Okay food, good portions, reasonable price. Ice cream to die for! Good service. One of the two restaurants in town. Gets crowded fast.

Great ice cream, which you can get at the window. That's why there is always a line, particularly after concerts at the Great Auditorium. And it is worth the wait. It is also not that expensive compared to other places at the shore.

Converted old pharmacy. Neat room. Food is typical of any sandwich shop. They have ice cream too but you can only buy from outdoor window. Worth going to just to seen what an old pharmacy looked like.

Nagle's is the Ice Cream choice for many who travel to Ocean Grove. A scoop of ice cream is more than enough, so when you have two or three scoops be prepared. Their different choices to select will make you think when making a purchase.

Had lunch here with the family. Good sandwiches (although a bit pricey) and delicious ice cream. Some really unique flavors offered as "specials". Wait staff was pleasant and efficient. Get here before the high noon rush, same for dinner time as there is often a line out the door waiting to be seated. Ice cream window is more efficient if... More

All we had was ice cream. It was good ice cream, but in my opinion, nothing to write home about. Cool store, atmosphere is nice. It's decorated like an old malt shop. nice people, decent prices. Outdoor seating as well.

Loved the order/pay at one outside window and pick up at another. Had some interesting and predictable delicious flavors. Nice benches to sit and watch the town activity.

My wife and I had an enjoyable lunch experience at Nagle's. Both our sandwiches (BLT & Philly cheese stake) were excellent. This was an enjoyable lunch.

Long lines, the place to go for Ice cream and dinner. some nights the service is rather slow. But remember Ocean Grove in the summer months is a very congested town with narrow streets. come off season it's a pleasure.
