We came into Ocean Grove on a Monday and that evening had the Salmon salad and Salmon dinner at Nagle's. Both meals were delicious and filling. The service was quick and extremely friendly. We were anxious to eat there again on Tuesday evening, but sadly, we found out that for some strange reason, they closed on Tuesdays and only serve... More

Nagle's Apothecary Cafe is a sweet, old-fashioned coffee shop situated on a corner in Ocean Grove's charming downtown. We stop there for ice-cream each time we are in town. There are usually some great flavors to choose from (I had the salted caramel with almonds this time) and the service is friendly. I notice from other reviews that diners have... More

The fact that this restaurant is in an old pharmacy which really still looks like it, makes it very special. It's fun but quiet dusty! A placing guy us actually placed in front of the door and he seemed quiet arrogant, which made me consider to go in at all. However, we did! Our 5 year old son loved the... More

The place has a lovely old fashioned feel and the hamburgers are great! With seating available inside or outside and a varied menu there is likely something to please everyone.

Nagle's Pharmacy Café in Ocean Grove NJ is a step back in time. Now set as a restaurant, but the character of the old pharmacy remains with memorabilia and basically no changes to décor. There is a counter with barstools along one wall. The whole place reminds me of the small town pharmacy where I grew up. The food was... More

Nagel's outside ice cream window offered the best selection of flavors. Can't wait to go back this summer!

We were excited to try Nagle's. My boys wanted ice cream, and I wanted two sandwiches to go. There were lots of empty tables outside and we sat down to eat ice cream and wait for the sandwiches. There are signs on the outdoor tables that are confusing. My kids ate their ice cream happily, and when my sandwich was... More

The ice cream is nothing above average. The food is nothing above tasty. I enjoyed this place, but it is nothing special. The prices, you won't find better! Overall, this place is very good. I advise you to try it!

Great but not lingering service, great atmosphere although a little hectic and crowded on the weekend. Sandwiches were good. Potato skins were excellent! Outdoor seating for only ice cream is a little confusing.

Nagle's has the best ice-cream cones in town. They are huge and the ice-cream flavors are delicious. This place reminds me of the 50's and 60's growing up. I also love their club sandwiches.... huge and delicious, made fresh!
