About 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.

Wonderful service and a delicious meal. More options than a usual steakhouse. The ribeye was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Would definitely recommend to friends. What a gem.

We have eaten here many, many times and as always another excellent dining experience. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable and very attentive and knowledgeable with regard to the food preparation and all the dishes being offered. Drinks prepared perfectly. A little energetic however there was a large birthday celebration. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I frequent Pace's a few times a year. We have never been disappointed and they are always consistent. Sometimes restaurants can be a hit or miss, not the case with Pace's! We were there with a party of 8 for my birthday (which we have done for a few years now) and we had a wonderful evening. The food and service were excellent, as always, and the manager had come around a few times asking how everything was. The staff is always pleasant, professional and accommodating. I love a great steakhouse and Pace's fits the bill!

Our favorite steakhouse on Long Island.
Love the Baked Clams as well as the perfect steaks. Appreciate how a dinner salad included with the meal. Not close to us but always worth the drive!

It exceeded my expectations. We had great steaks at a reasonable price. The dinning room was a bit noisy, but I would attribute that to folks having a great time.

This is our favorite steakhouse in a 25 mile radius. We go many times a year, so I highly recommend it. Be prepared for a hefty bill, but the food is always excellent. My complaint this Saturday is that the noise level was OVER THE TOP. it was almost impossible to visit with our friends. I suggest you inquire if there will be large parties the night you want to go.

Service was amazing and the people were professional and attentive. We got the porterhouse for 2 and the quality of meat was NOT up to expectation. I’ve eaten at Ruth’s Chris, Shulas, Homestead and other great steak houses and Pace’s steak quality came in behind them all. The sides were decent... wine selection was good (we enjoyed our wine)... salad was ok... dessert was good but the steak cut hindered the whole experience. The strip was overly tough with more fatty than marbolized, filet was tougher than expected (shouldn’t have been tough at all)... we ordered it med rare... was cooked correctly. $280+ later and we werent impressed.
We won’t be going back here with other steakhouses that offer better steak around.

Waited 40 minutes past our reservation, again, and not for the first or second or even third time. It’s every time. If they had any competition as far as food and service goes, we wouldn’t bother.

I was expecting the porterhouse for one to be more tender and tasty. Just seemed a bit bland when compared to other steak houses. So a bit disappointed and didn't meet expectations.
Service was very good.

As always, we are treated very well at Pace's. I actually booked the wrong time (6pm) so when I called to change to 630 they were very accommodating... not that easy of a task on a holiday Saturday night. The meal was excellent... steaks came out on time, hot, and cooked to order. We easily killed the mac & cheese and ordered double creamed spinach, since its THAT good. Their no-charge corkage fee can't be beat and we like the ambiance. Even hanging out in the bar, we had a nice time... their piano player was the niceest guy and can really work the keys. All in all, we loved our meal.

Anniversary dinner complements of my inlaws. I've said this before, but they cook the steak TO ORDER CORRECTLY, THE FIRST TIME. That doesn't happen at most places, even upscale steak houses, like Pace's. The BYOB is great, and the service is perfect. A go-to place for us, for sure.

Excellent service, but very loud. Our table was in the center of the room and it was a freeway of people back and forth. Ask for a quiet table in the corner. For that price, only a round of free drinks, make the traffic bearable. The food was outstanding. will try to go a second time.

I always love the food, but this visit was disappointing-
I listed this visit as an anniversary and was originally seated at a booth in the path of the wait staff back and forth to the kitchen, then next to the bar door (during what I assume was happy hour) and then to the main dining area where my waiter was cordial but was anything but engaging or helpful.
Again, I always love the food but.......
