Great late breakfast.

Had a late breakfast at Becky's on Friday after a business meeting. Decided to go with the Titanic Omelette which sounded good and tasted good. Four eggs plus lots of meats and vegetables. The omelette was great and perfectly cooked. The waitress was efficient, friendly and funny. The omelette... read more

We first discovered Becky's Diner back in 2001. It has amazing breakfast foods. The best deal is the eggs, hash browns and toast. It is a funky little place so arrive early and expect a 10-15 minute wait. It's worth it. The staff is super friendly. Don't forget to order a grilled muffin to take with you for later... they...

We went about 15 years ago and revisited last weekend. Is just about the same! Had a 15 minute wait which is no big deal. Lovely eggs, ok potatoes...good service and strong coffee.

This is a great little dinner located near the Portland docks. Locals from fishermen to firemen stop by to have breakfast, lunch or just a good ole cup of coffee. I tried the Lobster Roll with a bowl of chowder and it was very good. It's not a fancy place but it does has a lot of character and definitely... More

IT is so nice to have fresh seafood when you go to a diner. I had a 1.5 pound lobster dinner with 2 sides and salad for less than half of what I paid at Di Millos floating restaurant. The atmosphere is certainly different but the food is great. I had a delicious piece of German Chocolate cake for dessert.... More

Been there often, terrific breakfast with gluten free pancakes for my wife, welcoming and excellent service from the staff and a traditional diner layout.

My husband and I are here on a recent trip to Portland. It was fine, but nothing worth returning for on our next trip. Very average, but the prices were great, compared to the pricier options around the city.

We tried Becky's Diner while in Portland because of Triple D being there (huge fan of the show). As some reviews say it is a busy happening joint but the staff works very hard to get everyone in settled and waited on. Food comes out swiftly as well. I can only review breakfast but this was one of two places... More
