    Disappointed w whitefish bites. First time having them they were small 2x3 pieces lightly coated and flask fried. This time they tasted like mush pieces squeezed into a hush puppy look. Horrible. Sad we were to go to a concert in town, place was packed and couldn’t ask for a redo. Baked potato was cold….butter didn’t even melt. Very very disappointed. Others had shrimp and hot. Next time I’ll not hesitate to send it back. For a $131.00 meal it was sad

    We were seated in the back room, which we appreciated because it was quieter. Our original server was an assistant manager. Very nice, and she even turned the air conditioner up because we were cold. Our shrimp dinners did not disappoint. Generous portions of bread French fries, asparagus, and coleslaw came with deliciously fried shrimp. This place runs a well oiled machine.

    Everything was great except the main course came out when we were only about half done with appetizers. This is very frustrating as it seems like you are being rushed out.

    Tempura battered shrimp was as good as it gets. The coleslaw is creamy and brings back memories of the old supper clubs. My wife had the walleye. A crispy crust, thicker than most and the filets were huge. Great French fries. Well definitely be back.

    Definitely not what we remember the Argonne to be. Unfortunately, our waiter had much to be desired. 20 minutes to ask if we wanted a drink, and then another 20 to ask about appetizers, which he then proceeded to take with our dinner order. Wasn’t friendly or open. I understand that with the times, and no one being able to find help, but wow….

    Shrimp both fried and steamed were as good as the hype. We Also enjoyed the calamari in regard to taste and presentation. Good draft beer selection and generous portions. You will love the yellow sauce. Very enjoyable night out. Nothing to complain about here.

    My parents dined at the Argonne House when it was a classic roadhouse diner in the 40s and 50s. My husband and I dined here with friends in 2017 and did not feel any “ retro”magic. Since then the Argonne has changed hands, been remodeled and has an updated menu. We loved it!

Our waitress, Chelsea, was always smiling, polite, and made sure we were enjoying ourselves. The manager, Robin, greatest us upon arrival and also stopped by the table to make sure all was good. A+++ to The Argonne house!
