On a lark, I came here with some friends. It was a depressing time. If anything, I should be thankful that this place forced me to reconsider that time is not limitless and that one must seize the day and live every day like it's your last. The majority of the people at this place were 60 and 70 year... More

A place that can't afford to fix their lights in their sign out front probably isn't the best place to go. "ARGO" Seems like a weak casino with bad odds and not many options. The staff was a bit odd, but friendly and helpful. On a side note, be weary of some of the cab drivers; I'd ride with a... More

Great little casino with a nice variety of games. Modern slots mixed in with some older reel games. Several types of table games give this place a more comfortable feel than larger casinos. Close to St Louis a little off the beaten path but worth the trip.

I didn't like the limited selection of slot machines. I settled on playing machines that were older. At first they were paying off, but as time progressed, they sucked back my money, like any casino would. not a lot of good feeling about this.

Although I've lived in the area most of my life, this is the first time I've been on the gambling floor. The staff were friendly and helpful when I asked for directions and while dealing. The establishment was clean and easy to navigate.

If u r just looking to gamble, this casino is for you. Its small, but spacious (has three levels, a buffet, bar,restaurant, event hall, and outside deck). Because of its size, parking is easy - also has valet. Its on the river and has an outside deck to relax and enjoy views of the small town. People that work here... More

My husband and I go to casinos wherever we travel, and the Argosy was a nice place to spend a few hours. Not too crowded and some old and some new machines. I would go there again, as it's always nice to leave with more than you started with.

Stopped in for the Valentines buffet. I like the feel of the casino, it does have a unique feel among the StL casinos. However, getting on a table game was difficult. They had roughly half of them open, but the blackjack and craps tables were full. They also had Mississippi Stud and 3 card poker, which didn't interest me. They... More
