 7 days a week.
