Friendly service at the small counter inside, lots of picnic tables for whenever the weather permits. Every topping imaginable is available. My favorite is the 3-alarm chili dog. You're sure to find a hot dog you can love here.

Captain Paul's hot dogs are the best ever and there are so many to choose from! The owner is super friendly. One night I was in the mood for one of his hot dogs and called to see whether he was still open. He was about to close but said he'd keep it open until I arrived. Who else would... More

We enjoyed the outside experience of having hot dogs, sandwiches and funnel cake fries today. The staff was especially kind and helpful. It was nice and cool outside under the umbrellas. The prices were fair ~ soda can and specific bottle beverages were $1.00. Again, fair prices. Hot dogs ranged in the $3.00 price. I enjoyed hot dog with bacon... More

My daughter and I frequent Captain Paul's for their ice cream sundaes and occasional meal. The shop is pretty cool and is heavily decorated with fireman and police memorabilia including patches, helmets, etc. to commemorate our community heroes. The service and service is always good. For the price, you can't beat it. The hotdogs and barbecue are good and you... More

This is very good for what it is. You would expect a hot dog and ice cream stand at a shore resort, not outside Princeton. However, what you get here is very good and well worth the money. The dogs are high quality, and there is a NJ-made condiment, "Golden Monkey", which has a singular, sweet flavor. Mix that topping... More

Great food and friendly service. The owner is fantastic and always give back to the community and supports local sports, schools, firehouses, and non-profits. Everyone there remembers you when you come back and genuinely cares what you think of the food and service. They always thank you for coming and supporting their business. A MUST try is their funnel cake... More
