“Awesome history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Want to take a step into the past, and get a feel for old Historic Ocean Grove Nagels is your place. With its antique decor and awesome wait staff I find myself going there a lot. Nagel's prices cant be beat and they offer some of the best ice cream around.

“Step back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We spent overnight in a B&B in Ocean Grove and was not sure where to eat. We wandered down main street and came upon a real "find". Nagles Apothecary was like stepping back in time. Take time to read the "tables"!! Don't miss looking at the things they have behind glass from the former apothecary. I had their pumpkin bisque soup and it was fabulous. My husband had a turkey dinner, and everything tasted just like a Thankgiving Dinner cooked at home. We finished up with the ice cream....which everyone said "not to miss", and they were right. If you are in Ocean Grove make Nagle's a stop for any of your meals.

“Lunch was great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Went with a friend who goes there frequently. I had an omelet and it was great. My friend loves the soups there. Enjoyed the ambiance of the decor of an apothecary.

“Old fashion ice cream parlor and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Nagle's is a step back in time. Sit at the lunch counter and take in the ambience of a gone by era. Nice lunch menu and delicious ice cream sundaes shakes and malts. Stroll over on a warm summer night; it will become a tradition!
