We stopped in in the middle of the afternoon and had to leave after about 20 minutes due to the frigid temperature. I understand A/C for comfort but there needs to be some latitude.

What we really found pleasant about this casino was there was no smell of tobacco although smoking was allowed. Lots of slots.

Most of us locals still refer to the Diamond Jo as "The Boat" from when it was still a riverboat sitting the harbor. So don't be surpised if someone asks if you have been to "The Boat". The entire staff is friendly. There is a good selection of slots and table games. All three restaurants have great food. The Buffet... More

I was in Dubuque on a girl's trip and we stayed close by the casino...visited twice and had a good time..there's a pretty good mix of machine types and denominations...beverage servers were pretty attentive. Saturday night seemed to draw the local crowd and some of them were on the rude side...I was sitting at a machine, had money in it,... More

We went to Diamond Jo's for dinner at the Woodfire Grille and had a fantastic experience. The food was great and the waiter was very knowledgable about food and wine pairings. We really enjoyed it. Afterwards we stopped in the casino to do a little gambling and at first I thought they had no smoking. The air was so clean.... More

Very nice casino and if you go on a Wednesday and are over 50, you get some very nice perks. There is a free slot tournament, you get a buffet for only $7, and you also get free tickets to the comedy club. The buffet was very good with a nice selection of food choices. We ate the evening meal.... More

This was my first time ever at a casino since I have turned 21 and it was a very enjoyable experience. Although I lost all of my money, I had a fun time and the Fish Buffett was excellent. The only thing that confused me was that they had a "No Smoking" sign on the door as you walked in... More
