Cheap eats, diner style, best for breakfast, when it is busy is line out the door time. Food is average near greasy diner stuff that is in many places in Maine. Waitstaff friendly and sometimes they are quick, others not so. It has been such an institution is this town that only the real blue bloods don't go there. In... More

Beckys is an institution. Most of the food is decent- good diner fare. They have lobster omelettes though which is amazing! Highly recommended.

It was very busy for breakfast and I just beat the rush. Very friendly staff and food came out fast. I had the lobster roll and home fries for breakfast. Lobster roll was awesome!

My family and I have been going here on our way to Camden Maine every year since we started to take the trip to Camden. The service is absolutely amazing and they are always polite, friendly, and efficient. The atmosphere in the diner gives one a perfect perspective of what Maine is. The food, especially the seafood is delicious and... More

Just a really delicious breakfast. Diner food done right. Especially that unforgettable homemade corned beef hash...the best I've ever had by far. Everything was great, from the eggs to the blueberry pancakes to the homemade wheat toast and of course those old-school milkshakes! It's true- Nothin's Finah! Can't wait to be back. Thanks Becky's!

The fried scallops are the best that I have ever had. Ever. And I live in Maine. There are a lot of places here to go for fresh... More

This is our third visit for lunch here as out of towners. Everything is always delicious. We had the pastrami and swiss cheese on rye and the crab and swiss sandwichs. Both grilled. Superb. Good food, good prices and excellent, friendly service. Quite the variety for all three meals. We could have had the pot roast special which was $7.95... More

This is the best place for lunch in Portland. Customers are everything from families to couples to fishermen to bankers. Parking is a bit of a hassle, and you may find someone has blocked you in (but the hostess will ask if your car is blocking someone so they can come get you if needed). Breakfast is available all day... More

Traveling to Portland each year we make a stop at Becky'd for breakfast! We have a large party of 7 and most often don't wait for more than 15 mintues for a table. Service is terrifc and the meals come out hot and fast! Don't miss the opportunity to have a big diner breakfast while your in Portland!
