One of the best restaurants in the region. I wish they could have more vegetarian options but the food is great.

I had not been there in over a decade, and was pleasantly surprised by the food! It was better than I remember (not that it wasn't good before). Service was good, and the bartender poured some tasty house cocktails. I recommend the Vieux Carre. I will definitely be making this a regular dinner destination.

Energy -filled without being overly loud; great service -our waiter was really helpful in helping us choose our beer flights and wine. A really unique atmosphere and fantastic menu - so many really different things to choose from. The beef and scallops perfectly done - vegetables on both plates crisp and so well seasoned. The one big flaw - the fish of the day -flounder- was dry and way overcooked - could have done with a nice herb pans sauce and the accompanying polanta was bland and gooey. Deserts were yummy.

We thoroughly enjoyed our family dinner at Tuscarora. Everyone loved their entrees and the service was great. In particular, the flank steak and crabcakes were especially good. They also make great salads. We were a group of 9 and they gave us a nice roomy table. Tuscarora is a very charming restauarant.

"Tuskie's" has been a favorite go-to in our family for over 20 years. Relatively new Chef Thomas Harvey, who replaced 25-plus-year standout chef Patrick Dinh just under 2 years ago, has maintained the high quality of the food and the great menu (keeping many of the favorites) and continuing to introduce new seasonal items. We had a great day-after-Thanksgiving lunch/brunch. The Corn Chowder and Butternut Squash Soup appetizers were delicious. Friends enjoyed the Eggs Benedict, a special of the day large Grilled Shrimp Salad, and the famous and delicious Shrimp & Grits. I had a special of the day Flounder on a bed of Polenta with Chanterelle Mushrooms and Asparagus which was good, but the fish was a bit dry. Desserts (we split 2 items among the 4 of us) are made fresh on site and were top notch. Service was also first rate - all this from a kitchen and wait staff that I'm sure was pretty tired after the Thanksgiving marathon the day before. But there was no sign of it in either the food or the service. It's why we continue to love and count on Tuscarora Mill and will keep returning.

Was not prepared for the excellent service, surprise menu with our Anniversary printed on them, and tremendous food. This establishment sets a high bar. Surprised not more restaurants follow suit. They are simply one of the best in Loudoun.

From the moment we arrived at Tuscarora Mill, staff were warm, welcoming and friendly. The historical buildings are charming, and our seating in the sunroom afforded nice views of the courtyard below. All three in our party found it hard to choose from the many tempting menu options, so we really appreciated our delightful server sharing an excellent knowledge of the menu, as well as details about the variety of specialty ales available. Our food was beautifully prepared and delicious—We were amazed at the skill of the chef in achieving a perfect sear on the salmon, the delicately crisp texture on fried green tomatoes, and the generous crab cakes emphasizing delicious lump crabmeat. This was a birthday celebration to remember always, and every aspect of our meal brought joy on this wonderful family occasion. Thank you so much to the staff for creating such a heartwarming experience!

It was our 1st visit. Celebrating 59th anniversary. Had menus with our name and acknowledgment of our anniversary. All of the staff made us feel special and very welcomed. Service & food were excellent. On leaving we were given a wine glass filled with candy. Will definitely be returning.

Good for lunch, but the dinners leave something to be desired. Interesting wine list though. Service is a bit spotty, the list of specials drones on like War and Peace being read.

Good dinner - six people for a birthday dinner. Our server was outstanding - understood our need for separate checks and splitting the b-day persons bill between us. Very attentive and nice. However, the noise in that restaurant in a busy Saturday night is terrible. Very annoying. Food was good but I would never go on a weekend night again. They have packed each part of the restaurant with tables and every time someone tries to squeeze by they knock a coat or a purse to the floor. The servers are always excusing themselves to move between the tables and conversation is difficult.

Touted as the best restaurant in downtown Leesburg, it lived up to its billing. It was a Saturday evening and very crowded and loud, but the service (Megan) was very correct and well timed - only one quibble concerning salads that came with dressing, not on the side as we had requested. A very interesting, diverse menu including a game dish of the day which you don't often see. I could imagine going back to this restaurant.

Delicious, seasonal specials served in an ambiance of comfortable elegance. We had a drink at the bar afterwards and felt relaxed and pampered. We came for a special occasion, our anniversary, and will definitely celebrate with the Tuscarora Mill again.

We had a wonderful experience at Tuscarora Mill. We were running late because of traffic. I called ahead to let the hostess know we would be about 10 minutes late for our reservation; they were very kind about it. We actually arrived about 20 minutes late and there was no problem at all. Our servers were on top of everything, there was never an empty glass. Our party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Everything was delicious and arrived quickly....quicker than I expected. We finished with delicious desserts as well. It was probably one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Planning on making it a regular place to visit when I'm in the area.

I chose Tuscarora as a spot for a reunion with friends I hadn’t seen for too long.

We started at the bar while our foursome gathered. It was cozy and cheery on a cool, rainy night. Quite a few people were gathered in the bar area but the facility was comfortable despite the small crowd. The drinks were good and the bartender was helpful. Our appetizers arrived quickly and were hot from the kitchen, including reorders of a couple of our items. The bacon wrapped shrimp and fried oysters were amazing.

At our request, they gave us a table in the back where we could laugh and have fun without bothering anyone. Our waiter “Drey” was excellent; informed, entertaining and spot on with our orders. A couple of us wanted to stay later which the restaurant accommodated without skipping a beat.

We had a great, carefree evening; perfect for our reunion. Thanks Tuscarora!
