    We were a group of five; for most, it was their first visit. We were seated comfortably at a round table, which I really appreciate for larger groups like ours, since it makes it easier to involve everyone in the conversation. The food was very good--we particularly enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, the shrimp and grits and the pasta with chicken. My duck could have been more tender and more flavorful, but the bed of butternut squash dumplings (more like gnocchi) made up for it. Will definitely go back.

    We're pretty much regulars as this is my wife's favorite restaurant, so naturally it was perfect for her birthday. The food and service were excellent as always and they have a very good wine and beer selection. We also frequent their monthly "Beer Dinners" where we get to see Chef Patrick's creativity. Highly recommend to anyone.

    First, Had a 730p reservation on a Thursday night. Got there and had to wait an additional 20 minutes to get a table. The waitress was so horrible that I asked the girl that bused the tables to be my waitress. At least she was friendly and had a personality. It's pretty bad when you have to get up and ask for service at a so called "fine dining" restaurant. At a true fine dining restaurant, if you so much as blink wrong the wait staff is over at your table asking if there is anything they can do. If you ever go into a restaurant and the first thing you see is all the Zagot awards hanging everywhere trying to convince you that it's a nice restaurant that is pretty much a clue that that you should immediately walk out!!!

    We have been hearing about this restaurant for 13 years. We finally went two nights ago for our wedding anniversary when we usually drive into DC. The food was amazing (two serious foodies here) but the service was definitely lacking. Half the tables had linens, half did not. Our table did not - we felt like second class citizens. The server forget to provide the wine list, that we had already ordered, and provided a bill that was 80 dollars over what we had actually ordered. Would I give Tuscarora Mills another chance? Yes, because the food was wonderful. But if the next visit (even if it is a drink at the bar) does not have perfect service that will be the last visit we ever make.

    Went to Tuskies with wife for our anniversary. Based on reviews was expecting more. Started with "small plates" of crispy oysters and chicken & shrimp spring rolls. Oysters were over battered and spring rolls, which came with sweet chili sauce had no sweetness nor any fire with the chili. Our entrees were veal scaloppini and "New Orleans" trout with crab. No seasoning on the veal. I have been to New Orleans many times. The seasoning on the trout did not make me think of NOLA. We shared a peach cobbler which came out lukewarm. Spacing between all the dishes was poor. Waitress seemed more interested in conversing with a couple getting married in North Carolina than waiting on us. Nice place but not worth the trek out to Leesburg.

    We were traveling from Mercersburg, Pennsylvania to Dulles Airport and wanted to have a nice relaxing dinner before flying home to Chicago. Tuscarora Mill was a great choice. I looked on Open Table first for Leesburg restaurants, because I have found from experience if a restaurant is on Open Table you won't be disappointed. I read their reviews, and then went to Trip Advisor (another good source for restaurant info) to read their reviews. Both sites highly recommended Tuscarora Mill. The salads and main courses were excellent. My husband had the a beet/goat cheese salad and the veal scaloppini, I ordered the caesar salad and the smoked chicken penne pasta, which was especially good. The only disappointment was the desserts.

  • 30th anniversary dinner
    LoudounDiner
    Dined on 8/5/2014
    Five of us enjoyed a small celebration at Tuskie's. I mentioned on the reservation that the dinner was in honor of our 30th wedding anniversary. The chef sent out a taster of some kind of chicken ginger roll to our table, which my family said was delicious. My mother, a well-traveled foodie, said everything was excellent and enjoyed the meal very much. My adult daughters enjoyed the option of ordering smaller portions of their plates. The service was superb: timely, respectful of the conversation, and every detail remembered, such as bringing extra cutlery.

    We ordered soup and salad for appetizers. No spoon was brought to us for the soup and we had to wait for about 5 minutes before we got one. Then once our entrees arrived, they brought me the completely wrong entree. It seems the waitress had put the entree in the system wrong resulting in the error. As a result, my correct food did not come out until about 15 minutes after my husbands entree. At this point he was completely done eating. Barely any apology was given for this error nor was a discount offered for the mistake. We will not be going back. The food was good but not exceptional and this combined with the service doesn't make it worth the cost.

    Tuskies has adopted a new format but has kept up the quality of its dishes. With their new small plate, medium plate, entree approach you can explore multiple cuisines, ingredients and quantities. The wine list is still solid and food preparation remains a solid strength. Long term patrons will find the new twist a refreshing change.

    I celebrated my birthday with my adult children and we all had a great time and a great meal. I won't spoil the surprise in case you decide to do this, but after booking on Open Table, my son altered the booking to include the fact that it was my birthday. Sometimes you regret that, but not this time. From the cocktails to the dessert, one of the best meals we've had together.

    I brought my wife to Tuscorara Mill as a surprise evening out to a place she had never been. We were both impressed with the entire experience, the food was incredible, the portions were just right, the service fantastic. I had the pork ribeye and it was cooked as requested (medium), the flavor was savory. My wife ordered the rainbow trout and it disappeared from her plate quickly. We both decided this was a do-over and would be a nice place to bring out of town guests for a beautiful evening on the town.

    Tuscarora Mill is situated in Leesburg VA amongst several lively eating spots. Their food is extremely well prepared, although the appetizers are small in size.... Our meal was excellent from start to finish. We were seated promptly and served efficiently...although we had to ask for several items.... and thus.. no excellent for service. All in all... a very good meal.

    I took my parents here for brunch to celebrate my father's birthday. I had let them know it was a birthday celebration when I made the reservation, and they printed special menus for us that said Happy Birthday Dad on the top. This was an unexpected and lovely surprise. We all got the breakfast buffet, which was delicious! There was a wonderful assortment of options including french toast, breakfast meats, grilled vegtables, salmon, fruit, omlettes, and much more. I highly recommend the french toast. My parents raved about the brunch for days. I will definitelybe going back soon.
