Went on a Sunday evening with my parents. Food was gorgeous. I normally don't order steak but I couldn't resist, it was cooked exactly as I requested, as was my Dad. Desserts were also to die for. Staff were helpful and friendly and the décor is well thought out. I will definitely be returning.

Under the new name of Kelly's Steakhouse, and at limited opening so far (indeed, offering a "pre-opening" menu), this was in some ways a risky pick. However, a large group had a range of the options on the menu (I had calamari and hake), and we all found the food to be tasty and well prepared, and offered good value... More

Hmmm, some strange reviews for this restaurant. It's been permanently closed for almost a year! Although for some reason it's still listed on the Heritage hotel website.

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!
