Mississippi Moon Bar entertainment is GREAT!

Went for the Dueling Pianos... they were awesome. Very enjoyable evening! Bar service was great. It is clean, despite smoking allowed in areas of casino. Will go back again!

Food both simple and complex. Bowling, comedy, music, and of course gambling. the cigarettes are troubling. If you stay out of the casino you don't have to deal with them.

Even though smoking is allowed and we are non-smokers this time it seemed like maybe they had changed how the air is circulated better. We didn't feel like our clothes reeked of smoke like it used to after leaving the casino. Unless of course there were less smokers but will give the casino credit instead.

We aren't gamblers so didn't visit for that, but we saw a live show in their wonderful Mississippi Moon venue. Sound was fantastic and being small and intimate, we really became sucked into the excitement on stage. With a huge bar in the center and small set ups sprinkled around, getting a drink was super easy.

In the area, thought we would check out the casino. Nice place, was a busy place. Played some blackjack, with shoe, six deck I believe. I prefer to hold my cards, and only two decks, didn't see anything like that. Lots of slot machines. Not many video poker machines. Lots of smokers, but seemed to be vented well. If in... More

Diamond Jo Casino was right across the street from our hotel. Grand Harbor Resort and Waterpark. I was hoping to come out of there a big winner, but no such luck. Had a great time anyway.

Went up to Dubuque for Iowa Games. Our hotel pool was under renovation and they recommended this for our families. Shuttle picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. Lanes are nice and inexpensive. Wish the state would ban smoking in casino because smoke still can be smelt from lanes.
