Enjoyed our visit however Buffet closed too early, had to eat in the bar upstairs... Parking area was not well lit. Drinks were pricey for a Casino. We will revisit again but not highly impressed.

We couldn't find a slot machine that would let us play and we definitely didn't win. We did have a very nice lunch at their buffett.

I know casinos are going to take my money, but they could at least let me have some fun while they're doing it.

We were here for a wedding. The casino was nice, but we didn't have good luck at the machines... We ate at the sports ar. It was ok, but nothing to write home about.

It's a casino and I expect smoke but on Friday afternoon and evening, the smoke was pretty heavy. I like the older slot games, which are very difficult to find.

As casinos go it's pretty standard fare. You love them when you win, hate them when you lose. One plus here it was less smoke filled that I anticipated. When will smoking be banned in all public places? Way overdue.

I wished there was a bigger area for non smokers. Also it didn't seem that lively when I went, hopefully they have more going on.

Not much of a gambler but decided to pop in for fun. The casino was clean, staff was friendly, music and drinks were good. Couldn't ask for much more out of a casino. Played some machines and didn't win big but $20 could easily last you an hour. Overall a good experience.

We like this casino. When we visit Dubuque we usaully try to stay within walking distance. The mississippi Moon bar has some good shows within reasonable cost. The bowling alley is fun when you get tired of gambling. The sports bar there has what we consider "bar food". Only ate there in a pinch for time between shows.
