This Floating Restaurant In New Jersey Is Such A Unique Place To Dine
Did you know that there’s a floating hot dog stand hiding in one of New Jersey’s wild and scenic rivers? If you’ve ever gone for a float or paddle along the Delaware River near Milford chances are you’ve seen this unique New Jersey restaurant floating right in the water.
Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, we’ve been notified that the restaurant has permanantly closed.
The Delaware River is one of the most scenic places to paddle, float, or kayak in all of New Jersey.
In fact, thousands of people drop in every summer from the Water Gap near the New Jersey-New York border and down through the Amwell Valley area.
Delaware River Tubing is the most popular outfitter in the area, and they'll help you plan your tubing or paddling trips, if you don't have the right equipment or if you don't want to have to shuttle yourself back to the car at the end of the day. They take care of it all!
The best part about floating in the Delaware River is that you'll get to visit one of New Jersey's most unique restaurants - The Famous River Hot Dog Man.
Hop out of your float and hop in the water! You'll get your feet wet while you wait in line to place your order.
The menu is fairly simple, with options for burgers and hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, and veggie burger options. You'll also be able to snag a soft drink, some chips, or some candy to satisfy your snack cravings.
It's no surprise that hot dogs are the best seller here, but everything grilled up is fresh, delicious, and flavorful.
If you're tubing with Delaware River Tubing, your meal is included in the day float price, too!
The Famous River Hot Dog Man is open to anyone making their way down the river - you don't have to be part of a guided tour to stop and dine.
Enjoy a full day on the water and the most unique restaurant in New Jersey when you dine in the middle of the Delaware River. What a fun way to experience the Garden State!
