“Tony Roma's with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

This is a Tony Roma's restaurant (for better or worse) with a better than average atmosphere on the river. The food, service, and prices are exactly what one would expect at any Tony Roma's. The views and opportunity to eat outside next the Mighty Mississippi make it a bit better than typical.

“OK but probably won't eat here again”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

The waitress was very good however the food itself took forever and they weren't even busy. Food ok...nothing spectacular by any means and certainly didn't reflect the price adequately.

“Excellent food, but the service and room temperature weren't great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Stopped by for dinner with a few friends after a day at Diamond Jo.

When we got there, we stopped at the bar for a drink and decided to just stay there and eat in the bar area. Maybe we should have gone back out to the restaurant and asked for a table.

We waited probably 15 minutes before a server came by to ask us for our order. Now, that may be normal if a restaurant is BUSY, but I could have counted on my hands the number of people there at the time.

Once we ordered the food, it took another 15-20 minutes just to get the appetizer, all while we were sitting there starving!

They were also have problems with the air conditioning that day -- oops! Considering it was almost 100 degrees outside, that made for a bit of an unpleasant experience.

What was lost in the service and air temperature was made up for in the food. The chicken dish that I ordered basically melted in my mouth and came with a pile of wild rice and broccoli -- yum!

I would suggest that if this place was busy when you visit that you block off a few hours if the service was as 'good' as it was when I was there.

“Great ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We were at the Grand Harbor for a family vacation getaway and the whole family ate here. A bit pricey, but the food was fantastic!

“Roma's for ribs !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Tony Roma's in Dubuque is right on the Mississippi river so you get a wonderful view with very good food. When we frequent Roma's it's almost always for ribs !!
