Staff couldn't be nicer! So helpful and attentive. My only criticism is that the day time menu is the same as the night menu. Makes lunch very expensive! Would... More

Food was excellent with huge portions . Good selection for those looking for an alternative to steak. Staff were really attentive although our waitress could have been friendlier? Kids menu was good . Not overly cheap but worth it all the same .

Not fine dining, yet copes with an extensive steak, ribs and fish menus with brilliant tastes. everything is well seasoned and tastes are amazing. Staff are helpful and there to make the experience as good as possible. Te layout with cubicles help with the occasion as we felt we had privacy in a busy restaurant. The restaurant appears to be...

Steaks were great. Fish - tuna was "off". All staff except Manager were superb. prawn tampura wasn't great either. I think the Manager has a problem with foreigners - he dismissed the person that had the tuna - which was gone off. It wasn't until other staff repeatedly told him and he then checked with the Irish people in the... More

Description
Kelly's Foundry Grillhouse has, in short space of time, become one the favourite restaurants for Portlaoise locals and visitors alike. Black Rock is our speciality - this is an exciting and healthy dining concept where you cook your own choice of meat (all our beef is dry aged and 100% Irish from Hicks in Cork) on a volcanic stone. Enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and tantalizing aromas as your food cooks in front of you!
