My wife and I dined at the WoodFire Grille at the Diamond Jo Casino on an overnight stay in Dubuque and found the food and service to to absolutely top notch! Crabcake appetizers to start and steaks for the main course.. Hard to tell which steak was better, wife had the top sirloin and I had the filet---both melted in your mouth. Would definitely recommend--pricey, but a must do if in the area.

I call it an experience because our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and wine pairings. The food was fantastic and the wine pairings that he suggested were spot on. Definitely on our list to return.

My husband and I love this restaurant! The ambiance is great with several glassed-in fireplaces thought the restaurant. It's a little bit pricey, but everything we have ever ordered has been fantastic!

They have by far the best lobster bisque we've ever had- I would say it's the one thing that is a MUST to order.

My husband always orders a steak and has always had it cooked perfectly. The bone-in ribeye is huge and extends a foot past your plate! The prime rib has also always been amazing. My favorite entree is the sea bass, always cooked phenomenally and always ridiculously delicious.

The members of the wait staff are some of the most professional in town.

The sides are priced a little high and not very exciting- Not even the BLT (bacon, lobster, truffle) mac 'n cheese.

We visited Woodfire on a Friday without prior reservations. We were warmly greeted and were able to secure a table.
Seemed like a slow night. We were seated and waited at least 20 minutes without a server in sight. A manager recognized we needed help. Without any fuss on our part, She offered us a free beverage. She said our server was a little late to work. Nice touch on the management. Overall the meal was fair. Service continued to be slow to non - existent. Why cant I have a small serving of rice or pasta with salmon. 3 pcs. Of asparagus for an accompient. Prices are high for Dubuque. I have no problem with this is our meal and service was memorable. It will be sometime before I return. Im not a complainer. The evening was mediocre at best.

The filet mignon was better than any I have had in Chicago or NYC! Also the roasted asparagus was absolutely delicious!! Don't let the fact that this restaurant is in the casino be a reason to keep you away!!
