“Best sandwich EVER!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Had lunch at the Tuscadora Mill yesterday and WOW, what a meal. The Barnyard Au Jus was absolutely the most delicious sandwich I have eaten in my life. No exaggeration. What an amazing combination of flavors piled onto Ciabatta Bread. My wife had their tasty Flank Steak salad and we split a big bowl of their first rate Corn Chowder. Topped off by great atmosphere and terrific service and we had an experience that will bring us back again and again.

“Great go to place in Leesburg”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Tuskies is great. The food is good and the service can be spotty but its a great place downtown where you can have a nice dinner or have a great beer or glass of wone in the bar. We like to go on the weekends and have lunch in the bar. I think I had the french dip last time and it was great!

“Really bummed about our dinner”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Perhaps our expectations were too high, but we were really disappointed with our dinner on Christmas Eve, so much so that we cancelled our New Years Eve reservation and ate at home instead.

For the food to note it was a prix fixe menu, but most of the items were from their regular menu. The appetizers were both quite good of scallops for me and a wild mushroom dish for my wife. My lamb was very good, her hand made ravioli were horrible and like we were eating rubber. If they had another veggie dish on the menu, I would have sent it back. The desert was a set of three chocolates that were average at best. The overall sense for the food was average fare but paled in comparison to some of the other local restaurants to include their sister restaurant Magnolia's at The Mill in Purcellville.

Our waiter was rushed around and it took about 15 minutes for him to retrieve a bottle of wine. Any ambience was lost as the seating was so tight that the chair backs hit each other in a normal seated position. To get into the chair we needed to slide across the first chair because they could not move back or forward enough to make room for very small people to pass.

Our expectations for the restaurant were very high. We waited for a special occasion to go and it was a big letdown for us. There was not a single WOW moment for the evening. I cannot recommend this restaurant, but I do love going to their bakery downstairs.

“Great service enhances a wonderful experience”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

A friend in the DC area who knows my fascination with old buildings and love of great meals suggested I visit Tuscarora Mill if only to see what they had done with the old mill structure. I knew the advise was good when I pulled up and it was underscored with the sign announcing a special pairing event based on Bacon and Beer, both of which I consider a basic food group. What made the evening a complete success was a great waiter who catered to us with just the right amount of attention and then went above and beyond the call of duty to bring a sample of the Choklat Stout which he further suggested might go great as a modified Black and Tan sort of after dinner drink. And it was! We ended up staying in the bar area after dinner to enjoy two of what I have coined the "Nikolas Digestif". Well done all the way around!
