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.

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 instance, crag Rangoon, chicken Marsala, homemade meat loaf, bananas foster. NOW--TVs on the wall, rap music playing, not nearly as many food selections, and quite a few of those looked like they... More

It's kind of tricky coming from the bridge to park at on-campus parking. Turn is not clearly marked. We walked in to find the security guards piddling with the roll thing to walk through. Kind of annoyed, they notice us, and are immediately the nicest guys ever. Asked if we were staying for unlimited crab legs (start at 4). We... More

I'm not a gambler but we will stop on special occasions and when traveling with others who want to. I have to say I like this one best drink stations up front friendly staff nice Riverview's out on smoking decks. Slots are looser than St Louis

From the security guards who welcome you when you walk in to the cashiers, everyone is very kind. The non-smoking policy is the best. You MUST be 21 to get in, even to eat, but the new 99 HOPS HOUSE, like Hollywood Casino, is awesome. You cannot get cell reception, but that's kind of nice....getting away from it all and... More

It was my bright suggestion to go to ALTON for my friends bday--instead of the STL casinos---6 of us...played various games ...NO ONE won ....elevator smells bad (has for years)...the 3rd floor was closed off....I apologized to everyone...bad choice...never again....maybe if we had eaten there...I could have had one nice thing to say!

The stuff are very friendly and welcoming. The last time we were there, it was to enjoy the lunch buffet. But everyone was very nice and wished us luck for gaming! We were a little disappointed that they no longer have the buffet specials. But their buffet didn't disappoint. Good, fresh hot food. And a great selections! Those desserts!!!!!

Everyone was super friendly and helpful. The buffet was delicious, except for the desserts. They seemed to have been leftover a bit too long.
