My husband had an ice cream cone and I had some of it too. We waited for a short time on a line and we were lucky because many times when when we walked by the line was very long. The ice cream was good as was the service. They have a system and it works! The inside of Nagels... More

We had lunch and 3 dinners at Nagles as well as 3 nights of ice cream cones. I had the meat loaf one night and had enough for 2 of us to have for lunch the next day. The food is good and prices reasonable. And the Maine blueberry ice creah is good!!

Lots of food, but kitchen was filthy. Good prices, taste good, central location, if you eat ice cream you can sit out front, but no other food allowed. They do have very limited seating. Not pleased, waiting time was 3/4 hour.

Great food on dinner menu. Lots of it, delicious, fair prices. Breakfast is good - except for the home fries (never had anyone drowned them in paprika before so we wasted a lot of money there) - but the quantity is great. Delicious homemade vanilla cokes. Outdoor seating. Cute inside. Yummy ice cream. Huge brownie sundaes. Only open until 9... More

Always crowded, especially for the outdoor seating under a large awning. Good burgers and ice cream for the price

Nagle's is the only reasonably priced place in Ocean Grove. Mostly an ice cream place but serves sandwiches which are not large but decent and in the 6.50 price range Not much left in the way of cafes and restaurants so Nagles is it. Has outside tables and is dog friendly

There comes a time on a hot summer day, when leaving the beach for a ice cream. This is the place to head for. There are tables and chairs, so you can sit. If you feel the need to eat actual food you can get a sandwich. What a nice corner spot. Take a break. Serge a little. Take the... More

Waited nearly 45 minutes when told it would be 20, wish they were more accurate with their estimates. It could have been a mistake, but it seemed like they just wanted our business. The buffalo wings were ridiculously tiny and some still had feathers, yes, FEATHERS on them! The hamburger was the smallest hamburger we had ever seen and it... More

This is an in door, out door cafe two windows outside one to order and the other to pick up, a good variety of flavors. There are some chairs and tables on the sidewalk under a tree and umbrellas. This is a good place to cool off after (or during ) a day at the beach. The ice cream is... More
