Recently had dinner here at sporties. Service was great, food was good but my partner ordered a meal with no chips. You'd think since he ordered just salad they would substitute no chips with more salad but they didn't. Drinks took a while to be...More

The pork burger was very good, the peri peri chicken salad had far too many olives, but was fine otherwise. Service was good and efficient.

Very happy with several meals here - went back a couple of times in our stay. Well located. Good menu. Was packed on Sunday night when everywhere else was quiet

Called in for lunch. Attentive helpful friendly table service in modern refurbished restaurant with individual inside booths incorporating own wall mounted tv. Todd Mall seating available outside. Relaxed setting for a beer and unrushed lunch. Great Angus burger, also had good calamari and chicken burgers.

Stopped by for a quick lunch after spending the morning at the Botanic Garden and around town. Cold beer hit the spot and the burgers were good too. Service was prompt and outside seating was just perfect on a sunny winter day.

I think I ordered the wrong dish. But when you order a beef salad you expect a balance of ingredients - not just beef and lettuce and a smidge of pumpkin and feta. Service was very good though.

The food was excellent but because of its' popularity often the wait for a table is long and so is the table service. It is a good family restaurant but very very noisy.

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
