Description: Kelly's Steakhouse 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 on a volcanic stone. Enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and tantalizing aromas as your food cooks in front of you! And if you don't fancy steak, we have an extensive menu with plenty to choose from!

We were a large party of 13 adults that visited last Saturday night. The food was excellent. Great achievement on behalf of the kitchen to deliver the mains (which we're primarily steaks ) all together and cooked exactly as ordered. The food quality was excellent. The staff were so attentive and pleasant. So nice to have an excellent restaurant in Portlaoise

The glowing reviews about this restaurant need to be put into context. It probably is one of the best restaurants in Portlaoise, but that does not mean it's an amazing restaurant! At the end of the day this is just a steakhouse and doesn't offer anything approaching amazing dining. That being said the food is good, well cooked and well presented and not bad value either. The house wine was very good value and ok quality. The decor is nice and there was a nice atmosphere the night we ate there. The service wasn't great however. Despite having booked a table for 5 they didn't have any table ready and instead shoved the five of us into a table for 4 so it was a tight squeeze - especially as the main courses are served on oversized boards (what on earth is wrong with plates?). The funniest moment came when my friend asked the waiter what the 'speciality teas' were that were mentioned on the menu. He simply stated that there were too many to list and he couldn't remember them all - what is the point in putting it on the menu then?!? None of the staff seemed particularly well-trained. But as I pointed out at the beginning of this - it still manages to be one of the best restaurants in Portlaoise - which says more about dining in Laois than it does about Kelly's Steakhouse.
