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.

    My husband dines at Paces regularly for business luncheons. We usually will take the family there for dinner on occasion during the week. It was our daughters birthday and we were excited to take her new boyfriend to Paces for the first time. The evening started off bad when the valet ran out of parking spaces (we waited for about 15 min.) My husband parked in the lot next door and had to sneak past the security guard watching the spaces. Our waiters Rob and Adam were great! We drink red wine ; My daughter and her boyfriend like white wine . Poor Adam had told us we had to order our wine by the glass and not the bottle because their wine stock was low due to a regular flight tastings they hold during the week. I informed the Manager we were each going to have about two glasses of wine which would amount to two bottles. if they can accommodate a glass then they could accommodate a bottle which is more economical. The Manager magically appeared with a bottle of white wine and said he got it from next door. He then informed (schooled) us they don't usually serve a lot of white wine in a Steak House. Paces has an extensive fish menu; need I say more. The Chef had to be different then usual. Our baked clams were mutuantly large and overstuffed with breadcrumbs. We ordered the Mussles appetizer and they were VERY sandy. My son ordered his regular frutti d mare and once again the musskes were VERY sandy. The tomato sauce was also pasty. We complained to the Manger and you would think the right thing to do was to take it off the bill since it was obvious they weren't eaten. He did not. I ordered stuffed seaford and there was not an ounce of crabmeat in the stuffing. Just breadcrumbs. Those who ordered steak and the sides enjoyed their meal. At the end of the night we spent quite a bit of money on our meal only to have to walk to our Mercedes in the shopping center next door.

    My wife and I were in the mood for a great steak so off to Pace's we go. Problem is when we pull in there is one attendant parking cars. Took over ten minutes to park. Once seated I attempt to order three different reds to go with dinner, all out of stock. The noise level was unreasonable. The waiters had to shout in order to tell new arrivals of the specials of the day. I know steak houses are noted for the enthusiastic crowds, but this was beyond tolerable. Shame of it was the food was excellent. Oysters were outstanding. Our steaks were prepared perfectly and the creamed spinach was excellent. Wine by the glass turned out to be acceptable. Rob and Larry served us well. But we would never return, at least on a Friday night, to put up with the total lack of civility of the guests in general. What a shame!

    I have dined at many different steakhouses, Pace's is moderate to high in price. The steaks are aged and tender, however like most steakhouses, I feel the prices are a little above for what is served. Service was very good, I would recommend Pace's to dine at, however I have been served better steaks at lower prices at other restaurants.

    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.
