Located near the center of town in the unique Market Station, Tuscarora Mill Restaurant offers its guests a variety of dining options- a restaurant, bar, café, and bakery. Housed in a grain mill originally built in 1899, Tuscarora Mill Restaurant's main dining room has an ambiance all its own. The broad timbers, belts, pulleys, and scales were left in place to keep the character of the old mill. Surrounding the main dining room is the more intimate porch with its hand painted murals depicting Loudoun County's landscape.
Tuscarora Mill Restaurant also offers the Garden Room, a bright atrium style room resplendent with hanging plants, locally hand crafted exquisite stained glass skylights, and hand ainted murals. The newest addition to Tuskies (as it is affectionately known by the locals) is the Vintage Room, a smaller, more intimate dining area which houses the fantastic wine cellar featuring over 5000 bottles of fine wine. And if you prefer a more casual setting, Tuscarora has its café area featuring 21 beers on tap.
Mill can accommodate your special events as well with our large party
rooms. Our menus are always available on our website for your convenience.
Whether it is a business lunch or dinner, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner
or wedding reception, Tuscarora Mill will work closely with you to make
the event flawless.
But of course the best reason to visit Tuscarora Mill is the food. Since 1985, Tuscarora Mill has offered seasonal specials featuring local produce. The menu offers a wide selection of vegetarian dishes, pastas, seafood, and meat dishes. From the Sesame Roasted Salmon to the Grilled Colorado Lamb Chop or the Roasted Long Island Duckling, you will find the food tantalizing, the service friendly & professional, and the ambiance unique.
A Brief History
Tuscarora Mill was built in 1899 to replace a similar grain mill which had been destroyed in the fire of 1898. First operated by William Jenkins, the building was originally located 300 feet to the south alongside the W&O Railroad line. The area was once a major business center in Leesburg. The Saffer family purchased the mill in 1917, and it became an old-time general store, serving as a popular meeting place for farmers, politicians and local businessmen, while selling seed, supplies, farm machinery and Tuscarora Flour to the community. Tuscarora Mill was in operation until two weeks before it was moved to its present site in 1985.
The character of the old mill was retained during the painstaking restoration - the massive timber construction (necessary to support the 300 ton full weight of the grain bins), old belts, pulleys and grain scale (which still works!). Are all original. The "wine cart" is actually a converted grain cart which was found during the renovation.
Other historic buildings which make up the Market Station complex include a freight depot and station-master's house, an eighteenth-century mill from Pennsylvania and a West Virginia log cabin dating back to 1840.
The name "Tuscarora" comes from an Indian tribe of the Carolinas which lived in Leesburg before migrating to New York in the 1760's. There is a creek south of town and a village across the Potomac River in Maryland which bear the same name.
Our customers come to Tuscarora Mill to dine, hold receptions and rehearsal dinners from all over Loudoun county, Fairfax County, and Northern Virginia including Leesburg, Ashburn, Sterling, Dulles, Hamilton, Purcellville, Lansdowne, Reston, Herndon, Chantilly, McLean, Great Falls, and Middleburg.
