Right in the heart of old town Leesburg, the Lightfoot is in a former bank building. It is elegant and charming at the same time! The food is delicious, and will not disappoint! It is a little on the expensive side, but it is worth it for that special celebration! We go for our anniversary, and it's amazing!

We have lived in Leesburg for over 20 years, and have been a regular customer at Lightfoot for just as long. Sunday brunch is one of our favorite meals, there are plenty of specials, the Mexican bowl is one of my favorites. The restaurant is gluten friendly - because they have a chef, many items can be made gluten free.

Visited for lunch with my Mother and two Sisters. I had the Beef tenderloin tips tacos with Caesar salad. Truly tasty! We also tried the fried green tomatoes. Friendly staff and manager gave us the history. Great place for lunch or dinner!

The prices were reasonable and they had some interesting drinks of the day! We finished dinner with a flourless chocolate cake which was divine! If you can't find street... More

We love Lightfoot as it is always our go to for amazing service, great food, and a memorable experience. This visit was no different, the service was excellent as always. We had an amazing table all set for our 20th Anniversary! We started off with the scallop appetizer which was delicious. We both decided to go with the night specials,... More
