The King George Whiting was over $30.00, little expensive for my liking. So I went with the cheaper pasta dish. Service was quick, but after you had finished it felt like you where being pushed out the door.

Really awful overpriced food - mediocre service and the punch line was an announced credit card surcharge. Clearly relying on tourists who will not be returning and shrugged when questioned about service charge. Dreadful!

Sporties has been around for as long as I can remember. Providing great tasting food and nice big size portions, is why we frequently dine here. They have changed many menu items throughput the years, although luckily, some of their signature dishes like the Spicy Barramundi, Steak Gambari, Beef and Bugs remain.

Food has always been good, meal size is always large, always a good range of desserts to pick from. Kids have had a few birthday dinners there, staff have always allowed me to drop off the cake and store it. Staff have always been friendly and helpful. Good idea to book if your looking at Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights.

Sporties is an OK feed, but a little production line and lacking in the kind of character I prefer in a restaurant.

One of the most consistent menus - hasn't changed for a long time, but doesn't need to. Offers a great range and choice and everything I've ever eaten there has been fantastic. This is my choice of lunch spots in Alice.

Sports looks like a street cafe from the outside and a pub from the inside, nothing pretentious here. But the food is a first class surprise. Been there a dozen times on a dozen trips, and nothing in Alice can beat it. Had the roast duck last time, and have never had better even in China. Service typical Central Oz... More

Sporties was recommended to us by our tour bus driver! Thanks John! Good menu, most things are there and the service was pay at the bar when you order and it comes as soon as. Worked for us! We both had the Angus steak which was faultless. Bit noisy in the bar but we ate outside which was fine!
