I went to Diamond Jo's and had a great time. The dealers were nice and fun. The bartenders could have taken some lessons in customer service though.

This is my favorite casino in the area. Nothing real special but it usually isn't too smokeyis clean, plenty of parking, good service and good clientele. I usually go a few times a year and will go back soon.

Found that Diamond Jo was not unlike most other casinos here in the Midwest...extremely tight slot machines. Table play was reasonable with $5 Blackjack possible...but really stingy on comps for the buffet. While we come to Dubuque twice a year...maybe next time we'll have to...More
