We have lived in Whitby for past 12 years and first visited Greek Tycoon the first month (our wedding anniversary). Many restaurants have come and gone over the years (including several Greek competitors), but Gus and Mary's Greek Tycoon have continued with consistent home-prepared food and service. Also great takeout alternative, good portion of their business model. Still one of our 3-4 choices of restaurants to eat in Whitby-Durham Region.

Was most impressed with the service at this restaurant. Ordered wine, saganaki, veggie platter and baklava and the food was very good. Good size portions of everything and was given bread to start.

We went to this restaurant several times for its atmosphere and love the fact they do not push you out the door at the end of your meal. Food is tasty and plenty for the most part, but the rice is bland and the vegetables come form a can. Once I ordered chicken breast and it was amazing, but I spent all night in the bathroom with a bad case of food poisoning (salmonella maybe?). The last time we went we ordered lamb chops. The server insisted we should get the roasted lamb instead. We should have clued in at that point but didn't and went with the lamb chops. They were nicely grilled, but smelled almost rotten - I can only assume they were kept defrosted for quite a long time and they started to turn. I wish they would have simply told us they are out of lamb chops rather than serve us rotten meat. We left, too grossed out to eat anything at that point. I would say that if you stay with mainstream dishes like souvlaki you will probably be OK but when you go into fancier, more expensive dishes which probably don't sell that often you may be in for a surprise.

We often dine here, so that should tell you something. Lots of food, absolutely excellent service. It is always crazy busy on the weekends, they do take reservations though. Go and you will be a return customer too.

Saw this in the Ports Cruising Guide, which stated 20min walk, as we are cruising around Lake Ontario. Great food, huge portions. We ordered a sampler appetizer in addition to our entrees, so we had plenty to carry out! Bread is fantastic: fresh, HOT! Will definitely be back if we make our way back again. Got crowded quickly on a Sunday night, but was also long weekend.
