Nothing special here! This is a place for food and that is about it. Not bad food but certainly not 'special' food - not a place where gastronomic memories are made. Order food, order drink, wait a bit and then eat - job done. Having said all that there is plenty of choice and you won't go hungry.

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.

Solid big serves of delicious food but don't eat here to be healthy. Prices are fairly high but so is the quality, service and decor so it is good value. Being local I have numerous favourite options on the menu. The food will never disappoints. If you're a big eater you will love Sporties.

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.

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 stainless steel accents. The menu is extensive. The oysters Fitzgerald were amazing, with bacon and... More

If you want filling food that the hubby likes beer-steak- chips- door stoppers- pasta then this hits the spot - It has just been redecorated and is very stylish and fun place to meet - it has loads of TVs on the wall so you don't miss any action of footy days. Also great for kids as well.

Sporties at the Anzac Hill end of Todd Mall is very popular with the locals. Great range of food which always makes choice difficult. Good sized serves definitely value for money.
