This aging steak house still offers the best steak in the USA. Yes, I said that. I travel the country. I take business men here from all over the US that have been to Gibsons in Chicago, St. Elmo's in Indy, Mr Bs Milwaukee, Pappa Brothers Dallas, Berns in Tampa, etc... Not one of these steakhouses has a steak comparable... More

Jimmy Pace really knows how to run a restaurant. Incredible selection and steak was to die for! Best ever. High recoomended. We will return many times for special occasions or romantic dinners. Side dishes were so good. Try the gourmet Mac and cheese and home fries side dishes. Looks like a cross between an old boys club and a dark... More

The food was very good and plentiful here. Keep in mind that everything is a la cart so it can add up. The porterhouse for two is the best. Don't sit in the mail isle when you walk in, it can be high traffic and annoying. Service is spot on and the cannoli is heaven. worth the money.

i had been there years ago after work. we always had great shell steaks with crispy onions on top. Well not the same anymore. It was my mistake not to send my steak back because it was tough and i got about 4 good pieces out of it. My husbands filet was so black he had to cut all around... More

We do wish you would've mentioned something to your server because we know our team would never want you to be unsatisfied with your meal at our place, Cathy. This doesn't sound like us at all, and we believe the temperatures in our kitchen must've gotten too hot. We hope you'll reconsider coming back. We're sure you wouldn't be disappointed... More

I have to say this last time going to Pace's that I was very disappointed. There were large groups of boisterous, obnoxious drinkers there with no regard for any of the other diners. I made repeated requests to the waitstaff and management, to help improve the experience, to no avail. The meal turned out not much better. I ordered a... More

Hadn't been to Pace's in over 10 years because last visit was unmemorable. Decided to go and try it again after friends raved about. The food was fabulous! Has become our go-to restaurant when I am feeling like a great steak!

Pace's has always been the best restaurant for over 30 years in Hauppauge and happy to say it still is. It's been a while since I've been to Pace's but glad to report its better than ever! Food was terrific and service from Jill was top shelf. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for great food and service.

There are many really good Steakhouses on Long Island so the competition is pretty stiff. I'm happy to say that Pace's is doing everything right to stay with the others!

At Pace's, we are extremely attentive to your steaks long before they get to the table!

First, we select only the finest meat available directly from market docks in the heart of New York City's famed meatpacking district. The cuts spend weeks under careful attention in our specially constructed aging rooms. This process guarantees that we serve only the tastiest, most tender cuts of prime beef that rival even the legendary old steak houses of New York City.

For those with a creative palate, our marinated steaks are bathed in a carefully prepared sauce for three full days until each succulent bite is infused with the full flavor of our secret family recipe.

Needless to say, our bar is fully stocked with a dazzling selection of fine wines and spirits.
