    Great meal for reasonable price. We each had the shrimp "Boat". (6 shrimp) with baked potato, asparagus, and cole slaw. Our server checked on us often, and the bus boy was quick to remove empty plates.

    No one came to talk to us for 15 minutes after we were seated. I believe the food sat for a while after it was plated. The shrimp and fries were only warm and the asparagus was cold. We dine there several times a year and this was by far the worst experience we have had to date.

    Dined outside, and the staff had the same wonderful and humorous attitude that I recall from visits in 2021. The food is excellent, as always, with the steamed and fried shrimp the classics, the crab cakes and slaw excellent too, along with the mashed potatoes and asparagus. Just hope the will bring that lasagna which which may have been an owner's family recipe.

    This was our first visit to Argonne House. Having lived on the Gulf Coast for 20 years, we were skeptical about the quality of shrimp at a Northern Michigan restaurant. The steamed shrimp were excellent and on par with the best shrimp served on the Gulf. Every other aspect of our dinner was outstanding. We ordered the Ribeye and panko crusted walleye. Excellent. Even the coleslaw and bread were great. Service was attentive, prompt, and friendly. Would definitely return if we are in the area again.

    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.
