Showfish is an ingredient driven, casual-fine dining restaurant located in the newly renovated Gurney's Star Island Resort & Marina. Part of the rejuvenated Carl Fisher Property, the restaurant gives diners a simple, yet elegant take on the world class cuisine of the East End food community.

Sourcing as much of our ingredients as possible from the farms of the Hampton's, the local fisherman of Montauk and neighboring producers, we are offering an a la carte menu for our guest to enjoy the best the area has to offer.

While there is a focus on produce and seafood, there will be plenty for guests to enjoy outside of that scope, too. We are looking forward to you joining us this season!

We dined here on our first night in Montauk. It set the bar high! The views and ambiance are romanti. Our waitress went above and beyond our expectations. The food was amazing I had the bone-in rib eye and I normally do not finish my meal, however I could not stop eating the delicious steak. The fresh catch was Snapper and that also was delicious. I would definitely return.

The hostess sat us down directly underneath the music speakers. We asked for another table, but she instead agreed to turn the music down. Half way through the meal the music became very loud, where we had to shout at one another to be heard. That combined with the price of our meal ($450+ for 3 adults and 1 teenager) made the experience very unenjoyable.

Go somewhere else. We ordered a caesar salad, the lobster kimchi fried rice and the shrimp cocktail. Except for the fried rice, the rest was simply regular and I am certainly not picky.

In addition, our table was unbalanced but no one in the staff cared to move us to other table. The simple answer was there is no availability at the moment.

Out waiter was polite and kind but the food is just regular.

Had the lobster kimchi rice. Wasn't as tasty as it sounded. The pork belly was yummy. For entrees we had the lobster tagliatelle. Was very good but just a little too spicy. could definitely tone it back a bit. I had the sea bass which was very good. Menu was very pricey. The beef entrees were absurdly priced. 75 bucks for bone-in ribeye? Cmon now.
Service was very good. Waiter was very pleasant and attentive.

We had looked forward to this reservation our whole vacation. The restaurant clearly over booked themselves. We weren’t seated until 15 minutes after our reservation. As we were being seated we were walked past the entire beautiful restaurant full of life and lights until we reached a dark deck away from the entire restaurant that had no lighting and only a few tables. This is where we were seated. The service was terribly slow. We waited on our second course for an hour. During the wait, the waitress never stopped to apologize, ask for another round of drinks, or even explain the delay. She was not very busy by the looks of it - it seemed as though she was avoiding our table due to the obvious delay. All in all, we were very disappointed- especially because we’d hoped this experience would be one of the highlights of our trip.

Beautiful ambiance, started with oyster and two salads for the table, salad were smaller than described and expected. Entrees of steak, oysters and halibut were all delicious.

Showfish is a gorgeous restaurant located in the equally gorgeous Gurneys Star Island Resort. The food does not disappoint; and it shouldn’t for what you’ll pay. It’s a special occasion place that from appetizer to dessert is top notch. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. ‘‘Twas a wonderful evening.

This was our first visit, keeping in mind this was during the Covid-19 pandemic, and we wanted to dine outside. We arrived early for our reservation, knowing we would need to wait a few minutes. However, we waiting closer to 40 minutes to be seated.
When we were seated, it was in a lovely area outside the lighthouse with fire pits and heaters . It was a lovely experience, good service, excellent food, and a lovely atmosphere.

The food was quite good as was our table and the nice water view. The service, however, was extremely slow and not particularly pleasant. We probably wouldn't go back unless we couldn't find a reservation someplace else.

Delicious dinner and Josh, our server was great. We sat in the fire pit area which was a little windy but that’s what you expect eating on the water. The scallop ceviche was so fresh. As was the tomahawk special with the angry lobster. We will definitely go again.

Had a reservation for 8:30 last week, was not acknowledged by the hostess, even tho I was in front of her, she decided to seat the person behind me first, had to wait 15 min standing, PAST MY RESERVATION TIME...
Sat on the table for a while.. no water was offered, no bread was offered, we had to ask for everything, the server was good i guess, people got sat down after me and got water and bread...
NOT WORTH THE PRICE, NOT WORTH THE WAIT.

Really great food. Only thing to remember : the MBP options are expensive - $120 for tuna ( although admittedly the best we’ve ever had).

Wine list could include organic wine as well

Delicious date night dinner with atmosphere - the open windows make you feel like you’re still on the beach at sunset. I had scallops and my boyfriend had the halibut, both were great. Tuna app was average and clams casino were amazing.

Food taste and presentation was excellent however we were disappointed with the service. When we arrived they were just starting dinner service so we were one of few tables so there is no excuse. The white wine was served warm and they did not come back to refill our glasses, we had to do ourselves. We ordered the second bottle of wine before entrees were served and they didn't bring it until we were halfway finished with our entrees and it was warm which was very disappointing. They also didn't inform the food runners of who got which dish so we had to awkwardly raise our hands to inform them what we ordered. It also took a good 30 min for the maintenance person to come turn on the heat lamps which we asked to be turned on as soon as we arrived. They should have thought of this already and had them turned on before our arrival as it was cool and windy. I'm not overly picky in general and rarely write reviews. I hope this is helpful to the staff to improve and make it a better experience in the future.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us by a trustworthy lady! We have been coming to Montauk for years and we were very impressed with everything about Showfish - The food was interesting and not too overwhelming - The tables were lovely and private, there's a vibrant bar scene if you are looking for some fun - And the restaurant was far enough away from the bar to be very quite and lovely.
The service great .
Can't wait to come back.

The Fish and Chips dish was supremely underwhelming for there were only two tiny slips of battered fish. For $24 I would not recommend this dish, when traditionally, such a meal is bountiful and cheap.

The acoustics are weird and it makes for a very noisy atmosphere. The service was subpar too. But we found the food to be excellent. The short rib was outstanding.
