Very Nice small casino with big charm. Has play on deck when you enter and more play with table games after you cross over onto boat portion.

Machines are WAY TO TIGHT Buffet. Food is way below mediocre. Elevator smells terrible. Probably the main reason it's such a lousy place is because it's in Illinois.

This buffet used to be the best in the area. They have been doing cut back and I guess this is one of the areas they decided to cut back in. They redid decor' but they forgot the food! Generally, the food is just bad.

The grill at Argosy has a great staff and the food is yummy! Mostly grilled and fried, but never greasy. Two can eat for the price of one. Then you can put the extra cash in the video poker machines! ;) lots of fun!

The Alton Belle is a typical Illinois river town casino. Inside everything is poorly lit and depressing. The Alton area downtrodden can be found spread around the casino spending their savings on the penny slots. It's definitely not an exciting casino experience like you could...More
