  • What is all the fuss about?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 10/22/2014
    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.

    While I usually go here for dinner 4 or 5 times per year, this time was for a business lunch. As always the food and service were very good. I really like it here and over at Magnolias in Purcellville. Very well run restaurants with quality people working at each.

    We made Tuskie's our last stop for the evening, and even after a night of food and wine, the pumpkin ravioli made the entire visit worth it. The wine list is excellent and we settled on a 2012 Gigondas which was excellent. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable. Would definitely visit again.

    CountryClubTexan
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    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.

    Have always loved this restaurant, but our last visit was a big disappointment. 3 out of 4 meals were overcooked and either bland or over salted. Recommended wine was awful! Very poor response from our server, finally complained to the manager who gave us two complimentary glasses of wine. But with so many good restaurants around, don't think I would rush back.

    Very busy but food was delicious! Where did that bacon come from! The best! Went for Brunch. The drink choices were spectacular......hard to decide. The Bloody Marys were very good. Impressed with the Service. It was difficult to maneuver around the food service area. It was in the center of everything but it was difficult to access the food, walk through the area, and get back to the table.

    We stopped at Tuscarora Mill on the way back from the B&B where we were married four years ago, and my wife and I have made it a point to return each year. They have great, varied and enticing specials each time, but quite a few timeless standbys that never disappoint, too. The host, wait- and bus-people are very engaging and seem genuinely happy to see us, adding to the positive food experience we've come to rely on. Without a negative comment to add, I can say anyone will enjoy the dining there.

    Took a friend there for a birthday lunch and had a delightful time. The food is delicious -- clever pairings and flavorful. Well presented. Ample portions without being overwhelming (and not skimpy). The restaurant is a bit upscale, but worth it. It was a really nice touch that the menu for my friend had his name on it in recognition of his birthday -- and they gave it to him rolled like a scroll when we left. Cute touch.

    For the number one rated dining establishment in trip advisor I expected more. Ordered the filet of beef, it was a little charred but they gave me the end piece what they call the tail. It was suppose to be 8oz. Guarantee it was not. It was occumpanied by a side of one grape tomatoe. Will not go back.

    We celebrated our 18th anniversary at Tuscarora Mill (Tuskies) and the meal was incredible, as always. We've been going to Tuskies for 15 or more years and it is our go-to special occasion restaurant and brunch spot. If anything, it just gets better. Menu options are varied, creatively prepared and delicious. The setting is charming -- in an old mill in downtown Leesburg -- which creates an intimate setting, though some parts of the restaurant are more private than others. For those outside Loudoun County it's worth the trip!

    I requested a secluded table for our anniversary dinner. We were seated in an alcove with 2 other tables, both occupied. Soon the other parties left. Nice, until a family with 2 small boys were seated next to us. Boys that age use their outside voices, and the parents spent the majority of their time "parenting" them and trying to get them to eat. So much for secluded. I spoke with the manager, and expressed our disappointment at the collapse of our romantic dinner. He apologized. That was it. We decided the family must've been seated there to get them out of the main dining room. Service was ok; food was ok. Much smaller portions than last time. We won't be returning for a special occasion dinner.

It is also an good choice for romantic evenings and special occasions, particularly in the mill room.

    I had requested in our OpenTable reservation an intimate spot for our dinner and we were lead to the perfect seating around a fairly quiet corner with windows. I also noted that it was our Anniversary and the restaurant provided us with customized menus for our occasion (and we were given these menus with a selection of mints in wine glasses to take home!). As we anticipated, our food was delicious! I enjoyed the pork "rib eye" with collard greens and stone grits and my husband enjoyed the venison special (I'm sorry.. I don't recall his sides because I was too busy eating mine!). We are so grateful to live fairly close to Tuscarora so that we may dine here more often than other fine dining establishments!
