My family and I have been loyal customers of The Greek Tycoon for many years. Each and every experience that we’ve had has been nothing short of amazing. Tom and his team never disappoint, the food is always fresh, delicious and prepared to perfection! We...have catered many different functions and The Greek Tycoon is always our first choice. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a wonderful culinary experience!More

We had not been to the restaurant for a meal in many years mainly because we don't live in Whitby and don't really eat out very often. However, when Covid hit we decided to shop local as much as possible and to do a take...out dinner from one local restaurant each week to help them survive. As can be expected, take out food is not always an indication of the quality you would normally get at a sit down, in restaurant meal. Food from different restaurants was okay but we still continued to help locally. One day I happened to be driving in Whitby near dinner time and saw the Greek Tycoon. Decided to give it a try. BEST FOOD DECISION IN MONTHS!!!! Not only the food is great but the staff we dealt with and the arrangements for ordering and pick up are stellar. We have enjoyed so many meals now that we have both agreed that the first restaurant we will visit in person once Covid is passed is The Greek Tycoon. Can't wait. I think it is due to become our favorite 'go to' restaurant. I can not think of a single criticism! Try it, you won't be disappointed. Stay safe, wear your mask, social distance!!!More

I decided to treat my family to dinner for takeout here since we use to go to eat in before covid. Tommy has the best set up all around, where else provides heat and shelter for you while you wait. Calling ahead made pick up...quick and easy. Everything was spectacular even after the drive back to Courtice the food was still fresh & hot. Nowhere else can compete with this place, truly miss the dining in experience.More

The Greek Tycoon is by far, my family's favourite restaurant in Whitby. We ordered dinner for 5 the other night for pick up. It was absolutely delicious as usual and ready to go exactly in time! If you are looking for great service, excellent food...quality and flavour, The Greek Tycoon is the place to go.More

This wonderful restaurant does serve desserts. The menu varies and each dessert choice is made in-house. I have enjoyed the baklava, the cheesecake and other assorted, yummy treats. A delicious way to top off a great meal!
