“Totally pleased”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Couldn't get a reservation in the dining room due to reservations for Christmas dinner parties, but we were seated promptly in the bar area. It was actually fairly quiet and conducive to a pleasant dining experience. Service by Jeff was exceptionally prompt and courteous. Menu choices ran the gamut, and all looked well thought-out. Our table had the trout, ribeye and meatloaf. All were perfect: tasty, seasoned as they should be (the meatloaf had a hint of thyme - unusual but delicious), served promptly, hot, well presented. We hadn't been there for years, but will put Tuscarora on our regular rotation. Highly recommended.

“Food is Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Don't believe the reviewer who rated it 3 of 5 stars. This is by far our favorite restaurant in Northern VA. The food is exceptional (the waiter told us one of the reductions used in many of their sauces and gravies starts with 15 gallons of balsalmic and ends 3 days later with 1 gallon). The duck is wonderful, the carmelized beets with goat cheese dressing is amazing (and I grew up hating beets) and the meal is always an amazing experience. Love it love it love it.

“EXCELLENT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The food was exquisite. The beer selection was super. Hubs had the duck breast and I had the BBQ sampler and we shared the bread pudding. Everything was delicious. Service was impeccable, even on a very busy Friday evening.

“Beautiful Building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Pretty place, expected so much more for the price. I'd guess maybe a hair better than average? Service was good - but should have been.

“Great historic atmosphere and locally-sourced food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Tuscarora Mill was a culinary and sensory delight. Loved seeing the gears, pulleys, beams and grand earthy decor of an old grain mill from the 1800s turned upscale restaurant. Very authentic experience. Food was tasty and high quality. It's Zagat rated, too.

I had wild Salmon from Tasmania over puréed celery root and sautéed greens. My daughter had homemade pumpkin ravioli with a myriad of taste sensations including sherried goat cheese cream sauce and spiced walnuts and pumpkin seeds. Our extra ordered side of brussel sprouts braised with small pieces of slab bacon was especially scrumptious!

It's both casual and upscale. It's got depth and personality in the main room. The people are friendly. Our chargel was $75 before tip and that included two drinks. Clearly a special Leesburg dining event!
