Brick-Toms River area Brunch?

Quine Jan 24, 2009 10:57 PM

A group of us would like to get together for Brunch about once a month (sorta monthly sanity check). We would be 8-15 or so people and Brick - Toms River area is central to all of us. Anyone have suggestions, recommendations?

    Just a skooch outside your target area is Bay Head and the Grenville Hotel & Restaurant. I haven't been there, but it's been on my list to try and they do mention brunch: "Sunday: Buffet 9:30am-1:30pm."

    You should call to confirm winter season details. And their coupon web-page mentions brunch mimosa drinks, which along with bloody marys, is a brunch critical item for me.

      This is a hard one. Although its far out of your area, the only proper Sunday Brunch is the one served at the Molly Pitcher Inn in Red Bank. No matter what they call it at either the Pilot House or the Lobster Shanty, I would stay far away.

        I would have to echo bgut concerning the Pilot House & Lobster Shanty.
        It would seem as though you're limiting your options - if you're not absolutely married to the brunch idea, why not call it lunch, go a bit later, and have an array of choices from which to choose?

          Bistro 44 right around the corner is probably the best choice in Ocean County

            Their website does not mention tehir hours at all, but I am thinking, from looking here at other posts, they do not do BRunch either.

            ANY places do Brunch anymore???
