Consistently good

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.

We ate dinner at Sporties both nights we spent in Alice Springs. The food was delicious, the portions were large, the cold beer was great. It was a wonderful dining experience.

Sporties ALWAYS have great meals and service. My husband uses Sporties steak as the benchmark for any other dining experiences. You have to book cos its busy. Warning the meals sizes are big, the desserts are awesome. Enjoy

Great place to go, consistant with the high level of food they present. Never had a bad meal there, the 'doorstops' are brilliant - I reccomend asking for a prawn one. Nice atmosphere, well positioned in the mall. well priced, good range of drinks.

we ate dinner here once - ordered the steak with a Diane sauce - perfectly cooked but swimming in sauce whcih was more gravy the Dianne; and the chicken caesar salad which was excellent (too much chicken for me but it was good). the staff were very friendly and well organized and the atmosphere was fun and a bit sporty...
