  • Nice small casino. I'd give 5 stars if I didn't have to wait so long for a beverage while playing at the card tables. 
  • The casino needs some extensive work. The elevators are too slow, the stairs are too steep. It is hard to find a worker to watch a machine in order to take a restroom break and the boat is too compact...  read more »
  • Although we are not gamblers, we have frequented the Argosy's Captain's Buffet for several years now. Always been a delight--peaceful music, quiet, clean, large selection of homemade foods--for instan...  read more »
  • Been there twice after the local bars closed. Tonight, after digging my license out of the protective sleeve it was in because my argosy card wasn't good enough (although it was plenty fine every other time), the female security guard denied me access because apparently she thought I was drunk. I'm writing this immediately after she denied me access. Clearly not drunk. I guess if they didn't want my money, my 42 dollars an hour will take my business elsewhere. At the least, she could have said that before she made me dig my drivers license out of my wallet. Goodbye Alton. I guess St louis will continue to get my money, since this was only the third time I tried to go here.
  • If I could give zero stars.... All thumbs down for this sad remnant of what was once a fun Casino in Illinois. Visited Mother's Day cause mom lives slots. I hadn't been here for 20 years. We started with the Mother's Day buffet for 21.99 a person. Pure YUCK! Dried up dishes of grease covered grade zero food. Servers were kind - only good thing. I don't even want to remember the after burn! Bathrooms on this place aren't even fit for dogs. Finishes peeling, floors broken, mold smell & sewer smell, mirrors so old couldn't see reflection. The slots SUCK! Old machines that don't spin. Penny slots that cost 60ยข a spin...and never pay, and I mean never! I spent a hundred bucks on several different machines and even the newer machines were outdated and cold, cold, cold. No winners listed anywhere. Whomever owns this establishment offends the gambling tradition. This place exists only to SUCK the pennies, nickels, and dimes stolen by parents from children's broken piggy banks. Mom had fun, but she's 82 & blind. The least this place could do is offer wheelchairs for the elderly who continue to blow bucks on this misadventure.
  • Fun place to go for a night out. Recently added the hops house which has a great selection of brews
  • The exterior sign is super nice. The interior is quite dated. With that said, the tables have much lower minimum bets for craps, roulette, and poker compared the nicer local casinos. If you want to gamble just for fun with low minimums Argosy is the place for you. Not an elegant place. While there are people who look as if they rolled out of bed at any casino, t-shirts and other casual attire is common.
  • I had to reset my password. The promotion with first time players. No info on that. I played all in one day. Then I hear u get that you get some at a time.
