The iconic Tauk at Trail’s End restaurant in Montauk is searching for a new owner to take over the storied property and revitalize it for continued success. The approximately 7,000 square foot space, which includes a 70-seat dining room and bar plus a 70-seat patio, first opened in the 1930s and has been a local institution ever since.
Perched on prime real estate steps from the beach and hotels in downtown Montauk, the restaurant benefits from heavy foot traffic and tourists in the summer months — its kitsch exterior and interior design belies its former charm. The business and real estate are being offered together for $4.695 million by Town & Country Real Estate.
An investor could to put their stamp on the historic property ripe for renewal plus the on-site six-bedroom house could also generate rental income or provide staff housing.
Whether the future holds a restored local tavern or an entirely new concept, The Tauk at Trail’s End represents a unique opportunity to own a slice of Montauk’s rich history.
