My daughter and I have gone to the Food Shake and truly enjoyed the food and the service.

When in Point Pleasant Beach...people should try the place.

“Great local spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

The Food Shack has opened where "the Cottage" was previously run by Ken and Carol (RIP Ken). This local establishment has a cozy and welcoming decor, and run by the owner Gail. Staff very friendly, and is a great spot for breakfast, lunch, and catching up with local happenings! My favorite is the Anchor, and the sausage links are amazing! Nothing better than sitting at the counter with hot piping Laws coffee and running into old friends! The lunch of a California burger was fabulous and we ordered the fries, came in a mini frying basket (so cute). Ordered the manhattan chowder to go for Mom, she loved it! So proud of my friend Gail, and how she in spite of a difficult year has decided to make her dream a reality!

“Feels Like Home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Even on the coldest day on the Jersey Shore you can find a hot cup of coffee and good conversation at this little shack. We go regularly for breakfast probably because it is so homey but more than that, they know how to make a perfect sunny side up egg with crispy edges. The link sausages are fat and sassy, split down the middle and grilled. Mullers Bakery (A Bay Head institution) makes their crumb cake and the delicious raisin bread they use for french toast. Every breakfast gets a little cup of fruit salad, even today on an ice cold day.. it tastes perfect with toast.
Extreme early morning visitors will have to fight for a seat at the counter because the fishermen know where to start their day, but after 7:30 -8:00 us regular folks find a table or seat without too much trouble.
I hear their seafood Mac&Cheese is excellent, but I'm usually too full from breakfast to go back for lunch. Hope someone reviews it one of these days.
