    We both ordered the filet mignon with shrimp. Both were done to our liking and the beef you could cut it with a fork. This is definitely one of our favorite restaurants!

    Very disappointed in the food. The panko whitefish was more like a stove top stuffing consistency & then fried. I’m a fan but not that dinner.

    We always enjoy dining at the Argonne. Last night was no different. Our shrimp dinners were delicious & one person in our group loved her fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. Our only problem is the noise levels, because some of us wear hearing aids & it is a very busy place. Because it was so crowded, our waitress had a little difficulty keeping up, but we weren’t in a hurry. The portions are very generous, including coleslaw & bread for everyone. The food was great! It’s a perfect place to celebrate birthdays & holidays!

    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.

    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.”
