Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great place for kids, with great food as well. We ended up eating here 2 days in a row because the food was good, my niece could run around and play, and the cost is reasonable!

Really could we have picked a worse place to eat. Greasy, grislily I would be amazed if staff had not spat in it before trying to serve it up. If I hadn't paid before hand and went home hungry I might not be so pissed...off.More

Constqntly getting humbugged for smokes and food. Hadn't had my meal for 5 minutes before someone wanting to have some of my food. Very different experience from a few years ago, don't bother paying for membership if this is the experience.

We went last night with friends and all enjoyed our chicken schnitzels - they even have a gluten free version which you don’t see very often! All came with sauces/gravy as ordered and chips/salad. We ordered one with mash/veg which there is a small extra...fee for the veg. Veg were a bit over cooked but mash was great. Atmosphere is a bit blah inside, so we sat out in the beer garden overlooking the ranges watching the storm roll by. Would definitely eat here again! We felt safe & comfortable both indoors and out, also when leaving in the carpark. They have different ‘specials’ (or themes, last nights was Asian night) for each night of the week.More

The Gillen Club really has become one of the few really safe venues in Alice Springs to go and enjoy a good meal and know that your car is probably pretty safe in the car park, too. The staff often work under considerable pressure, but...they strive to do their best to serve their customers with a smile and that’s a standard that has been proven to work well for them for a long time. The Gillen Club deserves your patronage and the staff will appreciate your support and your respect as they deliver their best customer experience to you.More

A well known eating place in Alice and worth a visit. A step up from the local pub serving a good variety of dishes.

Food was perfectly cooked. Even though the kitchen was getting smashed meals didn’t take long to be served. Fantastic play area for the kids. Great seating where you can watch them.

Club has multiple tv's for all sports but refuses to put volume on which given it is football finals time is extremely disappointing so much so they lost my patronage and I went elsewhere to watch and enjoy the games. Food is above average, staff...are quite friendly but not catering to customers because of a minority for a few hours is extremely disappointing.More

We recently moved back to Alice and this was the first place we went out to donner at and became members immediately. Visitors can sign in if from out of town I believe. Excellent bar, good prices and choice. Food is pub fare but really...good and good size meals. Best thing for us with tow kids is the outdoor play area (with undercover seating, fans and huge TV for sports) as well as an inside play area (again with seating and two huge tvs - more sports!) Is always bust, but staff are fast to serve and is always plenty of room for everyone. Has pokies, but they are out of the way and don't disturb your meal.More

Staff is friendly but was a bit confusing with the ID situation. Makes sense since it's a combined gambling place, bar and restaurant but felt a bit odd to show ID just to get food. I ordered a hamburger. Food was good, no problem. Just...a bit too expensive for the type of place imo.More
