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!

Unless there were additional levels we didn't see, it was quite small. Less variety of slot machines than we are used to. The whole place looked "tired" - aged and in need of some remodeling / redecorating.

My card club took the drive to Argosy last year. Yes, we went to game and we more importantly went to enjoy the Buffet! And enjoy we did. The variety of foods were fresh and well presented offering our most difficult to please several things...More
