We walked out with $$ in our pockets so we're happy. Diamond Joe is a newer & pretty clean casino. You don't smell the smoke like you do in other casinos, but the air deodorant they pipe throughout the casino is a little overwhelming and gave me a headache! It's really dark in this place also. We will return when... More

I didn't care for this casino. Looks every bit like a vegas casino but has horrible 6/5 and 7/5 video poker machines that are very tight. I blew through 50 bucks on VP faster than any of my 300 VP sessions in Vegas. It's only fun if you have a chance.

The Diamond Jo has poker themes from penny, nickel, quarter, fifty cent, $1, $2 and $5. Our poker payback ranges from 95% up to 99%. Although it is relative to what denomination you are playing. In the Strictly Slots magazine “Best of 2014” article Diamond Jo Dubuque was voted the best video poker in the state of Iowa. Our poker... More

Visited the casino on a Sunday night. Not crowded at all. Allowed to enjoy a free slot tournament with a players card. Ate at the casino buffet for Sunday dinner and Monday brunch. The food was tasty and plentiful. The wait staff were very pleasant. Will definitely visit again.

Diamond Joe's hosted the first night of the Food and Wine Festival. The entertainment was very good. Not happy about the smokers but the air quality was not bad.

Nothing distinguished the casino from others of it's kind. The food in the buffet was unappealing and quality under par.

We had an amazing experience working with the staff at Diamond Jo. Everyone went above and beyond helping us plan our events and their flexibility and professionalism is top notch. Such a... More

Casino with the usual machines. Just what you would expect. What was a very pleasant discovery was the quality of the food in a very reasonably priced buffet! We were there for Italian night -- $7 per person. Entrees we selected were very good. Would most definitely try the buffet again!

My boyfriend and I have a good time when we go to Diamond Joe's. They have a wide variety of machines, staff goes around quite regularly to check for anyone needing drinks (which is nice since they only seem to have 2 waitresses working at a time). The inside is not terribly smokey as other reviewers have complained about, I'm... More
