Car shakes and makes noises when I hold the brake?

As stated before, I'm completely new to cars so please try to bare with me if I have dumb questions to ask! I've had this problem for a while, would one suggest I go for a full tune up? There are several problems that I'm not sure connects with this one.

The car runs perfectly normal, but it's when I have to hold the break in drive that it starts making very loud clicking noises and it shakes like somebody shivering in -50 degree weather. This is especially true if, say I'm ordering through the drive through, the longer I hold it, the worst it seems to get! Everything is completely stock so I know it's not anything I've changed. Thanks!

It's almost obvious that your engine mounts. Most likely the rear and it seems like you have an auto.
Whether you are new or long time enthusiast, the first thing about getting the right answers is the information you provide us. Specifics, specifics. Year make and model, and tranny type, and any service that has been done before. Physical observations is also very important.

My apologies, my car is a 1993 lx accord and you guessed right, automatic, & nothing has been done to it out of the normal. Nothing was modified to the car, everything is completely stock.

Indeed it's the motor mounts. For an old car it's not unlikely. The front and rear the the most common ones to go out. The front dog-bone mount is easy to replace, however the rear mount will take time. Either you lift the car or you take out the intake manifold for an easy access.

What you could do is lift the hood, run the engine in gear with the brake fulling press. Have some one or yourself look to see how much of a shake it has. You could also observe the shake going from park into gear. It's going to be pretty obvious. If it shakes that bad as you described, it's most like front and rear are involved.
If you cannot do it yourself, then the labor could be back breaking.

What would be the estimated cost to replace the motor mounts, and not from the JY? I know it varies depending on how much labor costs around the area, but I would love an estimate of the cost itself of the motor mounts and labor fees that you know of. Is something like this crucial to replace short term and long term?

Well damaged engine mounts should be replaced. It might affect your shifting if left damage. Before you replace the mounts, check the vacuum hose on the rear mount solenoid and make sure it's not loose or broken.
The average price on the rear mount is around $70. The front is around $30. These are prices for after market. Honda OEM will be much more. I don't know the cost for labor for the rear mount, but the front you could do it yourself.

I had a similar problem in my Prelude. Well, I didn't have the problem, the previous owner did. He spent thousands trying to fix it. I am sure it probably is the mounts. However, a bandaid fix you can try is either advancing the timing or shifting into N when coming to a stop. Increasing the RPMs should make the car seem to shake a bit less.
