Great service, great food, great prices, great decor! This was a recommendation from a stranger in a playground. I didn't really want a 'sports bar' and was pleasantly surprised. We rang at short notice for a group of 7 which included children; on arrival we...More

This place is fantastic. Great food, better then value. Great service and wonderful staff. We booked for a table of 14 and they were very accomodating.

Three couples, six different meals, all excellent. The boys had beer (4each) and the girls had 2 or 3 wines each and the bill came to $100 per couple, I didn't think that was too bad. Would recommend.

The Alice doesn't boast the world's best cuisine, but Sporties is definitely worth a visit for some really good pub grub. Try the Barra Burger, or most of the pasta dishes.

Visited for dinner, efficient and friendly service. A nice ambience, relaxed and bright. They had a broad range of food and drink to choose from. Our food was very tasty and reasonably priced. We would dine here again if we pass this way.

I grew up in Alice and no matter how many years I have been away Sporties is always my go to for lunch or dinner when I visit. The food and service here is always spectacular. It recently had an upgrade too. It looks great!

Sporties was the place we chose for lunch in Alice Springs on the first day after an early flight from Darwin. It blends in from the front side with the Alice Springs bush town appearance. However, the inside tables and booths were quite modern with...More

Desert Garden Hotel is a daytrip from Alice - return - not worth the travel for a meal. If you decide to stay in Alice for a few days, Sporties would be a good place for a meal - yes you can book and they will put some... More
