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.Continued

  • "We went there for our Anniversary...Requested a corner table...food and service were great...It is one of my favorite places to go for steak.."

  • "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."

  • "Had a wonderful dinner here last night. Everything we ordered was prepared perfectly. The wait staff couldn't be more attentive. We will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This was my first time at Pace's, great food, very pleasant servers and a fitting ambiance for nice night out with my wife. We started with the Kobe beef meatballs, which were very good. We both enjoyed a very well cooked filet mignon, I had the delicious mac and cheese side and she enjoyed the baked sweet potato. I tried the blood orange martini, and didn't like it. All in all it was a great experience albeit a bit overpriced."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "We ordered the porterhouse steak for two and it was very good. We took our servers suggestion and ordered the sides to share for our party of 4. The wait staff was spot on. My only critic would be about the tea. I would expect a better quality of tea and a selection other than lipton. I would suggest Bigelow or twinings presented in a tea chest to the patron to select their tea. Earl Grey would have finished off the meal very nicely."

  • "Excellent steaks & now has a sushi menu. Salad comes with meal but does not state this. Always get house dressing - very good."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Had dinner at Paces on Saturday night. Right from entering the front door, we were well greeted. The service, food and atmosphere was excellent. Was there about 5 years ago and nothing has changed from the great dinner we had that night. It was certainly worth the ride from Merrick and it was a great location for a special night"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The dinner was good, we both had steak but I have to say for a Steak house it was weird that none of the "specials" were steak related. The Marinated Aged Rib eye was delicious and cooked just above what I ordered but it was still very good. The restaurant was about 35% full so the noise level was low to moderate. Service was excellent. Overall 8/10."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The steak was good; wanted more "umpf" since I got the special (seared with spice), but we'd go back. Service was excellent! The "library" room is a little dark; I know they want to replicate an "old school" ambiance, but the windows covered with blinds/visible AC units don't work. The sides were very good; no complaints. Quality of the meats were good. LOVE the no corkage fee!!! Wish we'd have known about this before, but I only found out because I asked. We've been there a few times, but not since they instituted this new policy. We'll go back."

  • "I like a comfortable dining room. Noise level was quite enough to have a conversation. I requested a booth and got one. I definitely would return they have the best steak. The sweet potato fries amazing and the salad dressing was tasty. Service was well-timed and friendly. We will be returning very soon."

  • "The service and the food were impeccable. I would recommend it highly. The problem I had, was with the valet parking. I did not want to take advantage of the valet parking service. My husband is disabled and I parked in front of the restaurant in the handicapped spot. I was told I could not park there and my car had to be valet parked. I asked to speak to someone in charge. I was told by this person that I had no choice, I had to valet park. I have an extremely expensive car and do not want anyone else driving it. When I left the restaurant, two cars were squeezed into one handicapped spot. I will not be going back if I am forced to use their valet parking."

  • "We were a party of 7 on Saturday night with a 7:30 reservation. The restaurant was filled to capacity. We wound up standing at the bar for an hour waiting for our table. After ordering 14 drinks and inquiring about our table three times we were finally seated. Although it was an extremely long wait for a reserved table, it was worthwhile. The manager redeemed himself by sending an array of delicious appetizers to our table compliments of the house. The steak and side dishes were also outstanding. We will definitely return for another amazing dinner. Hopefully without the wait next time!"

Overall a very pleasant experience. We did have to wait approximately 1/2 hour to be seated with a reservation. Not bad, we had drinks at the vibrant bar scene. Will definitely dine again."

  • "The three of us very much enjoyed our meals. My rack of Lamb was one of the best I have had in recent memory. And, as one of our members was a vegetarian, Patrick out did most by finding the righe combinations. The reduced special on the wine Letente (Chile) only added to our pleasure"
