“Reliably good with great ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This restaurant is great for a date night or with a small group of friends. Its somewhat small but that is because it is built within a lovely and historic building which reeks of history. For those of us craving good food and good ambiance, and for when you just dont want to go to another chain restaurant, this is a great reminder that single location restaurants can do very well if they really try - and they do.

“Up and Down Food Selection for the Price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

A very nice setting and some of the food was amazing. However, other portions were a bit underwhelming for higher end price you're paying. Service was solid on the other hand.

“Excellent service and good food. An old standby delivers again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed lunch here two days ago while touring Leesburg, Va and the nearby Leesburgh Premium Outlet Mall. The food was delicious and the service was perfect. We have been here probably 5-6 times over the years and the restaurant alway pleases the palate with good food! Sad to say that the shopping district in historic Leesburg has continued to slip downward. There was a time when this was a real destination with antique shops, great restaurants, and unique trendy gifts. Not as true today. The Tuscacora Mill has successfully maintained its position. The restaurants in historic Leesburg don't seem to have kept in step and look yesteryear with little eye appeal. The clothing and antique shops are pretty boring. The Leesburg Outlet Mall, however, was really busy with robust buying. The mall has many well known shops, including Columbia Sports, Nautica, Polo, Saks, Chicos and many others.
Like most outlet malls, these stores do not carry the first line merchandise that the stores do in large shopping malls. But a few do including Columbia Sports. Still this is a bustling and vibrant shopping area. Again, when in Leesburg, the best outing is lunch or dinner at the Tuscarora Mill !

“Tasty Quality - Will Go Back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Let me start with the fresh bread, it's addictive. A nice Caesar salad complimented a very good sesame crusted salmon with Asian vegetables. I'll return soon for an encore!

“Consistent quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Tuscarora Mill ("Tuskie's" to its many regulars) has turned out consistently high-quality dishes, with an imaginative and diversified menu. Local favorites, such as corn chowder, grilled chicken with home-made pasta, and lamb-burger, have been there for decades, but there are always fresh fusion ideas as well. Service is attentive and professional. This is far-and-away the most enjoyable dining experience in Leesburg.
