I have removed my previous review of this place and added a new one. It was permanently closed and called Kellys Foundry, but reopened mid 2016 with the new(ish) name Kellys Steakhouse. Inside it has been completely redesigned, and the horrible 'pit' is gone, replaced with nicely styles booths and more screened off tables. The menu and food is still... More

We dined here for convenience rather than a choice and were very pleasantly surprised. The service was very attentive, the menu was extensive and the quality of the food was excellent. American Steakhouse without the expense.

Would recommend a visit, food is fab, atmosphere was lovely and the staff were friendly, what more could you ask for on a night out. Well worth a visit the only downside is the bar is very small.

I was looking forward to the opening of the steakhouse and I must say I was not let down. The decor is amazing since it has been completely refurbished. For starters we both had caesar salad, I had chicken in mine which was gorgeous. There is a coating on the chicken and made it so tasty. For the main we... More

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!
