If you like seafood, specifically shrimp and/or perch , then this is the place for you. Delicious preparation and generous servings were the keynotes of our experience.

Overall, it was a very nice place, but I think an hour and a half wait for our food was
a little excessive, especially when we saw other diners get their food before us. Our waitress was not the friendliest, which again took away from our dining experience. I would like to try it again because the food was delicious and maybe we would have a better experience next time.

We sat down on time. I totally understand the labor shortage. We ordered both our drinks and food within five minutes of being seated. (Our server took the order of another two top abt two minutes before us.) our server indicated things were moving slowly. The ppl that ordered two minutes ahead of us got their food before we got our drinks. Ok. Understood. Fifteen minutes later our server said our food would be right out. Thirty minutes later our server said our food would be right out. Forty five minutes later she said our food would be right out. Meanwhile NO food was coming out of the kitchen nor had it been. An hour later no food.

Amazing food, Victoria was on top of everything & Wendy made us some great drinks & was very welcoming right when we walked in the door. As good if not better than it ever was!

We have always enjoyed the Argonne house dealing with the old owners and the new owners. The new owners have done a beautiful job renovating it and the food is just as good as it was with the old owners

This restaurant is a must on your next outing . Everything was delicious. The coleslaw and homemade bread outstanding. We spit a meal of perch and shrimp and took home 1/2 . The waitress was beyond wonderful. This is definitely on our next trip .

Food was outstanding. The Argonne is experiencing shortage of staff like so many places. So service was a little slower but still not an issue. Waitress was pleasant snd efficient. We all had the shrimp.

We never got to the food. Drinks were good. The noise level was WAY too high for hubby and I, we left before ordering dinner. We couldn't even hear each other, sitting right next to each other. Not our cup of tea, even though this place came highly recommended to me. They definately need some kind of noise dampening system!
We would not go back.

We have been going to the Argonne since the 70’s & have never been disappointed. Great menu but it’s hard to pass up the shrimp dinners. New owners have done a great job redoing the facility.

Argonne never disappoints. They remodeled a few years ago and it’s quaint, yet modern. They have a piano player on Wednesday nights, which added to the ambience.

Absolutely excellent service the restaurant looks beautiful except for the big room that we were put in. Next time I’d like to sit outside or at the bar. Not crazy about the bread or the breading on the porch.

Excellent service at the bar with Wendy and Brittany. Food was very good all though because of low staffing, it took a while to come out. However, the wait was worth it.
Overall a 10 no doubt.

Argonne is one of our favorites and the new owners have done a nice job. The shrimp can’t be beat. The portions are generous. We had quite a wait for our food (almost an hour) which is the only knock on our visit this time. It’s a challenging summer Up North but they jd plenty of staff but suspect the private event overloaded the kitchen

Good service and nice for the owner to stop by and chat. This was the very first "eating out" experience for our two guests. They were thrilled with the food and the restaurant. Besides the shrimp dinner, they were thrilled with the onion rings and the strawberry shortcake. Thanks for another great evening.

Been to this restaurant quite a few times over the years. Has always been a favorite because it feels like you are really "out to dinner".
