Probably the best sized portions in town. Located centrally in the mall with a good feel and a bar if you want a drink. A good range of food as well.

We've been to Sporties twice as a family, and have enjoyed this family friendly restaurant both times. The delicious food comes out quickly, and the sizes are very generous.we will definitely be back!

I won't lie, I hated Alice Springs. But this place had a realy buzz to it. I just had garlic bread and a pasta dish - the portion was huge, it was a tasty and reasonably priced and the place was packed full of locals which was a good sign. I'd eat here over and above some of the other... More

I've dined at Sporties about 4 times. Their service and food are absolutely excellent! When you enter you're professionally greeted by the host; when you've settled at the table you're taken care of by a refreshment waitress; then when you're ready to order the food waitress takes care of you; food server always offers topping like fresh ground black pepper...

Eaten here many times and always good. In a town of high staff rotation, it's nice to have somewhere you know the food will be good.

Just had a starter-and-mains for two at this simple but very pleasant establishment. Service was friendly, food was excellent and portions were generous. Prices were reasonable too. My kind of place: unpretentious but simply good at what they do.

A wonderful family lunch in the Mall. Great place to escape the heat. Food was great! Huge servings at a wonderful price. Popular with the locals. Beer was icy cold. Thank you for your help in guiding us to where we needed to go. EFTPOS facilities available.

This place doesn't look fancy, but the food is great and value for money is excellent. My Calamari was cooked to perfection.

A great range of really tasty food. Huge servings and both well-cooked and well-presented. We ate there twice and the staff were lovely each time. Can see the place might be noisy later in the evening, but at family eating times it was absolutely fine. Highly recommended.
