Iowa has a number of casinos. Unfortunately for me, Riverside was the first one I had been to, and it set the standard too high. After staying there, the atmosphere and service at other casinos is a disappointment. The overall service at Riverside is outstanding. The casino is brightly lit, not dark and dreary. The food at the restaurants is amazing, particularly at Ruthie's. It's a treat to visit Riverside, even if you're, like me, not much of a gambler.
