    Had another wonderful dining experience at Tuskies! Restaurant is cozy and staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. We ordered a combination of small plates and entrees which were all delicious and served perfectly. Many thanks to Chef Patrick and Tuskie staff who continue to keep restaurant and menu fresh and appealing.

    It's always a pleasure to dine at the Mill. we love the neighbourhood gem! We noticed the a la carte menu changes but forgot to ask the waiter - and the waiter neglected to mention them as well, so we ordered a few sides after our meal was served. An improvement could be made here. Bottom Line - always a good meal and a great experience! Thank you! Janell

    The salad was good, but we always compare to a similar salad that we have at the Blue Ridge Grill, and BRG wins out again. My husband and I did have dinner there a few days before, and the pumpkin ravioli and beigne (sp??) dessert were very good.

    On a rainy night, parking is a real problem at Tuscarora Mills in their small, over-crowded lot. Upon entry to the restaurant, you are not greeted until you walk through the noisy bar area and into the adjoining dining room. Unfortunately, the noise of the bar carries into the joining dining room and distracts from the dining experience. The wine list is very limited and does not include Reislings, Chianti, and many other wines often enjoyed at dinner. The menu includes a good selection of appetizers and salads. My corn chowder was hot, full of creamy broth and vegetables, and delicious. There was a short but adequate number of entrees including two game entrees. My pork ribeye had great potential but was quite over salted. The highlight of the meal was desert - a trio of beignets filled with cheesecake and covered with raspberry sauce. It was a great finale. Service was very good. Our waiter was knowledgeable of menu items, pleasant, helpful, and very attentive to our dining experience.

    Have now been back to Tuskies several times and they are a consistent winner. Waitstaff are energetic, knowledgeable of the meals including specials and make solid recommendations. They are several seating options and all or very comfortable. Specially impressed with the Scotch Whiskeys and drink specials. Trout was tremendous.

    We had a great meal here. Service was outstanding, food was very interesting. We had the summer squash fondue which was a little bit of a weird combo but it turned out to be good. The mussels were awesome, highly recommended. I ordered the ribeye special. It was smoked then grilled. Super good combo and you could taste the smoky flavor. It was just a bit dry though. I would order it rare it Med-rare next time. Bread pudding with ice cream for dessert, one of my all time favorites. It was crowded so there was a little noise but that's becauelse everyone was having a great time. Overall - a solid 4 star experience.

    A friend who was a first-timer at the Mill joined my wife and me for Wednesday night dinner, and all of us decided it was well worth the 45 minute trip from Winchester. The dining room was quiet and attractive, and a fantastic waitress provided efficient but unobtrusive service, including recommending a great moderately-priced wine. Corn chowder and chicken and shrimp spring rolls were tasty appetizers, while shrimp and grits, pork ribeye, and smoked chicken penne entrees were shared and enjoyed. Caramel bread pudding and creme brulee topped off a perfect dining experience.

    We ate in the bright, sunny back portion of the restaurant. Unfortunately, as it filled with patrons, it got quite loud. If you are looking for a more quite experience, I would recommend eating in the old section of the facility. The food was great, as always, as well as the service. I would highly recommend it.

    We have lately been spending way too much money at highly rated foodie restaurants with prix fixe menus that are big into presentation. Presentation is always superb but the dishes don't always please everyone's taste at the table. So, we decided to spend a birthday at Tuskies because it is always consistent and you can choose what you want to eat to match your mood and most of the time the food is very good and often excellent. Service is usually very good too. We may end up spending more events at Tuskies than the foo foo restaurants from now on.

    I have toughened up my ratings. What some would call Outstanding, I mark as Very Good. I don't want "grade creep" to be a factor in ratings. That said, Tuscarora Mill, Tuskies to repeat diners, is our first choice for a special occasion dining spot. We have been going there for years, and the food and service have never faltered. The menu is always very creative. We're still trying to find the best quiet spot. Being in a reconstructed mill, the ceiling is very high. We have been in what I call the add on dining room, and it was nice.

    Tuskies continues to be one of our favorite restaurants. Tried some of the new offerings on the menu and were not disappointed. The surf and turf dish of grilled shrimp and tenderloins on a skewer are wonderful. Even saved room for one of the small finish desserts -- a blueberry tart -- which was just the right finish to a delightful meal. Thanks to Chef Patrick for a wonderful experience!

    The Mill remains one of the better options for dining in Leesburg. It seems that the menu has changed to be a bit more upscale (and expensive) but the quality is good. Dinner was excellent with both the trout and duck breast having been well prepared.

    Our party of three had a very solid lunchtime experience here recently. All dishes were well prepared and delicious. The only criticism, albeit very minor, was the kitchen's decision to top our brussels sprouts side order with bleu cheese. While it didn't make the dish objectionable at all, it did make it a little over the top since the brussels sprouts were already tossed with lots of bacon.

    The restaurant was pleasant and the food was okay but I thought very expensive for what we received. It was a little on the noisy side and the server seemed to be very rushed and a little absent minded. Perhaps they were short handed but I didn't feel he was particularly interested in us. I ordered a "small wedge salad" and it barely fit on the plate. Good but a nuisance to eat. For a main course I had the trout which was good but not exceptional, I also found it laden with butter which took away from the flavor of the food and sat heavily in the stomach. While the salads came out in a very reasonable time, we waited quite awhile for the main course to arrive. I will say my wife enjoyed it more than me.

    I found the atmosphere perfect for a Business lunch, and the service very attentive. The restaurant was quite noisy with tables fairly close together. This may be fun in another situation, but trying to concentrate on business communications was not easy. I had been told that the food at this restaurant was amazing. However, both my colleague and I felt that the food was "average". Maybe I would have felt differently if I had not had such a high expectation.

    We have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years for our annual Christmas lunch, after we cut our Christmas Tree at a tree farm outside Leesburg. It has always been excellent. We have never made a reservation, so when we made our reservation for our 28th anniversary they didn't know we were yearly regulars. They made our anniversary very special. There were personalized menus, candles in our dessert, and complimentary glasses filled with candies and our personalized menus. We live in Bethesda so we aren't in Leesburg very often but Tuscarora Mill has won my business every time we are there.

    After all of the glowing reviews off Yelp, I decided to celebrate my husbands birthday here. Unfortunately the prices were higher than the food quality (or portions), the drink list was three times as long as the food (we don't drink) and we were seated next to a very loud drinking party that kept the entire restaurant on edge. Not the romantic dinner we had hoped for. Not the quality we hoped for. Not the selection we hoped for. Not the experience. But - it is still a 3-star place and worth a single visit. Clyde's still reigns for my family.

    Great selection of lunch brunch options. The Texas BBQ sandwich of pulled pork and sausage was unique and flavorful. The steamed mussels in white wine,capers, olives and tomatoes were delicious. My favorite was the eggs Benedict Italian style. A great twist on a classic. A great brunch after a Virginia wire tasting in nearby towns.

    Your staff did a great job of making us feel special. The only negative (and why there are four stars) is the restaurant host and manager (guessing here, there were two) seemed unfriendly -- OK this is too harsh maybe 'uninterested' works better. The servers more than made up for this however. They were attentive but not intrusive. Well and professionally done. The food was, as usual, delicious. We are long time customers and, in spite of one negative observation, we will return and recommend.
