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!

Location is beautiful but the food wasn’t as impressive. It was good, but not great. My scallops were cooked perfectly but the corn & peas base seemed hard & dry. My husband described the lobster tagliatelle, one of their specialties, as “average”. The menu is limited. We expected more seafood options with a name like Showfish. Service was subpar. They were too eager to clear the table even though we had an early reservation, it was out of season, & they weren’t particularly busy. A dozen clams on the half shell came without a seafood fork. When one was requested, they first tried to substitute an espresso spoon. Really?

I did not realize that Showfish is located in the Gurney's... can't say I would have booked it if I had known this as the resort is pretty meh to me. The restaurant is located on the water, has a fun vibe and a good menu. I thought the food was good, but I wouldn't make the trip out just to eat here. There was an engagement or wedding party in the private room, but they only had half of the space - the rest had regular diners and all the doors were open so we had to listen to their DJ vs. the restaurant music. The other drawback was the wine selection, which was nothing to rave about.

Overall very good. Friends ordered the tuna and quite frankly it was kind of gross and presentation was weird. It was basically a ton of tuna (for 2-3 people) on a slab. No sides. No real presentation. Just a weird main dish with nothing else.

Otherwise all was good.

Food was not worth the money. Ordered a whole Fish to share and got a dry fillet. Vegetables were soaked in oil. No plates to eat what we wanted to share. Poor service and extremely loud music. Will not return.

The outdoor bartender was dismissive and not very friendly as she wanted to be done with her shift as we arrived having been told by staff to wait there. Other than that, the staff were friendly and the food was very good. The atmosphere was beautiful. We were seated inside with the patio doors open facing the water. Absolutely beautiful setting.

Great restaurant, 10/10 on food, decor, ambiance and service. Add to that a beautiful water view, plenty of outdoor tables and easy parking... we will definitely be back! Btw, the lobster rolls here are FANTASTIC.

Busy and noisy spot on a Saturday night. Reservation honored in a timely fashion. Service was excellent - just the right amount of attention. Drinks were generous and the food was well prepared. Pricy but not out of line for an upscale resort area.

Was a fine meal but a few options were not as advertised and all of our food (appetizers, drinks, and entrees) was brought at once and that was confusing. With some spotty service the experience was okay but could be better - I figure it was just a busy evening

Had to walk back to hostess after having been seated for 20 mins at our reservation to have someone come and take a drink order. Service was just not there. They tried making up for it with free dessert but the night was spent waiting for someone to pay attention to us. Food was good though.

We sat for 15/20 minutes before anyone came to our table to ask if we wanted drinks/food. When he finally came over he insisted we needed to order everything at once. Horrible service

The service was terrible, it took over an hour and a half for us to get our food. Our waitress never checked in or apologized for the long wait. The food was incredible but it was overshadowed by the poor service.

I enjoyed my lunch but after leaving I realized I left my credit card and had driven an hour back to Southampton when I called to confirm that they had it. I spoke with Jen and asked if she could mail it to me as I was leaving town the next day to fly back to Texas. She said no problem they would mail it… it has been over a week and nothing so far. I have called at least 30 times at all hours that they are open and it goes to voicemail EVERY time! So frustrating…I emailed and left voicemail messages too, NO RESPONSE!

I had to find the waiter to get initial service after being seated.

They didn’t get the appetizer order correct and it had to be sent back

Had to find the server as they forgot one of the two main courses.

Literally, had to get up out of my seat twice.

There was no apology or even acknowledgement of the service or order.

Was overall disappointing

Tuna not the best quality. Somollier didn’t know anything about correct wine temperatures. Red wine bottle put in an ice bucket. Gelato dessert arrived half melted. Our waitress tried her best to circumvent these issues.
