A wide selection of flavors for ice cream - a delicious way to end the night. Some tables and chairs outside for convenience, but walking down the cute main street while enjoying your cone wasn't a bad idea either. Yum.

Good food fast service! An Ocean Grove staple. Nagle's was a pharmacy back in the day. Some old memorabilia lines some shelves that are displayed on the walls. A little out of the box, but that is what makes it so special. Will drfinitly return.

I have been to Nagles other times but today I was alone and sat at the counter. This gave me the perfect view of the short order cook and the sandwich/salad maker. I watched them in amazement. They spoke barely a word to each other...More

Nagle’s is a historic apothecary/pharmacy in Ocean Grove NJ that has been converted tastefully into a restaurant, café, old-fashioned soda fountain and ice-cream parlor. This is a very quaint setting on Main Avenue centrally located only 2 blocks from the ocean in the historic heart...More

Nagle's is a cool place to relax and have an ice-cream during the summer when the town is hopping. They serve light fare if you want to eat.

Service took forever. Ordered st Lenny’s salad to share (saving room for ice cream). And unsweetened iced tea. Tea was so weak we thought it was water. Salad arrived with no forks and no napkins. Turkey was dry and tasteless. Finally got three forks (...More

They had a fair amount of salads. The menu is huge and they were happy to modify stuff for me. Fruit cup was huge - fruit bowl it should be called. Just ask detailed questions. I'm also allergic to oregano and they served it... More
