We enjoyed an early Thanksgiving get together. The hostess was very accommodating as it was a chilly evening and we requested indoor seating when we arrived. The tables were appropriately spaced for social distancing. Our server was both knowledgeable about the menu and attentive. We ordered crispy oysters for the starter which was tender and tasty. A variety of entrees were selected including the Rockfish special and duck breast. Every one raved about their selections. Finally, we ended our meal with the apple tart a’ la mode which was amazing.

In the main dinning room a very beautiful flair with the old equipment parts of the old mill. A lovely amount of dishes to choice from with a nice variety. The personal was really very friendly and intent.

This was the second time we had dinner at the Tuscarora Mill restaurant and both times the service, the cuisine and our overall experience was excellent. The menu is filled with delicious items for appetizers and meals and their specials are always very good. We had the Venison Chops special last time and the prime fun this time along with the mushroom soup in addition to the scallop & steak dish and their meatloaf. We had an excellent server who made our dinner experience even better since we had a large group and asked 100 questions. We will be back as often as we can

Everything from food to service to ambiance was excellent. Hardest thing was finding how to get to the dining room. There was a private party on the first floor dining room with signs on the doors stating so. Finally found a door and an employee working the private party pointed that it was upstairs. Got a table kind of in an outer passage way so we were pretty much isolated from the other diners, which given the virus, may have been a good thing. Just felt like that we were seated in a hallway. The special of prime rib was $54 which seemed high to me. Rest of the menu seemed reasonable. Would recommend this restaurant to others.

We have been going to Tuskie's since it opened and never have been disappointed. We have had at least 20 anniversary dinners there and numerous birthday celebrations in front of the fireplace.
We are also happy when Ryan is our waiter. Not that other waitstaff aren't good.
Hopefully Tuskie's will be around for a long time. Cheers!

Outdoor dining was in a tent with plastic walls, and a blower for heat if needed. Tables were 15' apart. We eat here many times each year, including the fine dining section for special occasions. This time, pork ribeye was perfectly done, and Chilean Sea bass was fabulous - it was even fresh (not frozen) fish crusty on the outside and silky inside.

Fun place, interesting decor - great service and food. Woman hostess, unfriendly but the male host more than made up for her.
food was excellent - leave the sugar out of the Irish coffee unless you ask.
great place.

Wonderful meal and wonderful service. I only marked down the ambience because we were seated outside in a tent which was disappointing, especially as it was our anniversary. Still a wonderful meal and we were very well taken care of by our server and the rest of the staff. We will be back.

TERRIBLE experience! So disappointed as we have been there many times. Not sure we will go back. Tried to celebrate husband’s bday but after 2 hours and $300 later we had to throw in the towel and leave without the bday celebration. Waited 30 mins just for a drink, ask 2x for bread, when dinner finally arrived it was dried out from being under the warming lights. Server said (and I quote), “Well, if we ever see you again, hope you have a better experience.” What is even more shocking of his statement is that we did not make one negative or derogatory comment to him. Maybe it was the repeated asks for things that finally clued him in?

Everything about our dinner at Tuscarora Mill was perfect! There was no wait to be seated once we arrived. The waiter was attentive but didn't hover, and his recommendations were right on. The food was excellent. I had chicken with an Asian flare that was unique, yummy and healthy. The pumpkin ravioli melted in my mouth. I couldn't ask for a better experience!

Tuskie's is always great to have dinner and this past Sunday night was another great experience. The only slight downside is the noise since parts of the dining room are open.
