We had several different appetizers and entree's among four adults. Everything, including the service, was great. Menu changes seasonally and always good.

My wife and I were visiting the area for a weekend of wine and antiques and stayed at a great B&B - Airwell. On the drive down I scanned Open Table and liked the look of Tuscarora Mill. Had never heard of it before. There were limited reservation times available so I expected it to be crowded when we arrived. It was pretty much empty - which is fine. Just surprising. Parking in an adjacent lot was convenient. We were promptly seated in a nice open cabana style room well spaced from the other few guests. Our waitress quickly greeted us and gave us the options for the night. My wife went for a local beer. I opted for wine. Bread was provided and replaced when we finished off the first serving. We both decided on the same entree - the Beef and Scallops combo. The wait was minimal. Very nice presentation and fair serving sizes. The tenderloin tips were amazing. Great smoky grilled flavor. The scallops were the best we've had. The sauces were a nice complement and not overpowering. Our waitress was attentive but not bothersome. Because we chose one of the more moderate selections, the final bill was comfortable - especially considering the overall cost of living in the area. If we return to Leesburg - we will definitely return!

Food, drinks and service were excellent. It had been much too long since I was there last, but I'll remember to go back more often now. Perfect for a "special" meal.

Lovely restaurant with a kind staff that works with each other to aid in the guest experience. Food was enjoyable and the menu with unique options. I would gladly make the drive again from the city for an occasion.

Took out-of-town guests, very old friends, to a restaurant we knew would have what we wanted. The ambiance that would allow us to settle in for an evening of drinks, good food, great service all without any rush. The menu is a bit of a classic, not terribly long but it accounts for every taste. We have never found fault with the wine list either; from the easily affordable to that special something for the right occasion and, the bartenders are cocktail experts. Our friends were delighted.

My friend’s Birthday was recognized with a personal menu, a candle on dessert, a wine glass filled with candy.plus all the time that was needed to open the gifts!
Always a wonderful restaurant to visit. Only wish it was nearer where I live but taking the trip is worth the drive!

Had a Special date and requested a table not out in main dining area but when we got there we were seated in main area surrounded by a main traffic area. We saw a more private table open up and requested to be moved. Without hesitation our request was granted. We understand that this may be unusual but we appreciated the professionalism and accommodations. Food was great as usual.

We have dined at Tuscarora Mill many times and have never been disappointed. This visit was not representative of our past experiences. Perhaps it was a bad day in the kitchen or poor choices on our part.

This is the second time we’ve been to Tuscarora’s for Sunday brunch and it was very good; however it turns out that the menu doesn’t change, which was disappointing. With that said it was very good. We were tucked back in a strange little nook with four other tables which made moving back and forth to the buffet a bit of a challenge, and also made it very load for conversation. We come here often for other meals and the food is always good and varied due to the daily specials. But the ambiance of the front seating area abruptly changes in the much larger dining room - totally lacking in any ambience at all.

Our server was awesome....very accommodating, helpful and friendly. Half the table LOVED their food, others found it less so. It was really busy and staff was moving furniture which was really distracting. Overall, I'd give it another try on day that wasn't a "special" day.

Was very excited to try this place. I think once was enough after the experience of almost no existent service (20 minutes before we were greeted, we also had reservation), bland food, and the drunk couple arguing loudly with their son behind us. Cute restaurant but don't understand the hype.

The food was superb and delicious, I enjoyed the specials recommended by our server Megan. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable and passionate; which resulted in us having a great experience. The only thing we did not enjoy was sitting in the sun room towards the back, it lacked energy and poor lighting. Definitely requesting main dining room and Megan, for the next time we dine there. Thank you for a lovely meal!

We had a wonderful Valentine's lunch. The restaurant was very crowded, as it is well known to be one of the top restaurants in the area. Reservations are strongly recommended. We were seated on time and the staff was knowledgable and pleasant. The food is always good and reasonably priced for this level of establishment.

Tuskie’s never disappoints. They went out of their way to be sure our birthday celebration was perfect, especially on a very busy Valentine’s Day! Our server was wonderful.
