Worth the wait

It is very rare that one doesn't have to wait in line as Day's is so popular. The variety of ice creams is excellent and the quality is the best. From a simple cone to an extravagant Sunday the choice is worth standing in line for.

I was really impressed with the hospitality in the ice cream section of the restaurant when I needed a cup of coffee and the manager brewed a special pot just for me! I came back the next day for repeat coffee. The outdoor environment is perfect for absorbing the Ocean Grove atmosphere.

Days Ice Cream parlor is an historic sight with an old fashion porch to sit and eat your ice cream,. It's a treat all around. Starving Artist consistently has good food you can depend on, a nice clean atmosphere and good service. If you don't mind eating ice cream, which packs on the pounds any way you look at it,... More

Best ice cream hands down with a lovely wrap around porch to sit and enjoy a summer night. The place is gorgeous staff is very good. Can't say enough about it. Brings you back to a time with a much slower pace and when food was not all done in a second and home made was everything!

An Ocean Grove institution. Every single night of our family vacation ended with a walk to Day's. Creamy, delicious, the best ice cream anywhere!

I love Day's. I can eat their Moose Tracks sugar free ice cream and you can tell everything is fresh when you order toppings.

Always home-made, always new flavor combinations. Usually there is a line out the door. I love trying new flavors, whether it be 2 styles of cones, or in a cup.

The best ice cream in Ocean Grove in the longest continually operating ice cream parlor on the East Coast. Cash only, and still the line is out the door and down the street on a summer weekend evening. Try going about 2 PM when they open for the day, or later in the afternoon for a respite from the beach.... More

A tad pricey but great ice cream! We usually go a couple times each Summer, especially when the grandkids are here. Sometimes the wait in line is almost 1/2 hour during vacation time.
