It has been a while since we have been to Tuscarora Mill due to the pandemic. I am happy to report that this restaurant has not only survived, but has maintained its quality and service. The Sunday buffet is back. The variety of choices was very nice and everything we tried was nicely prepared. The asparagus was perfectly done, French toast and sausage gravy/biscuits we delicious. My husband tried the mussels, salmon, steak, mushrooms, shrimp and grits - all good. The fresh prepared omlet was fluffy and not overwhelming so there was options to try different items. My friend raved about the bread pudding and I liked the little chocolate chip cookie I nabbed as I left. We also had Bloody Mary's and Mimosas. Not one issue or complaint. Its is a bit of a splurge unless you come with a big appetite at $34.95. Love the atmosphere and will definitely come back. Oh and Tony was great as our server!

I think that waitress was busy because we didn’t get much attention. We asked if there was a regular menu she seemed annoyed that we didn’t want to just go eat the buffet. we had to flag her down to order drinks and other basic things, food was good but I don’t think we’d come back. Too many options these days to put up with mediocre service.

My husband and I had a fabulous lunch. Our reservation request for an outside table was honored. We appreciated receiving great recommendations from our server. We started with spring rolls, brimming with chicken and vegetables and not oily. The pear and shrimp salad was fresh, beautifully presented and quite filling. The special was Rockfish with squash risotto and grilled asparagus - really delicious.
Our only complaint was the presence of wasps and gnats - maybe expected outside but we wondered if a trash container near the serving station contributed to the problem. Maybe move it away from the seating area?

We went to Tuscarora to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. Tuscarora had printed out specialized menus for us, wishing us a happy anniversary across the top. It was such a sweet gesture!! The food was phenomenal and our service was excellent! Will be going back again!

I always have a good meal at Tuscarora Mills..whether it is lunch, brunch or dinner. It is the go to place when my mom and I meet up. Has been great during Covid with the outside tent . I have my favorites (fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits) but also look forward to the specials, especially the fish specials. Always delicious! They also have good vegetarian options if your group has dietary diversity!

AMAZING dining experience. Our server was on point, food delivered quickly and very tasty. Only disappointment was the fried shrimp rolls but everything else was perfect.

My ribeye was cooked to perfection and tasted like butter. Pork belly tacos were decadent.

I would remind the bartender that an old fashioned is bourbon, muddled cherries, bitters and simple syrup. Anything to fill the glass just takes away from the drink.

We will eat here again.

Tuskies is the best place for dinner in Leesburg. We eat there about 4-5 times a year. It is great because it is about 45 minutes from where we live.

The food is always excellent and the staff are amazing. Our server, Angie, was excellent!!! That is why we left her a large tip.

We have never been disappointed - they are fantastic.

Tuscarora Mill is as dependable as ever. I always count on Tusky to come through for a special occasion meal w/ my wife and or friends and family. The service, from the host who sat us, to our server, who was a true professional and outstanding at his job, to the lady who refilled our drinks before they ever got close to being empty, was great. As always.
The food: I had the grilled beef and scallops and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. I do think the whipped potatoes are a bit of an afterthought as they do not have much taste, but the scallops and beef were the star of the meal and both were excellent. The veggies were also delicious. My wife had the filet mignon and her food was also great- the brussel sprouts cooked with bacon were so tasty, the scalloped potatoes were way better than the whipped ones and they looked like an art-piece! The filet, even though my wife likes it cooked well done (sacrilege, I know) and she did ask for it to be cooked a little more after it arrived because it was very red, melted in your mouth. I grabbed a piece of hers before she sent it back and it was delicious.
We started off with the pastry puff/brie cheese appetizer and that was really, really, good and fun to eat. Warm brie cheese w/ a little sweetness in the pastry, it came with bread, grapes, and roasted garlic- awesome. Finally, we capped off the evening with dessert and my wife had the cheesecake beignets and they are always great. I'm a chocolate and peanut butter lover so the mousse cake was right in my wheelhouse and, even though I was full, I devoured it.
Thank you, Tuscarora Mill, for another outstanding meal with outstanding service.

Very good Sunday Brunch. Lots of selection including shrimp and grits, prime rib,salmon, fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, French toast, bacon, omelette station and more. Delicious dessert station with bread pudding, cannolis, fresh fruit, chocolate desserts and several pastries. As always Tuscarora mill does an outstanding job. The food is delicious and presentation is perfect. If you are looking for scrambled eggs, sausage and pancakes this is not that kind of brunch. We will be back soon.

We met friends for dinner and sat outside. Our server was GREAT! Knowledgeable about the menu, the specials, and able to adjust the drinks for our individual preferences.

Food was tasty and timed perfectly to allow us to enjoy the evening seamlessly.

The band across the street was just right for live entertainment without having to talk super loud.

Another winning experience with friends. Invited two friends for lunch and they LOVED their food and said they would love to come back. From the fresh bread to entrée, to dessert - everything was a hit. Today we had the grilled lemongrass chicken skewer salad, square plate meal, and the summer risotto with scallops. Really... everything is delicious!

This is our long standing favorite restaurant in Leesburg. We like almost everything on the menu. The service is always very professional. They have a great selection of cocktails, beer and wine. Some menu items change seasonally and some of the all time favorites remain on the menu year round. The front bar area has many tables that are first come first serve and is quite cute to dine in or sit at the bar. The reserved tables in the back are elegant with white tablecloths. The ciabatta bread is always yummy. The corn chowder is a favorite. Love the shrimp and grits. Flank steak is a favorite. Seasonal ravioli are always delicious. Their coffee is worth getting, along with dessert. I do miss the berry and zabaglione tart. Bread pudding is very close 2nd. Love taking visitors here.

We were at the Mill for brunch - I would say we enjoyed the meal but it’s pretty pricey for anything other than a special occasion - service was slow and didn’t really explain anything, refill, or offer to clean the table often enough. Not great service, not awful either.
