“Ribs are great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

The ribs are absolutely wonderful. They are currently offering a "3 for 13" deal, which includes a salad or soup, main course and dessert for $13. One of the choices is a half-rack of ribs. Definitely do it!

I would rate it better but the service was only ok. We have eaten a number of meals there, on weekends and weekdays since we stay at the hotel often, but the service has never been fabulous. I wouldn't withhold a tip, but it could be better. Still worth going there for the ribs!

Great food. We've been there several times and never disappointed with the food or service. A]\\

“Great Ribs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Used to haunt the Tony Roma's in Wausau WI til it closed I was so happy to find this one in Dubuque(my daughter goes to college in Dubuque). Fantastic ribs both pork & beef and excellent sides and generous cocktails. Attached to Harbor House Resort & Indoor Waterpark

“Tony Roma's, nice for a special meal, but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We had a group of nine for dinner at Tony Roma's. It is conveniently located in the Grand Harbor Resort that we were staying at. They include gratuity for a group that size, which is pretty normal. It was my sister's birthday, so she got a free bottle of their BBQ sauce (it is really good!). We ordered burgers, pastas, ribs and steaks. It was all very good, but not exceptional. The portion sizes were a little smaller than what you are used to at say Olive garden, but I wasn't left starving. The restaurant was lively and had a good atmosphere. There is also a patio to dine on. Our waitress did a good job. It was nice for a special dinner, but not an every meal option.
