Great food. Scallops, steak, side and dessert were exceptional, especially their beignets. Appetizers just okay. Outstanding service and quaint ambience. Worth a trip to visit, highly recommended.

What an outstanding meal! The food was exquisite, the service impeccable, and the ambience perfect. The wine list is extensive and has some nice gems on there. All deserts are made in house and are fantastic! Just a great overall experience as we are wading our way back into restaurant dining after a year of COVID.

Always get the crispy oysters, they are the best thing on the app menu. For dinner: whatever the wild game plate is, is what you should order. Obv its not really wild game, but when else are you going to try the best prepared venison or bison or ??? not a red meat fan? go for the duck cooked medium->med well. It is always fantastic. Honestly, it doesn't matter what you order, it'll be really good. The chef understands how to pair things as well, so unless you absolutely have to, don't substitute any of the side items that comes with your entrée.

The food was outstanding. The service was top notch. My husband had the venison and I had the ribeye special with the Gorgonzola potatoes and the Swiss chard. Both meals were cooked perfectly. We also shared the fresh oysters, fried green tomatoes, and Bailey’s cheesecake which were all delicious and perfectly portioned. My husband’s old fashioned was great and my wine was lovely. It was the 2018 Walnut city Pinot Noir. Our server was personable, knowledgeable, funny, and attentive. I wish I had gotten his name. This restaurant never disappoints!

Food was delicious and we were able to have a choice of seating inside or out. It was really windy so we opted for inside, and we chose the sunny part with people-watching ops. The interior is pretty dark, but interesting to look at.

Everything tasted wonderful (bread, pork belly taco app, mushroom ravioli with scallops, grain salad with salmon). It was a great experience.

This was for my Lady's 60th birthday and Tuskies made it very nice including a happy birthday message for her on the menu. The service was outstanding. We had the fried oyster appetizer upon recommendation from our server and it was delicious, as were the Fried Green tomatoes.. Her filet and my special that night, a large Ribeye were done to perfection. Lastly she so enjoyed the Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse cake and even my coffee was simply top drawer.

I have lived in Northern VA all my life and hate to admit this was my first time here, but will be far from my last time

This restaurant had the best service I've experienced in years. Before I was even fully into my chair, several servers swooped in and put 4 menus and 4 glasses of water on the table. Service was incredibly attentive throughout our entire meal. I would barely take a few sips out of my water glass before it would get refilled. The sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and helped us choose a delicious bottle of local red wine - we appreciated that he recommended something local that we could support. Our server also refilled our wine glasses from our bottle when they would get low. The food was also outstanding. I HIGHLY recommend this place! I'll be back for sure.

Hubs and I met another couple friend of ours and the four of us had dinner. It was very busy however covid protocols were excellent. We had 2 appetizers, dinner and then shared desserts - everything was excellent! Hubs and I will be going back for a date night soon.

Expected better for a top restaurant...service was very transaction, and our server wasn't very personable and she didn't know about the food being served. The food was okay but bland. Crispy Chesapeake oysters came were soggy and not crispy because each of those four oysters sat on the creamy spinach for too long. The fried calamaries were also greasy and soggy, not crispy. The $11 baby wedge salad came with welted iceberg lettuce, and the server didn't offer to do anything like exchange for another salad...a big fail for a 4.7 star on OpenTable. The special fish entrée was over cooked and wife said, "no taste." My $40 braised lamb shank was very dry and tough, and I had to ask for more sauce. The brussels sprouts that came with my lamb were like so overcooked, it was mushy. The ambiance is ok and not really elegant. It's not worth the money and definitely not our favorite place. We do not recommend this restaurant.

We both decided to leave after an appetizers and not stay once we saw the price of the wine !!! The choices were not ample enough and the price per glass was too high. The price per bottle was insane . We both got beer . I just moved into Leesburg. I live across the street and I’m very disappointed because this would have been my go to spot several nights per week 😢
