I met a friend here for a beer and chat. Great atmosphere and the steak tip fondue was to die for. Looking forward to taking my bride here for an intimate dinner for two!

“Tuscarora Mill”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very elegant restaurant. This is definitely more of an adults type, special events place. A lttle too elegant for the average family style restaurant. Perfect for an anniversary or special night on the town. The price is reflective of the more elegant setting as well. As with many higher end restaurants you have gorgeous presentation but often smaller portions. You will have room for dessert here. Try it! You'll enjoy! Parking is a little walk but not bad, so be prepared for weather. Reservations are encouraged but the do accept walk-ins on an availability basis.Need a venue for an office party? They have an area down stairs that is great for small group get togethers.

“Good food, lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I came here for a business meeting/presentation. So I did not get to choose my own food. However we were served a delicious meal of salad, vegetable lasagna, and some sort of salmon. Everything was fantastic. We then received cheesecake for dessert. Besides Cheesecake Factory, that was the best cheesecake I have ever had at a restaurant. We were in the bottom of the restaurant and it was very rustic yet sophisticated. I'm sure it is pretty pricey to eat dinner here but I didn't get a chance to look at their regular menu

“Good food, a little loud”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

They have a nice selection of sandwiches and soups. Both have lots of flavor and the sandwiches have good bread. The service is quick, you order, sit down and they bring you your sandwich. It's loud and hard to carry on a conversation.

“Nice ambiance, good food, pricey”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

This was our first time eating at Tuskies after wanting to try it for years. We dined with 3 other couples, none of whom had been there before.

There are several outdoor parking areas close by the restaurant, as well as a parking gargage, so finding a spot should not be a problem. They do take reservations on Open Table, but you will have to call the restaurant directly for parties greater than 6, which is what we had to do. We made a reservation for 6:30 on a Saturday evening and we were seated as soon as we arrived.

The waitress got us all drinks right away and brought a small free hors d'ouvre sampler of toast points with tomato and cheese on top (very good) and bread baskets - one for each end of the table which was nice. The bread was excellent.

There is a good selection of craft beers and wine, although the beer is not cheap. I had 3 beers with the meal and those alone were $18.50. My wife and I had the spring roll appetizer, jumbo sea scallops, rib eye steak special and split a dessert - warm brownie sundae. The spring rolls were very good, a little spicey for my wife's taste. The scallops were excellent and my steak was good - not very thick but good flavor. It was cooked just as I asked (medium) but the steak, mixed vegetables and whipped cauliflower were all just warm on arrival, not hot. One of the other guests had the filet mignon and said it was excellent. Another in the group had the raw oyster appetizer (very good) and another the corn chowder (very good).

The service was excellent throughout the meal, with water glasses always topped off, and the waitress was very friendly. The restaurant was not so noisy you couldn't carry on a normal conversation at the table and the interior is very interesting - an old mill with lots of open timberwork.

Tuskies was very nice all around, and we all enjoyed it, but it is pretty expensive. The bill for my wife and I was over $100 and while it was very good, I thought $33 for my steak was too much. Most of the steaks were in the $32-$36 range and I've had some just as good for much less at other locations. I'd certainly recommend this place for special occasions, just be prepared for the prices.
