Great Diner grub with locals

A popular locals spot down on the docks. Nearby fish markets give it some character. Expect to wait on busy weekends. The food is solid and a super value!

By far our favorite diner pancakes. I believe it was voted one of the top diners in New England and it truly earned it. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is always spot on. Only difficulty is parking sometimes, but we always make it work. Definitely worth going to.

Absolutely some of the most amazing muffins I have ever had. Blueberry and Cranberry Orange, both were amazing. Rest of breakfast was great, but worth going for muffins alone.

Our most favorite breakfast place in Portland. Big portions, kids friendly and delicious. I just wish the wait was shorter.

We were traveling with our teenage daughters and wanted them to have Maine lobster. Friends had given us several recommendations for fine dining in downtown Portland, but surprisingly, none of them had steamed lobster on the menu! Found Becky's through tripadvisor. They had 1 lb. lobster for $19.99. Delicious and we had to teach our daughters how to eat a... More

it was a good breakfast overall, however there is room for improvement! First the waitresses should be as sweet and smile as much as the hostesses. Second they should check on you after they serve the food. I had an amazing homemade muffin with millions of blueberries in every bite. Completely delicious. I also ordered a ham and cheese omelet...

We look for excuses to go to Portland so we can stop at Becky's for fish chowder! A big bowl filled with lots of super fresh fish, a nice, milky broth and not too many potatoes, served with a piece of warm corn bread is about the perfect winter lunch. Everything we've had at Becky's has been tasty, but it's... More

This spot was featured on diners, dives, and drive ins some years ago and we wanted to try it. Lives up to the hype! Pancakes were amazing and so was the lobster roll! A whole lobster per roll is what I like to see! Super servers as well. Make sure your entire party is there when u are getting seated... More

Great breakfast for some, lunch for others. We had eggs, bacon, toast, hashbrowns, BLTs, and haddock sandwiches! I've never been there when it wasn't busy. Locals and tourists alike come for the experience and leave happily satisfied. It's worth the wait, and you'll meet interesting people as your turn comes up. Sit in either a booth or at the counter.... More
