    Clam Chowder and Shrimp were great...everything else at our table was just a little off. Like, why is there a dill-seasoned rose-shaped butter in the middle of our olive oil with seasonings? These flavors don't blend well...and it seemed like they were taking something simple and complicating it. Bring oil with seasonings...bring butter. Don't blend them into a new concoction. Other oddities like this, too. Also the lighting was very bright for a late evening dinner...also seemed off.

    The Argonne house was great! Their "world famous shrimp" lives up to the name, and the sides and appetizers were outstanding. The restaurant was very busy and still service was timely and friendly. Highly recommend!

    Looking for seafood in Charlevoix while on fall break in Petoskey led me to this fine understated restaurant. I had the local whitefish while my spouse chose shrimp in a linguine white sauce. I couldn’t resist shrimp either and was well satisfied with the generous shrimp cocktail. The cole slaw was the best I’ve tasted and comes with the meal. Great food, friendly service at a reasonable price makes this restaurant a winner when you are “Up North.”

    Food was great as always! Serve did a nice job as well! We had a reservation at 6:30 and had to wait 30 minute before getting our table and there were probably 6 open table in sight. They told us he had to wait for this couple to finish and they hadn’t even gotten there food yet. Eventually they sat us at one of the open tables. That is my only complaint. Other than that everything was great!

    One of my favorite Michigan restaurants. Just off the beaten path, this place is a gem! The building is beautiful and updated with a really cool retro vibe. The staff is very friendly and very attentive. And the best part is the food! Come hungry because you get a lot! I always go for the shrimp dinners, but sampled other dishes and everything is incredible!

    Beautiful night on the outdoor patio with heaters. I always have the shrimp but my husband tried the mussels and shrimp over fettuccine. Both were delicious! You can’t go wrong at Argonne.

    We have visited the Argonne for decades of fine dining, but this year was the best. Their restaurant was freshly remodeled and light and airy. Their staff was friendly and professional. The food was better than I remembered it. A great dining experience. I had stressed when I was directed to use the Top Table app for making reservations. However, it turned out to be very user friendly, and almost fun to fill out. I even had to change the reservation to the next day, and everything worked flawlessly. Great app. Overall, this is a must go to restaurant, and more than once. We had to drive over an hour to get there, but walked right in for our table. Well worth the trip.
