Over 40mins of music blaring and changing song every 30 seconds. I had a headache before my meal arrived. No way was i considering additional drinks or dessert. Watched and listened to others yell their conversations across tables.. Parmy was pretty good. More cheese for...the win. Served with (unordered) gravy on the side, but salad was DROWNED in dressing- inedible. Shame, as i was looking forward to some veg. Service from the bar was good, and meal ready in good time (was tue special, so prob had a constant line of them ready to go) Lots of tables set up for 6 or 8 people, taken up by singles or couples. Might need to re-evaluate the midweek crowd.More

Found this little gem as we wanted something nice but cheaper since we are travelling around. For a kids pasta, pizza, main (roast) that included dessert, 2 x wines, one pre mix and one soft drink it was under $70. All the meals were really...tasty as was the sticky date pudding for dessert. This pub has daily specials as advertised on there website. We dropped in on a Sunday.More

We have been to Alice for two visits , whilst transiting through, which meant we had a few days to kill… the bar service is great , the food second to none, (for pup food). pricing is quite reasonable , We spent a reasonable amount...of time there this past few days . We would recommend this as a great place to eat & drink, the atmosphere is excellent ! The only thing lacking is the toilets are a bit small, and because of this probably need more cleaning . ( we visited 2 days in a row, this visit)More

The 2 of us at our first visit holding some groceries in shopping bags from Woolies were looking for a quiet dinner and came across this Uncle’s Restaurant in Diplomat Hotel. It being a friday night, was crowded and noisy. However, we remembered a taxi...driver’s recommendation for it. We ordered a scotch fillet and seafood linguini. The food was ok, standard pub grub. There were long queues to order drinks, which is unusual but a good thing, were less queues for food. However, it was disappointing to see some people, females as well as males, ignoring the orderly queue for drinks! And the bartenders serving them, too. Not good. May return but will avoid weekends, may be better.More

Good sized meals coupled with highly specials. Tavern is good value and if you are into loud singing Friday night is for you.

We really enjoyed Uncles, even went back a second night because it was so easy, relaxed and the place to be. Such a family Friendly place, staff were super helpful, food was good, they have great specials most nights, $10 pizza & burgers. Great place...to get a good feel for Alice Springs by people watching, hanging out with the locals and the overall environment there.More

Ate here a couple of times during a recent stay in Alice. Mainly stuck to the schnitzels and found couldn't really go wrong. Big meals at reasonable prices. My favourite was the Mexican. My partner also tried the Sunday roast special (pork) - $18 including...dessert. Was good but decidedly smaller than most of the other meals. The pub has an excellent range of beers available; the wine list is a bit more limited. But then I don't think AS is renowned as a wine-drinking town. Uncles is attached to the Diplomat Motel.More
