After a visit to Sporties,we were impressed. The staff very friendly and efficient. The food was very nice and the beer was well priced. Our hotel was charging $ 8.00 for a beer and sporties was $ 5.50. Well worth a visit.

Great food and service. Good music and atmosphere. Well priced. No wifi but that was a bonus encouraging people to communicate.

Recommended by local to visit, we weren't disappointed. Had the Angus burger, almost couldn't finish. The best burger I've had in years. The service was excellent. My only complaint the beer doesn't come in pints.... 😕 I'd recommend a pint n burger any day.

The place may not look like much, but they have a wide selection of foods on the menu. The meals are among the best we’ve had in Australia. Servings are large and prices relatively low - certainly value for money. Compliments to the chef!

A friend and I went for dinner, but I was left disappointed. I had the fried calamari with chips and “salad”. I requested more salad than chips. The serving of calamari was huge! And reasonably tasty. However the chips weren’t nice at all, and the...More

Sporties is a great place to take friends. Great steak, try the Gambori. Can't wait for them to open up again after the Christmas break.

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
