Just a typical casino, nothing spectacular. If you are a non-smoker you may not want to stop here, as the casino does allow smoking. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Being a non smoker, I'm more sensitive to smoke, so you'd think I'd just stay away from a casino, but I didn't! I had fun. They try to cover the smell with some sort of air deodorizer which is really strong, but I adjusted. Games were fun, tables were busy. No one asked if I wanted a drink....

Might be the worst casino in the midwest. No one wins there. Last Friday 4 of us went. At 4 in the afternoon on a Friday there was one person playing the craps table, why? Because no one wins at craps there. The place was also pretty much empty at the slot machines, why, because again no one wins there.... More

I have been to many casinos but a certain dealer stood out at this one! Her name is lisa and she really knows how to make gambling fun. The whole table was laughing kidding around and enjoying themselves because of her outgoing personality!! That's exactly why I go to a casino is for fun and entertainment and to walk out... More

Diamond Jo is only 1 1/2 hour drive from me and it's a nice change. Their buffet is to die for. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is superior. Everything is very clean. They have a big variety of slot machines.

Need to update the machines and loosen them up a bit. No one expects to get rich in a casino, but its nice not to have to drop a few hundred dollars in a hour playing quarter machines.

While on a visit to Dubuque my wife and I decided to visit the Diamond Jo Casino since it was a part of the Boyd properties and, as members of their reward program, we had never been disappointed before. This casino was an exception. Not only was the casino dated and unexciting, but the machines were similarly bland and boring.... More

Had a great afternoon here. As a casino patron, this one had the loosest slots I've seen in sometime. A couple of good eating spots. Clean and easy parking. The area is interesting and lots of walking areas. The area shows Dubuque at it's best.

Decided to pop in the casino to say, 'been there, done that'. Had lunch at deli which was OK. Sports Bar not open. Coming from Ohio the first thing that struck me was the stale cigarette smell. Asked where non smoking was and pointed towards small room in the corner. If I was a gambler, I would not have been... More
