A word from Pace's Steak House - Hauppauge
Nothing arouses an appetite more than a sizzling, juicy, tender steak... hot, fresh from the broiler, resting on the plate before you, ready to be carved, ready to be eaten...a Pace's steak.
Our meat is different, and you'll taste why. We pay a lot of attention to our steaks long before they even get to our kitchen. First, we select only the best shells directly from the butcher market docks in the heart of New York City. We don't trust anyone else to age them. We do that ourselves, with weeks of rotating under special lights and fans to produce the tastiest, most tender cuts you'll find this side of the Tunnel. Our marinated steaks are bathed with a secret brewed sauce and steeped in it for three days, until the unique flavor permeates every bite. Then we prod and we poke, until we're satisfied that the steak we're serving is a steak you'll remember. The Pace Family--four generations of serving food to the public. Now serving the best steak we hope you'll ever have.

    This is fine restaurant for special occasions as it can be pricey. We went for a birthday celebration and wanted a good steak dinner. The steaks are great and there was enough to take some home. The ambiance was fine as we were in a quiet room.

    Food was good, service not good. I never complain but this has to be said. Servers were very unprofessional. First sat with no menus no water and noneone came to table, But they Saw us sitting there like that. Took forever to tell dinner specials and then did not come back for a long time. Young guy with dark hair who was suppose to be our other server ignored us. He He thought setting up tables around us was more important. I watch this helper see us sitting there with finished plates for a long time and it just keep walking around our table. I would Not return. I left feeling very taken advantage of. You come for a nice dinner and you leave feeling ripped off.

    I've always heard, "don't order steak in a fish house, but you can order fish in a steakhouse". This did not prove to be true. I ordered a scallop special that was described as having a bacon vinaigrette and it turned out to be cloyingly sweet. The first bite was OK but it became obnoxious after a few. No one came by so I made the mistake of sticking with it- it ruined my dinner experience.

    You couldn't ask for a better team of servers! The food was outstanding and the chef was extremely accommodating with our table's multiple food allergies. For a few years I stopped going due to overbearing servers and food became mediocre. Now I'm going back! I don't mind spending a little more for this wonderful dining experience! Check them out!

    Food was amazing. Thursday special is price fix 2 apps (great baked clams), perfectly cooked chateaubriand for two, two lobster tails, some veggies, and then dessert. Excellent cheesecake and surprisingly delicious sorbet. Wine choice was very nice, too. Pleasant service. Popular place so the room was a bit loud but there were no screaming kids so it was fine. Will definitely return!

    Very disappointed. My husbands steak had to be sent back three times. I registered saying it was his birthday but there was no celebratory mention of it. Steak ended up costing $4 more than menu price. Waiter told us ways it could be cooked but neglected to tell us there was a separate charge. Once the party of 11 came in out waiter no longer came to our table. Our waiter team was rob and mark

    After a cool reception we enjoyed a really excellent onion soup and Filet Mignons. The vegetables and the Steak Fries have been very good. The wine itself was perfect except that the waiter put all the wine scale during decanting into the claret jug. I think he meant well, but a small introduction of correct decanting wine would help. The restaurant is too dark. I for one prefer some brighter ambience, but maybe other people find that charming. All in all it was a good experience and I can recommend the Pace´s.

    Went to celebrate an anniversary. Started with some oysters, with the porter for two as the entree and garlic mash, fried onion brick, and creamed spinach side dishes; all of which was amazing. The staff was very courteous and attentive and even made the recommendation for the wine we ended up choosing. This was my third trip to the Hauppague location (the Port Jefferson one has closed) and I would have given the same high remarks for those visits as well.

    In the past we have been quite pleased with all aspects of the restaurant.However our recent visit must have been an off day.Although we were the first customers at lunchtime (and the only customers at that moment) service was slow and when the food was served a steak panni arrived instead of the chicken panni I had ordered.By the time the correct meal came my companions were just about finished with there meals.It would have been nice if they had comted a desert or beverage but nobody seemed to be steering the ship in the middle of all this.

    I needed to reconnect with a couple of friends and discuss business opportunities over steak and wine. Our server, Chris, was 5 stars! Porterhouse was as good as Peter Lugers. The only blemish was the bar tender. She didn't greet us while at the bar and wasn't very attentive. That said, drinks were fine and everyone can have a bad day once in a while. No biggie. Highly recommend

    Another excellent dinner at Paces. The friendly staff is always willing to go the extra mile to accommodate requests, help you select a good bottle of wine, etc. I have eaten at Paces many times over many years and have always had a delicious, perfectly prepared steak, fish or pasta dish etc. If you see a special that you like, get it, especially the Oysters Rockefeller. Our meal last Sunday was perfect. FYI: It's a busy/noisy place, so ask for a quiet table away from the kitchen and bathrooms. You won't be disappointed.

    We arrived early and the other members of our party were not there yet so we waited at the bar ordered our drinks and found the bartender to be very engaging, friendly and makes a great martini, almost immediately we were in conversation with other people a great start to a night of great food, their marinated steak is the best and the lamb chops are fabulous. Next visit we will arrive extra early.
