We stayed at Wild Rose Casino Resort while attending a family wedding. We found the facilities clean and adequate but nothing outstanding for a casino. Dinner at Dunigan's Irish Pub was very good and priced well. Salad bar was very sparse with only a bowl of greens and only a few toppings. Service was a little slow. Casino was small...

The concert was great! These people know how to bring back the best of Abba! The downside was that even though we had purchased our tickets far in advance, to have tickets toward the front, management allowed a group of women from the back 'dance' in front of the stage through the WHOLE concert! All we saw most of the...

My mom & I made the 3.5-hour trek from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Emmetsburg specifically for the Mickey Gilley/Johnny Lee Concert on Aug. 20 & we were NOT disappointed. The hotel was clean & comfortable & the staff was friendly. We're not regular gamblers, but we had fun in the casino (even though we lost money). As for the concert,...

Stoped by to get off the road and do a little gaming. The staff at the Players Club was friendly and so with the staff walking throughout the casino. The casino itself is small but definitely would stop again.

Decent enough casino... Some ups & downs; it didn't take all money at once... I got to play for a while. I saw several people leave with money, so slots must have paid them ok. LOTS of penny slots. Friendly staff. I would go again if I'm in the area.

Having never before stayed here I used this place to stop on my first of three days of driving/hiking in Iowa to places I have never been to or haven't seen for a longtime. Upon entering the grounds, you are directed to either the valet parking area or self service parking. I chose the latter and walked in. I made...

When this place opened some years ago- the food was great and so were the rooms. Not so much anymore. We had a family reunion and a few of us (12) decided to try Dunigan's Irish Pub. We were all couples and one 2 month old baby. Everyone ordered various items none of which anyone liked at all. For example,...

Great entertainment. Fast entry into the concert, no lines. We did not stay at the Wild Rose Casino; completely booked. However, we are going to the Mickey Gilley concert Aug. 20, 2016. I am sure it will be as fun as the last one. We are going to camp at the campground at the Wild Rose Casino.
