Becky's was listed as one of the best lobster rolls in Portland so me and my fellow Chubby Bunny went to check it out. Although the lobster was just average, the tuna melt was one of the best I've had. It was packed when we went, 2pm on a Wednesday in late September, with customers mostly twice our age waiting...

Saw the restaurant when we drove in to Portland. I LOVE a diner. Thought it would be a "gem" based on the reviews. It was unremarkable. Walk down the block because there are so many better choices.

This was my first visit to Becky's in several years. Took a client for breakfast and the food and service were disappointing. Our server promptly waited on us and brought food and beverages quickly, which was great, but we never saw her again until she brought the check. We ordered the special, which was bacon, eggs, and home fries. The... More

Becky's was recommended for breakfast. I can see why. The place was packed and there were people waiting to get in at 9am. We split the Titanic omelet which was very good and plenty for two. Waitress was very friendly and efficient.

We opted for lunch at Beck's Diner, while in Portland. We had a 15 minute wait, but then got called after 5 mins and asked if the counter was fine. Oh yes. My fiancee had the hot dog and fries, and I had the scrambled eggs, corned beef hash and toast. The food was excellent and the coffee was great.... More

Great old diner. It has good atmosphere and good service. The food was fantastic, get the lobster omelet! The omelet was stuffed with a 1/2 pound of lobster!

Becky’s is a comfortable, no-frills restaurant without pretense: a true diner. The menu is casual and broad. We chose a BLT and a club sandwich. Both were exactly what we expected. They contained ample fresh ingredients. For desert, don’t miss the house’s own Whoopie Pie! It was marvelous. The restaurant has an in-house bakery with a wide choice of pastries.... More

Lovely little diner, with friendly staff and a good selection of food. Fresh fish was great, and would recommend the apple pie!

We had lunch their on a weekday. They were busy but got a seat quickly, probably because there was only 2 of us. Had the scallops. Delicious. But then I decided to have a piece of German chocolate cake, we would share. Words cannot describe how delicious this cake was. I wish I could order it and have them ship... More
