Diamond Jo Casino is an adult's entertainment Mecca. From the numerous activities - Cherry Lane Bowling Lanes to Mississippi Moon Bar concert hall to Mojo's sports bar with billiards, darts and games to whole floor of gamery (tables to dice)- there is always something going. We were treated like royalty from the cheerful "welcome" at the door, to customer help on the floor and numerous locations. Over the past weeks we have enjoyed great comedy and concert (Bret Michaels), fine dining in Woodfire Grill, casual dining watching sports and local billiard offianado's, and pulled a few "ca-ching's" as my wife calls the slots. For us, Diamond Jo Casino is the best fun on the Mississippi.

the slots are good to play. Didnt really like the buffet, it was your typical buffet. The nightclub is good to go to. Bowling is great for the kids. I didn't really like the bowling because it was so loud in the casino. The Woodfire Grill has fantastic food, but very pricey. Stick with the burger and fries

For a good time and a good gambling experience this casino rates well above average. Slots and table games fair and staff very friendly. Buffet is good and has plenty of choice. Hotel next to casino is a little walk but parking is ok. Has a bowling alley but have never left casino. Best casino in Dubuque.

Diamond Jo's is a great place for entertainment, the buffet is always busy. If you like your typical casino buffet and are interested in eating in quantity, it's worth the trip. Select is pretty tired, the seafood is your typical frozen not fresh. The salad bar is boring.

I am in Dubuque twice/year: easter and Christmas. This led me to diamond Jo. Looks above average from the outside..... until you walk in. Players (most) have no idea the fundamentals of blackjack. And no $1 video poker! Also very smokey inside! So if you enjoy players jumping in at bj tables w out asking, players staying on 14 against the dealers 9, and Newport smoke being blown in your face this is ur place. ( for the record I won about $ 1300 so this review wasn't written by a sore loser)

Thank you for your comments regarding the blackjack tables and the smoking in the casino. Since the health and comfort to our guests is a concern we have a state of the art air handling system that continually brings 100% fresh air into the casino gaming floor. At the same time we are exhausting 100% of the existing air. This system changes the air in the casino every 30 minutes. This system allows us to provide the cleanest air possible to our guests. We also offer a non-smoking section of slot machines located inside the Mississippi Moon Bar.
