Diner at it's best!

I review based on expectations and as diners go, this one is excellent. The blueberry pancakes were big and fluffy. Served hot with butter melting on the side. You must try the Homemade Hash. It was super with strings of corn beef all through it. The service was very good too.

I'm frequently in the area and always see cars around Becky's so I thought I would give it a try. Quaint diner atmosphere but the food was great and the server was extremely pleasant. I had a bowl of seafood chowder that was excellent! It came with a buttered biscuit and I was offered jelly or honey to go with... More

I've been here a couple times, it's a must go when your in Portland. I go for a traditional diner style breakfast in a great atmosphere and a fun local type vibe. The food is really good and the homemade blueberry muffins are delicious! Service is spot on as you'd expect. It can get really crowded on the weekend for... More

This place is your basic good diner. In a state known for its breakfast nooks, this place qualifies as a good place to get your hearty breakfast...Also can deliver a decent BLT and lunch fare, or a dinner of stick to your ribs comfort food. It's a place to hang out for a little bit.

Becky's has been on Commercial street for years and catered to fisherman with early breakfast service and has an "in" with getting the freshest fish off the wharfs!!! Her menu is well rounded and prices are very inexpensive compared to many other establishments in Portland. It has many daily specials and quite honestly I love their fish dishes - they... More

Great service, always busy. Breakfast is good. This is a diner, in the classic sense. This is your classic diner that you maybe thought didn't exist anymore.
