Had a really lovely meal which I struggled to finish as the portions were very generous. We visited on a Wednesday and were surprised at how busy it was. Lots of friendly helpful staff on. Really enjoyed it.

Was there with a group on Friday nite. Largish group but only one waitress. Limited Group menu and never informed at time of booking. Very expensive unless had all 3 courses. Nice but if going in a group beware.

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!
