  • While I enjoy the fact that Illinois casinos are smoke-free, I prefer an alternate St. Louis metro area facility more than here, where their limits are more player-friendly. This was the monopoly faci...  more »
  • Very Nice small casino with big charm. Has play on deck when you enter and more play with table games after you cross over onto boat portion.  more »
  • Machines are WAY TO TIGHT Buffet. Food is way below mediocre. Elevator smells terrible. Probably the main reason it's such a lousy place is because it's in Illinois.  more »
  • parking really sucks here ...horrible. It's very small and lacks in the nickel poker machines with .25 max deals? Virtually all are 1.25 max deal machines or above, the security guards are atrocious with terrible manners and no class at all ...but even though? The buffet is the best of all the area casinos and the view is worth the price of admission. If a sunset is happening on one of the largest pools along the river, you're in luck from that alone? ...about 12 miles maybe 15 across sunset....then add it floats and the outside deck in summer ....great Escape place and the buffet just can't be beat...
  • Thank you for getting rid of the people who smoke, I don't care if I win or not just as long as I can breathe the air, just fantastic, I been playing at your place playing since 1992. I'm overjoyed. AWESOME!!!!! Thanks to the owner the place is now ship shape, and that is why I have changed my mind. I previously was wrong about my assessment of Alton Belle casino and apologize to the owner.
  • It's okay. The design on the exterior is unique, but interior is quite outdated. But still a great place to come, but sometimes you do get bored.
  • Argosy began as the Alton Belle in 1991 with 296 slot machines and 22 table games. It was a little itty-bitty riverboat that cruised for about an hour; we called it "The Baby Belle". You had to wait in line to purchase a ticket for the next cruise. A much bigger boat replaced the Alton Belle in 1993. Alton Belle Casino-II never ventured more than about a mile from its dock. Cruising ended in 1999, when Illinois allowed gambling boats to be permanently moored.
  • Bring back the Sunday breakfast/lunch buffet (delicous and BOGO with a card) and lower your beer prices and I will give you 5 stars.
